New Book Speculates on Whitney Houston’s Bisexuality
A new book just out about Whitney Houston’s troubled daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown purports that Houston’s bisexuality was real, as all the rumors speculated while the superstar was alive.
The book is called, “Bobbi Kristina: The Deadly Price of Fame,” and it is written by Ian Halperin. It talks about Bobbi turning to drugs and suicidal tendencies at age 14 and how her mother and father, Bobby Brown, were not around her very much to keep her grounded.
The book blames Whitney’s distractions on Robyn Crawford, who was an openly gay marketing consultant. Crawford met Houston when she was only a teenager and the book claims that is when the strong relationship generated between them.
Bobby Brown told the author that Whitney decided to marry to hide her bisexuality.
“The media was accusing her of having a bisexual relationship with her assistant. In Whitney’s situation, the only solution was to get married and have kids,” Brown is quoted in the book as saying.
