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.

The photo is staged. There should have been poop in the bathtub.

This photo is in seriously poor taste,absolutely disgusting. Whoever took this and released it for obviously a lot of money should be ashamed of themselves. This type of awful posting is basically what tmz is about these days.

LA..You assume everyone looked at it. They did not. Anyway, it's not about who or why people chose to look at it, it's about why it was posted, zero ethics. What's the difference between ethics and morality? TMZ doesn't know either.

Take this pic off your site. This is disgusting. How can you file this under RIP Whitney Houston when you do everything but letting her rest in peace.

This is so low, hope you sleep well at night and I pray that her family doesn't see these photos. There are some photos that people don't need to see and as a media outlet you need to have some kind of a soul. Bet you would have been first in line to post the dead photos of Princess Diana. Disgusting

It's a boring subject and picture, but it is impressive that TMZ can get photos like this. TMZ is showing off its ability to get the rarest and most guarded photos, Whitney's death scene less than an hour after she died.

So disappointed in TMZ. I defend your show to others as fun and relatively harmless lampooning of celebrities, most of whom deserve it for their obnoxious behavior (see Lilo). But THIS is just nasty and pointless and ugly. The woman is dead. Shame on you. I have lost my respect for what you do.

I'am just waiting for TMZ to show death photo next, where do they get these photo's & info from? either family members, her staff, or TMZ has paid insiders working every where. Because it's like as soon as someone dies, 5 mintues later its on TMZ.

STOP IT!!! Leave this alone! Why would you post this? Is there absolutely NO PRIVACY of others ever respected by you people. I'm disgusted at TMZ for this. You have now sunk to a new level. Congratulations.
