Rushed to Whitney's Hotel,

But Turned Away by Cops

2/12/2012 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ray J was home when he got the word Whitney Houston had died last night, but he was turned away by law enforcement at the hotel after he raced over to try and see her
Ray J was home when he got the word Whitney Houston had died last night, but he was turned away by law enforcement at the hotel after he raced over to try and see her ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Ray J tell TMZ he went straight to the Beverly Hilton to try and see Houston as soon as he got the call that she had passed away. He had not been with Houston at all that day or the night before.

We're told when he arrived, law enforcement turned him away just as they did Bobbi Kristina. Ray J can be seen in the photo above, moments after, outside Whitney's room on the 4th floor.

According to our sources, Ray J is "crushed" by Whitney's passing.

I had the pleasure of meeting Whitney at the White House many years ago. She was dressed in all white and this image reminded me of her beauty and dignity. She was there because she believed in the youth of our nation. As a youth leader in the community, Whitney inspired us to teach the children the importance of education. .We will always love her!

My prayers go out to Ray J.in his time of loss. Unfortunately every scene is a crime scene & they cannot let people in until the investigation is completed.

Ray J and all these others who "rushed over" after she was found dead, so CONCERNED about her. Where was their CONCERN when she was alive and they enabled or condoned her taking all the prescription drugs and mixing them with alcohol? I find it hard to believe NO ONE KNEW. It's just s*** like him think it's "cool" to take these risks. We are seeing more and more lately with the deaths of these wonderful, talented artists, someone has to step in and say "COOL also means NOT SO HOT, so STOP KILLING YOURSELF a little bit more every day". People don't realize that these famous artists are actually lonely and feel they have no one to confide in or rely on because all their so called friends are too busy "kissing their asses", afraid that they will loose all the perks associated with being "in good" with the star. This death like so many of the recent ones of young wonderful well-known people should have NEVER HAPPENED. Why isn't that pharmacy out of business anyway for it's role in supplying the medications that killed MICHAEL JACKSON and ANNA NICOLE SMITH?

The ***** is lucky he didn't get capped by a cop. What the hell do you think is going through the cops minds when they see any uppity black guy driving expensive cars going to a see a celeb? You know they're thinking drug dealer and in most instances they would be right. So better to err on the side of caution and for celebs to realize real and responsible peeps don't give a cr*p who they are.

Ray J just lost his weekly paycheck when she passed. Bet he is like her ex husband an enabler to Whitney. She should have not let these 2 into her life. She would still be alive today, maybe.
