These are probably not the kind of headlines Ray J wanted to be making. Early yesterday morning, just as rumors were circulating about Whitney Houston’s ex-boyfriend almost getting into a scuffle with Pat Houston in the middle of the Billboard Music Awards, the singer was apparently checking into a hospital in Las Vegas. He is being treated for “exhaustion and jet lag,” a rep told E! Online.
As much as we always assume “exhaustion” is a code word for some kind of substance abuse — especially after the kind of accusations Houston’s family has been throwing around of Ray J being responsible for getting her hooked on cocaine again — one glimpse at his schedule makes us think this might be a legit excuse. Before the Billboard Awards, Ray had reportedly been on a 32-hour round trip to China, where he performed in a concert and then had some meetings “regarding a new business,” according to Radar Online. He drove four hours from L.A. to Vegas for the show, which included a very moving tribute to his ex, and then hosted an afterparty to launch Prince Reigns hair serum. Take a breather, Ray J. No hair product deal can be worth your health!
