An image of Whitney Houston lying dead in her casket has been published on the frontpage of a national magazine.
The star was found dead in a hotel room at the Beverly Hilton on 11 February and her "homegoing" funeral service was held last Saturday, with her burial taking place the following day.
Whitney's family were allowed the opportunity to view the body before she was buried, but it seems one insensitive family member took a photo of her remains and passed it on to the National Enquirer.
The magazine published the photo on the frontpage of their latest issues, causing shock for fans of the singer.
The image comes just a week after the same publication hired an actress to pose in the position that Whitney was reportedly found in after being pulled out of the bath, and subsequently printing the image on the cover of the gossip rag.
Was it wrong for the National Enquirer to publish the photo?
