Ray J Breaks Down While Whitney Houston's Casket Is Carried Away

| Filed under: R.I.P.Whitney HoustonSad SadBrandyRay J

This is absolutely gutwrenching.

As Whitney Houston's casket was carried out of the funeral mass for the iconic singer, all while her classic I Will Always Love You played, a clearly distraught Ray J was caught breaking down as he said his last good-bye.

His sister Brandy can be seen rubbing his back in support.

Watch (above).

Poor things.

We can't even begin to imagine how difficult this is on everyone that knew her so personally.

You're all in our thoughts. Stay strong.

    Always room for a commercial for a movie in front of a "Gitwrenchimg" clip of a funeral huh? Ray and everyone else there were putting on the performances of a lifetime. They should submit this whole funeral for next years Oscars.

  2. 2

    I think RJ actually cared for Whittney, and I do not think that was staged or fake it was real emotion.

    everyone knows ray j this little cheap attention whore ;)

    p.s. I meant everybody ;)

    Out of all the celebrities I like Whitney is the one I liked a LOT & it breaks my heart & it makes me SO angry that she is dead I just wished that there was some way to out law drugs & alcolhol. I wish that she would have gotten the help she needed again & she wouldn't have died. It just goes to show you that the weak one's don't, can't or won't make it in the entertainment business. I hope people continue to play her music she will be missed SO very much. I will always love Whitney Houston.

  6. 6

    Yes let's watch something so personal. Why the fuck was this even on tv.?

  7. 7

    I think that if he really truly loved her he would have worked harder at preventing this some how. I have junkies in my family, and while it's true you can't reach them all, sometimes you can… I have a hard time believing that Whitney was unreachable. Every drug user uses for a reason.

  8. 8

    I actually think Ray J. was being sincere.

    Brandy, on the other hand? Her eyes are just as dry as her heart. After you murder a mother of two, admit fault at the crime scene then pretend it never happened, it must be easy to watch your friend's casket being carried away. Ice Queen BITCH.

  9. 9

    I am so mortified reading these comments!How in the world are they aloud on this site that the world sees? A man just lost the love of his life it broke my heart to see that picture of him! But the people that speek ill of him and his family break my heart even more! Those comments shouldnt be aloud any where only well wishes! I hope so much he can find strength in all of this saddness hes a true gentalmen the way he acted and whitney was an amazing woman God bless her!

  10. 10

    I really think a lot of these comments should be reviewed before they can post them, and to say that Ray J didn't love her because he could not persuade her to stop an addiction she had way before he was probably even a teenager is very ignorant. Also the comment about why televise it. You televise it so people who she touched could share in her homegoing just like the fans of Michael Jackson or any other celebrity whose funeral was televised….SMH AT PEOPLE

  11. 11

    So sick of you to post a very private moment all over the frickin internet. Loser.

  12. 12

    Quit pretending to care. You don't care about anyone but yourself and how much you made today. YOU MAKE ME WANT TO PUKE.

  13. 13

    Re: Stophate17 – Don't bad mouth the responders, bad mouth people like Perez who post this shit just to make money (yes, even off the dead). He incites nonsense and he gets paid to do so. Go after him. It's time we quit visiting these sites until they learn a little class and respect. Until we do they will still be here making shit up to make money.

  14. 14

    Poor baby. Definitely send my prayers to all the family and friends. Hard day but also very inspiring.

  15. 15

    Well, nobody ever accused Perez of having any class.

  16. 16

    he should respect her enough to admit they had a romantic relationship.

  17. 17


  18. 18

    disappointed that you had to put a commercial before the video. You bashed Sony for increasing the prices of Witney's CDs. How much money are you making off of this?

  19. 19

    The guy in the red Nicki Minaj outfit was not a Cardinal and this was not a MASS.

  20. 20

    Awesome that HE sat in the front and that scum Bobby Brown was forced to the back and then left out of there before he had to face her mother!

  21. 21

    Re: Stophate17 – So you admire someone like Hilton who pretends to care but who doesn't have the decency, even for once, to remove an ad before the video he calls heartbreaking? The slimeball is overjoyed whenever a big name celebrity dies because it gives him the opportunity to make more money, he has no heart and no conscience. He is hated in his own community. He could care less she died. You're chastising the wrong people, we aren't here for the gossip, we're here to make sure everyone knows what a dirtbag he is. Google it, you'll see.

  22. 22

    well of course he broke down…his only chance at finding a sugar momma has passed…he's a user and his opportunity to sponge off hof her has passed…and I bet he's a little dirty in the whole prescription drug scenario.

  23. 23

    This is the guy who peed on KK and his sister who fled the scene of a serious accident where someone subsequently died? classy. If he's so moved why's he been going around saying they were just friends? They guy's just a creep and so is his dirtbag sister. Whitney was just way to classy for this trash.

  24. 24

    Re: Stophate17 – I don't know of Whitney was "the love of Ray J's life" but I do agree with you on almost everything else you posted. I find it very ironic that people are questioning others sincerity and grief yet lack compassion themselves. People always need to find a reason the spew out hate. Those who attended and didnt show emotion are "heartless",those who did show emotion were "acting".

    I didn't watch the clip because I watched the funeral live and saw Ray J touch the casket when it first happened. I also don't know why Perez felt the need to single out that moment and display the man's grief. I am just glad they didn't do close ups of the family during the service so that their grief wouldn't have been on display as a side show attraction.

  25. 25

    MY GOD!! You people are so brainwashed with this Hollywood crap that you wouldn't know a real moment if it f@#$%^ you up the a@@. I wish I could b!@#$ slap each and every one of you. And you can't save someone who doesn't want to be saved. You think her family didn't try? R.I.P Whitney. Stay strong Ray. J.

  26. 26

    2 things - 1) Ray J knew this was going to be filmed. He knew what he was doing. 2) Did Dolly Parton collect any money for the song? :)

  27. 27

    LMAO!! Hahaha! He's so full of crap! Yeah he really "cares" for her! Hahaha! I bet he banged a disgusting stripper a day after she died. Loser.

  28. 28

    Re: Dawo – everyone also knows ur ugly in ur avatar. stupid

  29. 29

    Re: cndraycott – sweety We dont know how she died, she did not over dose on crack, if anything this was an accident and im sure those that loved her did all they could do over the years.

  30. 30

    Re: suckitracistscum – What does his pass have to do with the love and respect he has for whitney and or the relationship they had? stop looking for negative things please, you seem desperate. You can't tell someone how to react or not react. Who are you? you didnt know her or Ray J so please spare me

  31. 31

    Re: iCeY-336 – here your ignorant dwelling ass go, Who did Brandy MURDER? please go sit down. From what I see and heard Brandys eyes were far from Dry.

    Thats a woman she loved and admired Who are you to tell celebrities how to mourn?

  32. 32

    Re: xcalibur – Who told you all this? Whitney? Ray J? I mean here yall go with the lies, theories and fairy tales. Last time I checked this is Ray J not bobby Brown, how did Ray J enable her? Because she drank alcohol? Sit down and shut up. You speaking on stuff you know absolutely nothing about.

  33. 33

    Re: linwoo – How is he a user? Please explain? how the hell did he use anyone? last time i checked her made his own money and never came off as someone who was using whitney.

  34. 34

    You idiots disgust me, Damned if he do, damned if he don't stop condemning these people, god forbid you all lose someone you love, I pray people aren't as inconsiderate,disrespectful and heartless as you are. Let him grieve, he knew and loved her, way more than anyone in this damn post. Stop acting like You know these celebs personally. I can never recall hearing or seeing anything bad sad or done between whitney and ray J, if anything be brought Joy to her after Bobby. and for that I respect him because he truly showed love and respect for her. Try being respectful, If you ever lost someone, you should know this feeling. it's never easy when someone you knew and loved Leaves you, forever. R I P Whitney we love you.

  35. 35

    Fuck Ray J!! another drug addict piece of ghetto trash!!! bunch of perps the lot of them!
    shithole gangsters who rant some crap into a mic, then call it music and it gets sold to asshole white boyz and little slut whore black dick hungry white girls fukn pigs! oh yeah.. FUCK whitney!! another DRUGGYWOOD loser who everyone 'protected' only to get her money and share her drugs! she was once respectable and then found, like so many idiots, DRUGS, and didnt know how to manage them and maybe enjoy a bit of weed or blow… in little doses… but NO!! this bitch went head over heels for the worst of it, CRACK! now she is like a saint??? she became a PIG! a crack ho, boozer who lost her voice due to her insane abuse… now, her mother had to bury her daughter, and, her daughter is left with another idiot.. bobbie…. what a frickn circus this 'funeral' was! looked more like someone let the flying monkeys from the wizard of oz, loose!! celebrate ?? what?? she KILLED HERSELF!!!! dumb bitch!

  36. 36

    Wow, RnB2012 you're taking this really badly, you okay sweety? Lord, what did I say that wasn't true? He didn't pee on KK for some dollahs? Class act. To be honest, if Whitney wasn't so ill with addiction in her last days I don't think she would have gone anywhere near that trash. She was a goddess, he is trash.

  37. 37

    hey perez… dont worry the punk ass douches who rip on you… eff them! truth hurts them and when someone like you brings that stuff out,they wanna kill you… asshats and fukbags! bet if it was a whitey, they woulndt care 2 shits…. she was nothing for last 15 plus years if not more… screw her! you go perez! print all the shit thats fit to not print!

  38. 38

    Ray J was so "distraught" the night Whitney died that he went to Ne Yo's Grammy party after leaving the hotel. He's a douche.

  39. 39

    People fail to realize that Whitney has been a close friend of the Norwood family for almost 2 decades. She was Brandy's mentor and hero. Regardless of whatever her relationship with Ray J was, Whitney has a long history of friendship with that family. I have no doubt there was real, genuine love there between all of them.

  40. 40

    Yes, I think he is sad because she died tragically and lived tragically…addiction is terrible…however, I do think Ray J was a star F@&#*% and thought he hit pay dirt with this gal…remember, this little guy had a reality show trying to find women…this guy was scratching the bottom of the barrel….sad but true.

  41. 41

    Re: Stophate17 – I completely agree with everything you just said. Do the rest of you have no decency. A women has died, a child has lost her mother, a mother has lost her daughter, and friends have lost someone close to them. None of you know these people just what the media has made them out to be. I think RayJ was truly genuine and upset. Wouldnt you be if you lost someone close to you? But honestly we will never know how all of these people truly felt. But instead of all this nastiness and hate, for godsake be respectful, this is not a time for judgement. Also, addiction is a powerful thing, an illness that is so debilitating that unless you have honestly been through it you will never know. YOU CANNOT HELP SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT WANT TO BE HELPED.

  42. 42

    he looks sincerely broken i did feel my heart snap watching him this is awful noone expected her to just die and he was close to her give him a break u fucking piranas ..

    xx rip whitney , xx perez thanks for caring

  43. 43

    If anyone can watch that and not think, you poor baby… you have no heart. I watched that moment as it happened live and all I could think was there is a man who lost someone he loved more then I think even he realized until it was too late.

    This incredibly gut wrentching personal moment brought to you by SONY!

    Ray J - he was the one who did the sex tape with Kim Kuntdashian right?

  45. 45

    Re: RnB2012 – The sad part is god forbid you depart this earth, judging by your words, I doubt anyone would have anything decent to say about you. We all know her trials, but your not the one judging, Christ himself hold that power, You sin, in fact your entire post is sinful so regardless of what she did in her life, You are NO BETTER. You don't have to do drugs or drink to be a horrible individual, you have your own set of sings and wrongs that will be judged before Christ, I suggest you focus on that and not Whitney or Ray J. God bless you and your ignorance.

  46. 46

    Re: suckitracistscum – Whitney has been close to that family way before a sex tape so take a seat, and how is Ray J trash? Because he dated and slept with Kim Kardashian? A woman I'm sure you could never have. Stop it please… You people bring up negativity for what? This isnt the time to be bringing up peoples past Death has nothing to do with any of it.

  47. 47

    Re: RnB2012 – do u always quote urself or has the grief got too much for u

  48. 48

    Perez just take all these nasty comments down! Why are you allowing such cold heartless things to be said with your name behind it! Stop bashing these poor people they are human and deserve repesect in these hard time! We should be showing them love not hate this is crazy and people wonder why people do things to try and excape from this cold world for a while and them they are judged even more just STOP all this hate what have we become as people how can you guys look at your self your a shame to this world! Think of ray j and ce ce and bobbi kristina and her dad can you imagine if they ever had to see the nasty comments you guys come up with STAND UP AND CHANGE

  49. 49

    Re: Glen – i think its the same guy that pissed on kuntak
    its a shame that sleezy slut has to be attached to whitneys funeral in some way..

    when the casket is taken out is often the hardest part i have myself broken down years ago as a school friends casket was removed its just a moment u feel them gone its a loss so i can understand why he broke at that moment..i think he was legit ..legitimately heart broken

  50. 50

    Re: perez posse member 777 – omg i so agree with u yes

  51. 51

    Re: Stophate17 – You just don't get it. If Hilton removed the posts from the haters, he would have even fewer hits. Hilton doesn't care about anyone about himself and his bank account. This site has become the worst site on the net for gossip, millions have left it because his stories are all late, stolen from other sites. It's only a site now for his own personal gay agenda. Most of his stories are lucky to get 5 comments now, compared to hundreds before. Hilton has no ethics, so don't hold your breath about comments being removed. He's a lonely and unloved douchebag.

  52. 52

    Personally I would like to know the full story of Ray Jay. It was Brandy who was the fan of Whitney and met Whitney when Brandy was first starting out. I think Brandy was around 15 at that time and Ray Jay even younger. A few years later Whitney and Brandy did "Cinderella" together and there Whitney probably got to know Ray Jay. IF Whitney and Ray Jay ended up in a romantic relationship, isn't this the same as Woody Allen? She knew him first when he was a child. If they were just good friends… well… it'd be nice to know. I always felt bad for Brandy watching her little brother become this 'thing' to Whitney yet it was Brandy who was the super fan. Make sense?

  53. 53

    @ FWhitney…… You have anger issues BAD!! Youre an idiot.

  54. 54

    If these people "loved" her they would have gotten her help. #pathetichollywood

  55. 55

    Re: Glen – so you're saying because he has a monster giant big cock meat pole that he can't have feelings?? i don't get it. maybe you've gotsa a mike and ike for a peen!! :-)

  56. 56

    what a fake ass punk he is. i'll still like to ride him though :-)

  57. 57

    Not gonna lie I cried. So sad. :(

  58. 58

    I hate that anyone is dealing with loss like that. Prayers to all of them to help them get thru these hard times.

  59. 59

    I watched that thing off and on and half of the people who were talking I thought seemed so fake. That little attention Ray J did at the end was like the icing on the cake. Most of the people there cared more that they were recognized for being part of the event than gave a good shit about who the dead person was. Right Kevin Costner?

  60. 60

    #9 stophate17 - Does Disney not have a gossip site you can go to?
    Perez Hilton's site is traditionally a hater site. Please save your mortification for people who give a shit.

  61. JM says – reply to this


    It was a Baptist funeral servince not a Catholic one, so it wasn't a "funeral Mass." It'd be nice if someone actually proof read things before they were put on this site. Of late, the reporting here has been horrible.

  62. 62

    Its no ones business how someone mourns! Stay out of it !!! Everyone!

    Pray for Bobbie and her Grandma, and everyone else who loved Whitney!

  63. 63

    l think it was very sincere and it actually tugged on my heart knowing someone was feeling that much pain , how could it not , and on another note l think it is disgusting and a low act to video tape a moment like this and use it on a celebrity gossip site.Just saying tastless

  64. 64

    I'm surprised Kim Kartrashian wasn't there trying to get a photo op out of it. What about Obama? He missed a photo op too.

  65. 65

    Ray j is a damn fake, nothing this punk does is real but fuk kim and try to be booby. This negro was a on and off lover of Whitney's which would suggest when he felt she was available.Go back to your mom's tit, but i forgot you fired her to make your show interesting.

  66. 66

    If you think he was sincere then give him 2-3 months and see don't it show up on his show. Sincerity never has to be displayed again.

  67. 67

    Heart so hurt it makes u want to cry

  68. 68

    Why is he crying? He didn't do much to help her but now if you think about it made her addiction progress more. On her last days she was fighting some girl over him and handed Brandy a note the following day. Whitney's behavior was erratic and he probably crying because he feels guilty. Ray J only used Whitney to stay relevant and paraded her around from club to club. Last time I remember addicts aren't suppose to be in places like clubs where drugs and alcohol are a huge temptation. He's no better than Bobby Brown if you ask me.
