Whitney Houston may not be with us anymore, but she still needs a bodyguard!
The singer's family has hired security to patrol the Fairview Cemetery in New Jersey to make sure thieves won't ransack the grave site and steal the $480,000 worth of jewelry she was buried wearing.
A source explains:
"There is a very genuine fear that her coffin will be targeted by grave robbers. It would be hard for them to actually dig her casket up, but that won’t stop psychotic fans or people who think it could make them money. The fact she was buried with such valuable jewelry is just an invitation to sickos. It’s ironic that Whitney, who was most famous for The Bodyguard movie when she was alive, has to have bodyguards even in death."
As it turns out, the bodyguards are only a short-term solution to the problem, and the family plans on eventually having her casket encased in cement to prevent access to robbers for good.
Wow. That's a little extreme, no?
What do U think about all this???
