Later, he was given permission to speak to Whitney only once, during which he begged her to personally deliver the ransom to a derelict Bronx building.

The terrified singer, disguised in a wig and glasses, followed orders, gave a duffle bag holding the money to 6ft 7in gang leader Clarence “Preacher” Heatley 24 hours later, according to Collins.

He asserts that the alleged kidnapping took place in April 1993, when Whitney was at the height of her stardom thanks to the success of her film The Bodyguard and its soundtrack record. Whitney had to deal with her then husband’s kidnappers alone in order to pay the ransom before they let her go free, unlike the movie, in which Kevin Costner was her brave minder.

In his memoirs Preacher of the Streets, former gang member Collins asserts that Brown was kidnapped because of a $25,000 debt to a New Jersey cocaine dealer. The dealer was allegedly paid by Heatley, who is presently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole after admitting his involvement in 13 gang-related deaths.

Heatley, who Collins referred to as a “mountain of evil” weighing 18 and a half stone, then revealed to the gang that he had a plan “to make a whole lot more than $25,000”. His goons allegedly doused Brown with high-grade cocaine in a Manhattan nightclub before luring him to a Bronx flat with the promise of more.

Collins alleges that Brown was brought to a seedy, vacant flat that the Preacher Crew had occupied. One of Heatley’s goons “knocked him out with one punch” there. Bobby was hog-tied, naked, and had a cloth placed in his mouth when he woke up, according to Collins.

When The Preacher arrived, he removed the rag from Bobby’s lips. Preacher said to Bobby, “It’s a shame we have to kill you. While pleading for his life, Bobby said Whitney could settle the bill.

“The Preacher exited the room, and for the next two hours, his men tormented Bobby. He was kicked. He was informed that Whitney will be killed. They each held a gun to his head. When the Preacher returned, Bobby was sobbing.

Collins claims that Heatley used this terror strategy in hopes of scoring a significant financial hit. Brown was permitted to call Whitney and threaten to kill her if she didn’t give the gang money. Collins claims that Heatley then allegedly took the phone away from Brown.

They reached a decision as Whitney begged him to spare her spouse. She intended to personally provide $400 000 to win back her man. The following day, she carried it out. She sported a wig. She made the payment. Bobby may leave now.

After they left, Preacher sat there with the duffle bag of cash and divided it with his men, according to Collins. Preacher pocketed the majority of it ($200k). Collins agrees with Whitney and Brown.

In his book, he describes his own time spent as a member of the Preacher Crew, whose major source of income was drug peddling in Harlem and the Bronx. The Preacher Crew was known for torturing victims who were unable or unable to pay their drug bills.

Collins reports that “Members would slice off body parts of rival dealers or defaulters before killing them.” Police eventually broke up the gang in a series of raids that resulted in the imprisonment of its major members.

Yesterday, the spokespeople for Whitney and Brown both declined to comment on the kidnapping allegations. Yet another description of the couple’s plunge into what Whitney’s mother Cissy, 73, characterised as “a living hell” is sure to horrify family members.

After a turbulent 15-year marriage in which Whitney, 45, entered rehab three times, multiple police calls were made to their house, and their now 15-year-old daughter Bobbi was threatened with removal by child protective services, Brown, 40, and Whitney, 45, divorced in April 2007.

Whitney was a budding Hollywood A-list star and one of the most popular singers in the world at the time of the alleged kidnapping.

She still holds the record for the most consecutive number one singles with seven, and at the time of the alleged kidnapping, her spin-off single from the movie The Bodyguard, I Will Always Love You, which is still the third-highest selling song in music history, had been at the top of the US charts for 14 weeks straight.

Singer and actor Brown’s career flourished, but it also took a sharp turn for the worst. Hers did too over the course of a few years. When marijuana was discovered in Whitney’s tote bag while she was travelling to Hawaii in 2000, her drug issues finally came to light.

In a 2002 television appearance, where she opened out about sniffing cocaine, using marijuana, and popping pills, she acknowledged the full scope of her usage.

After a legal battle, Whitney and Brown finally came to an agreement regarding Bobbi’s custody. Brown recently failed in his attempt to start a television reality programme in the US.
