Took him long enough.
Nearly a week after Whitney Houston passed away, her "on-again, off-again" boyfriend Ray J has finally decided to speak.
"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. The world lost an icon, but I lost my close friend."
"Nippy, I miss you so much! You were so happy and full of love. Your smile will live in my heart forever."
Thanks for opening up, Ray J! We're sorry for UR loss, but we appreciate the kind words.
