Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston’s cousin, says that she will no longer answer questions about the late singer.
Dionne Warwick, 71, who has given several interviews in the wake of Whitney Houston’s death, said that the star now “needs to rest”.
Whitney Houston’s cousin told Entertainment Tonight: “I think what we’re doing right now is the last time I’m gonna be doing this about Whitney. Whitney needs to be let go, she needs to rest and we all need to give her that solace.”
Dionne Warwick had earlier declined to take part in Oprah Winfrey’s recent TV special about Whitney Houston.
The singer previously revealed that she spoke to Whitney Houston just hours before she passed away in a Beverly Hilton hotel room on February 11.
Dionne Warwick also told Entertainment Tonight that she is pleased to be recording a new album, saying that the work has helped her cope with the tragedy.
“This is probably the best thing that ever could have happened – for me to be busy,” Dionne Warwick said.
“I want to have the peace that I know she is enjoying right now.”
