After days of getting blamed for Whitney's death, Ray J has broken silence...
When the news came out that the late great Whitney Houston has died, people started pointing the fingers at her "boyfriend"....R&B singer, Ray J.... who had supposedly started dating again a few weeks before her death.
There were even rumors that Ray was actually in the room when she passed, that we know now is not true.
Although, he did not speak on any rumors and speculations, Ray released this statement...
"Over the past few days, I've tried to process the emptiness that I am experiencing. What my heart feels cannot be expressed in words. The world lost an icon, but I lost my close friend."
Ray J continued,
"Nippy, I miss you so much!"Nippy was a nickname Whitney's dad gave her.
And Ray J adds,
"You were so happy and full of love. Your smile will live in my heart forever."
A very somber Ray and his singer, fellow R&B singer, Brandy were spotted in the airport heading to Whitney's funeral...
Word is Ray J, reportedly raced over to the Beverly Hilton hotel as soon as he heard of the sudden death but just like Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, he was also not allowed denied access.
The family had a private viewing today, called "Whitney's Home Coming" and the funeral is Saturday Feb. 18.
