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.

Seriously people?!?! You are bashing TMZ for releasing this pic, then you obviously have never watched television! Shows like First 48 show much more than this (they will show a body) and not to mention this pic will be all over the news later today! If you didnt want to see it then why did you click and open it? Dont voluntarily look at something and then complain about it!

You are right, TMZ, it's a tub! Who would have ever thought of this that when someone dies in a tub there has to be a tub somewhere. Good work, guys.

But very suspicious: a towel. What in the world is someone doing with a towel in the same room with a tub? Wiping offf the gravy? Miracles, miracles.

A new low for TMZ. Posting that picture is sickening and in the worst possible taste. Who published that, Brian McDaniel? That would pretty much be par for the course with his puerile sense of humor.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Bev Hills Detectives paid TMZ a visit after posting this, if it is truly genuine in the first place?

I know we live in an "instant video / picture" social media time, but some things are off limits. People would still come here for the latest information on her death, but this really takes TMZ to a new low. You should be ashamed, but I recognize you must be allowing the kids there to post what they want and they have no clue what the word respect means.

TMZ is all about the money and first to know scoops. Teach a sensitivity class or something Harvey. Your kids are embarrassing you.

Could be any bathtub at the Hilton. Shocked that you don't have Entertainment Tonight's photo of her body in the back of the coroners van or the airplane landing with her body, or the hearse carrying her body. I can't help but wonder if Whitney wasn't suffering from some female uterine problems as she got older. Blood on her legs, Midol, throat infection. A lot of woman at her age start to have peri-menopause with severe, erratic bleeding, wild hormonal shifts, fibroids, and other crazy unexplained symptoms. A lot of us have to have hysterectomy's at this age due to these problems. I believe she was feeling really ill all over and was desperately trying to make Clive Davis happy and perform at his party. She was already sick with probably strep throat, heavy bleeding and cramps (the Midol).
She probably threw back a couple of xanax and drank a glass of champagne and the hot water in the bath just triggered her body to relax so much..she either had a coronary, stroke, or just her lungs quit working and she stopped breathing. Alcohol didn't help if she even had one drink to relax. Causes dehydration. I had to stop even having one drink and told the doctor not to prescribe me any more xanax as I feared one day at 55 with all these ridiculous symptoms...I simply would go to sleep one day and never wake up. It is hell getting old..especially if you are a woman. Whitney had tons of money and an endless list of relatives and so called friends to keep an eye on her. Which leaves me pondering the age old question "can money buy happiness?" Or even "good health?" Apparently not. I often think if I had money, I could get good doctors and health care and feel better then I do...but apparently not. Over and over again it keeps happening to the rich celebs...Anna Nicole, MJ, Whitney, Elvis, Belushi, John Candy...dying in the bathroom or their bedroom alone.

This is truly sickening for even TMZ. You are truly wrong for this harvey. I hope when you die, someone takes a picture of you dead in your deathroom. You guys bash clive for having a party and you put this online. Obviously cops are taking these pictures and releasing them to TMZ.

This video of a camera man chasing the van and getting his "money shot" was on ET last night. Surprised they beat TMZ to this.
