Ray J has entered the Amber Rose vs. Kardashians war after Rose referenced his infamous tape with Kim Kardashian.

The singer took to Instagram and posted the famous moment in The Godfather Part III when Michael Corleone declares: “Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in!”

Few days ago, Amber Rose slammed the Kardashian family in an interview, calling Kim “fake” and saying Tyga should be ashamed for dating “baby” Kylie Jenner, who is 17 years old.Amber Rose and Ray J

Khloe Kardashian then attacked Amber Rose, telling her to “stop talking” about the family and pointing out that Rose was a stripper when she was 15.

Amber Rose fired back, claiming she was just trying to support her family, much as Kim Kardashian did when she and Ray J made their famous tape.

On February 20, Kanye West reignited the war of words with a Power 105 “Breakfast Club” sit-down, during which he joked about Amber Rose: “If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, there wouldn’t be an Amber Rose, you know what I’m saying?”

Kanye West then called Amber Rose dirty, declaring: “It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that’s with Amber Rose. I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.”

He is scheduled to return to court for a preliminary hearing August 28.

The singer was arrested on May 30 after a woman claimed he grabed her behind at a bar at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

Police say Ray J refused to leave the bar when they arrived, became unruly and used his feet to shatter a patrol car window after being taken into custody.

Ray J is the former boyfriend of late Whitney Houston and the younger brother of singer-actress Brandy Norwood and had a brief singing career and starred with his sister in a reality show based on their family life.

Lamar Odom was reportedly shocked by Ray J’s new single I Hit It First, which describes the rapper’s relationship with Kim Kardashian.

Lamar Odom, Kim Kardashian’s brother-un-law, was disgusted when he heard Ray J’s new song, HollywoodLife.com reported.

“His reaction was that he thought, <<It is totally f**ked up!>>” a source close to Khloe Kardashian’s husband told the website.

“He saw it and thought it was in bad taste.”

Ray J’s I Hit It First references  to the rapper and Kim Kardashian’s 2007 tape and includes lines like: “I had her head going North and her ass going South/But now baby chose to go West.”

However, Lamar Odom isn’t going to let a petty publicity grab by Ray J blossom into a full-blown feud as the NBA player is just focusing on his game.

It appears that Kim Kardashian’s beau Kanye West had a similar reaction of initial anger followed by the realization that Ray J doesn’t deserve the time of day.

”Kanye doesn’t condone broke ass, jealous [guys] who be trying to bite off he and Kim’s fame just to stay, wait, just to become relevant,” another source told the website.

Kanye West also described Ray J’s attention-hungry song “sad,” according to the same source.

Ray J describes his relationship with Kim Kardashian in his new single I Hit It First and even features a blurred out picture of the reality star on the cover.

In leaked lyrics of the song, due out on April 9, Ray J, 32, clearly references his videotape with Kim Kardashian, 32, that catapulted her to stardom after its release in 2007.

Ray J also makes mention of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian’s fiancé and father of the pregnant star’s unborn child, as well as her ex-husband Kris Humphries and ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush.

“She might move on to rappers and ballplayers, but we all know I hit it first,

“I had her head going North and her ass going South, but now baby chose to go West,” say the lyrics, according to TMZ.

“No matter where she goes or who she knows, she still belongs in my bed,” Ray J concludes.

Ray J and Kim Kardashian dated for five years before breaking up in 2007.

This isn’t the first time the rapper has publicly claimed responsibility for Kim Kardashian’s fame.

In 2012, Ray J caused a stir when he retweeted Kim Kardashian, adding a “lol”.

“Lol RT @KimKardashian: Keep your life in a positive perspective. We are not defined by our pasts.”

Ray J later explained his tweet in an interview with hip hop radio station Power 106: “I felt like it was real, what [Kim Kardashian tweeted].”

“I kinda laughed about it, ’cause it was 100.”

The rapper then went on to address Kim Kardashian’s relationship with Kanye West, stating: “I wish ’em the best. Life is a roller-coaster, so you never know what’s gonna happen.”

“But I wish ’em the best, much success to both of ’em. Yo, this whole thing is like a Magic Mountain experience.”

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian, who has so far remained mum about Ray J’s new single, rather chose to assert her new status as mother-to-be with a Twitter picture of her pregnant belly on Saturday.

Nick Cannon has revealed that he dumped Kim Kardashian after she “lied” to him about the existence of her now-infamous sex tape.

Despite calling Kim Kardashian “one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet”, Nick Cannon explained that he couldn’t forgive her for denying the tape existed.

Nick Cannon, now happily married to Mariah Carey, briefly dated Kim Kardashian from September 2006 to January 2007.

Speaking on The Howard Stern Show last week he explained: “This was my issue. We talked about this tape…And she told me there was no tape.

“If she might have been honest with me I might have tried to hold her down and be like <<That was before me>> because she is a great girl.

“She’s actually one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape?”

Kim Kardashian made the tape while with then-boyfriend Ray J in 2003. Its release brought her to a wide audience and directly led to her now-lucrative reality star career.

Nick Cannon revealed that he had always suspected that Kim Kardashian might have had something to do with the tape’s release.

“And I still think she might have even had a part to play with [its release],” he said.

It seems unlikely Kim Kardashian will be too concerned about losing out with Nick Cannon, however.

Since their breakup she has gone on to become one of America’s biggest stars, despite her lack of talent.

Nick Cannon seems to appreciate this, adding: “I think she’s a great businesswoman if you ask me.”

Kim Kardashian is now happily dating rapper Kanye West.

He certainly doesn’t seem put off by her tape – in fact The Stronger rapper appears to make reference to the reality star’s infamous 2007 tape in his track Clique.

The song – which will feature on his album Cruel Summer – includes the line: “Eat breakfast at Gucci. My girl a superstar all from a home movie.”

Kim Kardashian’s other ex-boyfriends include Gabriel Aubry and Nick Lachey. She is currently locked in a messy divorce with second husband Kris Humphries, after a brief and disastrous marriage.

Her rise to fame saw her introduced her to Hollywood’s socialite scene by her then close friend Paris Hilton.

Paris Hilton soon came to regret the move, as she was overshadowed by Kim Kardashian  when her sex tape was leaked, with pornography company Vivid buying the rights to the video for $1 million.

It was particularly galling for Paris Hilton, as a similar film featuring her had been leaked in 2003, briefly making her one of the world’s most notorious celebrities.

While Kim Kardashian has always claimed she was “devastated” by the release of the tape, it certainly made her a star.

It has even been alleged her mother Kris Jenner brokered the deal, with Kim Kardashian receiving a hefty advance worth between $250,000 and $500,000.

Kim Kardashian filmed the sex tape when she was 23, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered eight months after its release.

Back in June reports emerged that Kris Jenner had allegedly instructed Kim to make the video and even had her re-shoot it because the first take wasn’t “pretty enough”.

Kim Kardashian’s younger sister Khloe was infuriated by the claims and said: “That is just disgusting and disturbing, and probably HIS fantasy!”

Kim Kardashian fled from a Miami restaurant to avoid an embarrassing encounter with her former sex tape partner Ray J.

Kim Kardashian, 31, left the Prime 112 restaurant in Miami by a side entrance just as Ray J was entering to join boxer Floyd Mayweather and friends.

Sources said Ray J was not aware that Kim Kardashian was at the Prime 112 restaurant on Sunday where she was having a meal with her family.

A sex tape shot with Ray J nine years ago helped launch Kim Kardashian’s career.

The curvy beauty has since said she was ashamed of the tape but rumors persist her mother Kris Jenner was behind the leaking of the tape in 2007 to boost her fledgling career.

Kim Kardashian, her parents and sisters Khloe and Kourtney have been in Miami, Florida, all week filming for their reality show.

They were at the steak restaurant to mark the nine year anniversary of Robert Kardashian’s death.

Kim Kardashian tweeted where she was having dinner leading to a swarm of paparazzi photographers to turn up outside the eatery.

After learning Ray J was also headed to the restaurant a source told the New York Post Kim Kardashian fled out of a side entrance.

A source said: “Kim and Kris Jenner posed for pictures in front of the restaurant to allow Kourtney and son Mason to sneak out of a side entrance unnoticed.

“And just by a few moments, Kim missed Ray J, who was seen entering the restaurant to meet a large group of friends including boxer Floyd Mayweather.”

In 2007, Kim Kardashian was catapulted to stardom following the release of her tape with rapper Ray J.

Now reports have emerged that it was allegedly Kim Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner saw to it that her daughter would cash in on it.

A source has claimed that “momager” Kris Jenner, 56, helped to set up the sale of the video which led to 31-year-old Kim Kardashian’s fame.

The insider allegedly claimed to Star Magazine via Radar Online: “Kris was totally involved in arranging the sale of Kim’s tape.

“The video already existed, and Kris was there every step of the way as a middleman brought in to market it to an adult entertainment company.”

The source also alleged that Kris Jenner was delighted when she found out the tape, released by adult company Vivid Entertainment, was titled Kim Kardashian, Superstar.

The insider claimed: “That must have thrilled Kris since you could hardly call Kim a household name at that point in time.”

And they added that Kris Jenner allegedly received a hefty pay out for the sale of the video.

The source claimed: “I saw Kris Jenner’s signature on the contract; I believe she got somewhere between $250,000 and $500,000 for the original deal with the middleman.”

Kim Kardashian had filmed the tape three years earlier when she was 23, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered eight months after its release.

And the source alleged to the publication that it was all part of the plan for Kris Jenner.

They claimed: “Everything she does in this world, every decision she makes on her daughters’ behalf, is based on greed and publicity. And has nothing to do with her family’s stability or happiness.”

Star Magazine claims that the source passed a polygraph test while making the allegations.

Back in June reports emerged that Kris Jenner had allegedly instructed Kim Kardashian to make the video even had her re-shoot it because the first take wasn’t “pretty enough”.

Kim Kardashian’s younger sister Khloe was infuriated by the claims and said: “That is just disgusting and disturbing, and probably HIS fantasy!”

Ray J is reportedly still struggling to come to terms with Whitney Houston’s death.

Ray J, who dated Whitney Houston on-off until her tragic death in February, is finding it “tough” because as well as missing her, he has been subjected to a lot of cruel comments.

His sister, singer Brandy Norwood, said: “It’s been really tough on him, just trying to get through it.

“They were really, really good friends and some of the things that people have said about him, [have] really hurt him. Being the kind person that he is, the good guy that he, it’s just been tough for him to get through some of the things that have been going on.”

Brandy says all the family have been supporting Ray J to get him through it all as well as offering to help Whitney Houston’s 19-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.

She told Access Hollywood: “We all come together as family. Family always makes you feel better and [gives you] a sense of comfort, so we’ve all been sticking together through this tough time for him, for me, for everyone around us that have been going through the same thing.”

“I’ve definitely expressed that to Bobbi Kris, and, you know, everything, just telling her that I’m here for her whenever she needs me.”

Whitney Houston was found dead in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills hotel room in February after suffering a huge heart attack partly brought on by her cocaine abuse.

Ray J is being sued for some expensive items that mysteriously disappeared from room 434 at the Beverly Hilton, where Whitney Houston died on February this year.

In recently filed legal docs, L.A. Stylist Marc Littlejohn claims he was hired to do Ray J’s wardrobe styling on February 10 for a Grammy related event.

Marc Littlejohn alleges all the duds he let the singer borrow were left in Whitney Houston’s room.

Now Marc Littlejohn is suing Ray J for $2,880 – the cost of the missing clothes – insisting he has reached out to both the singer and his mother/manager repeatedly to get some cash or the threads.

Ray J has been hospitalized seeking treatment for “exhaustion and jet lag” after Billboard Music Awards.

Ray J, 31, is also believed to have had a run-in with Whitney Houston’s family at the Billboard Awards on Sunday night which may have thrown him off course.

The singer and producer, who was dating Whitney Houston in the months before her death, was reportedly left “extremely upset” following a confrontation with Pat Houston.

Despite remaining for the star-studded event – and later hosting a party with Sophie Monk – it was the following morning that he was found.

TMZ report that someone ventured into Ray J’s hotel room on Monday morning and discovered he was “out of it” and couldn’t get out of bed.

He was said to have been “extremely disoriented” before whisked away by ambulance.

However, Ray J’s publicist is blaming the medical attention on the fact he’s been lacking a few nights of 40 winks recently.

The statement said: “Ray J has been in a Las Vegas area hospital since the early morning of Monday and will remain there for treatment for exhaustion and jet lag.

“Ray J was in Las Vegas hosting a launch party (with Sophie) for the product he is endorsing, Prince Reigns Hair Serum, and to attend the Billboard Music Awards.

“Ray J had just returned to the US from a quick 32-hour round trip from China where he performed a concert and had meetings regarding a new business.

“Upon landing, he immediately drove four hours to Las Vegas for the two events.”

Ray J has not tweeted since last Friday, when he told fans: “I’m in the Las Vegas of HongKong (sic).”

Bobbi Kristina Brown last night delivered a touching tribute to Whitney Houston at the Billboard Music Awards 2012.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, accepted the special Millennium Award on behalf of her late mother, after she was escorted onto the stage by her adopted brother Nick Gordon and received a quick kiss from him.

Whitney Houston’s daughter had been reduced to tears while watching an emotional video dedicated to the singer.

But Bobbi Kristina was well-spoken and composed when it came to delivering her poignant speech, with Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law and manager Pat Houston by her side, who also gave an introduction.

Bobbi Kristina Brown said: “I just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Not just from when it was good, but when it was bad too.

“Thank you so much for showing that much love, because she deserved it. She did. I’m just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman’s life.”

The teenager added: “There will never be another one ever, and I thank you, all of you – the fans, everyone. Thank you so much.”

During the speech, the camera cut to Brandy, the sister of Whitney Houston’s former partner Ray J.

Brandy could be seen mouthing the words “never ever” while Bobbi Kristina spoke about her mother’s uniqueness.

There were also tributes to Whitney Houston, who died aged 48 on February 11, in the form of performances.

After an introduction by Whoopi Goldberg, John Legend sang Greatest Love of All while Jordin Sparks delivered an emotional rendition of I Will Always Love You.

During Jordin Sparks’ performance, cameras followed Bobbi Kristina Brown who was seen sobbing at the tribute.

One of the more bizarre anecdotes about Whitney Houston’s life is recounted by Karrine Steffans, a former girlfriend of singer’s ex-husband Bobby Brown.

Karrine Steffans describes a confrontation between Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s toy boy beau Ray J back in 2006.

In a Vanity Fair article, entitled The Devils in the Diva, Karrine Steffans recalls a phone call from Ray J following Whitney Houston’s split with Bobby Brown.

“He said, <<Is Bob (Bobby Brown) still staying with you?>>” remembers Karrine Steffans.

“I said, <<Yeah, he’s right here>>. And Ray said, <<Tell him I f***ed both of his chicks, you and now his wife>>.”

Echoing Bobby Brown’s interview with The Today Show this week where he denied introducing Whitney Houston to drugs, Karrine Steffans says: “Bob’s big thing was everyone blamed him for her downfall, but when he met her she was already using drugs.

“He always felt very angry about that. He told me, <<What everybody saw wasn’t the real Whitney>>. He always said her private persona – which you saw on [reality show] Being Bobby Brown – was who she really was.”

Being Bobby Brown aired on U.S. network Bravo back in 2005 and documented Whitney Houston’s marriage to the singer, which ended in divorce in 2007.

Ray J was regularly seen with Whitney Houston the week before she died, with the last photograph of the star taken two days prior to her death.

Whitney Houston’s premature death at 48 in Beverly Hilton Hotel triggered a slew of media speculation and rumors about her alleged drug use and troubled personal relationships.

Now, a Vanity Fair article has shed new light on Whitney Houston’s personal life and last days in Los Angeles, three months after she was found drowned in a hotel bathtub.

One of the more bizarre anecdotes is recounted byKarrine Steffans,  a former girlfriend of Whitney Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown, in which she describes a confrontation between the New Edition star and the singer’s toy boy beau Ray J back in 2006.

In the Vanity Fair article, entitled The Devils in the Diva, Karrine Steffans recalls a phone call from Ray J following Whitney Houston’s split with Bobby Brown.

“He said, <<Is Bob (Bobby Brown) still staying with you?>>” remembers Karrine Steffans.

Being Bobby Brown aired on U.S. network Bravo back in 2005 and documented Whitney Houston’s marriage to the singer, which ended in divorce in 2007.

Ray J was regularly seen with Whitney Houston the week before she died, with the last photograph of the star taken two days prior to her death.

Those pictures of Whitney Houston showed her looking sweaty and disheveled as she emerged from the Thru nightclub in Hollywood with a small entourage.

Her hairdresser Tiffanie Dixon remembers that night, telling Vanity Fair that Whitney Houston returned to the hotel where they both read the Bible together. “Her glasses were broken but she read by holding the little single lens,” she says.

On the day she died, Whitney Houston breakfasted with three strangers – men she had encountered the day before.

One of the men told the magazine: “Whitney came walking by, either coming from or into the spa, in black sweats, grey sweater and a cap and sunglasses. She smelled of alcohol.

“She sat with us for ten minutes, had a bowl of fruit, gave us a hug and left.”

Hoping for a comeback, the publication also claims that Whitney Houston had been planning on having a face lift.

However, the Beverly Hills plastic surgeon engaged to perform the surgery is reported to have refused after the star “failed the routine physical which indicates the condition of the patient’s heart, liver and lungs”.

The magazine article also discusses the rumors circulating about Whitney Houston’s sexuality and the nature of the singer’s friendship with her former creative director, Robyn Crawford.

Contributing editor Mark Seal says a package he sent Robyn Crawford in the hope of speaking with her was returned with “Refused by R. Crawford; does not want” written across the front.

Both Whitney Houston and Robyn Crawford have always denied rumors of a gay relationship.

An autopsy report into Whitney Houston’s death showed her death was an accident, but that she suffered from heart disease and had cocaine, marijuana, as well as other prescription medicines in her system.

 

The death of Whitney Houston hasn’t diminished the marketing value of her ex-boyfriend Ray J as he just inked a major deal – to fight the war on ingrown hairs.

Ray J is officially the new face of Prince Reigns shaving serum and, according to the singer’s rep, the deal is worth up to $1 million though the rep wouldn’t divulge the exact terms of the contract.

A rep for the company told TMZ that Sophie Monk signed a similar deal.

Ray J’s former sex tape partner Kim Kardashian has also dabbled in the body hair removal business inking a deal of her own with the TRIA laser hair removal system a few years ago.

Ray J lashed out today at claims by Leolah Brown, Bobby Brown’ sister, made on HLN’s Dr. Drew show that he may have provided Whitney Houston with the drugs that contributed to her tragic death, saying her interview was “rife with false statements”.

“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,” Ray J’s attorney said in a statement released to E! News last night.

The statement continued: “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.”

What ticked off Brandy’s little brother was the fact that Leolah Brown told Dr. Drew Pinksy that she witnessed Ray J (real name William Ray Norwood Jr.) leaving Whitney Houston’s hotel room “hiding his head” on the day she died.

“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?” Leolah Brown asked.

Leolah Brown then accused Ray J, who was rumored to be casually dating Whitney Houston, of being a “runner boy” for the music legend because he “knows somebody that sells drugs” and bought and supplied them to her.

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.

Whitney Houston’s official cause of death, released yesterday by the Los Angeles County Coroner, reveals that she died as the result of accidental drowning and the combined effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine. The drug, however, was never found in her hotel room when investigators conducted their probe.

In a shocking interview on HLN’s Dr. Drew’s show last night, Leolah Brown, Bobby Brown’ sister, blamed Ray J and Pat Houston for Whitney Houston’s death.

Leolah Brown decided to go on Dr. Drew’s show last night to discuss the Los Angeles coroner’s toxicology report on her former sister-in-law, Whitney Houston.

She made striking claims that Ray-J was Whitney Houston’s “runner boy” for cocaine. Leolah Brown also said she found it suspicious that she saw Ray-J leaving Whitney Houston’s hotel and hiding after her death, when he has never seemed to hide when cameras were around them before.

Bobby Brown’ sister also said she finds it hard to believe Pat Houston, Whitney Houston’ sister-in-law and manager, didn’t know the singer was doing cocaine that day. And as for Leolah Brown’s first thought when she heard the news of Whitney Houston’s death: “Somebody gave her a bad bag!”

Ray-J has put out a statement after this interview saying he was unaware Whitney Houston was using cocaine and he slammed Leolah Brown’s claims. He said he wasn’t even around the day Whitney Houston died as he was in San Diego.

Later in the interview, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s cousins, Jerod Brown & Kelsey Brown, divulged more details about what they felt were odd happenings the day of Whitney Houston’s death.

Jerod Brown said “that guy Nick [Gordon]” came into the hospital soon after they got there to check on Bobbi Kristina during her panic attack and said: “Thanks for coming out.” As if they weren’t supposed to be there.

The cousins also said Gary Houston paid no mind to Bobbi Kristina Brown once she collapsed on the hotel room floor right in front of him. Gary Houston “kept rolling the luggage from the room right past her.”

They also talked about Whitney Houston’s off shore accounts and why Leolah Brown “believes” she has legal guardianship of Bobbi Kristina Brown. .

However, Bobby Brown’s reps have been extra mum on talking about any specifics or any rumors concerning Whitney Houston’s death. They have only put out their own general statements on behalf of Bobby Brown. So there is a chance Bobby Brown knew nothing about this Dr. Drew interview and/or didn’t co-sign it.

Ray J, Whitney Houston’s boyfriend, is reportedly seeking counseling to help him cope with the singer’s recent death.

Ray J, 31, is heartbroken after Whitney Houston, 48, died last month and his sister Brandy has urged him to seek professional help to manage his grief.

A source told RadarOnline.com: ”Ray J is obviously absolutely devastated by the loss of Whitney, who he says was the love of his life. Even though a month has passed since she died, Ray still can’t believe that Whitney is gone. He has saved voicemail messages on his cell phone from her that he has been listening to. His sister Brandy has urged him to go to counseling to deal with this loss, and he has finally agreed.

”Brandy and her brother are extremely close, and she has been a rock for him in the weeks since Whitney died. However, Brandy is also dealing with a huge loss, as she worked with Whitney professionally, and loved her like an older sister. Brandy recognizes that she can only help her brother so much. Ray has promised Brandy he will see someone.”

Ray J has also told friends he is so upset by Whitney’s death that he can’t even listen to her music anymore.

The source added: ”Ray has told his family he doesn’t know if he will ever be able to listen to Whitney’s version of <<I Will Always Love You>> ever again. He is surrounded by his family and just trying to get through the pain. What people don’t realize is how much Ray loves Whitney, he never refers to her in the past tense. He just doesn’t know what to do with the huge void in his life.”

Stacy Francis offered more details about her recent night club spat with Whitney Houston, a squabble that happened just two days before the singer’s death.

In an interview with “Extra,” the former X Factor contestant talked about the February 9 tussle.

Stacy Francis explains that “there was an exchange, but it wasn’t a violent exchange…She didn’t push me in the head…If it were not Whitney Houston, it could have been very bad.”

She adds more color to the event, saying: “I looked at her and she moved my face away.”

Radar Online has previously reported that Whitney Houston and Stacy Francis got into it at Hollywood’s Tru Nightclub. It appears that the cause of the ruckus was when Stacy Francis was talking to Whitney Houston’s sometimes boyfriend Ray J. But for that, Stacy Francis explained that they’re just family friends.

“It was a misunderstanding. We went back and forth for a little while, but all I kept saying to her is that <<I love you very much and I respect you so much>>. I’ve known [Ray J’s] family for a long time. Ray is honestly like a brother to me,” Stacy Francis said.

R&B singer and Ray J’ sister Brandy dedicated a heartfelt performance to Whitney Houston during a concert last week in Los Angeles.

Ever since Whitney Houston and Brandy co-starred together in the 1997 TV movie Cinderella, the R&B singer has looked up to Whitney.

In her first performance since Whitney Houston passed away last month, Brandy, 33, sang her 2008 hit Right Here (Departed) and dedicated it to the late singer during a set at The Factory nightclub.

Before she sang the song, Brandy said: “If she was here with us now in the physical, this is what I would tell her.”

Brandy went on to wow the crowd with her emotional performance, although bowed out of singing any of Whitney Houston’s songs.

“I heard there was a rumor that I was doing a Whitney Houston tribute tonight – unfortunately that’s not true, because I would be an emotional wreck right now,” Brandy told the crowd.

“I’m just not ready to sing any of her songs. You guys know what that’s like.”

Ray J’s relationship with reality star Kim Kardashian was thrust into the spotlight when their sex tape was leaked back in 2007, catapulting her to fame.

Ray J’s romance with Kim Kardashian is again making headlines, with the R&B singer alleging that the reality star may have cheated on her first husband Damon Thomas with him.

According to The New York Post, Ray J, 31, refers to a woman he dated for two years as “KK” in his new book “Death Of The Cheating Man: What Every Woman Must Know About Men Who Stray”.

In addition to the matching initials, the time frame given for this relationship with Kim Kardashian is also the same.

Kim Kardashian, 31, who was spotted out looking at locations for a new DASH clothing store in West Hollywood earlier this week, was married to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004.

The reality star is said to have made the sex tape with Ray J back in 2003 before it was leaked in 2007.

Life & Style say that Ray J claims: “KK pursued and slept with him while she was still married to her first husband”.

“To be honest, the whole thing started off wrong,” wrote Ray J, who was last romantically linked to Whitney Houston before her death.

“We’d known each other for a while before we dated and there was a mutual attraction, but she was married.

“She let me know she wanted to get with me. She left her husband for me as soon as we started having sex and things between us got intense really fast. After that, I felt obligated to be with her.”

Kim Kardashian, currently in the midst of a divorce from second husband Kris Humphries, has previously denied cheating on Damon Thomas.

Ray J also goes onto reveal details about the intimate side of their relationship.

“We were like animals; sexually free to try anything, and we did,” Ray J writes in the book.

“For years KK and I had a great sex life. There was more to our relationship, but the majority of it was about our wild and extreme sexual chemistry.

“She was a straight freak who was down to do whatever, whenever and that seriously hypnotized me.”

Ray J also documents Kim Kardashian’s attentiveness towards him, describing how she would greet him with hot towels and toothpaste on his toothbrush in the morning.

However, Ray J, who alleges that they both cheated on the other during the course of their relationship, claims that Kim Kardashian ended up being a little too attentive towards him, wanting to know his whereabouts “at all times”.

Ray J adds: “She literally thought I was cheating with every girl I ran across.”

Kim Kardashian has yet to comment on her ex boyfriend’s allegations, but a source told Life & Style that she is “furious about Ray J cashing in on her”.

The insider added: “There’s so much that has gone wrong for her this year – he’s just another person trying to humiliate her.”
