According to a report from BET.com, an episode of Red Table Talk featuring Robyn Crawford, the former lover of Whitney Houston, premiered on the 19th of November, Tuesday, and during her chat with the host of the series, Robyn made startling revelations regarding Whitney’s marriage to Bobby Brown.
As fans of Whitney know, her romance with Bobby Brown was supposedly out of the ordinary. In the midst of promoting her new memoir, A Song For You, Crawford claimed that she and Brown never got along that well, especially after the couple got married.
While they never got into a physical confrontation, Robyn explained, they did get in each other’s faces on a number of occasions. Crawford suspected there may have been some abuse between Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston because things between them were quite toxic.
For instance, Crawford claims after Whitney and Bobby went on their honeymoon, she came back home with a big gash on her face, and she told Crawford she accidentally cut her face. Crawford stated she never bought that excuse.
