(Ace Showbiz) – Lifetime’s “I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story” faces opposition from the late singer’s other family member. Whitney Houston‘s mother Cissy is pleading the cable network to cancel the biopic that will focus on Houston’s tumultuous relationship with former husband Bobby Brown

“Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections,” Cissy told Entertainment Tonight. “In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her.” 

She continued, “I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her. We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please please let her rest.”
