In her prime, Whitney Houston was one of the biggest stars on the planet, let alone the entertainment industry. As we all know, with great fame, comes crazy fans and Houston was not short of deluded devotees, desperate to make contact with her. On Monday, the FBI released a 128 dossier, detailing their own investigations into some of these unhinged interactions, between the years 1988 and 1992.

Ace Showbiz reports that one of these fans, an unemployed Army vet wrote nearly 80 letters to Whitney, professing his love to her. He also wrote 16 letters to the singer’s family. When he received no response, he threatened her with going public with his love for her, either in the National Enquirer or on the Phil Donahue Show.’ The FBI met with him in June 1988 and he agreed not to take any action, for fear of harming her reputation.
