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.

Soon, articles from the "death room" like "death towels", "death soap", "death honor bar peanuts" will be on ebay when an unnamed family member will put them for sale to fund her drug habit..

it's been over a week - i am sure the hotel already scrubbed that room down and changed everything in fact i bet they had the crime scene cleaning service there- it's not like the houstons having been paying all week to keep every one out - and i wonder why the hotel just didn't tell them that???

I hope this doesn't mean family will be selling such macabre junk. But since they're selling the funeral tape, I'll bloody well bet they'll be selling these items too.

Plonkers.

And thats the truth    

First of all, the only access to the room is with a key so maybe they were concerned about the maids or other personel. I am sure security was watching that room. We are talking about Beverly Hills, not Motel 6 here.

Her family doesn't want anyone having anything of Whitney's to sale for a quick buck because they don't want the competiton. They were just a bunch of enabling leeches when she was alive as far as I am concerned.
