A (unauthorized) picture of Whitney Houston’s dead body in her open casket is featured on the cover of the latest issue of the National Enquirer. In the shocking picture, the 48 year-old singer, who looks peacefully asleep, is wearing makeup, a purple dress, $500,000 worth of jewelry and a pair of gold slippers while lying inside her golden coffin.
National Enquirer just hit an all time low with this cover and headline “Whitney: The Last Photo.” The picture in question was reportedly taken at the Whigham Funeral Home, where the family attended a private wake on Friday, the eve of Whitney’s “home going” service with over 1,000 very special guests.
The tabloid has refused to divulge the source of the morbid picture, while the owner of the funeral home refuses to comment on the leak by the request of the Houston family. They should just sue the Enquirer, in my opinion. I’m not even sure how or on what foundation, but that cover is completely disrespectful to Whitney’s memory, her family and her fans all over the world.
