Norwood starred in the UPN sitcom Moesha as the title character, which lasted six seasons and resulted in numerous other roles.
She resumed her music career in 1998 with the widely successful duet with fellow R&B contemporary Monica, "The Boy Is Mine", which went on to become the best selling female duet of all time, and one of the longest running number one singles in history.
Though Ray has not emerged publically to make these claims himself, TMZ's source claims to be close to the rapper.
If Ray's version of the incident is true, it would corroborate with evidence recently given by a police officer who was at the scene who has filed a complaint report against one of his colleagues.
He was seen being consoled by his bodyguard as they made their way through the airport.
During Houston's funeral on Saturday, Ray J broke down as he watched her coffin being carried away out of the church.
The singer was once married to Bobby Brown, and the two had an infamously turbulent relationship.
Sergeant Brian Weir was at the scene of Houston's death and heard one of his co-workers, Det Sgt Nutall allegedly make some rather untoward comments regarding the star's naked cadaver."Nutall, for no legitimate [reason] knelt beside and leaned over the decedent [and] removed the sheet and/or other covering from the body of the decedent to an area below the pubic region of the decedent's body," says Weir's complaint, filed in Los Angeles on the 11 September.
Weir also claims that he heard Nutall remark; "Damn, she's still looking good, huh? Representatives from the county police have denied that there was any misconduct at the scene of Whitney's death, and have also refuted the widely reported news that Weir had suffered any retaliatory harassment or had been punished for his claims."It is appropriate for a responding detective sergeant to briefly examine the body upon arriving to a scene like that.
They once appeared on their own reality show, in which many of their marital problems were brought to light.
Brown was accused of domestic violence in 1993 after Houston claimed he slapped her during a jealous argument. Whitney's most recent romantic partner was 31-year-old rapper Ray J -- who was infamously linked to Kim Kardashian in their 2003 sex tape. The two dated on-and-off for four years, after Houston divorced Bobby in 2007.
