Whigham previously spoke to the media to deny that she took the photo during the February 18 private viewing. And she denied wrongdoing on the part of her staff. Despite being asked to maintain radio silence by the Houston family, Whigham spoke to the UK’s Daily Mail to clear her name. Then she told The Los Angles Times it ”seems doubtful” the family leaked the photo.
On Thursday, Whigham spoke at a press conference to deny wrongdoing and placate those sending her threats because they assumed she was the perpetrator. She’s NOT the person who leaked the photo, but she knows who did. Although she’s refusing to release a name and clear herself completely.
Added Rev. Jethro James, pastor of Paradise Baptist Church, “It’s up to the Houston family to release the name.”
