Pat Houston is speaking out against reports that she started a scene with Ray J at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards last night. There were reports that minutes before Whitney Houston’s tribute, Pat Houston ordered security to get Ray J away from the Houston family.
Pat is saying this is TOTALLY FALSE! It was actually Ray J (being the attention whore that he is) who switched his seat closer to Bobbi Kristina minutes before the tribute. Ray J had sat in a seat Pat Houston had reserved for her party. Hotel security saw Ray J and they asked him to move. He refused, so they threaten to call the police. That’s when Pat says she was told the situation (as the ticket holder) and allowed him to sit there.
Pat explained that she had possession of six tickets for seats near the front of the stage at the Billboard Music Awards Show. Sitting in those seats were, Bobbi Kristina, her boyfriend Nick, a friend and two seat-fillers. At some point, Ray J moved from his original location to an open seat near Bobbi Kristina.
The production staff saw Ray J move and asked him to please return to his original seat. We’re told Ray J refused. Hotel staff/security witnessed Ray J’s refusal and stepped-in to ask him to return to his seat. Ray J again reportedly refused. After multiple attempts to get Ray J to return to his seat with no success, the Las Vegas Police were called by production staff to remove Ray J. Upon their arrival, Pat Houston was made aware of the situation, and told her security to inform the Police to “Stand-down” and that as the ticket holder, she would allow Ray J to remain in the seat.
Pat did not want Ray J removed and says all claims are completely FALSE, telling us, “I’m a woman of order and dignity, I would have not had anything to do with that.”
We reached out to Ray J’s camp for comment. They stand by initial reports.
