Ray J Denies Bobby Brown’s Sister Claims That He Gave Whitney Houston Cocaine
Rucuss staffMarch 23, 2012
Bobby Brown’s sister Leolah Brown made some explosive allegations against Ray J and he’s not happy about it.
It didn’t take Ray J long to deny claims made by Brown’s sister on HLN’s Dr. Drew Show that he allegedly provided Whitney Houston with the drugs that contributed to her death on Feb. 11. Ray J said Leolah’s interview was “rife with false statements.”
Ray J’s attorney issued a statement to E! News:
“Though Leolah Brown was nowhere near the Beverly Hilton hotel on the day Whitney Houston died, [HLN’s parent company] CNN proceeded to broadcast an interview with Ms. Brown in which she falsely claimed that Ray J was at the hotel and contributed to Whitney Houston’s death.
“Even the most minimal inquiry with anyone actually in contact with Whitney would reveal that Leolah Brown had been out of contact with Whitney for more than a year and was nowhere near the scene on the day of her death.”
Leolah sat down with Dr. Drew after toxicology reports revealed that Whitney Houston’s cause of death was accidental drowning and the combined effects of heart disease and cocaine use. Leolah told Dr. Drew that she saw Ray J make a quick getaway from the hotel room after Houston’s death.
“Why is he hiding his face? He’s always trying to show his face when he’s with Whitney. Why now? Why you trying to hide, Ray J?” she asked.
Leolah said Whitney told her that she never had a relationship with Brandy Norwood’s brother, despite rumors that they were in a relationship. Bobby Brown’s sister revealed that Ray J was just a ‘runner boy’ for Whitney. She claims he was the person who allegedly got drugs for the pop legend.
“Whitney laughed when I asked were her and Ray J in a relationship,” Leolah said. “Whitney told me Ray J was her runner boy. Ray J is using Whitney Houston’s name.”
Ray J’s lawyer has urged media outlets “not to republish these defamatory stories” and warned of legal action should they proceed to do so without verifying the truth.
