Whitney Houston's Body

To Be Flown Back East

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.

Super cool of him to offer his jet to the family like that. Who is leaking this information though? I don't think they would want it known where her body is, to prevent the paparazzi knowing. So someone is leaking this crap and making a payday off of her death, which is sick!

I was wondering why you said Atlanta in an earlier post when everyone else said New Jersey. Given that she is from New Jersey it made a lot more sense.

Tyler Perry is the kinda man I would want by my side. He is a great friend to all and has done many thoughtful things in his life. It is nice to know there are still kind people in this world.

I'm sure that this is probably just a "head-fake" to throw off the press on when her body will be flown out of LA.

Tyler's sniffing around the rights to her life story. What a shame it would be for a story like this to be left up to Tyler Perry. Whitney needs Roman Polanski or maybe Martin Scorcese or Frances Ford Coppolo. Not a P.T. Barnum like Tyler Perry.

Whitney Houston's body has a 'Weekend at Bearney's" feel to it.

I have been following Tyler Perry for awhile now. He is a good man, a kind man and a generous man. He doesn't flaunt his good deeds, however, when he does purposely bring them to light, it is usually to inspire others to follow suit or to bring awareness to a cause. He has worked hard to bring himself through hard times and now that he is blessed, he shares those blessings with others in need. Wherever Whitney is headed, if this story is true, she is in very good, loving and capable hands.

The funeral of Whitney Houston has been tentatively scheduled for Friday at the Prudential Center in Newark, according to a local community leader with ties to the family.

The family has not yet disclosed the funeral plans other than to say it will be in Newark, where Houston was born.

The arena, which seats more than 18,500 people, represents the largest indoor venue in Newark and could accommodate far greater crowds than the New Hope Baptist Church, the red brick house of worship that served as Houston’s childhood church.
