Washington, Feb 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Reports say Whitney Houston’s body was flown on Tyler Perry’s private jet to New Jersey. Tyler is currently in Los Angeles where he is promoting his upcoming movie “Good Deeds.”

Houston was found dead on Saturday at the Beverly Hills hotel in Los Angeles. The 48-year-old’s body was found in a bathtub in his hotel room. She was scheduled to attend the 54th Grammy Awards on Sunday but her death overshadowed the event.

Rev. Jesse Jackson told reporters that a memorial for the singer will likely be held this weekend. He was quoted as saying that, “I was in New Jersey yesterday and my impression is that [the body is] going there. The mother is distraught. She is a woman of strong faith and she has wrestled with her daughter for a long time. She was under the impression that Whitney was coming out of it. She is completely stunned.”

Meanwhile the cause of death is not expected to be released for weeks. The preliminary investigation has ruled out any foul play. Investigators have also failed to confirm reports that Houston drowned in her bathtub. TMZ reports that the singer was killed when she drowned in her bathtub after accidental overdose of prescription drugs.
