Funeral plans are beginning to take shape for singer Whitney Houston, who died Saturday at 48. Her body will be flown to her home state, New Jersey, and her family is said to be considering holding a wake Thursday and a funeral Friday at the Prudential Center in Newark, MSNBC.com reports.
The facility hosts home games for the NHL’s New Jersey Devils and the New Jersey Nets of the NBA.
Meanwhile, TMZ.com is reporting that the family is dealing with fears that Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 18, might be suicidal. She has reportedly been hospitalized twice since her mother died.
TMZ reported separately that Bobbi Kristina was involved in an incident one day before her mother’s death that bears eerie similarities to Houston’s death. The teenager reportedly fell asleep in a bathtub in the same hotel where her mother died in a bathtub the next day.
TMZ reports: “According to our sources, friends of Bobbi Kristina tried knocking on her door repeatedly Friday night … but she didn’t answer. We’re told they called security to get them to unlock the door and help them get Bobbi out of the tub.”
As we previously reported, indications from the coroner are that Houston’s death is related to to prescription drugs and alcohol. However, results of an autopsy have not yet been made public.
