New Documentary Claims Whitney Houston Was Bisexual
On the heels of TV One announcing their Bobbi Kristina biopic, a new documentary is claiming Whitney Houston was bisexual.
“Whitney: Can I Be Me” premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday night and it rehashes the rumor and details Nippy’s alleged romantic relationship with her bestie and assistant, Robyn Crawford.
Among never-before-seen footage taken throughout the legendary singer’s tumultuous life both on stage and behind the scenes, the film offers a sensitive, trenchant examination of the star’s relationship with Crawford, long a topic of innuendo.
While it appears Crawford herself was not directly involved with the new documentary, the work features new and archival in-depth interviews from family members, friends and those closest to Houston and points convincingly to signs that Crawford’s relationship with Whitney was more than platonic, and that her eventual exile from Houston’s life was an overt factor in the singer’s undoing.
“I don’t think she was gay, I think she was bisexual,” Houston’s longtime friend and stylist Ellin Lavar says in the film. Lavar adds: “Robyn provided a safe place for her…in that Whitney found safety and solace.”
The film shows that the late Houston, who first met Crawford as a teen in East Orange, New Jersey and was later married to Bobby Brown for 15 years from 1992–2007, was often in the middle of a contentious relationship between her husband and Crawford.
As you can imagine the Houston family is outraged by the documentary.
I don’t care if Whitney Houston was trisexual – she’s gone and deserves to rest in peace.
