Robyn Crawford, the woman who was closest to Whitney Houston and was rumoured to be her lesbian lover, is breaking her silence.

Crawford has written a memoir called A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston, set to hit bookshelves on November 5, which will detail “the moving and often complicated story of her life and relationship with Whitney”.

Crawford is said to have been someone who has ‘stayed out of the limelight and held the great joys, wild adventures, and hard truths of her life with Whitney close to her heart.”

“With warmth, candour, and an impressive recall of detail, Robyn gives readers insight into Whitney’s life and career,” publisher Dutton said. “She traces the years from when she and Whitney first met as teenagers in the 1980s to the recording of Whitney’s first album and the infinite success that followed.’’

“From countless sold-out world tours to her epic rendition of the US national anthem to the set of The Bodyguard, her tempestuous marriage, and the birth of her only child, Robyn was there,” it said. “Finally, the person who knew her best sets the record straight.”

Last year a documentary called Whitney detailed the singer’s long-rumoured bisexuality.

In the documentary, Whitney’s former bodyguard David Roberts said that Crawford and Houston’s husband Bobby Brown would have physical fights over their shared loved of the singer.
