Raffles Van Exel Threatening Legal Action Over Whitney Houston Drug Dealer Claims
Since the death of the legendary Whitney Houston, there have been unending reports about her drug problem. The man who has been accused of supplying late singer with cocaine shortly before her death has also been reported to be one of her "close friends." Raffles van Exel is declaring war on media outlets that ran the drug story in a bid to clear his name. He told press that he is "neither the architect nor the culprit of the sudden demise of Whitney Houston..."
Raffles was said to be with Whitney just hours before her death at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, and there were widespread reports strongly insinuating that he was the secret cocaine supplier. He admitted back in March that he had wiped the hotel room clean in which the singer was staying, which is where the suspicion of illegal activity came from.
However, Raffles van Exel is adamantly denying all the reports, and has begun taking aggressive legal steps to save his reputation. According to his Twitter account, he is described as a "European actor, music consultant and producer. He is a highly respected entertainment consultant having guided some of the world greatest."
Rest in peace, Whitney.
