After nearly six months of hospitals, breathing tubes, and family drama, Bobbi Kristina Brown was finally laid to rest next to her mother, Whitney Houston, in New Jersey on August 3. But before that, someone captured her last moments above ground in an incredible funeral home photo -- and only RadarOnline.com can reveal exactly what it shows!
Radar has decided not to publish the photo, which shows the 22-year-old lying peacefully on a white satin pillow in her coffin. The image, reportedly priced at $100,000, is completely different from the hospice photo published by The National ENQUIRER on August 5.
Far from the grisly death portrait that some might expect to see after her difficult last months alive, the picture is a soft and flattering tribute.
Bobbi Kristina's long dark locks are parted on the right side of her head and combed out in a light wave across her shoulders. On the left side, a slight bang lies gently on her brow.
Her eyelids are dusted with a light mauve shadow, and her lashes look long and thick. Her skin, though somewhat paler than in life, is unblemished and dusted with a touch of rose blush across her cheeks. Her lips are also painted with a soft pink gloss.
In all, she has a youthful and innocent glow not often seen in photos of her last weeks alive.
The only hint of her medical struggle? Bobbi Kristina was dressed in what appears to be a burgundy brocade turtleneck, which covered the scars of her tracheotomy and breathing tube.
Above her head, a placard bears the touching script "Krissi," her family's treasured nickname.
As Radar reported, Bobbi Kristina was buried on Monday, August 3, after several final days of turmoil that mirrored her troubled life.
On Saturday, August 1, her aunt Leolah Brown was tossed from her Atlanta funeral after erupting into a wild rant in the middle of services.
She died on July 26, nearly six months to the day after she was found facedown and unresponsive in a bathtub at her Atlanta-area town home.
