Ray J went crazy after hearing police make jokes about Whitney Houston's dead body, according to TMZ.

The singer -- who got famous making a sex tape with Kim Kardashian that she didn't exploit to become an international superstar -- was romantically linked to Houston in the months before her death. He apparently was outside the Beverly Hill Hotel suite in which Houston died as official examined the scene.

Sources reportedly told the website Ray J heard a "disrespectful comment" about Houston, followed by loud laughter. He reportedly got angry and tried to get inside, but was restrained. After the scenario repeated itself, he was removed from the floor.

Reports surfaced earlier this week that a police officer has filed a claim against the Beverly Hill Police Department, reporting that he was demoted after reporting a colleague picked up the sheet covering the lower half of Houston's body and made a comment about how she looked.

The police department has denied the allegations. Ray J has not commented on the story.
