I guess this story isn’t surprising, considering that Ray J’s propensity to tape himself having sex just happened to make Kim Kardashian famous. But I still found this story shocking, and it made me feel bad for Whitney’s family. Bobbi Kristina doesn’t need to hear this just after she lost her mom. Anyway Star Magazine is reporting [via Radar] that Ray J is just kind of holding on to all this stuff from his relationship with Whitney. You know it’s worth a ton of money now that she’s passed on, and you also know that her estate will sue the crap out of Ray J if he puts it out there. So he’s just putting feelers out now to see if he gets any cease and desists in response. Here’s more,thanks to Radar:
Ray J is sitting on “a ton of sexually explicit photos and videos” starring he [sic] and the late Whitney Houston, an insider exclusively tells this week’s edition of Star.
The Houston family has “been in contact with Ray and told him they do not want any photos or videos painting her in a bad light to come out,” the source said, adding the famous family “explained to Ray that now is the time to honor Whitney, not drag her legacy down.”
The insider said the younger brother of singer Brandy has “been stalling” to sell, or hand them over, them to Whitney’s family “because he knows he’s sitting on a gold mine.”
The late Houston “adored” Ray J, the insider said of the the hip-hop hunk, whose name is synonymous with his 2007 sex tape with Kim Kardashian.
The late singer, who dated the 31-year-old stud on and off in her final years, “loved doting on him and would have done anything he asked — including making a sex tape,” the insider said.
Houston was found dead at 48 February 11 at the Beverly Hills Hilton; autopsy results are pending.

Both participants in a sex tape have to sign off on its release, so you can be sure that everything that Vivid puts out especially (as they’re one of the most legit adult film companies) has the blessing of both of the stars, who are getting paid very well for it. There are some cases where celebrity sex tapes have been released without their permission (Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, for instance, and questionably Paris Hilton, although rumor has it she made a mint) but you can be sure that all the recent ones have their blessing. That’s preface to the fact that the estate for Whitney Houston has to approve this, and you know they’re not going to. There are still tens of millions to be made off her incredible music catalog, and as this article states they’re not going to mess with her image. Ray-J should just hook up with another starlet and get her to make a sex tape with him. I hear Lindsay Lohan is single, and she’ll do it for a bottle of Smirnoff and a pack of smokes.
