Almost eight years after the world was stunned by the news that Whitney Houston had died at the Beverly Hills Hotel during Grammy Awards weekend, her best friend, Robyn Crawford, is sharing surprising stories about the singer.
The pair met as teenagers while working as at an East Orange, New Jersey summer cam.
Houston declared that they could no longer be physical among them because it would make their lives more hard, and in the 1980s, Crawford felt the same. Robyn says Whitney wanted to keep things on the down-low, yet people we've spoken with who were close to the singer say she often flaunted her relationship with Robyn in public. I kept it safe.
Over the years, however, Crawford said that she and Whitney "never talked about labels, like lesbian or gay". We correct lived our lives and I hoped it could perhaps perhaps prance on that manner without kill'. "We vowed to stand by each other".
"She asked how I was doing, and I stopped her, saying, 'I want to hear how you're doing, '" writes Crawford.
Interestingly enough, the Grammy winner's ex-husband, Bobby Brown, shared the same sentiments in his 2016 memoir, Every Little Step: My Story, in which he confirmed his ex had a relationship with Crawford.

Cissy eventually came to grow a likeness for Crawford after seeing how good of a friend Crawford was to her daughter.
Crawford's memoir will lay to rest speculation that has gone on for so many years, even while Houston was still alive, and it sounds likely it will do it in a way that will truly honor the late icon, rather than just be cheap tabloid fodder.
Whitney reportedly instructed Robyn that her mother Cissy Houston stated "it wasn't pure for two females to be that shut however we had been that shut".
Another more sensational 2017 biopic that aired on Showtime, "Whitney: Can I Be Me?", inconclusively speculated that Whitney and Robyn might have been lovers.
