In his new tell-all book, Bobby Brown says Whitney Houston wanted to marry him so that she could squash rampant rumors that she was a lesbian.
“(The marriage) was doomed from the very beginning,” Brown writes in “Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But…” “I think we got married for all the wrong reasons. Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married… I believe her agenda was to clean up her image, while mine was to be loved and have children.
“The media was accusing her of having a bisexual relationship with her assistant, Robin Crawford. Since she was the American Sweetheart and all, that didn’t go too well with her image… In Whitney’s situation, the only solution was to get married and have kids. That would kill all speculation, whether it was true or not.”
Brown divorced Houston in 2007 after 14 years of marriage
