Whitney’s mother Cissy Houston is reportedly having her daughter’s body flown from LA back to her hometown of Newark or possibly to Atlanta as early as tomorrow Feb. 14.

Whitney Houston is finally coming home. The 48-year-old singer was found dead in her Beverly Hills Hotel room on Feb. 11 after she allegedly overdosed on drugs. TMZ is reporting that Whitney’s body will be flown to Atlanta, the city where she lived with her daughter Bobbi Kristina, 18, for the past several years and NBC is reporting that the singer’s remains may be flown to her birth city of Newark, NJ. 

Some sources tell HollywoodLife.com that if Whitney’s body is transported to Atlanta, it will most likely be taken to the Willie A. Watkins Funeral Home in downtown Atlanta.

Whitney allegedly overdosed on prescription pills and was found in her hotel room bathtub. Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, 18, has been to the hospital twice in the past 24 hours and is reportedly on a suicide watch.
