Robyn Crawford, shares her side in new book 'A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston'
After almost four decades, Robyn Crawford has answered the long-discussed rumours. In her new memoir, A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston (out yesterday), Crawford shares that she and Houston once had a romantic relationship.
Beginning in the ‘80s, the media often speculated about the nature of Crawford and Houston’s relationship.
In an interview with Lena Waithe for O, The Oprah Magazine, Crawford shared why she decided to tell her story now. “I had comfort in my silence for many years. When her daughter Bobbi Kristina passed [in 2015], that’s when I first really felt the need to stand up, hearing the way people were treating Bobbi, Whitney, our friendship, and their version of my story,” Crawford said. “And I felt the legacy of my friend was buried underneath all of that.” Crawford, now 56, was known for being Houston’s close friend and assistant. Houston passed away in 2012 at the age of 48.
