LONDON: Osama bin Laden lusted after Whitney Houston, dreamt of marrying her and at one point even plotted to murder her husband Bobby Brown, letters found in his Abbottabad residence have shown. The incredible account of the terrorist’s infatuation with the late singer comes from Sudanese author Kola Boof, who it is widely accepted, lived with him as his mistress. In 1996, and when holed-up in his Moroccan compound, the author claimed Osama had different things on his mind, namely sex, anal sex, Taliban sex, smoking cannabis and dancing to western pop groups like the B52s and Van Halen. Boof, who claims she was kept as a “sex slave” by the world’s most dangerous terrorist, said he thought the singer was “the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen” and that he was desperate to marry her. In an autobiography released in 2006, Boof claims bin Laden plotted to have Brown murdered before wooing Houston by giving her a mansion he owned in the suburbs of Khartoum, some 500 camels and a dairy farm. According to the her account, the strongly racist bin Laden puffed on cannabis before announcing he would be willing to “break his colour rule” and make Houston one of his wives. Inside his warped mind he believed Houston was truly Islamic but had been brainwashed by American culture. Boof, who is black, claimed bin Laden scolded her for braiding her hair and ordered her to model herself on Houston instead. “Osama kept coming back to Whitney Houston. He said that he had a paramount desire for Whitney Houston, and although he claimed music was evil, he spoke of someday spending vast amounts of money to go to America and try to arrange a meeting with the superstar. In his briefcase I would come across photographs of the star, as well as copies of Playboy, but nobody in the West believes me when I tell them this,” she wrote. Her story first surfaced in 2002 when the Guardian newspaper published an article claiming she had had a forced sexual relationship with bin Laden and she was billed as the ‘Former Mistress of Osama Bin Laden’. While some claimed she had made up the story and that it was impossible because of her afro-American heritage, Boof has stood by her account and points out that yet two of bin Laden’s twenty-five children are black and his Syrian grandmother also could be considered a Black woman.
Experts have claimed that Whitney too may have secretly loved Osama, as she may have committed suicide after Osama was killed last year. E!
