Ray, visibly distraught, attended the event just hours after his good friend, Whitney Houston, had been found unresponsive at a nearby hotel suite.
According to Freshalina:
It was a very bittersweet birthday celebration for Brandy, who was scheduled to perform alongside Monica at Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Gala but was reportedly too emotionally distraught to take the stage.
It was originally reported that Ray J was the person who found Houston unresponsive in her Beverly Hilton Hotel suite yesterday afternoon, however, later reports suggest that it was Houston’s bodyguard “Ray” and not Ray J.
Ray did, however, make his way to Whitney’s suite after hearing the news, but like everyone else, he was turned away by investigators.
