Whitney Houston

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.

RayJ was nothing to Whitney but a friend. He got to take the big star to dinner and visit her, due to Brandy.
Not ever have we heard her speak of RayJ. In all the yrs Whitney was alive when asked about her boyfriends she always owned up to it, but never him because he was never more than friend. There were kisses for publicity-for him she didn't need it. he is the one who tryed to make something out of it or more out of it.
This **** needs to go away.
