Raffles Van Exel Admits to Removing Evidence From Whitney Houston Death Scene


In my article on Whitney Houston and the Grammy Awards, I quoted an article that describes the odd presence of a guy named Raffles van Exel at the time of Whitney’s death. Described as a “Hollywood mystery”, the article states Raffles “trades on being an “insider” when there’s a scandal; No one really knows him, but he’s always where there’s action and celebrities.” He was also around Micheal Jackson during his difficult periods.

It was then discovered that Raffles was the one who took pictures of Whitney in her casket to then sell them to the National Inquirer. Today, another odd piece of information is out: Raffles admitted to removing “evidence” from Whitney’s room. How come this weird fellow with no family ties whatsoever has an all-access pass around celebrities in trouble? Is he an Illuminati insider that “facilitates” the sacrifices? Here’s an article on him removing evidence from Whitney’s room.

Man Confesses He Removed Evidence From Whitney Houston Death Scene: ‘Someone Had To Do It’ (EXCLUSIVE DETAILS)

A close confidant of the late pop diva Whitney Houston has admitted he cleaned up the hotel room where she drowned, Celebuzz has learned.

In an interview with respected Dutch newspaper The Telegraph on February 15, just four days after the singer’s death, Raffles van Exel confessed: “The room had to be emptied.”

“Someone had to do it,” van Exel told the newspaper, according to a translation of the article published online.

Van Exel stopped short of telling The Telegraph what exactly he removed from the suite and he has not returned Celebuzz’s request for comment.

Last week, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office declared Houston, 48, died from an accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub with the “effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.”

Sources tell Celebuzz that Beverly Hills police are still investigating how Houston acquired the drugs that contributed to her death and whether they were hidden from police and first responders.

No cocaine or drug paraphernalia were found in the suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., the source adds.

However, Houston’s cocaine use appeared to have occurred “in the time period just immediately prior to her collapse in the bathtub at the hotel,” Chief Coroner Craig Harvey said when he announced the findings of his report, last week.

“(Houston’s case) is still an open investigation for us… I can’t disclose any details about the investigation,” BHPD Lt. Mark Rosen told People on March 23.

In various media released, Van Exel, a Dutch national, touts himself as a “highly respected entertainment consultant” who has “guided some of the world’s most acclaimed executives and celebrities.”

His relationship with Houston and other stars, including late King of Pop Michael Jackson, have been the focus of investigation on two websites, including the urban blog Diary of a Hollywood Street King and Forbes.

My Heart goes out for Whitney and what she has gone through and I cant Imagine her mother and yet she came from a well respected family. All I know is that it wasn't easy for her and after all she just got herself together and than one night caused her life. All I know is that I LOVE YOU WHITNEY with all my heart I don't care what the people say and will always have to say R.I.P. My Love

None of these stories are true everyone is telling different stories about her death. He manger never got back to her she text Pat her sister in-law and called her and she never got back to her. until they got upstairs and the hair dresser screamed and she told the lady who open the door to call 911. the bodyguard was doing CPR on her so how the hell was he in the room and he was telling people downstairs that he found her how is he not being questioned in the matter. they are all a bunch of lairs and i know in my heart they killed her she cost them to much money on this last tour and album and Clive wanted her gone she makes more money dead then alive. Pat her sister in-law was always on the same floor as her and this time she was… Read more »

As usual doesn't make sense . She would have to be totally out of it to get in to tub that HOT , which means she couldn't have gotten into the tub conscience and by herself and there is no way a tub stays that hot , that long and first I heard she drowned in one foot of water and then it was flooded meaning there would be a hell of lot of water in even 15 , 20 mins let alone an hour .

I;ll never believe ANYTHING Hollywood says ,be default the Industry is worst than MAFIA crime family AND NOT TO BE TRUSTED .

It makes me wonder about Pat and other family members allowing such a shady character to be around Whitney. Weren't they suppose to be looking out for her best interest?

It is also very weird as pointed out by Dr. Drew that the temperature of the bath water nearly six hours after her death was still 93 degrees F. How is that even possible? I mean I can't even stay in the bath for an hour because the water goes cold!!! Come on people, what sort of bath is this? It overflowed the night before and the guy below her room reported it but later the hotel says that it wasn't her room? Dr. Drew also says that her supposed heart condition was minimal and that no doctor would do anything with it because it was minimal. The autopsy report says that her cause of death was accidental drowning due to 'cocaine use' and a heart condition. Yet all over the media they are saying 'cocaine overdose.' How was this minimal heart condition that needed no medical help supposed to… Read more »

" incompetence " ? … TRY collusion bcs the players are in place in hollyweird , in the police dept , in the coroners office to get what ever conclusion they want , most likely most belong to some secret society . My speculation is she was slipped something that knocked her out and placed face first ( how does someone end up turned around in a tub , face down , I know my tub isn't THAT big ) and 1955 Movie Les diaboliques shows it's easy to pull off and to show what kind of deviants these people are , some CDs were jacked up more than double with in 30 mins of death .

The Artist dies and Clive gets richer . The artist dies and Clive gets richer . No motive there .

I bet he was planting evidence and staging the death scene.

4 years 6 months ago


Drug photos were staged.

Cause of death was faked.

Daughter forcibly 'sedated' with drugs which will affect her memory of the event.

Whitney was not using cocaine.

'raffles' is a fixer. Low level criminal. He is also gay. His masters have a lot of compromising info on him and manipulate him at will. (He is fond of young boys.)

He is a connection worth follow up. When you see who is is connected with and who really pulls his string you will understand.

I know you wont publish this, but follow up the info. Its worth it.

This might be far out of left field… I always thought Jay-Z had some strange lyrics that don`t make sense,but when i read this article for the first time,something just clicked. J and his girl B, had a hit song a while back called Crazy In Love.In one of the lines that J raps,he says: "the roc (His company Rocawear) handle like van Exel." Does this mean he has known for a long time how this guy Raffles handles illuminati business? We all know what a big stooge J is for the illuminati. Way out theory i know, but not impossible.

actually j is most likely referring to nick van exel, a basketball player famous for his flashy ball-handling and ability to come through in clutch situations.

he says he was cleaning up the scene….maybe he was actually planting evidence?

Also there is a you tube of van Excel and Ray J leaving the BH Hotel in the dark covering their faces.

There is a youtube on Obama being at the the hotel same day as when Whitney passed and the secret service on the same floor as Whitney. I think there is some sort of connection.

4 years 6 months ago

There could be a possible link to Raffles and Whitney's death to Obama. Raffles van Excel started out as Raffles Dawson in Chicago (home of Obama). Raffles is part of the gay mafia and Obama has been rumored to be closeted. Do they have a connection? On 2/11, Obama was staying at the same hotel as Whitney on the 8th floor, while the secert service was on the same floor as Whitney. I'm not sure whether this is coincidence or something larger. What is your opinion?

4 years 6 months ago

My opinion? Those are EXTREMELY tenuous and vague connections because:

1) Chicago is a major metro area with a population of millions, people can and do live their whole lives there without crossing paths

2) No rumor about Obama has ever been proven to be true, and all lack evidence beyond hearsay and conjecture – besides, a gay THAT deep in the closet would more likely be a conservative, not a liberal, to throw people further off the truth

3) The hotel likely had numerous other celebrities and public figures there at the same time – it's kind of a "go-to" hotel for the wealthy staying in LA

4) The "gay mafia" is highly unlikely to kill gay icons – they're more profitable alive! Sure, her albums sold gangbusters immediately after she died, but in a year they'll barely be moving, with nothing else on the horizon

4 years 6 months ago

There are closeted politicians in both parties. Don't fall for this left right nonsense. The rumor about Obama's homosexuality has never been proven because the media has never investigated. There are a lot of things aboout presidents that are not revealed while in office. For example, there are several books that have detailed Nixons bisexuality and the bush family connection to the Nazis.

Case closed, no investigation folks!

If he's a fixer, he has a damn big mouth. I'm more inclined to think he's the flashy assistant that distracts from the shenannigans going on right under our noses. I agree with an earlier poster who said that it *has* to be illegal drugs because they don't want us realizing how dangerous the perscription drugs are. Also could be that she died from an injection of something illegal ( like Marilyn ) but since nothing was found at the scene, our flashy assistant comes out and takes the heat, claiming he cleaned it all up. Ta Da! Murder without evidence.

4 years 6 months ago

Whitney's time was up that's all it is! You can't sign the contract in blood and expect to not give anything back. She knew what the deal was and no matter what gospel songs you sing, it will not save you! Remember people are put in place to do what they do. Cocaine is a STIMULANT! There is something not right with the autopsy report.

Look at how TMZ is trying to protect Raffles Van Exel. I guess they need to keep him "clean" for his next victim. http://www.tmz.com/2012/04/01/whitney-houston-raf

Raffles and Harvey Levin are or were in a homosexual relationship.

Hmm, kinda funny how he conveniently waited until the cause of death was finally stated as involving coke to say he cleaned up the room. Sounds like a load of horse fertilizer to me.

The police department has determined that no further investigation is warranted in Whitney Houston's case. NOW, they indicate that a "white, powdery remnant" that tested positive for cocaine surfaced in the original investigation. See the following link and an excerpt from the article: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1682135/whitney-… …TMZ also reported that Beverly Hills Police detectives are not investigating the rumors that a friend of Houston's allegedly removed cocaine from the room following her death because they are not convinced evidence of the drug was swept away before their arrival… The notion that the shabbiness of this investigation is a test to see how the public will respond resonates for me. Still, I am puzzled. The report takes particular care to note that other drugs in Whitney's room played no part in her death. Xanax is a bitch, and some deem it as destructive if not worse than street drugs. I've also noticed Xanax… Read more »

Everybody Check This Out

Yesterday (3/29) this story came out:

Sky News: Police to question Houston's assistant (raffles)

For additional info on this check out Jacky Jasper site

Now Today this story comes out:

Cocaine Found In Whitney Houston's Hotel Room | TMZ.com ( which means no investigation into raffles)

Interesting how they changed their minds so quick. I'm not surprised, because everything about this case screams coverup.

4 years 6 months ago

All the articles that I've read about raffles potray him as an innocent character who just wanted fame and liked living through celebs. However, this is starting to change.

This is an excerpt from Jacky Jasper's story Breaking News: Witness Affidavit to BHPD regarding Raffles van Exel:

Well known Beverly Hills attorney, Ronald Richards has received a sworn statement from a Hollywood Street King (HSK) witnesses, who is a Dutch national and has an extensive history with the man known as Raffles van Exel. The affidavit alleges knowledge of Raffles engaging in cocaine distribution and numerous narcotics related conduct consistent with large scale narcotics trafficking. The witness also has information of Raffles shipping Federal express packages between Amsterdam, Los Angeles and Chicago, which are well documented narcotics routes, for source countries

Also While Raffles admits speaking to press in the Netherlands he denies telling them he cleared Whitney's room… From The National Enquirer "That's ridiculous," van Exel told The Enquirer. "I did get a call from a station (in Holland) a couple of days after Whitney died and spoke about her death in generalities. But of course I didn't say that." However, he did admit to being in Whitney's suite before authorities arrived. "I came into Whitney's room just before the police and paramedics did," he said. "I don't know what drugs were there, but the place was clean when I arrived. Only after the police had gone and Whitney's body had been removed did I help her brother Gary and wife Pat pack up Whitney's clothes and other possessions. That was the only so-called 'clean-up' I was involved in, and it had nothing to do with drugs. All three of… Read more »
