ray j & whitney houston*It’s been nearly a month since the death of Whitney Houston and Ray J is “still Hurting.”

The singer and sometime reality television star was one of the people who spent time with Houston in her last days.

“I really miss my friend, you know. I really do. I’m still hurting,” he told reporters at a charity event on Friday in Los Angeles:

“I’m able to look at life in a whole different way,” Ray J said. He then looked down at a smartphone and said, “I always look at my phone because I’ve got a picture of somebody that I really love and it helps me through the day.”

Ray J, who was joined by his parents Sonja and Willie Norwood, did not take questions from reporters.
