A rep for singer Ray J went on record to say the singer was taken to a Las Vegas-area hospital on Monday and “will remain there for treatment for exhaustion and jet lag.” The singer was rushed to the hospital the day after the Billboard Awards after a friend went to his room and noticed he was “out of it.” He was so “out of it,” he couldn’t even get himself out of the bed.
Ray J attended the Billboard Music Awards in Sin City and later that evening he hosted a launch party at the Rio Hotel & Casino for Prince Reigns, a hair serum product he is endorsing.
According to his rep, Ray J had just returned to the U.S. following a “quick 32-hour round trip from China” and upon landing immediately drove four hours to Las Vegas.
Sources close to the singer suggest that Ray J had a dispute with the Whitney Houston family… it seems the drama between the two parties and the jet lag had helped land Ray J in the hospital.
The verbal altercation he got into with Pat Houston at the Billboard Awards was reportedly due to the fact that Ray J was seated a little too close to the Houston family. The family demanded he moved and things escalated.
