Whitney’s influence extended not only to friends and fans, but to her partners and child. After her divorce from Bobby Brown in 2007, Whitney Houston was romantically linked to R&B singer Ray J.

A week after Whitney’s death, Ray J comes forward with some touching words for a woman he obviously deeply cared for.

Ray J broke his silence about Whitney’s death: 

“Over the past few days, I’ve tried to process the emptiness that I am experiencing.  What my heart feels cannot be expressed in words.  The world lost an icon, but I lost my close friend.”

Ray J continues, “Nippy, I miss you so much!” Nippy was a nickname Whitney‘s dad gave her.

And Ray J adds, “You were so happy and full of love. Your smile will live in my heart forever.”
