There have been rumors that Whitney Houston had a secret love affair with her best friend Robyn Crawford. She now reveals details about the relationship in a new book that is set to be released next week. A Song For You: My Life with Whitney Houston, goes in depth about one of the greatest singers of all time. According to PEOPLE, Robyn wanted people to know the woman behind the voice.
“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.”
“It was during that first summer that we met, was the first time our lips touched,” she told NBC News’ Craig Melvin. “And it wasn’t anything planned, it just happened. And it felt wonderful. And then, not long after that, we spent the night together. And that evening was the night that we touched. And that just brought us closer.”
Robyn Crawford let it be known that their relationship went as far back as 1980 when Robyn was 19 and Whitney was 17. “We wanted to be together, and that meant just us,” Robyn stated. However, due to being a public figure in the 80’s, Houston ended the relationship for her musical career. “We wanted to be together, and that meant just us,” Robyn stated.
