Ray J who was seen, teary-eyed and dressed in a hooded sweatshirt, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last Saturday when the world learned that Whitney had died, has broken his silence. In a statement released to the Associated Press today, he said he’s spent the last few days trying to “process the emptiness that I feel.”

The singer said the world lost an icon but he lost a “close friend.” Calling her by her nickname, he added: “Nippy I miss you so much!”
