[photogallerylink id=56429 align=left]Whitney Houston’s death has led to darker days for many of her loved ones. One of them being her boyfriend and record producer, Ray J. His older sister, Brandy, has been urging him to seek help in order to come to terms with the passing of the love of his life.
RadarOnline has reported that according to a close source to the situation:
“Ray J is obviously absolutely devastated by the loss of Whitney, who he says was the love of his life. Even though a month has passed since she died, Ray still can’t believe that Whitney is gone. He has saved voice mail messages on his cell phone from her that he has been listening to. His sister Brandy has urged him to go to counseling to deal with this loss, and he has finally agreed.”
The source continues commenting on Brandy’s position in the situation:
“Ray is just numb and he needs to be able to start to deal with these feelings. Brandy and her brother are extremely close, and she has been a rock for him in the weeks since Whitney died. However, Brandy is also dealing with a huge loss, as she worked with Whitney professionally, and loved her like an older sister. Brandy recognizes that she can only help her brother so much. Ray has promised Brandy he will see someone, however, knowing how take charge Brandy is, she will probably find a mental health professional and make the arrangements for him.”
Everyone witnessed a tiny glance of Ray J’s heartbreak when he emotionally touched Whitney Houston’s casket as it was being carried out of the church. After that moment, while he was in the pew he broke down in tears, being comforted by his older sister Brandy.
The source continued speaking about the distressed Ray J saying:
“Ray has told his family he doesn’t know if he will ever be able to listen to Whitney’s version of I Will Always Love You ever again. He is surrounded by his family and just trying to get through the pain. What people don’t realize is how much Ray loves Whitney, he never refers to her in the past tense. He just doesn’t know what to do with the huge void in his life.”
Death of a loved one is something that will forever change a person, and there is nothing wrong with seeking counseling to cope with it. We hope you get the help you need, Ray J.
