Whitney Houston
After Whitney’s sudden death in a Hollywood hotel, the 48-year-old is said to have been given a stately send-off.

According to reports published following her death at age 48, not only was the singer interred in a “gold-lined coffin worth tens of thousands of [British] pounds,” but Whitney was also buried “wearing up to £300,000 (Ksh 30m) of jewels and designer clothes.” As of late February 2018, that’s equivalent to roughly $419,000 (Ksh 41.9m).

In addition to farewell notes written by his three children after the iconic pop singer’s death on June 25, 2009, Jackson was also buried with a single white sparkly glove — from his Thriller music video dated back in the 1980s.

Kennedy collected teeth, especially from whales that had been hunted by New England.

Kennedy’s tomb also contained letters from the president’s wife, Jackie, and his two sons, gold buttons and a tie-snap.
