Whitney Houston

Family STRIPS Hotel Room

Don't count on finding a scrap of Whitney Houston death room memorabilia -- sources tell TMZ, the singer's family has meticulously stripped the hotel room where Whitney died to preempt would-be looters.

According to sources, the family has removed nearly everything from room 434 at the Beverly Hilton hotel that hasn't been bolted down -- including bed sheets, towels ... even bits of trash.

We're told the family is concerned about people trying to make a desperate buck off Whitney's death -- raiding the singer's hotel room and trying to sell relics of her passing ... whatever they might be.

It's unclear exactly what happened to the macabre souvenirs, but we're told they were all disposed of ... discreetly.

How ignorant of some to accuse her family of selling the items on Ebay. Whitney's estate is worth 20 million and it has been projected that it will double by the end of this year. Cissy Houston can wipe her a** with dollar bills can you?

Don't get me wrong, TMZ, I like you--BUT, why that awful picture of Whitney? She's dead now, let her rest.

Shouldn't they be worried about Whitney's child and not some losers selling towels on Ebay? You can see how this family prioritizes; no wonder they are so messed up.

Whether they stripped the room or not at least it will stop potential scammers out there from trying to sell and profit off items claiming to be from Whitneys room. It was reported that people were booking that room right away cause of Whitney dying in it. So, I don't blame the family if they did. Who wants to hear someone is selling items from your dead daughters or mothers room.

Thank Goodness - This stuff would have popped up on eBay. There is no civility in our society anymore. RIP WEH - Can't we just allow the woman to be at peace?

This is one reason "tmz" has gone from a 630pm time slot, all the way to an 1130pm time slot in my town, get the facts straight. you had already reported that the "whitney" room was rented out the day after her death, and that their was a huge waiting list to occupy it in the future..now youre saying the "family" has stripped the room down to the nuts and bolts..excuse me, but, I work there, and unless your "MR.HILTON", ABSOLUTELY NO ONE would have the permission to do so. Its only a matter of time before TMZ goes bye bye.

More likely they will sell it all themselves.

Did they pay for it, or is there argument that they were looting to prevent looters?

TMZ lied about the hotel being occupied. The hotel itself, said the hotel room was taken out of rotation for the foreseeable future. They are not allowing guest to stay in that room now. Her family was right to take stuff from the room, after seeing on TMZ the deathtub and various other stuff. May whitney rest in peace.
Why is TMZ still reporting this crap. The woman was buried, nothing more to tell.
