Whitney Houston

Ex-BF Returns to

Death Hotel -- 'It's Weird'

EXCLUSIVE

For the first time since Whitney Houston's death, her ex-BF Ray J has returned to the hotel where she died back in February ... TMZ has learned.

Ray J -- who was one of the first people to arrive at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on that fateful day -- had avoided returning to the hotel for months because it was "too hard" for him to return to the scene.

But today, Ray J had to overcome his fears to do a scheduled media event at the hotel for his new TV project, "The Rickey Smiley Show" ... an event he couldn't afford to miss.  

Sources close to Ray tell us ... the singer was overcome with emotion when he arrived to the hotel ... telling friends "it hurt inside" to have to relive his most painful memory. He also said it was "very weird" walking the halls again.

Still, Ray J is telling friends ... Whitney wanted him to do well and would be proud of him.

B.S. being spewed by Ray J's camp to promote his next venture. Nothing like using someone's death that you supposedly care very much about to promote yourself. What a loser, call the Jackson boys, they can give you a whole lot of advice. You 'd be just dumb enough to take it too.

Keep it real. He & his folks deliberately staged this so called grief scene. It was his project. He could have chosen any hotel but knew the death hotel drama boo hoo scene would give him some needed press. This is a shameless fake bunch of crap. Shame on RayJay.

Did they even date that long? It doesn't seem like they were desperately in love or anything for him to always act like "poor me" over her.
slimey git.

Watching him get a worthless hummer and pissing on Kim Kardashian was the high point of his career. Go back to your project boy.

Why was Ray J Whitney's boyfriend only when she was in town? IMO what he probably feel is guilt.

Bruce Jenner said the other night on TV he couldn't stand Ray J, does anyone like this D lister? I assume he has a bodyguard so people don't kick his a-s-s?
