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.
