Ray J So rumor has it there was some sort of an altercation between Whitney Houston's family and former fling Ray J at last night's Billboard Music Awards. Allegedly, Ray J was seated next to the Houston family for the event and Whitney's sister-in-law/former manager asked that he be moved.

This is where things really get scandalous, though. There may or may not have been eight uniformed officers who arrived on the scene to physically remove him. Oh snapppppppp.

Alas, a rep for the Las Vegas Police Department told Access they don't have a record of the whole shebang. In my eyes, it seems a little hyped up -- eh? If this is true, aren't we forgetting what's most important here? You know -- honoring Whitney?

Since the tragedy, Whitney's been honored absolutely everywhere. Every single time, there's this overall feel of appreciation and respect for her talent and her legacy. It really is somewhat surprising to me that something like this would actually happen on such a big night.

If it did, though, I'm sure it's all emotionally charged. Whitney meant a lot to both Ray J and, of course, her family. Maybe this is something they wanted to celebrate together, and they felt him being in the picture took away from it.

One thing is for sure: Jordin Sparks and John Legend did an impeccable job with their touching Whitney Houston tribute. That, and Bobbi Kristina made me tear up instantaneously with her on-stage speech. Conflict or not, there's no denying that Whitney's instilled some of her beauty within her daughter.

Do you believe there was a brawl between Ray J and the Houston family? Did you watch last night's Billboard Awards?
