Whitney Houston Funeral

Casket Under LOCKDOWN

Until Burial

2/18/2012 2:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The casket of Whitney Houston.
The casket of Whitney Houston will be heavily guarded until the burial Sunday morning, with a whopping 10 security guards tasked with keeping watch on it ... TMZ has learned. 

According to our sources, the casket will be kept at the cemetery until tomorrow's burial ... but will be well-protected until then.

We're told the family will get an opportunity to see Whitney one more time between now and tomorrow morning.  

Today's funeral service featured touching testimonials by Kevin Costner and Clive Davis, among others.

It amazes me that people are talking so disrespectful about Whitney saying she did not deserve a big funeral she wasn't a soldier and stuff like that. Her family honored her just like the princess she was to them, and the angel with a voice we all know from listening to her songs, so people don't dare take that woman's legacy away from her family and friends. Yes she was as drug user and there are plenty of people like that in people's family so how the **** can people judge. Her funeral is the funeral of typical Americans the only difference is it was televised and her friends happen to be rich and famous. So people complaining STFU and I hope when yall die your family throw you corpses in the ****ing dump where they belong for yall ignorance.

no1uno: Your right. The Rev does live in eastern long island. I live here, and many times I have seen him walking around. Thinks he is hot stuff, but no one cares about him. Just a big old gas bag! He seems to behave himself on MNSB. Don't know why MSNBC hired him. I am surprised he never had Whitney out on long island. Such a show off!!!!!!

They better keep the casket on lockdown. That piece of ghetto trash Ray J might wanna get on Whitney one more time or that piece of ghetto trash Bobby Brown might want one last chance to abuse Whitney the crack head whore.

Once again, PerezHilton stole this Headline word for word and then posted it on his page after TMZ did. That guy and his people almost copy and past TMZ's content.

Bobby brought his family with him, not the guy from the quicky shop. They should have treated him like any other grieving person there. That just was not respectful, no matter what.
