In the wake of reports that Ray J is holding on to some x-rated footage of himself and Whitney Houston, the singer's rep has come forward to deny the claims.

"The despicable tabloid report released today claiming the existence of a sex tape between Ray J and Whitney Houston is not true," his rep told TMZ. "There is no sex tape."

Earlier today, a source claimed the For the Love of Ray J star had explicit materials featuring the iconic singer, and knew they would be worth a lot of money. It was also reported that the Houston family was offering him a deal to hand over the sex tapes.

Sources in Ray J's camp say he never had any footage of himself with Whitney Houston.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late singer Whitney Houston, has not gotten engaged to her adopted-brother-turned-boyfriend, despite what appearances may suggest.

According to her rep, the 19-year-old is not set to marry Nick Gordon. An insider also said the large ring spotted on Brown's ring finger was her mother's.

Gordon is not related to Brown, but the Houstons took him in as part of the family many years ago. He was never formally adopted, but is often referred to as a "brother" and "son."

The two began dating after Brown lost her mother in February.

Cissy Houston, mother of the late Whitney Houston, is allegedly very upset that her granddaughter Bobbi Kristina Brown has struck up a romantic relationship with her adopted "brudder" Nick Gordon.

"What they're doing is incestuous," Houston reportedly told a close friend after seeing the video above, which features the new couple embracing and kissing.

The iconic singer never formally adopted Gordon, but he was considered a part of the family, and was often referred to as a son and brother by the Houstons.

Brown's grandmother supposedly believes that Brown has problems, and Gordon is taking advantage of the situation.

A source reports that Houston is so concerned that she may be trying to get him evicted from Whitney's home, where he lives with Brown.

Bobbi Kristina Brown and her sort-of adopted brother Nick Gordon have revealed on Twitter that they are officially an item.

While Brown may refer to Gordon as her "big brudder," Gordon is a close family friend, and is not related to the late Whitney Houston in any way.

A source close to the Houston family said Brown and Gordon met as kids, and he had intentions of enlisting in the military after high school so he could get away from family issues.

Brown reportedly told her mother that she didn't want him to go, and the singer took her daughter's friend in as part of the family.

"Yea we got a little closer and what!!!… All the haters that dont know us or th real story can't un follow me," tweeted Gordon. "I don't give a f*ck."

The insider described Brown's new boyfriend as laid back, smart, and very supportive. Gordon was allegedly the "man" of the house since Brown's father, Bobby Brown, was never present.

"I've proved my loyalty to her and the Houston family," he wrote. "I don't owe any of you anything. Ha I don't even know y'all haters….Some ppl have no lives so they gotta be in ours."

Bobbi Kristina Brown recently sat down with Oprah and for the first time since Whitney Houston's death, opened up about her late mother and the rumors that surrounded her untimely demise.

Last night on Oprah's Next Chapter, Bobbi Kristina said she was doing "okay," and that she was "just trying to keep going," in the wake of her mother's passing.

The 18-year-old also said that she can still feel her mother's presence, and the iconic singer's voice is still in her mind, dispensing advice.

Bobbi Kristina added that the unflattering rumors that came out after Houston's death were "garbage."

The late singer's confidante and sister-in-law Patricia Houston also appeared on Oprah's show, and spoke of the moments after Houston's body was found in her bath tub.

She also dispelled rumors that drugs were an issue for the singer just before she died.

Houston's brother Gary also appeared on the show and revealed to the host that he "never thought anything like this would happen," yet their mother, Cissy Houston, would often say that Houston was an angel, and that "she's not going to be with us too long."

The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office has received multiple emails and phone calls from alleged relatives of Whitney Houston who believe the iconic singer may have been murdered.

Sources say that some claim to be family of Houston, while others claim to be related to Bobby Brown.

The Coroner's office has not been able to verify if the callers are actually relatives of the late singer, but at least one caller claimed to have information that would support a murder theory.

The Coroner has said there was no sign of foul play in Houston's death, but the official cause will not be released until the toxicology tests are complete.

Late last month, a source said that her death will most likely be ruled as an accident.
