Ray J blames himself for Whitney’s death.
She died aged just 48, after accidentally drowning following a drugs overdose back in 2012, two days after a altercation with singer Stacy Francis.
And Ray J has admitted that he blames himself for much of what happened in the showdown between the ladies.
Speaking in the Diary Room on Thursday night’s episode of Celebrity Big Brother, he said: ‘Stacy and I we had a conversation about what happened with Whitney Houston before she passed.
An empathetic Stacy assured him: “No it’s not. I don’t want you to say that.”
“It’s all my fault,” a clearly upset Ray J replied. “All of that that happened. I wasn’t there.”
While they promised to talk more in depth later on, Stacy soon tried to clear up any misconception about her past with both Ray and Whitney in a private chat with Coleen Nolan.
“We were in a club – at a Grammy party – and [Whitney] didn’t understand my relationship with Ray,” Stacy explained. “Even here, we’re cool. He’s a friend and I’ve known his sister and love his sister (Brandy). We’ve known each other since the ’90s.
“We just have a connection. It’s never sexual, never intimate. Whitney didn’t understand that relationship.”
