Sources claim Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick are upset with Clive Davis over his plans to produce a warts-and-all biopic of Whitney Houston…
The late diva’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, prostate 20, supports a warts-and-all biopic being developed by Whintey’s mentor, music mogul Clive Davis, sources say. But Whitney’s mother Cissy and her cousin Dionne Warwick strongly oppose the project unless they’re given full creative control, adds the source.
“Clive is not giving in to their demands,” said an insider. “He’s told Whitney’s family that this movie is a labor of love for him, and he’s calling all the shots.”
Davis wants multitalented Tyler Perry, the writer/producer and star of the “Madea” movies, to direct the film, with “Anchorman 2” actress Meagan Good playing Whitney according to the source.
But Warwick apparently has other ideas, insisting that Davis consider Whitney’s “Sparkle” co-star Jordin Sparks as well as pop star Rihanna. “But Clive has blown Cissy and Dionne off,” the insider added.
