84-year-old Houston family matriarch, Cissy Houston, is reportedly battling the early stages of dementia.
via Radar Online:
“She’s in the early stages of dementia,” a source told Radar of the Grammy-winning Gospel singer. “She repeats herself a lot and doesn’t remember what she says. She just says she’s getting old.”
Recent claims made by Whitney’s brother, Gary, that he and his songstress sister were molested as children by their cousin, Dee Dee Warwick, have made her health woes more of a concern for family.
“The family is already fractured enough,” said the source, “but she has had enough clarity to know what’s going on with these claims and is very upset.”
The accusations come from a new documentary, Whitney, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
The timing of this ‘revelation’ seems rather odd, but we’re not hear to question anyone’s health battles.
