width=398With Whitney Houston's death, rumored lover Ray J seemed to be finally gaining a name for himself as something other than Kim Kardashian's sex-tape partner. The hip hop and R&B singer, younger brother to Moesha star and singer Brandy, was reportedly distraught over the sudden death of Whitney Houston, with whom he was rumored to be in a romantic relationship in the years before her death.

Well, it looks like Ray J's back to his same old sex-tape business. Radar Online is reporting that it has learned through anonymous sources that the singer has a ton of sexually explicit photos and videos featuring himself and the late Whitney Houston, and that the details will be published in this week's issue of Star magazine, which is the paper counterpart to online gossip site Radar.

The Houston family is obviously desperate to not let these tapes leak out, and according to Radar, the 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 family told Ray J that now is the time to honor Whitney, not drag her legacy down, but he seems to have a different motivation: money

Ray J has hesitated to release the tapes, not because of his own compunction about making them public, but rather because he knows he's sitting on a gold mine, if Radar's sources are to be believed.

And how did he manage to convince Whitney to allow herself to be videotaped in compromising sexual positions?

Whitney Houston loved doting on [Ray J] and would have done anything he asked, Radar's source said. Including making a sex tape.

This report, however, conflicts with earlier stories about Ray J, who was reportedly in love and deeply concerned about the late Whitney Houston. Moments after the singer was found dead in her Beverly Hills hotel room, Ray J was seen in the lobby distraught, repeating Whitney dead over and over again. Whitney dead, Ray J reportedly said. We all gotta live with that.

Could Ray J turn on Whitney like that? Do you think he'd really release the sex tapes, if he indeed has them?
