*A lawyer for Ray J has come out swinging against Bobby Brown’s sister for suggesting he is withholding information about Whitney Houston’s death.
Houston’s official cause of death was ruled as accidental drowning, in addition to the effects of heart disease and cocaine use.
As previously reported, the singer’s former sister-in-law, Leolah Brown, appeared on HLN’s “Dr. Drew” on Thursday to discuss her version of events leading up to the superstar’s passing. She accused Ray J of helping Houston get drugs, since he allegedly “knows somebody that sells drugs.”
Recounting the night of Whitney’s death, Brown said, “I saw Ray J coming out of the hotel, hiding his head, being pushed into a car. Why? I looked and I said, ‘Why is he hiding his face? He’s always trying to show his face around Whitney. Why now? Why are you trying to hide Ray J?'”
A rep for Ray J has lashed out at the claims, insisting her interview was “rife” with “false” allegations.
“Though Leolah Brown was nowhere near the Beverly Hilton hotel on the day Whitney Houston died, CNN [sic] proceeded to broadcast an interview with Ms. Brown in which she falsely claimed that Ray J was at the hotel and contributed to Whitney Houston’s death.
“Even the most minimal inquiry with anyone actually in contact with Whitney would reveal that Leolah Brown had been out of contact with Whitney for more than a year and was nowhere near the scene on the day of her death.”
