In the wake of the official autopsy report detailing the cause of Whitney Houston’s death, startling accusations are being aimed at her close friend Ray J. The R&B singer/reality star has been accused of supplying Houston with the drugs that might have contributed to her death last month.
Ray J is responding to strong allegations made last night by Bobby Brown's sister, Leolah Brown, who claimed in a live interview on Headline News that the “Wait a Minute” crooner fed Houston the drugs that led to her demise in the bathtub of a Beverly Hills hotel. In the official coroner’s report, which was released yesterday [March 22], it was revealed that the late R&B singer died from drowning, but heart disease and cocaine use were contributing factors to her death.
In a statement to TMZ, a rep for Ray J says the claims are totally false and that Ray didn't even know Whitney was using again.
Brown alleged in her interview that Ray J and Houston weren't actually in a relationship, and that Ray J was merely a "runner boy" supplying the vocal legend with cocaine and other drugs.
"This is a young boy who is running around telling people that he was a boyfriend of Whitney's, but I know clearly that he wasn't," Brown said, claiming Whitney had previously told her that she had "no relationship" with Ray J.
A rep for Ray J wholeheartedly denies Brown's statements, saying that Ray wasn't even around Houston when she died since he was away in San Diego. Brown had claimed she saw the R&B star walking out of Whitney's hotel hiding his face.
