Cissy Houston, Whitney Houston’s mother, is coming out with a book that will offer some insight into the late singer’s troubled life, including the strained relationship between the two. Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, doesn’t approve of it.
As we also reported last week, Cissy was on Oprah’s Next Chapter to promote the tell-all, called “Remembering Whitney.”
The singer’s brother was also there for the interview, opening up about how he was actually the one who introduced her to heavy drugs like crack cocaine, and not her ex-husband Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina’s father.
Over the weekend, a visibly upset Bobbi Kristina took to her Twitter to plead with her Twitter followers not to buy the book – and to distance herself from it as much as possible.
“ANYTHING concerning mygrandmothersBook•I& @nickdgordon OFCOURSE personally haveNOTHING2dowith• I ask youplsRESPECT tht•Haven't read&won't•,” she writes.
Nick Gordon is her fiancé, the boy Whitney took in and treated like her adopted son, though she never filed the papers to legally adopt him.
The book is disrespectful to Whitney’s memory, Bobbi Kristina goes on to say but she stops short of explaining how she came to this conclusion, especially since she’s yet to read it.
“I find it 2B Disrespect2MYMOTHER & me being HERDAUGHTER won't tolerate it. I LOVEYOUALL for your support though & I thank you immensely••xO!,” she tweets.
In the aforementioned Oprah interview, Cissy went on the record saying that Bobbi Kristina had tried to discourage her from coming out with the book and even admitted that she knew she hated it.
Then again, it’s not like this is the first time these two disagree on something publicly: when Bobbi Kristina agreed to be on the family reality show “The Houstons: On Our Own,” Cissy tried to prevent her from being a part of it.
Neither did she approve of her romance with Gordon.
