According to the late singer’s best friend/lover Robyn Crawford, Eddie Murphy tried to stop Whitney Houston from marrying Bobby Brown.


Crawford revealed in her memoir, A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston, that the Houston was in love with the comedian in the late 80s. 


Crawford wrote, “[Whitney] was more interested in Eddie Murphy, but he was elusive.” She also speaks about a time Murphy was supposed to visit Huston at her New Jersey home for dinner, “I caught a glimpse of Whitney. She was wearing a black dress and low-heeled slingbacks. For a moment, I thought ‘Boy, I wish she was doing that for me.’” According to Crawford, Murphy never showed up.


Crawford says Murphy called her on her wedding day, July 18, 1992, in what was said to be his “last effort” to stop Houston from going through with it. “[That day] Eddie Murphy called to say she was making a mistake, but she pressed ahead.”
