Few people were more devastated by Whitney Houston’s death than her ex-boyfriend, Ray J. At her funeral, Ray J was distraught and crying as her casket was escorted out of the church. Reports claimed that the singer was grief-stricken for weeks after her death. But now, six months after Houston’s passing, Ray J has gained some closure as he finally returned to the hotel where Houston tragically died.
Ray J was reportedly one of the first people to arrive at the Beverly Hilton hotel after Houston was found dead in her hotel room, but he has avoided returning to the hotel for months, saying it was “too hard” to return to the scene of her death.
But according to TMZ, Ray J had a scheduled media event at the hotel as he promoted his new TV project, “The Rickey Smiley Show.”
Sources claim that Ray J was wrought with emotions as made his first steps back into the Beverly Hilton. Ray allegedly told friends around him that “it hurt inside” to relive that tragic day and that he said it was “very weird” walking the halls again.
But despite his sadness, Ray J told friends that Houston wanted him to do well and would be proud of him.
