We’ve been hearing about the rumored affair between Whitney Houston and her personal assistant/longtime friend Robyn Crawford for decades now — but according to a new book “Whitney & Bobbi Kristina: The Deadly Price of Fame”, keeping Whitney’s alleged affair secret almost cost her $250,000 back in the day.

On the eve of the premiere of the Whitney Houston movie “The Bodyguard” movie in 1992, a Chicago lawyer tried to extort $250,000 from her, according to a heavily redacted FBI file.
The lawyer told an FBI agent that the info included “knowledge of intimate details regarding Whitney Houston’s romantic relationships and will go public with the information.”
According to the report, Houston’s father, John Houston, “settled the matter by sending a confidentiality agreement almost immediately,” although it was “unclear how much money was paid to silence the person and whether he met the initial demand for $250,000.”
That same year, Whitney married singer Bobby Brown. On the day of the wedding, Halperin notes, the bride gave Crawford a black Porsche “as a token of their friendship.”
Halperin quotes Kevin Ammons, a former Whitney bodyguard, saying that John Houston was extremely unhappy with Crawford and worried that she would go public with the relationship.
According to Ammons, the elder Houston told him, “We’ve got to do something about that motherf–king b—h. She’s ruining my family and driving everybody nuts. She’s lost her grip on reality. I’ll pay you $6,000 if you put the fear of God in her.”
Harper goes into greater detail on Whitney & Robyn’s rumored tryst in his book. He also offers his theory on what happened to Bobbi Kristina and why she’s still in a coma.
The questions is — do you believe him?
