Whitney Houston

Family 'Disgusted'

by Casket Photo

2/25/2012 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston's family had "their heart broken all over again" this week when they saw a photo of Whitney laying in her casket published on the cover of a magazine ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources close to the family tell TMZ the family is disgusted the photo was printed and they have no idea how security surrounding the casket was breached. We're told the family could tell from the photo that it was taken from inside the funeral home, but they have no idea who would have snapped the pic.

Our sources say Whitney's mother, Cissy, has taken the publication of the photo the hardest.

Despite their disgust and outrage, we're told the family will not investigate the matter further.  

The owner of the funeral home has denied any wrongdoing on the part of her or her staff.

The pic of Whitney's corpse seems to be a professional job. Perfect angle, distance, lighting,everything was just so. Very tastefully done. My heart goes out to her daughter who lost the best friend she will ever have in this life. I'm angry at Whitney because she had no right to leave her daughter when she could of been there for her for many more years.

Sad but at least this disrespectful act was someone other than family (we hope), unlike the Jacksons dragging Mikey's rotting corpse around stadiums for weeks for a few bucks. Whitney will never have an equal. God I loved her!

Cissy Houston needs to get a life & leave Bobbi Christina alone.That house belongs to Bobbi Christina now.She[Cissy]has nothing to do with it & Bobbi Christina is grown.Whitney probably would still be here if it wasn't for her medling mom.She might ought to set her butt down.If she goes medling with Bobbi Christina;she may have met her match.
