MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Eddie Murphy for comments.
Crawford and Houston met as teenagers and she would work closely with the singer until about 2000.
The couple had an affair that is thought to have lasted a year – and Robyn confirmed the nature of their relationship in a recent interview with Dateline NBC.
She said: “It was during that first summer that we met, the first time our lips touched. And nothing was planned, it just happened.
& # 39; And it felt great. And then, not long after, we spent the night together. And that night was the night we touched. And that just brought us closer. & # 39;
The two went their own way, with reports that growing hostility between Crawford and Bobby Brown fueled the gap between the women.
In the documentary Whitney: Can I Be Me, her former bodyguard David Roberts said that Crawford and Bobby Brown would have a physical fight over their shared love for the singer.
Whitney and Bobby divorced in 2007 and Houston died unexpectedly in 2012 at the age of 48.
Crawford will participate in NBC News TODAY for its first live interview on Monday, November 11.
