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.

Come on folks at TMZ. Sure you try and be first to report the facts, but did you bother to run the Tail Number on the jet that was used? It is not registered to Tyler Perry. FAA ownership information is Public Information. Check it out. Also your iphone app takes forever to load. o

Whitney was a gift!
Her life although extraordinary was filled with the ordinary struggles that we all face. Few of us will ever know the demands of being a superstar and even fewer of us would be able to handle the demands of a private life, a public life, demands of fans, many people depending on our talents or abilities to earn a living and countless other obligations. Then there are the endless performances where fans expect more than you are capable of giving. It takes a special person to be able to do all those things and on top of all that expected to smile when the wolves are nipping at your heels.
I believe that God saw she was tired and took her home. In the end Whitney said it best in her last public performance when she sang "Yes Jesus Loves Me" and blew a farewell kiss. Whitney, yes Jesus does and always have loved you.

FYI TMZ- The plane does not belong to Tyler Perry - he has a GIII not a GIV.

That is not Tyler Perry's jet. That is a Gulfstream IV. Tyler Perry has a Gulfstream G III. Here is is the link to the flight http://flightaware.com/live/flight/RJC310/history/20120212/1830Z/KLAX/KTEB

TMZ is misleading people with that photo.

Tyler Perry is a multi-millionaire.....why wouldn't he have a private jet..??? Tyler Perry...kudos to you for your nice gesture !!! As to Whitney Houston...I suspect an accident....zanax and alcohol do not mix !!! Zanax is a very dangerous drug..it will shut-down your breathing very fast, and you won't even know it, even worse when mixed with alcohol or another drug. Personally, I have known several people who have died from Zanax.....I think Zanax should be taken off the market !!! RIP Whitney

@Leliah...for your information, although you don't seem interested in facts, Tyler Perry WAS NOT THE ONE THAT LEAKED THE STORY ABOUT HIS JET BEING AVAILABLE. TMZ (too many zits) probably followed every vehicle leaving that hotel, waited, saw the body being removed from the coroners and followed it to the airport. Doesnt' take a rocket scientist to deduce whose jet it was. People like you make me sick. You get 2 slices of bread and you swear you have the whole loaf.

@Leliah...People like you make me sick. You get 2 slices of bread and swear you have whole loaf. TMZ through anonymous "friends and family members", NOT TYLER PERRY, leaked the story about him donating his jet. He has not opened his mouth about any of this. If you followed this young man, you would know he is to full of class and dignity to pat himself on the back and most important, he is a PRACTICING Christian and his works and deeds reflect that. You owe him and his fans an big apology.
