Osama bin Laden planned to Kidnap Whitney Houston
In a new documentary by Kevin Macdonald,it says late popstar Whitney Houston was at the center of a kidnapping scheme dreamed up by none other than Osama bin Laden in the nineties after recording Dolly Parton’s ‘i’ll always love you’ and starred in movie,The Bodyguard alongside Kevin Costner. In a recent interview with Yahoo Entertainment;
As the director explained to us, it was Houston’s recording of the Dolly Parton song “I Will Always Love You” that put her on the al-Qaida leader’s radar. First heard by moviegoers in the 1992 blockbuster The Bodyguard — the romantic drama that paired Houston with Kevin Costner — Houston’s version of “I Will Always Love You” became a smash sensation around the world, from Burbank to Baghdad. “There’s an amusing bit in the film where you learn how Saddam Hussein used the song as the soundtrack to his last supposedly democratic election in Iraq before the invasion,” Macdonald says. Bin Laden loved the song as well, so much so that — according to one of his ex-girlfriends — he openly mused about organizing a squad tasked with the mission of assassinating Houston’s then-husband, R&B singer Bobby Brown, and kidnapping her. “That has some way of showing the impact of the song,” Macdonald says.
