It's often said that there's no such thing as bad publicity, but good luck selling that idea to the celebrities on this list. Here are three famous people who were surprised to find their names at the center of tragic stories.
3Osama Bin Laden Was Obsessed With Whitney Houston
Some stars never catch a break from the tabloids. For example, just two short days after her untimely passing, a major news outlet reminded us that Osama Bin Laden, one of the most despised terrorist figures in the entire world, was obsessed with Whitney Houston. Like in a sex way.
According to reports, Bin Laden openly stated his desires to "break his color rule" and make her one of his wives, an offer that is only capable of being sexy if it's coming from Isaac Hayes or Barry White.
The worst part about this story, though, is that it actually broke way back in 2006, so it was old news by the time February 2012 rolled around -- but the media ran wild with it all over again.
