Ray J is slamming Star magazine’s report that he’s sitting on a stash of sex tapes of him and Whitney Houston.
“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.
The National Enquirer doesn’t disappoint this week! It claims it has a “Bobby Brown Tell All” — BUT in small typeface underneath the headline, it says “What Bobby Told Best Pal.” And Bobbi Kristina is apparently marrying her mom’s alleged drug dealer!
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 ofStar.
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.”
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.”
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.
