Is Kim Kardashian’s sex tape ex-boyfriend joining Celebrity Big Brother?
Kim Kardashian West’s ex-boyfriend Ray J is in talks to join Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5 in January, according to new reports.
Ray J is a singer/songwriter, the brother of Brandy Norwood and the cousin of Snoop Dog, but he is best known for dating Kim Kardashian West in the early noughties. In 2007, an old sex tape leaked of the two of them, propelling Kardashian West to fame.
Celebrity Big Brother bosses are reportedly hoping Ray J will dish all the dirt on Kardashian West, now one of the world’s most famous celebrities and star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Kim is one of the biggest celebrities in the world and they were never going to get her but booking Ray J means they’ll get someone with proper insight into what goes on behind closed doors. He was right by her side as she shot to fame because of their sex tape so they are hoping he will talk openly about their relationship and reveal lots of new things about her while in the house.”
They added that CBB bosses are “over the moon with how the negotiations are going” to procure Ray J.
The new series of Celebrity Big Brother will focus on All Stars vs New Stars, pitting new faces against some of the show’s established greats.
There has been a lot of speculation which of the show’s most popular and controversial contestants might be in the running for the new series. Currently, Katie Price, Stephen Bear and Katie Hopkins are all rumoured to be in the mix.
