Whitney Houston has only been dead about ten days and was only laid to rest a day ago, but it is evident that people are attempting to cash in any way they can. In order to curtail this, Whitney Houston's family has removed everything that was not bolted down from room 434 at the Beverly Hilton, where the famed singer died.
The family has taken everything. Bed sheets, the mattress, towels--even her trash--was removed from the hotel, reported TMZ. The fear is that these items will appear on eBay or other auctions sites in order for people to make a quick buck on Houston's death.
It is unclear what happened to the souvenirs, but TMZ reported they were inconspicuously removed from the hotel and disposed.
The 48-year-old singer died on Feb. 11 at the Beverly Hilton, hours before she was to attend a party for the Grammys. She was found dead in her hotel bathtub. A cause of death has yet to be determined.
On Saturday, she was mourned at an invitation only funeral at her childhood church in Newark, N.J. A host of celebrities, including Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys came out to pay tribute to the singer, reported UKPA. She was buried the next day.
