Whitney Houston’s Friend Robyn Crawford Opens Lesbian Relationship!
Seven years after the tragic death of pop legend Whitney Houston, the truth about the “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” pop singer is revealed. Read on for more details on Whitney Houston Robyn Crawford Relationship…
CelebNMusic247.com reports that Whitney Houston’s so-called “best friend” and LOVER Robyn Crawford have written a new memoir called A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston.
Robyn Crawford is telling it ALL about her lesbian relationship with Whitney Houston which she says it began in the 1980s, it was romantic and sexual in nature.
In Whitney Houston’s early years of her career, she was always with Robyn Crawford, she was Whitney’s gatekeeper, closest confidante and most loyal protector.
Robyn was the singer’s romantic partner. Something she has never spoken about until now.
In her powerful new memoir A Song For You: My Life with Whitney Houston, excerpted in this week’s PEOPLE, Crawford, 58, is finally sharing her story — and their love story.
She recalls who Whitney Houston really was to her and who she was “behind the incredible talent.”
I’d come to the point where I felt the need to stand up for our friendship. And I felt an urgency to stand up and share the woman behind the incredible talent.
From the moment Crawford, then 19, first saw Whitney (then almost 17) in 1980 when they were both counselors at an East Orange, New Jersey summer camp, she told her, “I’m going to look out for you.
And that’s exactly what she did for the next two decades as Whitney became a global superstar.
We wanted to be together…and that meant just us.
Crawford reveals that once Whitney signed a record deal with Clive Davis at Arista, she ended the physical part of their relationship.
The singer broke the news by giving Crawford a gift of a slate blue Bible one day in 1982.
She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore, because it would make our journey even more difficult. Whitney said if people find out about us, they would use this against us. And back in the ’80s, that’s how it felt.
I kept it safe. I found comfort in my silence.
Crawford explains the pressure from Whitney’s family, including her mother gospel singer Cissy Houston.
Whitney told me her mother said it wasn’t natural for two women to be that close, but we were that close.
Their closeness spawned relentless speculation about Whitney’s sexuality for many years.
We never talked about labels, like lesbian or gay. We just lived our lives and I hoped it could go on that way forever.
But as Crawford writes so movingly in her book, that connection was just one part of her deep and lasting bond with Houston, who struggled with drug use and died in 2012 at the age of 48.
She concludes by saying:
Whitney knows I loved her and I know she loved me. We really meant everything to each other. We vowed to stand by each other.
