Whitney Houston died in 2012 but her legacy is kept alive with biopics and documentaries. Clive Davis, the mastermind behind her career, has co-produced the first major film about her life, I Wanna Dance With Somebody, which is in theaters now.

In the movie, Davis didn’t shy away from chronicling her romantic relationship with assistant, Robyn Crawford. Davis told Extra that he wanted the world to know the truth about Houston and Crawford.

“The movie does set the record straight,” Davis said. “They did have a teenage, one-year affair.”

Davis added that it’s not true that Houston faced substance abuse battles because of being closeted.

“There have been so many articles that have…attempted to trace her addiction to being a frustrated lesbian or never dated a man before Bobby, all of which was totally inaccurate. I know of several men that she dated before Bobby. I mean, she did see Jermaine Jackson for two years.”

The J Records founder said he believes that the “I Look To You” singer would have been happy with the film.

“She and I were pretty in sync on almost every issue. I’m proud, and I believe Whitney would be proud, too.”
