There will be no public memorial service for Whitney Houston at the 18,000-seat Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, despite some news reports claiming otherwise.

The Houston family is determined to have a private service.

Whitney Houston’s funeral service will take place in the very same New Jersey church where Houston used to sing as a child.

“In compliance with the family’s wishes the city is not moving forward with any public ceremony.”

In an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan Tonight Chaka Khan said of the late singer:

I stand on, whoever flew her out to perform at that party, should have provided someone to be there. To somehow, keep the riff-raff out of the situation. To keep the dangerous people away. I think we all, as artists, because we’re highly sensitive people, and this machine around us, this so-called ‘music industry,’ is such a demonic thing. It sacrifices people’s lives and their essences at the drop of a dime…I had a manager once say to me, ‘ You know you’re worth more money dead than alive.’ I mean, I’ve cried for her, a lot over the years, so many times. In a way I’ve mourned her, because I felt something was gonna happen because she was so close to the wire.”
