Ray J: Whitney Houston Sex Tape Claims Are ‘Despicable’

“The despicable tabloid report released today claiming the existence of a sex tape between Ray J and Whitney Houston is not true,” Ray J’s rep, Courtney Barnes, told E! News. “This story along with so many others have been released to sell magazines. There is no sex tape or explicit photos.”

According toStar, Ray is reluctant to turn over the tapes to the Houston family, or destroy them, because of their potential financial worth.

BREAKING UPDATE: RAY J RESPONDS: THESE SEX TAPE CLAIMS ARE “DESPICABLE”

Whitney Houston‘s ex-boyfriend Ray J has “a ton of sexually explicit photos and videos” starring he and Whitney, a source claims in the new issue of Star.

According to the report, Whitney’s family has “been in contact with Ray and told him they do not want any photos or videos painting her in a bad light to come out,” the source said. “[The family] explained to Ray that now is the time to honor Whitney, not drag her legacy down.”

But the Houston family hasn’t totally convinced Ray J to keep the alleged tapes a secret. “[Ray J] has been stalling [to sell, or hand them over, them to Whitney’s family] because he knows he’s sitting on a gold mine.”

BOBBI KRISTINA: Cissy Houston Does NOT Approve Of ‘Incestuous’ Romance! VOTE: You Agree?

Whitney Houston‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina‘s romance with her “adopted brother” Nick Gordon isn’t sitting well grandmother Cissy Houston.

And that’s an understatement!

A friend of Cissy tells TMZ that the matriarch said “what they’re doing it incestuous,” in reference to video and photos of Bobbi Kristina, 19, and Nick, 22, kissing.

Whitney never officially adopted Nick, but took him in when he was just 12 years old after his mother was unable to care for him, TMZ reported.

Still, the pair refer to one another as “brother” and “sister,” and Nick lives with Bobbi Kristina in the Houston family home in Atlanta.

After rumors that the two are dating surfaced earlier this month, Nick took to Twitter to slam haters.

“Yea we got a little closer and what!” he wrote.

 

Bobbi Kristina Secretly Engaged To Nick Gordon? But He Says Their Not Dating!

Bobbi Kristina is secretly engaged to Nick Gordon, a longtime friend who’s known as her “adopted brother,” Star is reporting.

“Nick proposed to Krissy on March 10, and she said yes,” a family friend told Star. “Krissy said Nick is the only person she trusts in the world. They have a very deep connection.”

Bobbi Kristina, 19, and Nick, 22, live together in Whitney’s $1.2 million Atlanta townhouse.

While Star is reporting about the engagement, Nick himself told ABCNews.com, “We’re just close — just going through her mom’s passing and grieving together.”

His grandmother Maxine Gordon, meanwhile, tells Star, “Nick took care of Whitney and Kristina. He’s always been extremely protective of Kristina.”

 

 

Just In: Dionne Warwick: A Heart Attack Killed Whitney Houston, I Believe

Dionne Warick has her own theory as to what killed her cousin, Whitney Houston.

“You know, in all honesty, I think she had a heart attack, that’s what I think happened to her,” Dionne tells ET, in an interview airing tonight.

When asked about possible drug use playing a role, she added, ” I don’t know if it’s that or not. I think her heart just gave out.”

Dionne also spoke about the emotional plane ride from California to New Jersey with Whitney’s body on board. “It was a combination of things, stories, laughter, tears. All the emotions that you feel when somebody very near to you passes.”

 

RECAP: Oprah’s Bobbi Kristina Interview…..’I Can Hear Her Voice In Spirit’

In her first interview since Whitney Houston‘s death, daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown says she feels her mother’s presence with her “all the time.”

“She’s always with me,” the 19-year-old told Oprah last night, “Her spirit is strong, it’s a strong spirit. I feel her pass through me all the time. I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, saying, ‘Keep moving, baby. I gotcha.’ Her spirit is strong.”

Pat Houston, Whitney’s manager and sister-in-law, and Gary Houston, Whitney’s brother, were also interviewed.

Bobbi Kristina said she’s “doing as good as I possibly can” and credited her family and God for helping her cope since her mother’s death on Feb. 11.

“It comes in waves. One moment I can be happy and laughing, but then it comes over me. It’s my mom,” she told Oprah.

Bobbi Kristina said the night before her mother’s death, she asked to spend the night with her.

“I slept in her arms all day, all night long,” said Bobbi Kristina.

Pat Houston said in the days before Whitney died, the singer had not been abusing drugs, despite reports that she had been acting erratically. She said an event she attended two days before her death where Whitney looked disheveled was particularly difficult because the legendary performer got into a verbal spat with a former contestant on the “X Factor.” Pat Houston would not name the woman, but Stacy Francis has said that she and Whitney Houston had words that night.

According to Pat Houston, Francis “made herself present everywhere we were,” unnerving Whitney and leading to an argument.

The day of her death had been uneventful, according to her manager. Whitney had lunch in her hotel and was preparing for her mentor Clive Davis’ annual party. Houston was scheduled to tape an infomercial and other interviews that day.

Pat Houston went out to run errands for about a half hour and when she came back, Whitney Houston’s assistant went to check on the singer.

“When I headed down the hallway (to her room), I heard screaming,” she said.

When Pat Houston arrived in the room, she saw the singer’s security guard frantically trying to revive her ahead of the paramedics. He told her: “I tried.”

Pat Houston said the singer had “a peaceful look on her face.” The cause of Houston’s death has not yet been revealed.

The 90-minute television special also touched on the singer’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown, who had a tumultuous marriage with Houston. While some have accused Brown of introducing Houston to drugs, leading to the once pristine singer’s downfall, Pat Houston said that was untrue, and both Pat and Gary Houston had warm words for Brown.

“I loved Bobby Brown. Bobby was a good guy,” said Gary Houston, her older brother. “I don’t know how good they were for each other.”

They also denied that the Houston family had asked Brown to leave her funeral service or didn’t want him to come; Brown showed up briefly but left after a dispute over seating.

“Bobby was supposed to be there,” said Gary Houston.

Pat Houston said Bobby Brown and his daughter have a relationship, but indicated they hadn’t spoken since at least Houston’s funeral.

Bobbi Kristina said she planned to carry on her mother’s legacy and become a singer, as well as act and dance. She expressed frustration over the “negativity” surrounding her mother’s image: “That’s not my mother.”

Instead, she described her as her confidant, a sister, her best friend – “my everything.”

She still spends time in the house she and her mother shared together, and at times said it’s hard to believe she’s not there.

“Sometimes, it’s so surreal. I still walk into the house like, ‘Mom?”‘ she said. “But I’ve accepted it.”

BOBBI KRISTINA: She’s Dropping Her Dad’s Name!

Bobbi Kristina (Twitter)

Whitney Houston‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina wants to shed “Bobbi” from her name, because of its connection to her father Bobby Brown.

Bobbi Kristina has been telling friends she will become “Kristina Houston,” according to TMZ, which also reports that she first pushed to change her name six years ago when her parents separated, but mom Whitney blocked the change.

The root of the 19-year-old’s wrath stems from when her dad left Whitney’s funeral after a disagreement over seating arrangements.

Bobbi Kristina & Nicholas Gordon Caught Kissing In A Target!

JUST IN! Bobbi Kristina Dropping Bobby Brown’s Name!

Whitney Houston‘s daughter Bobbi Kristina was spotted in an Atlanta-area Target store kissing her mother’s unofficial 22-year-old “son” Nicholas Gordon, HollywoodLife is reporting.

According to the report, the pair have been “romantically involved” for “several months.”

Whitney took Nicholas in 10 years ago after she learned that his birth mother couldn’t raise him.  He was “like a son to her,” Whitney’s brother, Michael Houston recently told ABCNews.com.

Bobbi Kristina and Nicholas’ recent PDA-fest took place March 9 at a Target in Johns Creek, Georgia, near their home (they tweeted the photo above from the store). “Bobbi and Nick were in the music section and then all over the store,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com. “Bobbi was kissing him on the mouth and holding hands. They were laughing and smiling and seemed so happy.”

Added the eyewitnesses: “She was wearing a black short pencil bandage skirt with a black top and black knee high boots. Her hair and makeup were all done too, like she was going to go out on the town. He was in all black — black jeans, black shirt, earrings and a black wide-brimmed hat.”

Their relationship has been perplexing: In recent months Bobbi Kristina has referred to Nicholas as her “big brudder” and “other half.”
