I must tell you how painful it is to see one of your idols die in the public eye, so relatively young..But in order for the public to understand and to stop homophobia; the story must be told..The evidence of Whitney being a lesbian is told by many people..Even though Whitney denied it; she left a door open to contradict her own words..Her own ex-husband, Bobby Brown, tells it all..Robyn Crawford was her assistant for many years and also her lover according to the music industry and others..But when Robyn Crawford spoke about her..She stopped short of telling her intimate love for Whitney..Perhaps one day Robyn Crawford will tell us in a tell all book..Unlike Marilyn Monroe’s bisexuality that the straight community hid for dear life..Whitney Houston’s lesbianism can not be so hidden..We live in a more transparent age; where being gay is more accepted..
But Cissy Houston, her mother, even told Oprah; she wouldn’t have approved her lesbianism..This leads us to believe that Whitney’s own mother and family; where a problem for her..Whitney could not be herself; which most likely led her to mask her deep pain with heavy drugs..The fact Whitney Houston, the music icon, being gay will rock the African American Straight Community for years..If they ever accept what is true..The following is evidence from many :
The rumor was easily fueled because Whitney Houston shared an apartment with her friend, Robyn Crawford even though she was certainly rich enough to live alone, having already sold 13 million records and scored three No. 1 hits with her debut record from 1985.
According to several gossip reports in recent years, it was common knowledge that Whitney and Robyn Crawford were together; blogger Daryl Deino wrote in 2009: “Anybody who works in the recording industry knows about Whitney and Robyn’s relationship; they barely did anything to hide it during recording sessions.”..(You can’t fight it; when you have a direct witness or witnesses)..
When she divorced Brown in 2007, the lesbian question began to resurface, in part thanks to Brown himself: in a “tell-all,” he addressed the gay rumors..IN BOBBY BROWN: The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing But…, an authorized biography, Brown said that the marriage was “doomed from the very beginning. I think we got married for all the wrong reasons. Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married …I believe her agenda was to clean up her image, while mine was to be loved and have children. The media was accusing her of having a bisexual relationship with her assistant, Robin [sic] Crawford. Since she was the American Sweetheart and all, that didn’t go too well with her image … In Whitney’s situation, the only solution was to get married and have kids. That would kill all speculation, whether it was true or not.”..
Beyond her friendship with Crawford, the lesbian reports were also fueled by supposed sightings of Houston and Kelly Mc Gillis. In the ’80s and ’90s, McGillis was best known for playing Tom Cruise’s flame in Top Gun. Houston, it was said, regularly visited McGillis in Chicago in 1991; when McGillis was filming The Babe. McGillis was in the closet but rumored to be a lesbian in Hollywood entertainment circles; she came out in 2009.
On Rosie O’Donnell’s show on OWN, Sandra Bernhard, a well known lesbian comic, stated something to the effect that Whitney Houston’s demise stemmed from the inability to accept her sexuality and the weirdness that resulted from that.
Whitney’s bodyguard Kevin Ammons wrote in his book that Robyn Crawford slapped Whitney; when she saw her flirting with men and was furious; when she vowed to marry Brown..Also, he claimed Houston paid off ex-publicist Regina Brown to keep quiet about her affair with Crawford..(I read Kevin Ammons book many years ago..He exposed everything about Whitney)..
Here is Robyn Crawford’s, Whitney’s ex-lover, statement after Whitney’s death. She stops short of telling us the intimate details..“I have never spoken about her until now. And she knew I wouldn’t. She was a loyal friend, and she knew I was never going to be disloyal to her. I was never going to betray her. Now I can’t believe that I’m never going to hug her or hear her laughter again. I loved her laughter, and that’s what I miss most, that’s what I miss already.”
I do believe Whitney Houston was in better hands with Robyn Crawford before she married Bobby Brown without the hard drugs..After she married Bobby Brown; Whitney’s career and personal life fell to extreme low levels..But the pressure of Whitney’s mother, family, record label and her church kept her from really having a fulfilled, happy, normal life with a woman..People must not create such pressure again or we will loose more loved ones, icons and friends to drugs and suicide..
Acceptance of people’s sexuality is the key to happiness..
