I’ve got to admit, the older I get, the more I question things and don’t necessarily believe everything I see or hear. My friends joke me being a conspiracy theorist, but I’ve been called worse. There have been countless rumors in the music industry, like recording artist Tupac Shakur allegedly faking his own death. However, I came across some information regarding the late, great Whitney Houston that caught my eye. It was definitely one of those cases… where once you see it, you can never un-see it again.
Late one evening, while scrolling on my phone, I came across several video’s that allege that Whitney Houston wasn’t the biological daughter of legendary gospel singer Cissy and John Houston. I’d never heard that rumor before, and laughed when I read the title, but decided I had nothing to lose by watching it. The allegations are that the late actress Teresa Graves is the biological mother of Whitney Houston, but gave the child to John and Cissy Houston to raise as their own. I vaguely remembered hearing the late actresses name before, but didn’t have a clear memory of her.
Once I began watching the video, I was stunned at the uncanny resemblance that Teresa and Whitney share. It’s more than physical characteristics, it’s mannerisms, the way she carries herself, and when she sings… I had to shake my head in disbelief. It’s undeniable that there are more similarities than differences between the two. I even looked a few of their arguments up on the internet and I couldn’t find anything to challenge their points, By all means, I’m not saying that Whitney Houston isn’t the biological child of Cissy and John Houston, but after looking at the story… I have more questions than I started with. Do you think it’s a while conspiracy theory or do you believe that there could be some truth to the rumor? There’s an old saying… where there’s smoke; there’s fire!
