Talk about being in poor taste. Is this really the time for this guy to be talking all this yang? She didn’t like people talking this stuff when she was alive. She’s not even buried yet and folks wanna find reason to dig up old isht.
According to gay activist Peter Tatchell, Whitney Houston was a secret lesbian and binged on the drugs and alcohol that killed her because she was torn over living a lie.
Rumours have been circulating for 30 years that the singer had had a secret relationship with her ex-assistant, but her friends have now publicly spoken about her sexuality following her death.
Gay rights activist Peter Tatchell even said her marriage to Bobby Brown was a smokescreen.
‘It’s important to tell the truth about this aspect of her life,’ he told the Daily Star.
Whitney was happiest and at her peak in the 1980s when she was with her female partner.
‘They were so loved up and joyful together. Perhaps her inability to accept and express her same-sex love contributed to her substance abuse and decline.’
He added: ‘She was pressured into the Bobby Brown marriage. It was a disaster. Her life started going downhill soon afterwards.’
The British-based campaigner did not name the woman but other sources have said it was Robyn Crawford.
The pair had know each other since Whitney was 16 and Robyn dropped out of Monmouth College to work for the singer.
Just hours after her death, she wrote a Valentine’s Day-themed tribute to Whitney hours after she died, which was published in a U.S. magazine.
It said: ‘I first met Whitney when I was 16 and knew right away she was special.
‘Whitney was modelling and had peachy-coloured skin and didn’t look like anyone I’d ever met in New Jersey.
‘I can’t believe that I’m never going to hug her or hear her laughter again.’
The claims have also been backed up by Whitney’s sister-in-law and her ex-bodyguard Kevin Ammons.
Even her former husband Bobby has hinted their marriage was a cover-up for her desire for women.
Bobby’s sister Tina Brown said: ‘I saw her with a woman a couple of times.’
And Bobby, 43, wrote in his biography that the marriage was was ‘doomed from the very beginning. I think we got married for all the wrong reasons. Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married.
‘I believe her agenda was to clean up her image, while mine was to be loved and have children. The media was accusing her of having a bisexual relationship with her assistant, Robin [sic] Crawford. Since she was the American Sweetheart and all, that didn’t go too well with her image.
‘In Whitney’s situation, the only solution was to get married and have kids. That would kill all speculation, whether it was true or not.’
Her bodyguard wrote in his book about the star that Robyn slapped Whitney when she saw her flirting with men and was furious when she vowed to marry Brown.
And he claimed Whitney paid off ex-publicist Regina Brown to keep quiet about her affair with Robyn.
Whitney spoke out about the rumours in 2000, saying: ‘I am a mother, not a lesbian. I am not gay.’
Let’s be honest, nobody cares whether Whitney was gay or straight — it doesn’t make a whit of difference in how much we loved her and how talented she was. Shouldn’t this guy have more respect for the dead than to bring up something that obviously pained her?
