Ray J releases Whitney Houston statement: 'Nippy I miss you'
Now, he's released a statement via KTLA about her passing.
"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.
Ray J Norwood"
