Newark, New Jersey - The U.S. tabloid, the National Enquirer gave its readership an exclusive open casket photo of Whitney Houston taken during a private wake on Friday. Houston's front page photo appeared in the latest edition of the National Enquirer.
The Enquirer didn't provide a by line for the photo and no information has been revealed for the cost of obtaining the picture. Enquirer's headline read, "Whitney: The Last Photo!"
Houston's wake took place at the Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey. Funeral services were held on Saturday followed by private burial on Sunday.
She wore jewelry worth at least $500,000, according to family members. Houston's family is keeping quiet about who took the open casket photo, which has raised criticism targeted at the National Enquirer.
Houston died on February 11 at the age of 48. Her body was found at a Hilton hotel room in the bathtub. Preliminary investigation results indicated Houston had died from a combination of mixing prescribed drugs and alcohol. The coroner's report later confirmed, that Houston's heart stopped after taking a combination of suppressants that included xana, valium and alcohol, which were found in her body system.
