Latest FBI findings claim Whitney Houston was blackmailed over a secret lesbian love affair
According to latest files released by the FBI under the Freedom Of Information Act, the Late Whitney Houston was the victim of a successful extortion plot that threatened to reveal intimate secrets about the singer and a new report alleges they were about a secret lesbian love affair.
Numerous harassing and obsessive letters including a series of correspondences between Houston's handlers and a party that threatened Houston were discovered in the 128 page FBI file.
A passage from an enclosed memorandum reads, "[Redacted] said [Redacted] told him that [Redacted] has knowledge of intimate details regarding Whitney Houston’s romantic relationships, and will go public with the information unless [Redacted] is paid $250,000. [Redacted] told [Redacted] client will sign a confidentiality agreement if [Redacted] is paid the $250,000."
An executed confidentiality agreement, suggesting that the extortion plot was successful was also included in the file.
A new book by Ian Halperin titled, 'Whitney & Bobbi Kristina: The Deadly Price of Fame,' claims The New York Post reported that the extortion plot was based on Houston’s rumored affair with her friend and assistant, Robyn Crawford. The book further alleges that Whitney’s father John feared that Crawford would go public with the relationship, and that he voiced these concerns to Kevin Ammons, Whitney’s former bodyguard.
This occurred during the same year that Whitney married Bobby Brown, and on their wedding day, Houston gave Crawford a black Porsche as a “token of their friendship.”
The extensive FBI file sheds light on the pressures that Houston faced during her life in the spotlight and eventual death.
