Whitney Houston’s Girlfriend, Robyn Crawford, Opens Up About Secret Romance With Singer: ‘It Was Physical’
Whitney Houston’s longtime girlfriend Robyn Crawford says that she and the legendary singer had a secret romance.
On November 12, Crawford will appear as a guest on TV show, Dateline, where she will talk about how she and Houston were far more than friends.
“We were intimate on many levels and all I can say was that it was very deep and we were very connected,” she told Craig Melvin on Dateline. “Our friendship was a deep friendship. It was physical.”
In Crawfords book, A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston, which is expected to be published on November 12, 2019, she writes, “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.”
Crawford waited seven years after Houston’s death to talk about the details of their love affair.
“That first summer that we met was the first time our lips touched … and it felt wonderful,” Crawford says on Dateline. “Not long after that, we spent the night together.”
The 58-year-old said that they stopped being physical due to fear following Houston’s rapid growth of fame. However, they remained friends.
“[Houston] said, ‘I don’t believe we should be physical anymore,’ ” Crawford recalled. “The music business was a world that we were learning and we didn’t want anything to interfere with where she was going … I just felt I wouldn’t be losing much. I still loved her the same and she loved me and that was good enough.”
