Ray J Opens About Whitney Houston’s Death: ‘I’m Still Hurting’

Ray J and Whitney Houston

Ray J is still reeling from the death of Whitney Houston last month. The R&B singer opened up to the media for the first time during a press conference for the Brotherhood Crusade and Mothers in Action Organizations in Los Angeles on Friday (March 9). Tears rolled down his face as he remembered his dear friend, whom he called Nippy.

“I really miss my friend, you know, I really do,” said an emotional Ray J. “I’m still hurting.”

He was at a loss for words while speaking to reporters. “I’m really emotional right now, I really don’t know what to say,” he continued. “It’s just such a tough time for me. I’ve been through a lot in these past two weeks. I’m able to look at life in a whole different way.”

During his charitable visit, the 31-year-old donated school supplies to the children. “Like Whitney, I love giving back to kids,” he said. “I enjoy being around people that support me and that give me a sense of peace, and that’s what these kids do for me.”

Whitney Houston Soars in New ‘Sparkle’ Footage

Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks

Whitney Houston was on her way to a triumphant return while shooting what would become her final on-screen performance in Sparkle, a remake of the 1976 film. When “ET” paid a visit to the set in Detroit, the iconic singer’s voice was full and she looked “heavier and healthier,” according to host Mark Steins.

She filmed scenes at a house and church, similar to the one she grew up in, and sat down with her co-star Jordin Sparks. Whitney shared how she didn’t let daughter Bobbi Kristina listen to explicit lyrics and Jordin recalled the time she quickly changed a song when Whitney was in the room.

She was in curlers while shooting her scenes, in which she plays a “run down” mother, but insisted on dressing up for the interview. Check out some on-set footage from Whitney’s final film, which hits theaters August 17.
