After almost a full week since music icon Whitney Houston died in her hotel bathroom, Ray J is finally breaking his silence about the loss, according to US Magazine.
In a statement, Ray J told US Weekly:
“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,” he tells Us Weekly in a statement. “The world lost an icon, but I lost my close friend.”
The singer also had a special message for the fallen star:
“Nippy, I miss you so much! You were so happy and full of love,” Ray J, 31, says. “Your smile will live in my heart forever.”
