Whitney Houston's Body

To Be Flown Back East

On Tyler Perry's Jet

2/13/2012 11:19 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0213_whitney-plane_abilityFILMS_EXWhitney Houston's body will be transported to the East Coast today on Tyler Perry's private jet ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Whitney's body is currently on its way to the airport -- and the plane will take off as soon as it arrives.

Sources tell TMZ, Tyler Perry rushed to the Beverly Hilton hotel Saturday as soon as he heard about Whitney's death -- and immediately offered up his private plane to the family.

We're told Whitney's funeral is taking place somewhere in New Jersey later this week.

Tyler Perry does not get an applaud from me. If it was so thoughtful why not do it and not advertise it. Just do it but Im happy her mother will find some peace and not have that worry on her hands

I know that when someone dies they say "the body" but I wish they would stop saying "it" instead of "she" She is being flown back east is much easier to read then "it" is being flown back east.

I'm not going to assume that Tyler announced anything. Whitney's family may have mentioned this or someone at the hospital could have overheard the conversation. Some of us are so damn ignorant and assume anything.

It's not that Tyler Perry is advertising it, the media has their way of finding things out from other sources.

REALLY TMZ???????? REALLY???????????? I THOUGHT HER BODY WAS GOING TO ATLANTA AS PER YOUR "SOURCES" IN AN EARLIER POST. STOP BACKPEDALLING AND WAIT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE FOR THE CORONER'S REPORT AND REMOVE THAT DISGUSTING POST ABOUT HER LAST MEAL. I REALLY HOPE TMZ DIDN'T PAY MONEY FOR THAT LAST MEAL POST BECAUSE IT WAS NOT WHITNEY'S....YOU'VE BEEN PUNKED TMZ!

Tyler Perry, willing to give the dead singer a ride to the East coast. Where was she where the living person needed a hand to break free from her demons?

All the "Stars" with their crocodile tears now, when she was in desperate need of help for years.

And TMZ, you are the worst. how many stories since she died? Maybe twenty? The woman is dead - leave her family in peace to mourn her death.
