Whitney Houston

Family 'Disgusted'

by Casket Photo

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.

Funny how TMZ hasn't run any stories on the family's disgust with the Beverly Hilton's leaking of all those hallway photos, including Whitney's corpse being hauled out.

They should be more disgusted with their family seeing that they were the ones selling her death pictures from the funeral, hotel room, etc.

The owner of the funeral home denied any wrongdoing... Uhm, WHO ELSE COULD IT HAVE BEEN, except an employee of the funeral home making a buck off the dead. Of course, they live their lives, living off the dead, so why would Whitney Houston be any different? The Houston family OWES IT to Whitney to find out who it was.

Is it that they are disgusted somebody took the pic or are they mad that they didn't make money off the pic?

It's too bad but the reality is the family is selling these photos.
The gravy train is over, and most will get NADA in the will.
So who do you really think is selling these?

Come on people don't be so stupid and believe everything you read.
