Kevin Costner

Bringing Baggage

to Whitney's Funeral

2/17/2012 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0217_costner_xposureKevin Costner had his hands full at LAX moments ago, where he's set to board a plane bound for Whitney Houston's "Home Going" ceremony in Jersey -- grabbing his wife with one hand, and a trolley bag with the other.

As TMZ previously reported, Whitney's funeral is expected to be star-studded -- with invites like Oprah, Stevie Wonder, and Aretha Franklin.

Mel Gibson was invited, but is unable to attend.

We posted video earlier today -- Ray J and Brandy are already on their way to the East Coast.

This so called Respectful funeral is nothing but money. Clive Davis had been paying all of her bills but Clive Davis wasn't going to pay for Whitneys funeral. Say what you want about Jacksons they never streamedlined his funeral.


Houstons wanted Whitneys funeral to be 'PRIVATE AND RESPECTFUL' yet, being streamelined on the internet? See what happens when Clive Davis isn't paying for this.


This is not streamedlined for Whitney Houston fans. Money. Clive Davis had been paying all of her bills, he would not pay for her funeral. Her fans were walking out of her so-called comeback concerts when she decided to show up. Houston was so bad, so wasted she forgot the words her voice was so bad she was booed fans left and wanting their money back. Whitney Houston was wasted right up till the day she died.


Whitney Houston...Once upon a time. 20 years ago.

For general awareness and because TMZ has placed an odd emphasis on it by putting it in quotes...Christians believe that when you die, you return to your heavenly "home", hence the terminology "home going" service instead of simply saying funeral. If you don't share that belief that's fine, however to make a mockery of it is in poor taste...as is the headline to this story.

Did he borrow that silly scarf from Jessica Alba? Miss Alba aka Hollywoods worst actress wears one of those things around LA when it's 90 degrees out. I guess Jessica wants to be known for that instead of one box office bomb after another.

How long before Whitney Houston's parasitic family & friends attempt to profit from her demise? Her used panties will be on ebay in no time.

I'm betting this is the first time so many famous celebrities have attended a funeral for a crackhead.

After Mel's N word rant I'm not surprised he doesn't want to be in a building full of African Americans.

Costner is doing the classic 'token' respectful just like everyone else who doesn't mean a word they say. Suppose to come across as legit and sincere but no.


Newark and surrounding gangbangers are loving this.

JHC! How gay can this guy look anyway?

To the moron who said Costner is a "class act". Ummm....don't think so. This guy cheated on his first wife for years and years, a wife who was with him when he had $100.00 bucks in the bank. He has a child out of wedlock with some other girl. Now that's some class act people.
