Ray J is currently in the hospital after blacking out, and he’s blaming his recent Celebrity Big Brother gig for his health scare.
According to TMZ, the Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood star claims he was in extreme pain for several days and the folks at CBB ignored it, eventually kicking him out of the house.
The site reports that Ray J began experiencing “extreme tooth pain” three days ago and complained to his cast members and the show’s producers. However, according to TMZ’s sources, the producers thought he was lying at first and ignored his pleas.
They then ordered him to carry on with shooting his scenes for the reality show as the pain intensified.
Some of his cast members allegedly rallied around him as, according to sources, the next day, after seeing how bad Ray’s condition had gotten, they refused to continue shooting until he received some medical attention.
A dentist reportedly came to the set the next day and gave the singer-turned-reality star eight painkillers, four of which he was instructed to take immediately, and the rest for the next morning. Ray took the remaining four painkillers the next day after his toothache got worse, and it was then that the show’s producers agreed to take him to the hospital. However, on the way out, he reportedly blacked out.
Ray J is currently in the hospital suffering from an abscessed tooth, a cracked filling in another and a severe gum problem.
He’s reportedly been kicked off of the show.
There is no word yet on what this means for his reported $1 million pay day.
