A lot of fans aren’t surprised that Ray J and Princess Love have officially decided to get a divorce. A few years ago, the couple’s issues were put front and center on the reality series Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood. For years, fans saw them dealing with Ray J’s infidelity and overall family issues. During their time on the show, some of the most memorable moments include Princess throwing a drink in Ray J’s face and him pushing her in the pool because of that.
Back in 2018, Princess started to post subliminal messages on social media hinting at leaving a toxic relationship. “To me, for better or worse doesn’t mean cheating. That’s like saying stay with a man that beats you,” Princess wrote. Prior to Princess’s posts, Ray J was seen at the club without his wedding ring on. There was also a video of Ray J in a hotel which added more fuel to the cheating rumors. Some fans also believed that this was just a publicity stunt to promote the upcoming season of LHHH.
During the 2019 BET Soul Train Awards, Princess let the world know that Ray J left her and their daughter in Vegas. She claims that after the show Ray J “stranded” them over the weekend. The back-and-forth on social media started after Ray J posted a photo of him and his family at the award show. Princess quickly commented on the post saying “Left me and Melody stranded in Vegas and blocked me from calling… Now you wanna post family photos.”
Princess kept going after this saying “Yes I can fly home… I have my own money but my car is here and I don’t want to drive back along with my daughter because I’m over 8 months pregnant and I don’t even want to have to stop for gas or go into labor with all of this human trafficking going on.” Ray J responded with a video claiming that he never left Vegas. A few weeks later the couple announced that they are currently living apart.
Even though the couple has been living separately for a while, they were still trying to work on their marriage. After the Vegas incident, Princess seemed sure that she didn’t want to be with Ray J anymore. “I don’t want to be married anymore, period. I don’t have time for this” she says. “This is not love and I’m done.” They did try to spend some quality time together, but it seems like it didn’t help much because they officially announced that they’re getting a divorce.
