Among the many admirers of pop legend and actor Whitney Houston, there was a fan who thought that she was “truly Islamic” but had been brainwashed by the American culture. He was none other than former al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.
According to Daily Mail, Sudanese author Kola Boof – admittedly a “sex slave” of bin Laden – revealed in her autobiography that the al Qaeda chief once pronounced his love for Houston and said that he thought that the singer was “the most beautiful girl he had ever seen.”
Boof said that bin Laden wanted to marry Houston and had also once plotted to murder her husband Bobby Brown.
According to Boof’s account, the “strongly racist” bin Laden was willing to “break his colour rule” and make Houston one of his wives and wanted to gift Houston a mansion that he owned in a suburb of the capital city of Sudan, Khartoum.
The author quoted bin Laden as saying, “How beautiful she is, what a nice smile she has, how truly Islamic she is but is just brainwashed by American culture and her husband—Bobby Brown.”
Boof also revealed that she had come across Houston’s pictures in bin Laden’s briefcase and said that there came a point when she was “sick of hearing Houston’s name.”
