"She said that if people found out, they would use it against us," said Ms. Robyn Crawford. "In the 80s, it felt that way."
Robyn Crawford and Houston met when the singer was 17 years old and she 19 when they both worked as counselors in a summer camp in the state of New Jersey, and from that moment they became inseparable.
"We wanted to be together, and that meant only the two of us," said the author of the book, which comes to light seven years after Houston's death caused by an overdose.
Whitney, he says, ended the sexual aspect of their relationship in 1982, shortly after signing a contract with producer Clive Davis, founder of the Arista record label.
The interpreter of ‘How Will I Know’ she gave him a blue bible to communicate his decision, and argued that with that kind of relationship “the road would become even more complicated”.
Both of them shared a friendship so close that it was the subject of constant rumors that they were actually a couple and had a romantic relationship, although Whitney Houston always denied it.
Crawford also says that there was also a lot of pressure from the artist's family, including her mother, gospel singer Cissy Houston: "Whitney told me that her mother said it was not natural for two women to be such intimate friends." .
She also points out that they never talked about "labels as gay or lesbian": "We simply lived our lives and I hoped it could continue like this forever."
