Triflin’ Tales of Drugs & Kidnap With Whitney and Bobby

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

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.

    [A revamp of Jan. 28, 2008]

    If I were to ask you what was number one in your life right now, what would your answer be? Let me re-phrase my question: what do you invest the majority of your time in?

    For many of us, our answer might be: in a relationship that means a lot to us, hanging with our friends or family members, our jobs, our careers, but how many of us would say having a meaningful relationship with God and doing what He requires of us? Very few. Very, very few.

    When was the last time you felt extremely exhausted? Tired? Just worn out? This morning? Last night? A week ago? Plenty of us are existing in this life but it’s been so long since we’ve felt alive. It’s been so long since we prayed or even talked to God. It’s been so, so long since we’ve just had that one on one relationship with Him. It’s been so long since we really just spent quality time with Him and have gotten to really know Him.

    Now anybody that really understands the value of a relationship knows that if you don’t spend enough time with your significant other long enough, the value or the core of the relationship will die. This is what’s happening to us: the saints.

    Many of us are self-destructing. We are hurting ourselves by placing all of our importance, all of our emphasis, all of our time into something that will eventually fade away. Don’t get me wrong, I do believe as I always mention, that God gave us the ability to be able to enjoy people and for them to be able to enjoy us but placing all of our trust in PEOPLE is dangerous. It leads to an emptiness that cannot be filled because regardless of how much people love you, they are going to let you down. People are going to be people!!!! And at the end of the day, your feelings are hurt, you’re broken,, you’re mind is confused because you’ve placed your trust in an unrelaible source.

    LET’S get back to the basics people in starting this new year off!!! If you want to have a meaningful life, if you want that peace back that you once had, you’ve got to get your relationship back with God. Remember when you used to wake up praying to Him? Do you remember when He was number one in your life? Do you remember when nothing or no one else even came close to His place? You’ve been hurting, you’ve been empty, you’ve been going around and around in cirlces trying to find peace of mind and you’re self-destructing. You’re killing yourself!!!!

    How do you recover? Go back to what once worked!!! Have you forgotten Him?
    Talk to Him tonight and tell Him you want it back…He’s waiting for you.

    Think about it!

    this is a BS story…bobby concocted this story with the gang members and took a cut for himself…whitney was too stupid and fell for it. I would have called the police with the extortion scheme & bobby would have just figured out how to get away or just been killed… I know whitney now regrets giving up the 400,000 G’s for that fool…
