Osama's so emotional Whitney outburst

Osama Bin Laden was so obsessed with Whitney Houston that he fantasised about killing her husband Bobby Brown and marrying the American singer, according to a new book written by one of his former mistresses Kola Boof.

The Sudanese writer, who claimed the infamous Al Qaeda chief kept her as a sex slave in 1996, said Bin Laden loved watching TV shows Miami Vice and MacGyver though was most obsessed with wooing Whitney.

"He told me that Whitney Houston was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen," Ms Boof wrote in her book Diary of a Lost Girl.

“Bin Laden would speak constantly about "how beautiful she [Houston] is, what a nice smile she has, how truly Islamic she is but is just brainwashed by American culture and by her husband - Bobby Brown . . .  It would soon come to the point where I was sick of hearing Whitney Houston's name,” she added (Harpers).

Ms Boof’s surprising revelations followed repeated claims that the nowadays notoriously puritanical terror chief spent his youth chasing girls in the fleshpots of Beirut after first becoming a cinema addict when studying English at a language school in England as a teen.

“(He was) "a heavy drinker who often ended up embroiled in shouting matches and fistfights with other young men over an attractive night-club dancer or barmaid,” an associate recalled in 2000, matching a more recent report in Tribune India.

“Osama was then 16, a handsome lad six-foot-four-inch tall and eager to savour the good things of life,” the Tribune reported of his clubbing days in Beirut.

 “He started drinking — from beer to whiskey, brandy and champagne — and smoked Havana cigars and took L.S.D. He acquired a Christian girlfriend, Rita. However, that did not prevent him from visiting casinos and sleazy nightclubs, Crazy Horse, Moulin Rouge, Eves, The Casabah, which besides drinking and dancing, provided prostitutes. Osama liked them as well with distinct preferences for European blondes,” the paper claimed.

Ironically, blonde Italian porn star Cicciolina, 55, offered herself sexually to the terrorist six months ago in a bold bid to end the war on terror.

"It is time someone did something about Bin Laden, and I am ready to do it,” she told an audience at a sex show in Romania, "I am ready to make a deal, he can have me in exchange for an end to his tyranny. My breasts have only ever helped people while Bin Laden has killed thousands of innocent victims,” she said (Ananova)
