Media has been gossiping about Whitney Houston sexual orientation, her fake marriage to Bobby Brown and her alleged gar relationship with her former executive assistant and long time friend Robyn Crawford, are they right? Or is it the most ridiculous and disrespectful gossip ever?
The DailyMail, PopCrush and other media have been talking about Whitney Houston and her dear friend Robyn Crawford being lesbian lovers, this rumor haunted the duo once back in the late 80’s both denied it and both also denied being lesbians. Her former bodyguard and even e-sister in-law (Brown’s sister) said she was into women, and Bobby Brown talked about Whitney marrying him to clean her image in his book,
“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.”
In an article published by Time Magazine in 1987 Houston and Crawford said..
“I tell my family, ‘You can hear anything on the streets, but if you don’t hear it from me, it’s not true.’ ” RC.
“My mother taught me that when you stand in the truth and someone tells a lie about you, don’t fight it. I’m not with any man. I’m not in love. People see Robyn with me, and they draw their own conclusions. Anyway, whose business is it if you’re gay or like dogs? What others do shouldn’t matter. Let people talk. It doesn’t bother me because I know I’m not gay. I don’t care.”
“I will close with one comment: If I really wanted to clean up my image, marrying Bobby Brown is probably the exact opposite of what I would do. I think that book should have been filed in the fiction section for that assertion alone. In fact, I think I would just drive off into the sunset in a Mercedes with my personal assistant at my side.” WH
The news about Whitney’s alleged lesbian affair with Robyn Crawford came to the light once again when Peter Tatchell talked to the DailyStar..
“It’s important to tell the truth about this aspect of her life, 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. She was pressured into the Bobby Brown marriage. It was a disaster. Her life started going downhill soon afterwards.”
Robyn for her part released a tribute to her dear friend, that some think might be suggestive to their secret relationship. According to other reports Whitney’s mom dislike Robyn, once told her daughter to get rid of her because she ruined her career, she found weird they were so close, and once hit Crawford in the yaw when she slapped Whitney in the face at the 1991 SuperBowl where she sang the National Anthem.
The whole incident began when Robyn caught Whitney talking with M.C Hammer and became jealous.
After Hammer left, Robyn went and grabbed Whitney’s arm and pulled her aside and started screaming at her. Allegedly, Robyn screamed, ‘Don’t ever disrespect me like that,’ Whitney allegedly jerked away and told her to go to hell and Robyn hauls off and slaps Whitney. Cissy Houston allegedly yelled, ‘don’t you ever put your hands on my daughter.’ Then wham! Cissy slugs Robyn in her right jaw with her fists and Robyn falls to the ground and Cissy kept punching and kicking her, yelling, ‘I’ll kill you, you stupid b**ch!
Whitney publicist Regina Brown once said the condition for working with the singer was no to never talked about Robyn Crawford to anyone, she was kept quiet by Whitney allegedly with expensive presents, “A gold Mercedes-Benz, a diamond studded cross, a corporate credit card, a calling-card account, diamond earrings, free air travel, $125,000 a year salary and free rent on her luxurious apartment.”
So what else is there about Robyn Crawford? Well, we all know from Robyn that she met Whitney when she was 16 while both attended at Mount Saint Dominic Academy, both from New Jersey. Robyn dropped down from Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois to become Houston assistant, she then was named her executive assistant and ultimately creative Director, that was until her resignation in 2001.
“This is from Robyn Crawford transcript about Whitney Houston..“We went around the world. I was her assistant and then her executive assistant and then her creative director. I was her point person for the day-to-day. I traveled all around the world first-class and anyone who ever worked for her will tell you her checks never bounced. You knew she was going to take care of you. She wasn’t going to be in a five-star hotel while you were in a two. I flew the Concorde the way some people ride the bus. She shared the fruits, and she changed a lot of lives. The record company, the band members, her family, her friends, me — she fed everybody. Deep down inside that’s what made her tired.”
