I’m sure you know, everyone was waiting on Ray J to release a statement on Whitney Houston’s death…well here it is:
“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. Nippy, I miss you so much! You were so happy and full of love. Your smile will live in my heart forever.”
The singer said the world lost an icon but he lost a “close friend.” Calling her by her nickname, he added: “Nippy I miss you so much!”
His representative, Courtney Barnes, says Ray J, whose sister is singer Brandy, will be at Saturday’s funeral for Houston in Newark, N.J.
