Ray J Returns to Hotel Where Whitney Houston Died
Ray J recently returned to the Hotel where his former love, the late Whitney Houston, was found lifeless less than 6 months ago.
It was his first visit back to the somber site after avoiding it for months.
For the first time since Whitney Houston’s death, her ex-BF Ray J has returned to the hotel where she died back in February … TMZ has learned.
Ray J — who was one of the first people to arrive at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on that fateful day — had avoided returning to the hotel for months because it was “too hard” for him to return to the scene.
Ray J had to overcome his fears to do a scheduled media event at the hotel for his new TV project, “The Rickey Smiley Show” … an event he couldn’t afford to miss.
Sources close to Ray tell us … the singer was overcome with emotion when he arrived to the hotel … telling friends “it hurt inside” to have to relive his most painful memory. He also said it was “very weird” walking the halls again.
Still, Ray J is telling friends … Whitney wanted him to do well and would be proud of him.
Sounds like a pretty difficult day for Ray J.
