Whitney Houston‘s best friend, Robyn Crawford has confirmed that they were romantically involved in a relationship while the singer was alive. Robyn revealed this in her forthcoming memoir that she and the late singer had a physical relationship, which she says ended over worries about how it would affect Houston’s career.
The memoir is titled “A song for you: My Life With Whitney Houston” – Here is the extract referring to her relationship with Whitney Houston in the book:
“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.“Something was happening between us. We never talked labels, like lesbian or gay. We just lived our lives, and I hoped it could go on that way forever.”
Crawford and Houston first met as teens in the summer of 1980 in New Jersey, where they were both counselors at a summer camp.
