Clive Davis may be in a romantic relationship with a person of the same sex, but the music mogul can’t say the same was ever true about his late mentee, Whitney Houston.
“I really saw her in brief relationships with men,” Clive told TheGrio.com.
In his new book, The Soundtrack of My Life, Clive admits that he’s bisexual, and that resurrected questions about Whitney’s relationship with longtime friend, Robyn Crawford. However, Clive said he only witnessed Whitney dating men, even though none of her early relationships with them seemed serious.
“I do write about that she did have an interim relationship with Jermaine Jackson when he was separated. I know other boyfriends. I know that she went out with Eddie Murphy for a while before she married Bobby Brown,” he said.
As for Robyn, Clive said he only knew her as the diva’s friend.
“I only knew Robyn as her assistant,” said Clive, acknowledging that he might not have known everything about Whitney.
“I just knew the heterosexual side of Whitney,” he said.
