Whitney and Bobby

Back in the day, Bobby Brown had an addiction that had him in a bad way with some worse individuals. They allegedly snatched that nucca up and held him for ransom, which Whitney (for some reason) paid:

WHITNEY HOUSTON allegedly paid a $400,000 (£270,920) ransom to kidnappers who were threatening to kill her ex-husband BOBBY BROWN, according to a sensational new book.

Houston and Brown divorced in 2007 after nearly 15 years of marriage and their union was plagued with rumours of drug problems. In his autobiography, Preacher of the Streets, former gang member David Collins claims Brown was snatched over a $25,000 (£17,000) debt to a drug dealer, and held bound and gagged at gunpoint by members of a New York street gang known as the Preacher Crew.

Collins alleges the fearsome group decided to extort more money than was owed, and Brown was allowed to call Houston who delivered $400,000 (£270,920) in exchange for the safe return of her husband.

Collins writes, “They came to an agreement. She was personally going to bring $400,000 to get her man back. The next day, she did just that. She was wearing a wig.”

The alleged event took place in April 1993 – at the peak of Houston’s fame.

The kidnapping was never reported to the police, and representatives for both Houston and Brown have refused to discuss the claims.

For some reason, the phrase “crack is wack” doesn’t seem to encompass all that needs to be said. SMH

    As much as I hate Bobby Brown, I’m glad Whitney came through for him. No one deserves to die like that.

    That said…I can’t believe Bobby Brown had the audacity to say Whitney married him just to clean up her image…when stuff like this was happening to him. Suuuuuuuure, Bobby.

    I’m glad Whitney’s washed that sh*tstain off. I hope her own drug abuse hasn’t damaged her voice too much and she can make a come back some day.
