Whitney Houston's family members are still grappling with claims that the late singer was molested by her cousin, Dee Dee Warwick-an accusation brought to light in the new documentary Whitney.

The claims were made in Whitney, Kevin McDonald's documentary feature about the singer, who died in 2012 following a history of drug use.

In a statement to People magazine on behalf of herself and sister, singer Dionne Warwick, Cissy Houston revealed they first learned of the claims two days before the documentary "Whitney" premiered in May. "I've been told - as justification for the invasive theme of this film - that Whitney was a public person and therefore the public has a right to know any and everything about her".

Whitney Houston's mother says allegations that her superstar daughter and her son were molested by her niece are "unfathomable".

"We can not reconcile the Public's need to know about Whitney's life as justification for invasion of her privacy or the charge against Dee Dee, a charge which neither Whitney nor Dee Dee is here to deny, refute or affirm", the statement continues.

She adds that she, Dionne and Whitney's brother Michael had never heard of the allegations before. "Dee Dee may have had her personal challenges, but the idea that she would have molested my children is overwhelming and, for us, unfathomable".

"After people have seen the film they will draw their own conclusions and we are not trying to change that", they conclude. "While the filmmakers certainly had the legal right to make this film, I wonder at the moral right". Their full statement is available to read here. Whitney is now playing in theaters nationwide.
