Raffles Van Exel, Whitney Houston’s close friend, seems to be “extremely relieved” he is not in the crosshairs of the Beverly Hills Police Department in the singer’s death investigation.
Several reports were posted this week that someone removed cocaine from Whitney Houston’s hotel room before authorities arrived, and the reports say detectives were targeting Raffles Van Exel.
The stories are not true, because authorities actually found cocaine in Whitney Houston’s Beverly Hilton hotel room and detectives are satisfied they have all the evidence they need to close the case.
There is no investigation focusing on anyone removing evidence from the hotel room.
As for Raffles Van Exel, sources told TMZ that he is going to the Beverly Hills PD next week with his lawyer to make sure they’re square with him.
