Whitney Houston's friend breaks silence on their romance

Whitney Houston's Best Friend Robyn Crawford Breaks Her Silence on Their Love Affair in New MemoirMore

Whitney Houston and best friend Robyn Crawford "wanted to be together", but the pop singer was afraid of what would happen "if people [found] out about us".

"We wanted to be together, and that meant just us".

The women met as teenagers at a summer camp in 1980 and began an intimate relationship, but it was cut short when Houston signed a record deal with Clive Davis at Arista in 1983.

Crawford wrote: "She was more interested in Eddie Murphy, but he was elusive".

"[That day] Eddie Murphy called to say she was making a mistake", Crawford writes, "but she pressed ahead".

In the big picture, I'm glad that Robyn Crawford is being public with this story and that we live in a time now where she can be and that we can see the secrecy of the past for how damaging and tragic it was.

"Whitney knows I loved her and I know she loved me", Robyn wrote.

Though Houston long denied rumors of her being lesbian or bisexual, two posthumous documentaries alluded to her relationship with Crawford: 2017's Whitney: Can I Be Me?

As for who knew about their romantic relationship, "I would say no one", Crawford replied.

"At the apartment we took off our clothes, and for the first time, we touched each other", she continues.

"As we eased out of it, our eyes locked, my nerves shot up, and my heart beat furiously", the book reads, according to an excerpt released by People on Wednesday. "And I felt an urgency to stand up and share the woman behind the incredible talent", writes Crawford. "We talked and talked, and then all of a sudden, we were face to face".

"I really feel that if Robyn was accepted into Whitney's life [by others], Whitney would still be alive today", he said. "We just enjoyed it".

"Caressing her and loving her felt like a dream", she writes.

Whitney's health and wellbeing would be on a slippery slope from then on and Crawford said that it was hard watching her friend becoming isolated.

Houston, who struggled with drug use, died in 2012 at age 48.

She hopes the book will remind people what a big hearted and generous friend she was. Crawford recalls telling Houston, "I'm going to look out for you".
