Whitney Houston — Bin Laden’s ‘Greatest Love of All?’

According to a new novel [a memoir entitled Diary Of A Lost Girl] by Sudanese author Kola Boof, Osama bin Laden is obsessed with singer Whitney Houston.

Boof claims that when she was held as a sex slave for the terrorist for four months in a Moroccan hotel room, he couldn’t stop talking about the legendary singer.

“He told me Whitney Houston was the most beautiful woman he’d seen,” she writes in “Diary of a Lost Girl,” excerpted in next month’s Harpers’ Bazaar. Boof adds that he constantly spoke of “how beautiful she was, what a nice smile she has, and how truly Islamic she is but is just brainwashed by American culture and by her husband.”

Allegedly, Bin Laden sought to have Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown killed.

And although the totalitarian government of Afghanistan considers listening to music sinful, she writes Bin Laden “spoke of someday spending vast amounts of money to go to America and try to arrange a meeting with the superstar.”

If that’s not bizarre enough, other American pop culture she cites as him enjoying were watching episodes of “The Wonder Years,” “Miami Vice” and “MacGyver” and reading Star Magazine and Playboy.
