Preview: Robyn Crawford Elaborates on Whitney Houston Relationship in ‘Dateline’ Interview [Video]

Published: Wednesday 6th Nov 2019 by Rashad

As we reported here, late Pop icon Whitney Houston‘s best friend, Robyn Crawford, sent shock waves through the media earlier today when she revealed she and the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer were lovers.

Albeit a widely speculated love affair that plagued Houston for most of her career, Crawford had remained silent for decades about the true extent of her relationship with the top-selling diva – until now, as the November 12th release date of her memoir, ‘A Song For You: My Life with Whitney Houston,’ quickly approaches.  First dropping the bombshell via an interview with PEOPLE magazine, now the 58-year-old is on a media blitz to share more intimate details about her time with Whitney.

The most anticipated showing will undoubtedly come courtesy of her emotional chat with NBC’s ‘Dateline.’ Sitting down with resident interviewer Craig Melvin, Robyn divulged details about when she met Houston, how their relationship blossomed from platonic to romantic, and how it ultimately dissolved.

Ahead of its showing in full this Saturday (November 9) at 8/7c, see a preview inside:

  1. Okay? November 6, 2019

    But wasn’t she 19 and Whitney in 16?

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? November 7, 2019

      Yes that is very true but I think during the 80s a young adult dating a teen was acceptable just not talked about.

      • SMH November 7, 2019

        Wrong on both counts. Whitney was 17, the legal age of consent.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? November 7, 2019

        SMH you are wrong on this one. CNN, Fox News, NBC News, and several other well respected news sources report Whitney was 16 and Robyn was 19. 16 is NOT the legal age of consent in NJ. Do your research babe.

  2. ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? November 7, 2019

    I like how Robyn speaks. She is very articulate yet knows how to state exactly what she wants to say and nothing more. Hopefully, her book is not just about her hanging in the shadows of the great Whitney but also shed light on what Robyn accomplished in life professionally and personally.

    • ? The Real Jasmine’s Grape Juice ?? November 7, 2019

      Maybe you should sleep with Robyn oh wait your husband won’t even sleep with your fat asssssssssssssssssss

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? November 7, 2019

      IT is stalking me and still speaking to me. Can someone please appease this lonely MONSTER since TGJ has not banned IT yet? IT knows I dont speak to IT.

  3. Gee November 7, 2019

    Honestly the only reason why people are showing any interest in this book is because Whitney’s name is attached to it otherwise people could careless about Robyn or her life.

    • DioraCouture November 7, 2019

      I don’t detect a lie on your behalf, @Gee

      and quite frankly i don’t care enough to even read a free copy of this book….

  4. Fancy BISH November 7, 2019

    I’m here for all of this! Imagine being in love with one of the biggest stars in the world and having to hide that? Oh hell to the naw, tell your truth Robyn! People will never be able to take away what you and Whitney had ?

  5. MASHYU November 7, 2019

    Which lips touched tho? ??

  6. Njilf November 7, 2019

    She has a right to speak about it, but… it is so easy to speak when the other person cannot speak for hersef anymore.
    This to me feels like Leaving Neverland.
    Why now? Whitney never spoke about it.

    • #TheTruth November 7, 2019

      Exactly, Whitney never talked about it. So why is she making this public ?
      This is betraying her memory.
      She clearly needs the money and attention for that book.
      Who cares who Whitney was sleeping with ? Seriously, people are so messed up.

      • SMH November 7, 2019

        Wrong. If Robin wanted money she would have released this book after Whitney married Bobby. She;s not betraying anything, Whitney never spoke about it but she never denied it either.

    • MUSIC HEAD November 7, 2019

      Robyn loved Whitney too much to ever put her in the position to have to speak about this while she was alive. But all of the stories and documentaries since Whitney’s death had Robyn looking crazy. She owes it to herself to speak her truth while she’s still alive to speak for herself. Nothing wrong with that.

      • I Hate blaccc n whyyy y’all not sht November 7, 2019

        Bobby K is dead, so it’s fine Robyn talk about it

    • SMH November 7, 2019

      This is nothing like Lying Neverland, that show was complete fiction. Whitney never spoke about her “relationship” with Robin, but she also never denied it either.

    • Casual November 7, 2019

      @Njilf: I actually don’t have a problem with Robyn telling the story of her relationship with Whitney at this point. There isn’t really the scandal it would have been even 20 years ago, and many people already assumed they had a relationship back in the day.

  7. MUSIC HEAD November 7, 2019

    Much respect to Robyn. She kept Whitney’s secret while she was alive and hid in the shadows to protect Whitney even tho it tore her apart. Imagine watching someone you love deeply push you away and marry someone else, leaving the world to believe you were some obsessive homo freak who couldn’t take no for an answer. Robyn has done her part to respect Whitney and now owes it to herself to speak her own truth.

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? November 7, 2019

      That is not how it went down. Get your timeline straight. Whitney and Robyn were only together romantically as teens. During Whitney’s 20s she had relationships with men. Whitney did not start dating dating Bobby until she was 28. You skipped a whole 10 years of Whitney’s life to make a false narrative. Whitney marrying Bobby had nothing to do with Robyn.

      • MUSIC HEAD November 7, 2019

        Lil girl, go sit down. I guarantee you I know more about what I’m talking about than you do.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? November 7, 2019

        Im Still standing! Nobody that breathes the same air as me can tell me what to do! You have zero receipts. Thus, your opinions have no value. Your opinions are just idiotic ramblings. My opinions, however, are fully validates by receipts (public time stamps and factual events with dates). Thus, you should ‘sit down’ and take notes from me ?.

  8. I Hate blaccc n whyyy y’all not sht November 7, 2019

    Mariah Carey is a lesbian I saw her in bed with four women…

    . And her name is Whitney The voice Houston not the I Will always Love You singer…. Y’all keep hating on her.. legacy. they said she was sleeping with Angela Bassett 2…. Robin Crawford was her best friend .. I just can’t wait for the book,

  9. I Hate blaccc n whyyy y’all not sht November 7, 2019

    Robyn did Whitney come on to you first. Who made the first move???????

    • I Hate blaccc n whyyy y’all not sht November 7, 2019

      Did Bobby you and Whitney ever have a threesome???

  10. ERIC November 8, 2019

    When “truth” has profit attached to it, be very careful what you believe.

    • June Nelson November 11, 2019

      The truth, why all these people writing books and giving interviews after the person is dead?
      I feel I have to take their narrative with a grain of salt
