Dionne Warwick has finally spoken out about allegations her sister molested singer Whitney Houston.

The allegations against Dee Dee Warwick were made in the new doccie of Whitney that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

In the documentary Whitney’s long-time assistant, Mary Jones, tells filmmaker Kevin Macdonald the late singer told Mary that Dee Dee molested her at a young age.

Whitney’s brother, Gary Garland-Houston, then also confessed he was molested between the ages of seven and nine by a female family member, adding that his sister was abused too.

For the first time since the allegations Dionne has now spoken out, dismissing all the rumours made against her sister who was 18 years older than Whitney.

“First of all, it’s totally hogwash,” she said in an interview on Larry King Now.

“My sister would never, ever have done anything to do any harm to any child, especially within our family. And for those lies to be perpetuated in this so-called documentary film, I think it’s evil.”

Dionne, who has hit singles such as That's What Friends are For and Walk on By, added she’ll never forgive those who have accused her sister. “I will never, and I mean this, ever forgive those who perpetuated this insanity.”

Following the release of the documentary, Whitney’s mother Cissy Houston admitted she learnt about the accusations two days before the film premiered on 16 May.

She then told People magazine she had difficulty believing Dee Dee would do such a thing. “We cannot overstate the shock and horror we feel and the difficulty we have believing that my niece, Dee Dee Warwick, . . . molested two of my three children.”
