Whitney Houston Family: Devastated Over National Enquirer Photo

by at . Comments

The family of Whitney Houston is reacting to The National Enquirer posting a photo of that singer's corpse as you might expect: with outrage and heartbreak.

TMZ cites sources who say Whitney's mother, Cissy, is especially distraught over the tabloid actually taking this measure, but there are no plans to open any kind of investigation into the source of this photo, which the newspaper has the nerve to refer to as "beautiful."

Meanwhile, Carolyn Whigham, owner of the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, tells The Daily News that neither she nor her staff had anything to do with the image or its leak.

"We did not take that photo. We did not sell the photo. We would never do something like that," she said to the newspaper. "Whitney was a friend. I’m the one who flew to Los Angeles and got Whitney from the coroner’s office. I did everything to protect her.”

B.S. Is this the same family that put the funeral on national TV? But upset by photo? They are only upset they didn't get the $$$$. All they ever did was money grub Whitney. They are the real cause of her demise. Typical n******s

The `family` may be upset, however wasn`t her body guarded closer then gold at FT Knox (from various reports)? I would bet someone in the `family` took it. There were only a select few who saw her in the coffin, so lets do the math,,,,
