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.

so glad she is going to be laid to rest in her hometown, but still so sad she is gone. i hope her daughter stays strong and does EVER get into drugs because addiction is also genetic you can be pre disposed it runs in families just like any other disease.

Leliah..I dont think he "advertised it". He is very private and most of his good deeds are kept quiet....but you cant keep anything like this private. The news, cameras and reporters are just reporting whatever they can and hear over in LA. An angel.....if this is true. They were very close for years.

Just because TMZ has learned of this - does not mean that Tyler Perry is the one offering up the information. He does enough and has enough where he does not need the attention. Give the guy a break, he is doing THEM a favor. Leave him alone.. what has he done in this other than be a very kind man.

The most insane thing about this post: Tyler Perry has a private jet.

I could understand him renting a jet... but OWNING ONE?

Insane... but, hey, good for him!

Will he call it Ttler Perry's Whitney Houston funeral? This fool feels the need to put his name on the front of every lame movie he does. Most of his films make black people look ridiculous, Tyler Perry is in love with himself

For all of you ignorant people who don't bother concerning yourselves with anyone who is black, Tyler Perry is: A black filmmaker, entrepreneur, playwright, actor, humanitarian, director, producer and great friend of Oprah Winfrey. He is a great guy. As for Whitney, God rest her soul and may he comfort her grieving family. My prayers are abundantly bestowed on all of them.

The MILLIONS of Americans who do not understand or take seriously that MOST MEDICATION cannot be taken with alcohol is STUNNING. Combine this with problems caused by Alcohol Withdrawal Syndrome and you have an EPIDEMIC of accidental deaths that COULD BE AVOIDED. We need to GET THE WORD OUT about both problems. Why does this not happen? Simple. BIG PHARMA AND BIG ALCOHOL DO NOT WANT YOU TALKING ABOUT IT. Don't believe me? Check the lobbying stats. Follow the money.

Oh, Tyler Perry, how convenient.. your new movie 'Good Deeds' focuses on a self-centered, egotistical downlow brother who helps out a hoodrat and decides the world owes it to him to live out his true dreams. Great marketing, you sick closet case PRICK.
