Whitney Houston

The Death Tub

2/14/2012 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The bathtub Whitney Houston died inTMZ has obtained a photo of the tub in which Whitney Houston died.

The photo was taken moments after police and EMTs removed Whitney's body from the bathroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The photo shows the tub still filled with water.  There's a gravy dish at the bottom of the tub, which Whitney typically filled with olive oil to keep her skin soft.

Notice the two circular objects -- they're hair ties.

And there's a towel at the bottom of the tub -- possibly worn by Whitney to keep her hair dry while she was bathing.

All of these comments are right on target. However, I'm wondering how many of you thought the Nicki Minaj performance on the Grammy's was appropriate 'entertainment'.

wow you guys really took this too far. its bad enough that we are so invasive when celebs are alive, and I am guilty of it. I read gossip blogs and mags. but the headline! complete lack of respect. this isnt a movie. this is a real life. it is your job to post news about this story but none of us need to see the tub she died in. its none of our business and you took it to far. you should all be ashamed of yourselves. i am disgusted with this site. utter trash.

Its sad she will be missed greatly as for viewers who are disturb with the information, you were no forced to view it. Atleast they are reporting facts and not fiction. I do agree somethings can be left out but there dedication to bring out the story is what drives this story.

Maybe she slipped getting out. That's alot of Olive oil to have in a bathtub. Very slippery, but what ever the reason, very sad for all concerned.

LMAO This is the 21st century people, welcome, and get used to it. If you don't want to be the first to know or get "behind-the-scenes" footage or pics, THEN GO FOLLOW THE SHEEP TO THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA DOOR. And don't let the door hit you in the a$$ on the way out!

I have read a lot of the comments below and I agree...TMZ you have gone too far with this posting.
Show some humanity and compassion. You have no respect for the dead. It looks like this picture was taken by the police and you paid someone to get this picture thinking it was a good idea (great entertainment)...Absolutely discussing of you to post this picture.
New flash...this is not CSI
I think you need to take this picture off of your site and write an apology to the Houston family and to the Whitney fan around the world!!!

This don't happen nowhere but California. And you know why? Because of a Calf.Law that protects celebrities against the Death Penalty, in Murder-1 Cases. Which means, no matter how much evidence they have against such person. They will not find them guilty. That's why all these recent celebrities have been getting off the hook. You don't see these celebs, catching murder cases anywhere else. Cause they know they gonna get prosecuted, found guilty and get the sparks fried out of his a--!!
So as long as Calf. have this f-- up! law, w/special interests for celebrities. They'll be running around searching for their next victum. I would never go or even live in Calf. That's why they have earthquakes. The next time they have a earthquake, I hope it shakes the whole Justice and law enforcement System down. I don't trust none of them. So don't trust anything you hear coming out of their filthy mouths. Detectives, Coroners, investigators, etc. in Calf.
