Los Angeles, California (March 4, 2013) BACM Research – PaperlessArchives.com has announced the publishing of Whitney Houston FBI files released by Federal Bureau of Investigations through the Freedom of Information Act. The files can be found at
In the 1992 film "The Bodyguard" starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, Houston plays a famous singer who is plagued by death threats from an unknown stalker. Houston was able to draw from her own life not just as an international superstar, but as the FBI files show, as a victim of threats against her well being.
The files mostly date between 1988 and 1992, cover the investigations into two threatening people and one extortion attempt against Houston.
In one case a man in Vermont became annoyed that his "love" for Whitney Houston was unrequited. The files contain copies of several of the letters and a summary of an interview conducted by FBI agents of the subject at his home. The man wrote numerous letters to Whitney Houston and members of her family. The text of these letters expressed the obsessed man’s love for Miss Houston.
One of these letters written to John Houston, Whitney Houston’s father, stated "I might hurt someone with some crazy idea and not realize how stupid an idea it was until after it was done" When interviewed by the FBI on June 8, 1988, the subject said that he had no intention of threatening or harming Whitney Houston. He said that the crazy idea was his considering making his love for Houston public through the "National Enquirer" or on "The Phil Donahue Show". He said he believed this "crazy idea" would have hurt Houston’s reputation, so he decided not to follow through on it.
In a second investigation an attorney for Whitney Houston contacted federal authorities after a former associate of Houston attempted to extort $250,000 to not reveal personal information concerning Houston. The FBI concluded that the actions by the person, who Houston described as a friend, in an FBI interview did not constitute a Federal crime.
The third investigation involved threatening correspondences from a man residing in Holland, who claimed that Houston recorded many of his songs that he sent to Houston on audio cassette. The man also claimed to be the President of Europe, responsible for the end of apartheid in South Africa, and to be the owner of Brazil, which he bought for $66 billion. An FBI legal attaché in Holland interviewed the subject and warned him that his actions constituted a violation of U.S. federal law and that if he continued he would be prosecuted. The Dutch man pledged there would be no further attempts on his part to communicate in any way with Houston.
