Ray J scared everyone on social media after posting videos of himself contemplating ending his life. The 41 year old television star shared a series of videos on his feed and stories, in which he mentioned that he was considering jumping off a ledge.
Ray then deleted the posts, and a source has said that he is fine now, but fans were surely concerned and sent prayers of strength for the actor. Ray has been facing troubles in his personal life over the last few months, with his infamous sex tape with Kim Kardashian again becoming a hot topic of discussion.
Ray J Shares Suicidal Thoughts in Social Media Posts
In one of the videos posted on Thursday, Ray J was sitting atop some kind of an elevated surface and was recording the bright orange moon. “If it wasn’t 4 my Kidz I would jump off and die tonight,” he captioned the video, which has now been deleted.
A second video showed him sitting on a ledge with his feet dangling. Ray captured the ground below and the ledge around him. He captioned the post, “SHOULD I JUST JUMP off and end it rit [sic]. Now!!! ????” which was deleted as well.
He also took to Instagram stories to share videos in the same setting. “trying to figure it out – maybe this life was a illusion – maybe the next life was my real reality,” he wrote in one video and captioned the other, “IF I DIE TONIGHT.”
Sources say Ray J is fine now
A source close to the actor-singer has now revealed that Ray J is fine now, and everything is OK with him. He also added that the videos were taken while Ray was on vacation with his wife, Princess Love, with whom he shares two children.
The source also said, “He thought about issuing an Instagram statement about it but changed his mind and is being vague.” Ray J or his reps are yet to comment on the matter. The actor has been having a hard time personally for the last few months. He is facing constant marital issues with his wife, who asked for a divorce from him. The couple has been trying to reconcile their differences.
His past has also come back to haunt him, as Kris Jenner recently passed a lie detector test saying that she had no involvement in the Ray-Kim sex tape being leaked, a claim that Ray J refutes.
Fans were Seen Expressing their Concern for the Actor
After Ray J posted the alarming messages on social media, fans expressed their concern for the actor and prayed for his strength. “Sending prayers of strength to Ray J & I hope he has people in his corner showering him with love and support,” tweeted a fan.
Another fan wrote, “@RayJ bro remember #youurafighternotaquitter so keep fighting don’t let the media win let them know who @RayJ truly is,” while a third one tweeted, “Damn I hope Ray J gets him some counseling so he can sort through those issues.”
