Whitney Houston

Ex-BF Returns to

Death Hotel -- 'It's Weird'

8/1/2012 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0801_ray_j_article_tmz
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.

Uh    

Wow..that story brings a tear to my eye. Tell him TMZ published a picture of the tub (including the water) that she died in. I'm sure TMZ will give him a copy to look at and relive such precious memories.

Good job, Ray J. Keep trying to ride on Whitney's back to extend your 15 minutes. Phony a$$ hat.

He should have had his sister Brandy come alone with him, that way he and she can think of how it feels to get sacrificed by that crazy darn illuminati!
