Ray J was almost physically removed from the Billboard Music Awards last night after an angry confrontation with Whitney Houston's family members.

Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law/manager, was seated next to Ray J, the person Pat believes was a very bad influence on the late music legend.

Minutes before a tribute to Whitney, in which Jordin Sparks sang and Bobbi Kristina Brown accepted an award, Pat asked her security to nix Ray J.

After Whitney's ex-BF refused to budge, Pat's security summoned hotel security, along with several uniformed officers to physically remove Ray.

Just before it got ugly, security warned Pat that things would likely get physical and it would almost be caught on video, just as Whitney was to be honored.

Sources say Pat then grudgingly recanted and Ray J stayed.

Later, Ray reportedly complained to friends about the incident, saying "Pat ruined what was a great opportunity to honor the woman who I loved."

A rep for the Houston family later admitted they did ask Ray J to be moved from his seat because Billboard told them they needed that particular seat.

Ray J had a ticket with the proper seat number, so he refused to budge, and security was called, but the Houstons deny any lingering feud with Ray.

In related news (not really), Kim Kardashian is the hottest woman in the world, according to Zoo Weekly. She can thank Ray for that glorious title.

Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, appeared briefly on stage at last night's Billboard Music Awards after a tribute to her late mother.

Bobbi Kristina, in her first major public appearance since her mother died, called herself "blessed to have been in such an incredible woman's life."

She accepted the Millennium Award after performances by John Legend and Jordan Sparks. Here's Sparks' rendition of "I Will Always Love You" ...

Sparks, the one-time American Idol winner, more than held her own in the presence of greatness. Whitney's legacy will never be forgotten.

The camera cut to a crying Bobbi Kristina multiple times during the moving effort by Jordin, which moved much of the audience to near-tears.

Bobbi Kristina Brown was then joined on stage by Whitney's sister-in-law and manager, Pat Houston, who spoke briefly to the crowd as well.
