Cissy Houston opened up to Oprah Winfrey in an intimate interview that touched on her famous daughter, Whitney Houston’s sexuality. Cissy revealed that if Whitney had came out as being gay, she would have not been okay with it.
In the interview, which aired on Monday, the 79-year-old shared an excerpt from her book:
I knew I didn’t want Robyn around my daughter, and I told [Whitney] that. There wasn’t much I could do though. [Whitney] liked Robyn. She was past the age when I could forbid her from seeing someone. Kids have a mind of their own when they get older. They want to experiment with all kinds of things. And I don’t know if it was more than that.
“Absolutely,” Cissy said.
“You would not have liked that?”
“Not at all,” she responds.
“You wouldn’t have condoned it?”
