Exclusive: Ray J’s Take On The Whitney Houston Biopic
Two years after her death, it’s still difficult for Ray J to speak about his good friend, Whitney Houston.
“That’s a real touchy subject,” Ray revealed when speaking to HipHollywood about the upcoming Lifetime biopic, Whitney. Ray says he hasn’t “really paid attention” to details surrounding the project, he’s hopeful it showcases the legendary singer “in the right light.”
During the last few years of her life, Houston and Ray were very close leading many to speculate that the two were an item. While the biopic won’t include Ray’s relationship with Nippy, Whitney, starring America’s Next Top Model alum YaYa (Decosta) Alafia, is expected to focus on her time turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown.
The Angela Bassett directed original movie is currently in production in Los Angeles and is set to premiere on Lifetime next year.
