Houston's chilling coffin photo published in tabloid
A chilling photo of Whitney Houston lying in her coffin has been published by a U.S. tabloid.
National Enquirer editors obtained grainy images of the late superstar taken at the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey, where a private wake for close friends and family was held on Friday.
The pictures show Houston wearing a purple dress with colour-co-ordinated eye shadow and lip gloss, and jewellery worth a reported £312,500.
A source tells the publication, "Whitney looked lovely... like a queen."
The platinum coffin also had the singer's nickname, "Nippy", embroidered in the silk lining between two treble clef symbols in recognition of her longrunning music career.
Houston was found dead in the bathtub of her Los Angeles hotel suite on 11 February. She was remembered by celebrity pals including Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, media mogul Oprah Winfrey, filmmaker Tyler Perry and her The Bodyguard co-star Kevin Costner during an emotional four-hour memorial service on Saturday and was laid to rest beside her father's grave at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield on Sunday.
what do you think?
shows how sick people are to sell this sort of thing and that person is either from the funeral home or worse still a friend or family member. People will sink to any length these days to make a fast buck and the press are just as low. Our press would probably do exactly the same if someone offered them the picture so no good them judging we all know how low our press can sink
