I’m SO APPALLED!!!! A photograph apparently showing Whitney Houston in an open coffin has been published on the cover of the National Enquirer.
Armed security guards have been placed at Whitney Houston’s grave to prevent grave robbers from plundering £300,000 worth of jewels and clothing the singer was buried in. The iconic singer who died on February 11 aged 48, is understood to have been buried in a gold lined casket worth upwards of £10,000, and wearing a diamond brooch and earrings. And now with the photos all over the internet, the superstar will continue to need a “bodyguard” even in death. The chilling picture shows the singer lying dead in her golden casket, clad in a regal purple dress and wearing what looks like a diamond brooch and earrings.
The weekly American magazine has run the snap alongside a bold headline proclaiming: ‘Whitney: The last photo!’
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!!!!!! And you wonder why so many of our entertainers can’t cope without drugs and alcohol!!!!???? They exchange their privacy and their peace of mind for fame and fortune. Now who took that picture??? Only 1500 of her closest family and friends were invited. Who got the money for that photo which was reportedly worth 1 MILLION DOLLARS!!!!! It is understood the photograph was taken inside the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey, where her family attended a private wake last Friday on the eve of her funeral. The magazine claims the photo was taken at the private viewing – although does not reveal who took the picture. Carolyn Whigham, the owner of the Whigham Funeral Home, told MailOnline when asked for a comment: ‘I have spoken with the family about this and they have asked me not to comment on the matter.’
The image – which was published in today’s edition – has stirred a strong reaction on Twitter, with people expressing their shock.
The Enquirer published a post-mortem photo of John Lennon on its cover back in 1980 and also one of Elvis in his coffin in 1977.
ARE YOU STILL NOT ENTERTAINED???!!!!
