Ray J has walked from Celebrity Big Brother but now demands “put me back in the house”
Ray J has left the Celebrity Big Brother house after just one week. However, the rapper has now requested that he makes a return to the show.
There was a suspicious lack of Ray J footage featured in the CBB updates from the house yesterday (Tuesday), which eventually led to the announcement that he had indeed “left”.
Confirmation that Kim Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend and sex tape co-star had departed from the series came from a Channel 5 spokesperson who refused to admit the reason behind the shock exit.
However, TMZ reported that Ray J was made to leave the CBB digs to be taken to hospital after incidents of “extreme tooth pain”.
The article stated: “[…] a dentist came to the set, gave Ray eight painkillers, four of which he was to take immediately and the remaining four the next morning.
“Ray woke up Tuesday in unbearable pain, took the remaining four pills and then pleaded for help. We’re told producers agreed to take him to the hospital but on the way out of the house he blacked out.”
Ray J has now spoken up about his exit for himself and has lashed out at producers for overlooking his pain.
He complained: “I’ve been complaining about my tooth for three and half a days.
“It got to the point where me and some of the housemates felt like was I being ignored…
“We took petitions to say we wouldn’t do any more tasks until Ray J gets his tooth fixed.”
Ray J explained how the pain eventually made him black out which forced bosses to take action and remove him from the house. He was taken to hospital where he was treated immediately and made a speedy recovery.
“I end up in the hospital, 45 minutes and I’m cool, I’m feeling fine and ready to go back in the house and they won let me back in.
“I’m really hurt by it because it sucks because I was having such a good time.”
Ray J admitted he felt “really sad” to be denied the opportunity to return to the house and labelled the decision “unfair”.
Asked if he would sue Channel 5 in order to get his rumoured $1 million fee, Ray said: “I never like to do that… but this is just not fair… put me back in the house.”
Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly at 9pm on Channel 5.
