“She was acquiring issue halting,” Crawford alleges of Whitney’s drug use.
The singer’s longtime confidant not long ago reported, for the 1st time publicly, that the pair were fans in her new memoir “A Tune For You: My Existence With Whitney Houston.” In the book, she also addresses Houston’s issues with drug dependency.
In an appearance on “Dateline,” which was teased this early morning on “Today,” Crawford was questioned by Craig Melvin when she to start with thought Houston had a dilemma.
“I would remind Whitney that, you know, we mentioned doing coke could not go wherever we’re likely and we are already there. So we shouldn’t be executing it,” mentioned Crawford. “I would recognize that she would go ahead and do it. She was getting trouble halting.”
Melvin then introduced up claims from the guide that, despite general public perception, Houston’s drug use started just before she took up with Bobby Brown.
“Which is correct. She was not executing it [medicines] consistently, but she would do it in some cases and may well, you know — overdo it,” claimed Robyn. “But, you know, Bobby, he did not introduce her to cocaine, no.”
Regarding Houston’s tumultuous relationship to Brown, Crawford stated another guy in Whitney’s daily life tried to chat her out of it.
“She was much more intrigued in Eddie Murphy, but he was elusive.,” she wrote in the guide (by way of Folks), expressing Houston “misplaced herself” striving to pursue the comedian. The day of her wedding to Brown, Crawford claimed “Eddie Murphy referred to as to say she was creating a blunder … but she pressed forward.”
In another interview excerpt that aired previously this week, Crawford opened up more about their alleged relationship.
“Our friendship was a deep friendship. In the early element of that friendship it was bodily,” Robyn said, including, “We ended up intimate on quite a few concentrations, and all I can say is that it was extremely deep and we were incredibly connected.”
“I would say no 1,” when questioned who understood of their bodily romance, “It was ours.”
But the actual physical aspect stopped because “the tunes small business was a environment we ended up understanding and we did not want nearly anything to interfere with exactly where she was going,” discussed Robyn.
When asked why she wanted to share her tale now, Robyn made available, “I never envisioned speaking publicly about my existence and
then I requested myself the dilemma what would Whitney want. Would she comprehend the time is now.”
Robyn Crawford’s memoir “A Tune For You: My Lifestyle With Whitney Houston” is envisioned on shelves November 12.
