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.

This entire editorial is in very bad taste. TMZ you should be ashamed!

Class act TMZ, NOT. Enough. Gossip is one thing, but salacious BS is another. You go too far. Do you really think the family wants to see this? Some of them saw it firsthand and I doubt seriously they want to see it again. I know I don't want to. Did you get some of the water, just so you could say you did, too?

I love you guys but sometimes you cross that fine line between sensational and crass! Very distasteful and disrepectful to the dead and their families.

Utterly ridiculous.It is a tub for heaven's sake- most bathroom have them. That you actually think that this is of interest blows my mind. That you paid someone for this pictures even more so.

You reached a new low. Gossip is my secret vise, but even I can't support you in this. This puts you in the class of paparazzi that contributed to Princess Di's death.

Unrelated to the crime scene photo. Will Whitney's doctor be brought up on charges like MJ's. May be a different prescription, but a known drug/alcohol addict having 6 prescriptions sounds like a crime to me.

No big suprise here. He family and friends sold of tons of private photos over the years. Sadly, that olive oil probably made that tub really slippery...
Someone probably made alot of money selling that photo, and the gurney one to TMZ. No one else has inside stuff like this.

TMZ...this is a new low. Now you have digusted your audience. You obviously have very young and immature people that work there and think that this is ok.

TMZ--you have hit a new low. About as pathetic as it gets. And we wonder why society is so messed up.
