Whitney 'made a gorgeous couple' with a girl
Gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell is convinced that Whitney Houstonwas in a lesbian relationship with gal pal Robyn Crawford
‘I met Whitney and her female partner at the Reach Out & Touch HIV vigil in London in 1991,’ he recalls.
‘It was obvious they were madly in love. Their intimacy and affection was so sweet and romantic.
‘They held hands in the back of the car like teenage sweethearts.
‘Clearly more than just friends, they were a gorgeous couple and so happy together.’
Peter, 60, believes Whitney started going off the rails after she gave Robyn up and married Bobby Brown.
‘The marriage was a disaster,’ he tells the Mail On Sunday. ‘Bad boy Bobby was never her true soul mate. Giving up Robyn – they’d been inseparable for years – must have been emotionally traumatic.
‘Whitney‘s life started going downhill soon afterwards.
‘It seems likely that the split with Robyn contributed to her substance abuse and decline.
‘There is a known correlation between denial of one’s sexuality and a propensity to self-destructive behaviour.’
