Rumors hit the internet yesterday that Pat Houston was not feeling Ray J. sitting next to her family during the Billboard Awards and forcefully tried to have him removed.  Well, HipHollywood.com's Kevin Frazier caught up with Pat and she completely denied the rumors.

Here is how the story is being reported:

HipHollywood.com’s Kevin Frazier spoke to Pat to tell her side of the story, and how the events transpired; since she was the one with the tickets to the seats surrounding this controversy.

Pat explained that she had possession of six tickets for seats near the front of the stage at the Billboard Music Awards Show. Sitting in those seats were, Bobbi Kristina, her boyfriend Nick, a friend and two seat-fillers. At some point, Ray J moved from his original location to an open seat near Bobbi Kristina.

The production staff saw Ray J move and asked him to please return to his original seat. We’re told Ray J refused. Hotel staff/security witnessed Ray J’s refusal and stepped-in to ask him to return to his seat. Ray J again reportedly refused. After multiple attempts to get Ray J to return to his seat with no success, the Las Vegas Police were called by production staff to remove Ray J. Upon their arrival, Pat Houston was made aware of the situation, and told her security to inform the Police to “Stand-down” and that as the ticket holder, she would allow Ray J to remain in the seat.

Pat did not want Ray J removed and says all claims are completely FALSE, telling us, “I’m a woman of order and dignity, I would have not had anything to do with that.”

We reached out to Ray J’s camp for comment. They stand by initial reports.
I don't know who to believe on this rumor.  Both parties are shady in my opinion, but if I had to choose a side I think I'm going to ride with Pat on this one.  I just find it hard to believe that production security and the police would have gotten involved if Ray J. had a ticket for his seat.  And honestly what has Ray J. done that would warrant him being up front at an award's show anyway?  It's normally the people who have some involvement in the show that gets to sit up front.  I'm just saying... 

So as much as it pains me, I'm going to side with Pat Houston.  I think she's telling the truth in this instance.
