Funeral home says it didn’t give photo of Whitney Houston to Enquirer; Chris Brown accused of stealing phone

A representative for the Whigham Funeral Home has denied it supplied a photo of Whitney Houston in her casket to the National Enquirer: “We don't like it because it implicates us. ... Whitney was a personal friend to me and my family. We would not do that.” (E!)
