I was reading a paper this morning and I was kind of surprised when I learned that Whitney might have been in a lesbian relation with Robyn Crawford, her “assistant”.
It is written in Bobby Brown’s autobiography that Whitney married him to dispel lesbian rumours and that she was with Robyn Crawford, the “true love of her life”. Bobby wrote that Whitney probably wanted to clean her image because the media was accusing her of having a bisexual relation with Robyn. From what I heard in that article Whitney always dedicated her albums to Robyn.
I also learned that Bobby Brown’s sister tried to “out” her and Whitney’s bodyguard too.
What is sad is that homophobia contributed to Whitney’s fall. Sadly, she suffered family and church pressure to end her greatest love of all. She was afraid that the lesbian rumours would affect her career and image. Then, the marriage with Bobby happened and was a disaster. Whitney was previously wholesome and clean-living with Robyn and after the marriage with Bobby, she went on drink-and-drug binges – evidence of a troubled personal life and much unhappiness. Whitney was happy when she was with Robyn….
Did you know about that story?
Poor little baby… I miss you Whit!
