According to a VanityFair.com report, in a new book written by Robyn Crawford, Whitney Houston's old childhood friend essentially confirmed the existing rumors that they had a relationship for years.

In her book, "A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston", Crawford writes that their first kiss was "long and warm like honey".

A new book by the late star's former lover Robyn Crawford, 58, claims 'Eddie Murphy called to say she was making a mistake, but she pressed ahead'.

She would go on to state their physical relation would end early, just after Houston signed with Clive Davis at Arista records.

She gave Crawford a Bible and "said we shouldn't be physical anymore, because it would make our journey even more hard", Crawford writes.


In her book, exclusively excerpted in this week's PEOPLE, Crawford shares the story of what it was like to be by Whitney Houston's side as she became a superstar. But even those in the archival footage seemed to confirm Whitney's relationship with Robyn, "I don't think she was gay, I think she was bisexual", Whitney's friend and stylist, Ellin Lavar said in the film.

"I really feel that if Robyn was accepted into Whitney's life, Whitney would still be alive today", he told Us Weekly at the time.

Houston and Crawford drifted apart soon after that, and Crawford writes that she was out to dinner when she acquired that Houston had tragically died in 2012.

Houston allegedly felt that if she maintained a romantic relationship with Crawford, her career would suffer.

One might exclusively guess how Cissy feels about Crawford's memoir, however different family members have been vocally supportive.


A file picture taken on October 1, 1991 in Paris shows United States singer Whitney Houston performing at the POPB (Bercy hall). "But we were that close".

Crawford is finally spilling the tea on their relationship, which she says was indeed physical, at least for a short while. She felt that Crawford had a level of control over her daughter that she did not understand.

"I wished to elevate her legacy, give her respect and share the story of who she was right before the fame, and in that, to embrace our friendship." she discussed.

The enduring singer died in February 2012 at the age of 48 after by accident drowning in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton resort, with heart disease and cocaine exhaust additionally contributing to her untimely passing. A Song For You hits shelves on November 12.
