Former boyfriend of Houston revisits scene of her death

Former boyfriend of Houston revisits scene of her death

Whitney Houston's ex-boyfriend has returned to the hotel where she died for the first time since her death.

Singer Ray J paid a visit to the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, California where Whitney passed away in February and revealed it was "very weird" walking the halls again.

Sources close to Ray J told website TMZ.com that he was overcome with emotion when he arrived at the hotel. He told friends "it hurt inside" to have to relive his most painful memory.

Ray J was one of the first people to arrive at the accommodation on the day Whitney was found lifeless in a bathtub after taking a cocktail of drugs.

However, he had avoided returning to the hotel for months because it was "too hard" for him to revisit to the scene.

Yesterday Ray J overcame his fears to do a scheduled media event at the hotel for his new TV project 'The Rickey Smiley Show'.

Ray J is apparently telling friends that Whitney wanted him to do well and would be proud of him for the move.
