Whitney Houston was admired and wanted by one of history’s most depraved and despicable men, terror chief Osama bin Laden, Sudanese author Kola Boof has claimed.
Osama bin Laden is said to have lusted after Whitney Houston, dreamed of marrying her and at one point even plotted to murder her husband Bobby Brown.
The incredible account of Osama bin Laden’s infatuation with Whitney Houston comes from Sudanese author Kola Boof, who it is widely accepted lived with him as his mistress.
It was 1996, and just a few years later Osama bin Laden would mastermind the most appalling terrorist attack ever to happen on American soil.
But holed-up in his Moroccan compound Osama bin Laden had different things on his mind, namely sex, smoking cannabis and dancing to western pop groups like the B52s and Van Halen.
Kola Boof, who claims she was kept as a “sex slave” by Osama bin Laden, said he thought Whitney Houston was “the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen” and that he was desperate to marry her.
In an autobiography released in 2006, Diary of a Lost Girl: The Autobiography of Kola Boof, the former mistress claims Osama bin Laden plotted to have Bobby Brown murdered before wooing Whitney Houston by giving her a mansion he owned in the suburbs of Khartoum.
And according to the Kola Boof’s account, the strongly racist Osama bin Laden puffed on cannabis before announcing he would be willing to “break his color rule” and make Whitney Houston one of his wives.
Inside his warped mind Osama bin Laden believed Whitney Houston was truly Islamic but had been brainwashed by American culture.
Kola Boof, 37, who is black, claimed Osama bin Laden scolded her for braiding her hair and ordered her to model herself on Whitney Houston instead.
Kola Boof recalls in her book: “He smoked a little marijuana from a gold hookah, sipping his tea and instructing me that I was always to keep hot tea for his <<kif-canbo>>, to ease the burn in his chest.
“Osama said only monkeys braid their hair. He told me that the singer Whitney Houston was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen and that she never wore her hair braided.
“<<I want you to fix your hair like hers from now on>>, he said. <<I can’t put my fingers through it when it’s braided.>>
“Osama kept coming back to Whitney Houston. He asked if I knew her personally when I lived in America. I told him I didn’t.
“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.
“It didn’t seem impossible to me. He said he wanted to give Whitney Houston a mansion that he owned in a suburb of Khartoum. He explained to me that to possess Whitney he would be willing to break his color rule and make her one of his wives.
“I tried to hide my outrage at his racist remarks, but it would come to pass that for the entire time that I would be trapped in his palm, Whitney Houston’s was the one name that would be mentioned constantly.
“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, whom Osama talked about having killed, as if it were normal to have women’s husbands killed.
“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. It’s like they have this totally bogus image of Osama bin Laden.
“Anyway, it would soon come to the point where I was sick of hearing Whitney Houston’s name.”
Kola Boof’s story first surfaced in 2002 when the Guardian newspaper published an article claiming she had had a forced sexual relationship with Osama bin Laden.
Later in a two-part interview with MSNBC Kola Boof was billed as the “Former Mistress of Osama Bin Laden”.
Some claimed Kola Boof had made up the story, and that it was impossible because of her afro-American heritage.
But Kola Boof has stood by her account and points out that yet two of Osama bin Laden’s twenty-five children are black and his Syrian grandmother also could be considered a Black woman.
Earlier in her account Kola Boof recalled how Osama bin Laden who she called “Somi” would abuse her.
She wrote: “We would be lying there in bed and he’d say, <<African women are only good for a man’s lower pleasures. What need do you have for a womb?>>
“I would feel insulted – not just to the heart, but to the soul.
“He would humiliate me by making me dance naked. It was such a strange thing, because for the most part he believed music was evil. If a guest at the estate played music, he would cover his ears until the <<poison>> was silenced.
“But other times he would become this devout party boy who wanted to hear Van Halen or some B-52’s. To this day I hear the song <<Rock Lobster>> in my sleep.
“I would be jerking around like a white girl – <<Dance like a Caucasoid girl!>> he would say – and his eyes would track me from one side of the terrace to the other. <<Your ass is too big, show me the front>>, he said.
“Osama, you understand, did not know the difference between being vicious and being tender.”
Recalling the time she first met Osama bin Laden at a Moroccan restaurant, Kola Boof said: “I ran out the door, gripped by terror, and drove home. Relieved that his henchmen hadn’t followed me, I ran a bath, lounged in the cold bathwater, then changed into a flowing silk robe.
“There was a bang on the door, and I could hear shouting: <<Hey, black girl!>> When I opened the door, there was Osama bin Laden and his seven-man posse. A cold bolt of lightning went through me.
“But Osama was trying to be charming, despite the fear in my eyes. <<Why did you run? I just think you’re lovely and I find you intriguing. I wanted to be your friend.>>”
