“I don’t think she was gay, I think she was bisexual,” Whitney Houston’s longtime friend and stylist Ellin Lavar says in the film. He adds: “Robyn provided a safe place for her…in that Whitney found safety and solace.
“Robyn and Whitney were like twins,” says Kevin Ammons, who worked security for Houston. “They were inseparable. They had a bond and Bobby Brown could never remove Robyn. He wanted to be the man in the relationship.”
“Bobby Brown and Robyn Crawford were like fire and ice. They hated each other,” says David Roberts, Whitney’s former bodyguard whom The Bodyguard was loosely based.
“They’d battle for her affections. Bobby and Robyn had some physical altercations and there were times where he wasn’t always the winner. But then Whitney would always come and pour oil over troubled waters,” he adds.
After Robyn left, that’s when Houston’s “downfall” began, according to Lavar. “That was the downfall of of Whitney. Robyn was the person who was keeping her together,” Lavar recalls.
In 2013, Whitney’s mother Cissy Houston told Oprah Winfrey that it “absolutely” would have bothered her if her daughter was gay.
Cissy also wrote in her 2013 memoir, Remembering Whitney, about her daughter’s relationship with Crawford. “I just didn’t want her with my daughter,” she wrote. “I know nothing about a romantic relationship. That’s what everybody said but they didn’t know either.”
The family in the Showtime doc continue to dance around the notion that Houston and Crawford had an intimate relationship.

“But the thing is, it’s a really old bag,” she reasoned. “It was my first Birkin bag that I ever bought. You would never really buy that huge size, but that’s all they had and I just wanted one so badly and I’d saved and saved and that’s all they had and I took it.”
She continued, “When I got pregnant I was like, ‘Perfect! I’ll use it as a diaper bag.’”
