Ray J hospitalized in Vegas with exhaustion

Singer and reality TV star Ray J has been hospitalized in Las Vegas following the Billboard Music Awards, and his reps have already released a formal statement explaining why.

In an effort to get out in front of the rumor mill, a rep told Us Weekly that Ray J was hospitalized on Monday--and will remain there for an indefinite amount of time--so that he can properly recuperate from both exhaustion and jet lag.

Ray J reportedly flew from China back to the United States (a flight that takes over 24 hours) in order to appear at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.

Still, this likely won’t kill the rumors—this is the Internet—that Ray J’s hospitalization somehow relates to Whitney Houston’s death in February. It’s been well documented that Ray J and Whitney had a thing going on prior to Houston’s passing, and Ray J has since acknowledged that it’s been difficult to process Whitney’s death and move past the tragedy.

You may remember Ray J best for being Brandy’s brother (or for that absurdly clear sex tape with Kim Kardashian), but he was also looking for love Flavor Flav style on VH1’s “For the Love of Ray J” two years ago, and even got into a Twitter beef with Fabolous in 2011.
