Whitney Houstons Family Devastated By Publication Of Her Casket Photo

This is exactly what we were worried about, and why it should have NEVER happened in the first place.

Whitney Houston's family is reportedly devastated after discovering that a photo of the late icon's body in her casket was published on the cover of The National Enquirer, and are furious that the security surrounding her was breached!

According to sources close to Cissy Houston, who has taken the publication the hardest, the family has had "their hearts broken all over again" by the frankly vulgar and thoughtless exploitation of their loved one.

However, they intend to carry through and will not investigate the matter further.

We think everyone responsible for taking that photo, selling it and deciding to run it should be very thankful for that, indeed.

And frankly, ashamed of themselves.

    Can I get a filter for this website? I'm so fking tired of Whitney and Rihanna… SHUT THE FK UP ABOUT THIS SH!T!



  2. 2

    What ever happened to lady gaga?! You never post about her anymore



  3. 3

    Dang you don't say? I'm sure glad you cleared this up. I was thinking they'd be thrilled..



  4. 4

    Quite laughable really; i.e. the day pig-vomit Mario LabiaVagina is the arbiter of propriety.



  5. 5

    Is this more shameful and disgusting than posting a photo of Anna Nicole Smith's corpse. Remember when you did that Perez?



  6. 6

    I bet it was someone close to them or a family member themself that took the picture and sold it. They have no problem benefiting financially by selling the private funeral footage, so I'm sure one of them had no problem selling a casket photo.



  7. 7

    The family doesn't want to get to the bottom of it? Sounds like they sold it.



  8. 8

    I hate to be cynical, but whomever was on the Whitney money making comeback train is no longer on it. Families sale pictures to the Tabs and in their deal they sign a deniability clause or they go through a handler. So legally they can act profoundly outraged in public. The funeral home and it's employees could be prosecuted and sued a lot to lose, the family and friends, not so much.



  9. 9

    Perez you know this though, if they are not having it investigated they know it was one of them.

    Well now, isn't that the kettle calling the pot black. Who, in this industry, has the right to draw the line at what is morally responsible and what is not. Every picture posted is an invasion of privacy to some degree. Whitney's picture wasn't bad or in poor taste. It just feeds her fans with one last photo, almost proving infact that yes, she is gone (isn't that why there is an open casket in the first place) I have seen far worse, distasteful pictures on every entertainment website, including this one. Judge not or be judged

    damn…i wish they would have shown the morgue shots…and the autopsy shots…and even the bathtub shots…yay…i wanna c her vagina in the bathtub…it wud take years to clean that twat from her marriage.

    Re: pie107 – She probably quit paying him to promote her. Doesn't need him anymore. Way bigger and better than that. She moved on to decent celebrity magazines, not TABLOID CRAP.



  13. 13

    There's only so much the funeral home's forensic estheticians can do to a water-logged crack-ho with toasted lip, singed eyebrows & hair, and emaciated skin & bone features….



  14. 14

    Re: pie107 – el kreepo is not getting paid to talk about gaga anymore…that's why he stopped.



  15. 15

    will u people be surprise when they find out the family dismembered her body and sold it on auction??? btw, her brain was never buried with the body, it's still in the labs for toxicology tests…



  16. 16

    FAMILY MEMBER SOLD IT. I'M BETTING RAY WATSON, WHITNEY'S BROTHER-IN-LAW PERSONAL BODYGUARD. HE DOESNT HAVE ANYTHING TO GAIN FROM HER DEATH SO HE NEEDS THE CASH. HIM OR RAFFLES VAN EXEL, THE HANGERS-ON. CMON THE LIST AINT THAT LONG… PRETTY EASY TO FIND OUT WHO TOOK IT.

    Re: pie107 – Thank God

    The majority of these comments are beyond foul. You people are disgusting. Whatever thrill you get from spewing such hatred is unfathomable.



  19. 19

    ..publishing it is wrong, but including a link to it in your article… isn't? I haven't clicked the link so I can't be sure but surely this is a pot/kettle situation?



  20. 20

    Re: Alexima – that would be cool, i'll bid on the right tit



  21. 21

    They are only upset because they couldn't be the one to sell it first…..all the relatives are gathered around to get their cut of her money……..



  22. 22

    STOP BLOCKING COMMENTS PEREZ…..

    FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR EVERYONE.

    Kate Gosselin should not be dating, but raising all her children…..getting laid should be the least of her priorities….This woman is a bad mother.



  23. 23

    ok lets get real here…who hang with trash this is what happens…hell Whitney didn't get it when she was alive stop with the rif wraf…Im sure it was some dumass from Newark Nj who took it or some of Bobbi's realitives..they've done it before
    shame…RIP Whitney



  24. 24

    boo fucking hoo, fry me a liver. someone saw an opportunity, took a pic, made some money. get over it. it was probably the family anyway, if not they're just pissed that someone beat them to the punch. COPY the loser baby rapist family much?? the jackson school of making money off a dead drug addict. summa cum loser



  25. 25

    Re: xman66 – proper english and spelling would really help getting your message across.



  26. 26

    Who cares. They should have seen it coming a million miles away. Fools. Should have made everyone turn in their cell phones at the door.

    Re: raypearson – I'll send you a bottle of my special BBQ Sauce … you sick perverted pathetic cannibalistic alcoholic impotent little man….



  28. 28

    saw the pic, she look stunning even as she lie dead.

    perezita, you have posted worse pics from dead celebrities, I suggest you shut the F up.

    Another coon in a casket, whats the big deal. And did they not report a few days before she died that she was bankrupt/penniless?? So I wonder who's 1/2 million of jeweles she was buried in. I bet all the spooks at the service wore sunglasses just like at pedifile man's family did.

    Re: triple M – You are a coward. I predicted the second I asked you to clarify how you came up with your absurd statistics on homosexuality you would disappear, and you did.

    I'll ask you again: You say that women choose to be gay because of being molested by a man when they were younger, leading them to hate men in the future. What about gay men? They were molested by a man so they… choose to be with men from then on?

    Again, you say that 90% of homosexuals choose their sexuality. Where are you coming up with this? If you are implying that people choose their sexuality, you are implying that you yourself 'could' experience homosexual feelings. Do you have something to admit to yourself? I don't know about you, but I have absolutely zero control over which gender I am attracted to.

    Have some self respect and don't go running with your tail between your legs in defeat the second someone calls you out. Don't get me wrong, if I shared your completely batshit opinions I wouldn't want to defend them either, but fortunately I don't. Let's see if you get scared and disappear from this thread, too. Even I don't think you're that stupid.



  31. 31

    Re: triple M – Doesn't in concern you that instead of defending your statement you'd rather run away from it? Doesn't that tell you something about the validity of it?

    Okra@27 - Ever listen to Joe Cocker? Cry Me A River = Fry Me A Liver. Bad joke, considering, but BBQ sauce probably not necessary. Unless you were joking too, meaculpa.

    I saw this photo and I thought Mz. Houston looked better then she had in years. They did her hair up, beautiful purple dress, jewelry. Personally, I don't see what all the fuss is about. She looked beautiful!



  34. 34

    devastated cuz they didn't get a chance to sell it



  35. 35

    Her family probably sold the pic in the first place. But with that said, can we PLEASE move on from the Whitney/kartrashian/Rihanna "news". No one wants to talk about these people any more.



  36. 36

    I also think it was a family member who sold it. If the family can sell a video of the funeral, then anything is possible.
    I guess the next photo will be Whitney in the bathrub.



  37. 37

    Back in the 1800's it was common to pose with dead babies, deceased grannies or even victims of freak accidents. Maybe Auntie Dionne will roll a few joints and hold a seance to find out the truth.
