Singer Ray J was reportedly hospitalized following the 2012 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. Did the pressure of being harassed by Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law take its toll on him?
According to a report from TMZ, that’s exactly what he and sources close to him claim happened. When a friend went to his hotel room following the Billboard Awards, the singer was despondent and couldn’t get out of bed.
Transported immediately to a local hospital via ambulance, he was treated for severe dehydration and exhaustion. It seems prior to the Billboard Music Awards, the singer made a whirlwind trip to China in back in 32 hours. He then drove four hours to Las Vegas to see Bobbi Kristina Brown receive a posthumous award on her late mother’s behalf.
It was while awaiting the start of the 2012 Billboard Music Awards that Pat Houston, Whitney’s former manager and sister-in-law, raised a big stink about Ray J sitting next to Whitney Houston’s family. He refused to move and security eventually convinced Pat Houston to stop making a scene.
Pat Houston and other members of Whitney Houston’s family believe he played a role in Whitney’s death, but keeping her well supplied with drugs. He denies that claim, maintaining Whitney was a very dear friend whom he loved.
Ray J is reportedly still in the hospital. Do you think his ‘crash and burn’ following the 2012 Billboard Music Awards was brought on from sheer emotion or from the clash with Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law?
