The sexuality of the late Whitney Houston is being questioned in a new documentary. For years, there have been unconfirmed rumors that the legendary singer was bisexual.
A new film titled “Whitney: Can I Be Me”, alleges that the [song] “Greatest Love of All” further explores this. The film suggests that the singer had an intense relationship with her personal assistant, Robyn Crawford.
Specifically, the documentary points to the behind-the-scenes drama of Houston’s 1999 world tour when her husband Bobby Brown and Robyn got into a brawl over the superstar. Filmmaker Rudi Dolezal said,
I think that Robyn was probably the only person at least I met who completely understood Whitney, and what Whitney was about. And I think that Whitney trusted Robyn 100 percent.
Allison Samuels, a writer in the film adds,
Robyn was the one who was keeping her together.
The two met in East Orange, N.J. as teenagers and were subject of rumors for years, even during her marriage. Security personnel Kevin Ammons said in the movie,
Robyn and Whitney were like twins. They were inseparable. They had a bond and Bobby Brown could never remove Robyn. He wanted to be the man in the relationship.
The film, “Whitney: Can I Be Me” opens in theaters this summer.
