Whitney Houston

Family STRIPS Hotel Room

to Thwart Looters

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.

THERE ARE SOME (NOT ME OF COURSE) THAT THINK THE TRASH WAS DISPOSED OF IN JERSEY?

I hope they paid for the things they took. But frankly I wouldn't count on it, I even doubt the room will be charge for her stay. The thing is when did they strip the room ,because if it wasn't until after the funeral , anyone from the hotel staff could have taken things and replaced them with a new one. So it may have been all for nothing.

I don't get this comment:

RE: "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."

Isn't this what the Hustons pretty much do anytime they rent a room?

I think the family removed only normal things, but that is not enough. The hotel management should change the room number. I would remove everything, the bed, the carpet, wallpaper, even the tub and tiles, does not matter that they belong to the hotel. The family could pay it, but then the room is empty

C'mon people this is the same crap they pulled with Jackson. The hotel already had that done and soon as the body was removed and got the all clear to enter the room.

Well then they've definitely stashed the crack then. Good luck finding that.

I heard the hotel has already been renting out the room. There's a long waiting list to stay there.
On another note...why do celebs with huge talent self-destruct young? MJ, Whitney, Cobain, Elvis, etc? Is it all about getting on drugs? or something else?
