During her appearance on Access Hollywood, Brandy revealed that her brother Ray J is still trying to cope with the death of Whitney Houston. As the R&B singer and actress explained, Ray is specifically having trouble dealing with all the rumors about his relationship with Whitney and whether or not he sent her down a path towards untimely death.
“It’s been really tough on him, just trying to get through it,” the singer and actress (on “Drop Dead Diva”) told Access Hollywood Live’s Kit
Hoover and guest co-host Arsenio Hall on Thursday.
“They were really, really good friends and some of the things that people have said about him, [have] really hurt him,” Brandy continued. “Being the kind person that he is, the good guy that he, it’s just been tough for him to get through some of the things that have been going on.”
Brandy explained that they’ve been helping Ray J with his grief by giving him a great amount of family support.
“We all come together as family. Family always makes you feel better and [gives you] a sense of comfort, so we’ve all been sticking together through this tough time for him, for me, for everyone around us that have been going through the same thing,” she continued.
As for Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, Brandy said, “I’ve definitely expressed that to Bobbi Kris, and, you know, everything, just telling her that I’m here for her whenever she needs me.”
