Ray J had a run-in with Whitney Houston’s family at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night.
A moment that should have been about honoring Whitney Houston was disrupted by a dust-up between Ray J and Whitney’s sister-in-law Pat Houston.
We’re hearing that Pat was not happy about the fact that producers for the Billboard Music Awards seated Ray next to Whitney’s family, and she tried to have him removed.
Pat initially asked hotel security to move Ray J, but he refused to get up from his spot. Hotel staff then called in Las Vegas police, and during commercial breaks Ray was told that if he didn’t find some place else to sit he would be arrested.
In all, about eight police officers were ready to haul Ray away, but Pat backed down when it became clear that any arrest would create a big scene.
Throughout the incident, Bobbi Kristina remained rather neutral. She wasn’t in support of having Ray removed, but she didn’t stick up for him either.
We’re told that Ray is very upset about the incident.
