The family of the Whitney Houston has decided to encase her  body in cement to prevent grave robbers from getting to her jewelry that she was buried in. According to the Daily Star, the late singer had been buried with over half a million dollars' worth of jewelry and her grave had been guarded by private security guards since her unexpected death in February. She was buried with a diamond brooch and earrings to name a few. 

The Daily Star reported that a family source said: "Cissy can't afford to keep paying guards forever. A concrete encasement is the only answer."

The "I'll Always Love You" singer died in her hotel bathtub on February 11. Official reports stated that Houston died due to "drowning and effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use."

Houston's funeral was streamed live on February 18. Daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, Dionne Warwick, Alicia Keys, Tyler Perry, Kevin Costner, Cece Winans, Rickey Minor, Donnie McClurkin, and Kim Burrell, were some of those present at the service. 

Meanwhile, Whitney's mother Cissy is planning to write a tell-all book about her late daughter. According to The Sun, Cissy said: "I want to stop the lies, It's going to be the bad. It's going to be the good."
