Bobby Brown says that he fears for his life after being told by a writer that he was a target of Osama Bin Laden.
Sudanese writer Kola Boof had previously written that Brown was a target for the al-Qaeda leader, because of Bin Ladenâ€™s apparent infatuation with his estranged wife Whitney Houston.
In an interview with an Australian radio show, Brown says that the claims have struck fear in his heart. He said: â€œCome on, if anyone is threatened by al-Qaeda theyâ€™d take it seriously.
â€œI figure if Bin Laden wants me, and everybody is looking for him, it wonâ€™t happen. But if he wants to try and find me for something so stupid, then he can if he wants. I have to leave it in the hands of a higher power.â€
Brown has admitted to stepping up security measures since the claims were made.
