Robyn Crawford Confirms Romance with Whitney Houston


Earlier this year Whitney Houston's former constant companion Robyn Crawford announced she was writing a memoir about her life with Whitney [click here if you missed that].

In the book, out this week, Robyn confirms their long rumored relationship...

In an excerpt of 'A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston' obtained by People Magazine, Robyn writes about their romance, brief physical relationship and eventual vow to abstain shortly after Whitney signed her record deal with Clive Davis at Arista in 1982.

Robyn writes,
“She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore because it would make our journey even more difficult. She said if people find out about us they would use this against us, and back in the ’80s that’s how it felt.”
“Whitney told me her mother said it wasn’t natural for two women to be that close but we were that close.”
“We wanted to be together and that meant just us.”
“We never talked about labels, like lesbian or gay. We just lived our lives and I hoped it could go on that way forever...”

Fun Fact: The rumors that Robyn was writing a book first popped up back in 2012 shortly after Whitney's death [click here and here if you missed that].

I'm am an out-of-the-closet lesbian and am an advocate for others coming out of the closet, but Robin should have written this when Whitney was alive or she should not have written it at all. We all should be allowed our secrets—even Whitney.

If Whitney didn't want to discuss this, then no one else should, either.

Somehow I wish she would've kept this to herself, but it is what it is. Whitney couldn't be her REAL self in this crazy ass industry, that's why Bobby hated Robyn so much & told her they were NOT gonna share Whitney. He knew the truth.

It was definitely hard for Whitney to deal with her manufactured image.

I believe Whitney not be allowed to live as her "true self" led to her spiraling out of control emotionally. Live your life people, so you can save yourself.

RIP Whitney.

If they had left Whitney alone about her sexuality .we would probably still have her.it is the equivalent to coming out to your family except it's the world.even though it ain't the world's business.

We all heard the rumors, Robin should now keep quiet out of respect for Whitney, as Whitney is no longer with us. It's so sad Whitney could not live her truth, I can't imagine the pain of living a lie. RIP beautiful Goddess.

When motherfuckers go broke they will sing like birds. Bobby was busy dicking Whitney down and she was busy calling Robin's name. Welp enough to drive him to the bottle. Her to everything else and Po lil Bobbi Kris seeing all that shit.

Robin is beautiful. Honestly, had Whitney lived her truth, she probably would have been happier with Robin. But Robin probably came out right now because it was never a good time for her. People need to understand that elderly and Baby Boomer LGBTQ people aren't as open as this new generation where they come out on Instagram with bells and whistles. I'm bisexual and 34 and still haven't told anyone but my bisexual cousin and the people in my support group.

Whitney has always given off bisexual energy. I never really believed she was 100% hetero. Too bad these two couldn't live their truth while Whitney was alive.

I wish these folks would just let Whitney rest. Nevertheless, that doesn't take away from her greatness.

Thats Robyns truth, she can speak on as long as she wants to. She respected Whitney by not saying anything about their relationship while she was living. Robyn has her truth as well as Whitney and all the people that wanted WHITNEY to HIDE, NOT ROBYN. Nobody should deflect her feelings and her truth just cause Whitneys camp didnt want to talk about it. Boom Whitney was NEVER her true self except when she was with this WOMEN. Speak your truth Robyn.

Robyn kept quiet for Whitney for years! She protected her secret for years. At the expense of her own happiness. Whitney is gone and Robyn has the right to tell HER story. Whitney wasn't the only one in the relationship. If Whitney didn't want anyone to know she was bisexual she shouldn't have acted on those feelings.

no wonder whitney had a drug problem!!! everyone in her life was a PARASITE

No!!!!!! said...

this woman could have been just as bad for whitney as BOBBY BROWN!! its unfair to say Whitney didnt live her truth!! no one knows because only the people that ATE OFF OF HER are here to tell her story!! if she loved whitney she would have protected her memory!! if whitney wanted us to know this she would have TOLD US WHEN SHE SAT DOWN WITH OPRAH

I am side eyeing Robin for writing a book and SELLING it. She could have just wrote an entry on Facebook and called it a day. SELLING the story just seems wrong.

Driven by money...period

We got to get to a point where who someone sleeps with is not news. If consensual adults choose to have sexual contact with each other it is not a headline.

Or..... Robyn is lying to sell books.

Even though this was always an open secret in NJ, Robyn should have left this alone. You have your memories, but this ain't it, baby.
