R&B singer Ray J was in a hospital Tuesday. His representative said that he entered a facility near Las Vegas on Monday and “will remain there for treatment for exhaustion and jet lag.” Ray J, 31, was close friends with Whitney Houston. TMZ reported that he “was almost physically removed” after Pat Houston, the late singer’s sister-in-law, objected to being seated with other family members alongside Ray J at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
