WHITNEY HOUSTON: WHO'S YOUR BOYFRIEND?
Whitney Houston is in LOVE! She has flipped for a way YOUNGER man – Brandy’s brother, actor/singer Ray J, who’s only 26, and they are living together. He has a hit song “My Wish” from his album “Raydiation.”
Whitney,43, met Ray a week after Thanksgiving and they’ve been together ever since. She spent the holidays with Brandy Norwood and her family and Brandy’s mom formed a special friendship with Whitney. The family is a good influence – Whitney is 100% sober.
Since they started seeing each other Ray has spiffed up his look- he stopped wearing baggy hip hop clothes and started dressing in tailored suits “like a businessman. He looks OLDER! Whitney spends all her time at Ray’s house or Brandy’s in Calabasas (the family has kind of adopted her.) Ray and Whitney are very cuddly and affectionate – they don’t go out in public much – sometimes they drive up to Santa Barbara and stay at the Bacara spa there. Ray is very excited about helping Whitney with her new comeback album. She’s paying more attention to Ray than she is Clive Davis and Clive is losing his influence.
Whitney is described as a “whole new person.” She’s happy and optimistic. Keep in mind that people struggling with sobriety are advised NOT to jump into new relationships for at least a year so this might be risky for vulnerable Whitney. But the Norwoods are helping her through hard times.
THIS JUST IN: An eyewitness says that Whitney appeared to be drinking what looked like liquor in the restaurant. We’ll keep an eye on this.
