Ray J, Whitney Houston’s boyfriend, is reportedly seeking counseling to help him cope with the singer’s recent death.
Ray J, 31, is heartbroken after Whitney Houston, 48, died last month and his sister Brandy has urged him to seek professional help to manage his grief.
A source told RadarOnline.com: ”Ray J is obviously absolutely devastated by the loss of Whitney, who he says was the love of his life. Even though a month has passed since she died, Ray still can’t believe that Whitney is gone. He has saved voicemail messages on his cell phone from her that he has been listening to. His sister Brandy has urged him to go to counseling to deal with this loss, and he has finally agreed.
”Brandy and her brother are extremely close, and she has been a rock for him in the weeks since Whitney died. However, Brandy is also dealing with a huge loss, as she worked with Whitney professionally, and loved her like an older sister. Brandy recognizes that she can only help her brother so much. Ray has promised Brandy he will see someone.”
Ray J has also told friends he is so upset by Whitney’s death that he can’t even listen to her music anymore.
The source added: ”Ray has told his family he doesn’t know if he will ever be able to listen to Whitney’s version of <<I Will Always Love You>> ever again. He is surrounded by his family and just trying to get through the pain. What people don’t realize is how much Ray loves Whitney, he never refers to her in the past tense. He just doesn’t know what to do with the huge void in his life.”
