In 2012, just two days before Whitney Houston’s death, Stacy Francis and Whitney Houston reportedly got into a cat fight over Ray J.

Now, Francis is speaking out about that night, and it sounds like she just wants to move on.

“In 2012 I had an awkward run-in with the voice and diva Whitney Houston. As most of the world already knows! Now what the world was not aware of at the time was the fact that I had been singing all my life and Whitney was my idol. I have talked about this situation in the media. And on television. And I have been attacked for addressing it. I have been accused of using this awful situation to get attention. But lets talk straight here. Who wants this kind of attention?! I mean seriously. Who wants to be known for having a fight with an idol? And who in the world wants to be trending on twitter about it? Not me!” she explained.

She then continued, “I am not writing this piece to talk about details of that night. Too many times it has been spoken about and it has been misunderstood. And there are many lies that have been told about it. People starve for drama. They starve of the sensationalism that the media can happily sell them.”

She added, “My life was ruined. I felt like a big piece of me had also died. No one wanted to work with me.”

She then went on to explain what started the fight: “Ray J was Whitney’s boyfriend at the time of her death. He was at the club that night and when Whitney saw us talking she became enraged. She didn’t understand our relationship. I had known Ray for over 20 years. And he was like family to me. He kept saying ‘she is family…she is family…it’s ok’. But Whitney wouldn’t hear of it.”

She concluded by saying, “At the end of the day when horrific things happen to us we must be able to see the lessons in it to help others pull through.”
