With wife Nancy Shevell in tow, the former member of The Beatles places a bouquet of yellow roses on a memorial created outside the Beverly Hilton hotel where Houston died on February 11.
Paul McCartney has personally paid tribute to the late Whitney Houston. Two days after the "I Will Always Love You" hitmaker died in her suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the former member of The Beatles was spotted visiting the makeshift memorial created outside the hotel.
Dressed casually in sweatpants and a sports jacket, the 69-year-old singer laid a bouquet of yellow roses at the scene. During the Monday, February 13 outing, he was joined by his wife Nancy Shevell. He was also caught on tape shaking hands with some of Houston's fans before leaving.
McCartney reportedly turned the focus back to Houston when some fans tried to praise his performance at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 12 night. According to TMZ, the "Yesterday" singer told them, "This is about Whitney, not me."
Houston passed away at the age of 48 last Saturday, February 11. Beverly Hills Police has recently confirmed that she was found underwater and unconscious in the hotel's bathtub before declared dead. Her funeral reportedly will take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey this coming Friday. Her body arrived at Whigham Funeral Home just before midnight on Monday.
