Ray J also noted that he thinks his busy schedule and constant travel caused his illness, as he’s juggling the filming of VH1’s ‘Love &Hip Hop,’ working on his Raycon brand and producing new music. He now realizes he needs to put his health before his work commitments.
Besides healing from his health scare, Ray J also filed for divorce from his wife, Princess Love, in L.A. County Superior Court while he was hospitalized. The filing marks the third time the couple, who are parents to son Epik Ray, 21 months, and daughter Melody Love, 3, has taken legal steps to separate.
The current divorce filing wasn’t influenced by the television personality’s current battle with the pneumonia; it was the result of ongoing problems in the spouses’ marriage.
Princess Love filed the first divorce proceedings in May 2020, as they’ve had a tumultuous marriage since their 2016 wedding. But they then spent the summer in quarantine together and tried to make their relationship work.
But by September of the same year, Ray J filed the second proceedings. Since then, the couple once again tried to reconcile, and even moved to Florida together with Epik Ray and Melody Love.
The singer revealed that he and his estranged wife considered marriage counseling during his appearance on ‘The Real‘ the same month he filed the second divorce proceedings. “I would be up for it,” he said during the interview. “I would be up for whatever it is to make sure that my kids have a strong foundation and have both their parents in their lives 24/7.
