Ray J, aka William Ray Norwood, was born to Willie Norwood and Sonja-Bates Norwood in Mississippi. He grew up with his older sister, Brandy, a multi-platinum singer and actress.

The siblings began their careers in the entertainment industry after the family moved to Los Angeles in 1989. The Wait, a Minute crooner is also the first cousin to rapper Snoop Dogg.


The 40-year-old has been linked with several high-profile celebrities throughout his career, including Kim Kardashian and Whitney Houston. However, he made headlines because of his highly publicized relationship with fellow Love & Hip Hop cast member Princess Love.

The duo started dating in 2013 and tied the knot in 2016 following a tumultuous relationship. The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Melody Love, in 2018. Their second child, son Epik Ray, was born in 2020.


Unfortunately, that same year, the duo filed for divorce after nearly five years of marriage. However, Princess Love reportedly called off the divorce earlier this year, mentioning that the pair were on good terms and wanted to strengthen their family.

They also wanted to make the relationship work with the hope of providing a happy and comfortable life to their children.

Prior to his hospitalization, Ray J wrote "single and separated" on his Instagram bio, sparking separation rumors once again.

It remains to be seen if Princess Love will comment on the singer's health condition. Meanwhile, fans of the musician are hoping for his speedy recovery.
