Whitney Houston FBI Files Released By Government Agency

Whitney Houston FBI files have been released by the American government service in compliance with the Freedom Of Information Act.

The FBI are known for their surveillance of many top stars, and Houston was evidently no different, with USA Today reporting that a staggering 128 pages worth of dossier had been released regarding the late singer, who passed away in her hotel room on the eve of the 2012 Grammys. The documents surround a suspected extortion case dating back to 1992 that eventually closed without prosecution. The issue surrounded a letter sent to the New Jersey offices of the star, from a woman who claimed that, unless she was paid $100,000, she would reveal details about the singer’s private life. It wasn’t claimed specifically what those details were, but the sender did claim to have intimate details of Houston’s romantic relationships.

According to the documents, the FBI subsequently interviewed Houston, her father John Houston and two lawyers connected to the case. Apparently the woman was a friend of Houston’s, whom the star admitted she discussed personal things with. Additionally, there have been several fan letters released, that show the obsessive nature of some of the performer’s most eager followers. "Miss Whitney, why can't you respond to my 70 plus letters? ... You probably think I'm crazy. Well, (maybe) I am. I just can't give up. I have to keep trying. I really am in love with you” read one. One letter was noted for possible extortion in 1998, whilst the documents also revealed that the FBI flew to meet a Dutch man in 1999 who’d claimed Houston was ripping off his music.
