The decision about where the singers funeral with be has caused some infighting amongst Whitney’s folks.

According to TMZ reports:

There’s a rift in Whitney Houston’s family over where she should be laid to rest … TMZ has learned.

Family sources tell us … Dionne Warwick, Whitney’s cousin, and Cissy Houston, Whitney’s mom, both want the burial to take place in Atlanta. They believe Atlanta is the place Whitney enjoyed the most and had the fondest memories.

But the rest of the family wants Whitney buried in Newark — where she was born, and subsequently discovered at a local Baptist church (below).

We’re told Cissy’s position is succinct: “Michael Jackson did not want to be buried in New Jersey, and Whitney did not want to be buried in New Jersey.”

We’re told Cissy and Dionne caved, after other family members convinced them New Jersey is where the world will remember her most.

It’s unclear why they think the world will remember Whitney more in Newark than ATL.

No offense New Jersey.

Do you think Whitney would be better placed to rest in Atlanta or New Jersey?
