Whitney Houston FBI files released online, include fan lettersBy Angel Cuala on Mar 5, 2013 in Entertainment, Hollywood, United States •
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released on Monday, March 4, 2013 its files on behalf of Whitney Houston, following an investigation into an alleged extortion attempt back in 1992. But besides finding no concrete evidence on the allegation, the 128-page Whitney Houston FBI records also revealed tons of fan letters.
As noted in the documents posted at Vault.FBI.gov, the FBI investigation occurred during the height of the Whitney Houston’s career. The alleged $250,000 extortion attempt was made to the “I Will Always Love You” singer, months after she married Bobby Brown. Otherwise, her personal information will be released publicly.
Also included in the FBI records, which were released through a Freedom of Information Act request, are handwritten letters from a male fan from Vermont, suggesting in one 1988 letter that he “might hurt someone with some crazy idea and not realize how stupid an idea it was until after it was done.”
“Miss Whitney, you are just so pretty and so beautiful. I just cannot stop thinking about you. Many times when I think about you I will start to shake. Miss Whitney, what am I doing wrong. I am in love with you. I really and truly am in love with you. Whitney, please, please give me a chance.” The fan wrote, whose identity not revealed.
“Over the past 17 months, I have sent … 66 letters to Miss Whitney. … I have been to 9 of Miss Whitney’s concerts and I have tried to give her flowers twice at the concerts. … When I first fell in love with Miss Whitney Houston I tried to ignore what I felt towards her.” The avid fan wrote in another letter.
“Miss Whitney, why can’t you respond to my 70 plus letters? … You probably think I’m crazy. Well, (maybe) I am. I just can’t give up. I have to keep trying. I really am in love with you.” The same fan wrote in another letter. Nevertheless, no charges were filed until the death of the multi-Grammy winning singer in February 2012.
