Ray J was hospitalized yesterday after blacking out on the set of Celebrity Big Brother in the UK, and now we have full details about what went down from the man himself.
The reality star FaceTimed in to TMZ to explain that an untreated tooth condition caused him to faint on set, and he was taken to the hospital and fixed up in no time. But the drama didn’t stop there.
In the video, Ray J explained that he had been trying to get producers to find him some treatment for his tooth for days before he blacked out. “It got to the point where some of the housemates in the house felt like I was being ignored. We took petitions to say we’re not doing anymore tasks until Ray J ‘s tooth gets fixed,” he says.
He continued, “I’ve got a cracked tooth where I need a filling fixed. I’ve got a gum coming over my other tooth and I’m in a lot of pain. So after three and a half days with all this pain, they decided to take me out but I blacked out. I end up in the hospital. For 45 minutes, they give me some nutrition and I eat some McDonalds and I’m cool, I’m literally fine.”
But now, he says, he might be out of a job. “I’m ready to go back into the house and they won’t let me back in and I’m really hurt by it because I felt like I was doing well and connecting with the British public and it just s**ks because I was having such a good time. And for me, being ignored about my tooth, I blanked out and I’m still not in the dentist but I can’t go back on the show so I’m going back to the hotel.”
Ray J is low-key threatening to sue the show if they don’t let him back on. “I’d never like to do that because I’m a producer as well and I like to be on the same page with everybody. But this is just not fair and if I have to take those precautions, I will,” he says.
He continued, “I don’t even care about my tooth, put me back in the house and let me work. This isn’t right. It’s wrong bro, it’s wrong. I’m going to drive myself to the dentist and get my tooth fixed and then pull back up to the house and try to get back in.”
It’s not clear if Ray J’s axing will get in the way of his million dollar payday for participating in the show.
