Clive Davis and the upcoming Whitney Houston biopic “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” confirm longstanding rumors about the late icon’s relationship with assistant Robyn Crawford.
“The movie does set the record straight. They did have a teenage, one-year affair,” Davis said in a new interview with “Extra” that aired Thursday.
Davis is a producer on the biopic starring British actress Naomi Ackie as Houston, and Stanley Tucci as the legendary music exec.
The film, which premieres Friday, chronicles Houston’s chart-topping success, and the highs and lows of her personal life, including motherhood, her drug addiction and tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown.
Davis told “Extra” the film highlighted her relationship with Crawford, in part, because “there’d been so many articles that have attempted to trace her addiction to being a frustrated lesbian — that she never dated a man before she met Bobby, all of which was totally inaccurate,” he said.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
