    Whitney Houston was a rich pop star, but apparently, she may have dwindled her fortune down to nothing. Houston's family sold footage of her star-studded funeral, which occurred Saturday, Feb. 18, to media outlets across the world to raise funds for her sole offspring, daughter Bobbi Kristina, who has been plagued by drama and drug rumors in the wake of her mother's death.

    The four-hour ceremony at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey took place in Newark, N.J., where Houston was born. It aired on CNN and multiple online outlets. However, all footage had to be pulled from websites by Sunday (Feb. 19), as a family rep told TMZ that they "agreed to license footage to several media outlets" for "customary fees."

    The customary fees "help maximize the estate for the benefit of Bobbi Kristina."

    That makes us think that Houston didn't leave much behind for her daughter, 18.

    What do you think of the family selling the footage?
