Ray J has broken his silence on Whitney Houston's death, saying, "Over the past few days, I've tried to process the emptiness that I am experiencing. What my heart feels cannot be expressed in words. The world lost an icon, but I lost my close friend."
Ray J continues, "Nippy, I miss you so much!" Nippy was a nickname Whitney's dad gave her.
And Ray J adds, "You were so happy and full of love. Your smile will live in my heart forever."
Ray J was dating Whitney in the months before she died.
