Bobby Brown Confirms Whitney Houston Had Lesbian Love Affair
Bobby Brown is coming off them secrets y’all! He’s got books to sell! After years of it being rumored that Whitney Houston had a secret lesbian romance with best friend Robyn Crawford, Bobby Brown is confirming the stories!
In an interview with US Weekly Brown opens up about Houston’s relationship with Crawford, her affair with Tupac and being Janet Jackson’s sidepiece!
“I know,” Brown, 47, tells Us exclusively of his ex-wife’s relationship with Crawford, 55. “We were married for 14 years. There are some things we talked about that were personal to us.”
The New Edition frontman alleges in his new book, Every Little Step, that Houston was bisexual. “I’m a man and she was attracted to me!” he tells Us.
Although the “I Will Always Love You” singer strongly denied the claims, Brown alleged it could have been because her family, including her mother, Cissy Houston, didn’t approve of the lesbian relationship — even insisting Crawford be fired. Cissy, 82, revealed to Oprah Winfrey in 2013 that it “absolutely” would have bothered her if her daughter was gay, and she would not have condoned it.
“I really feel that if Robyn was accepted into Whitney’s life, Whitney would still be alive today,” Brown says. “She didn’t have close friends with her anymore.”
After Houston’s February 2012 death from an overdose of cocaine, marijuana, Benadryl and Xanax, Crawford wrote in a piece for Esquire that the superstar was “a loyal friend” who “looked like an angel.” “I loved her laughter, and that’s what I’ll miss most,” she wrote.
Damn, that’s so sad. Whitney and Robyn’s friendship started when they were only teenagers, and worked together at a community center in East Orange, New Jersey. Robyn went on to become Whitney’s assistant and later creative director, traveling the world with her.
