Ray J is the younger brother of singer and actress Brandy and he considers her to be her rise or die. With all the drama, many wonder how his family, specifically Brandy, are feeling about things.

During the first season of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, Brandy appeared in one scene with Ray J to get clarity on the status of his relationship with Princess. At the time, the couple had been dating for a little under a year and already experienced tons of drama.

Love also came under scrutiny from Brandy and Ray J’s mother, who was in opposition to their marriage as they itched closer to walking down the aisle. She warned her son to have a prenuptial agreement, while Brandy supported Ray J’s decision to do away with one. Brandy was even a bridesmaid in their 2016 wedding.

Marital bliss between Ray J and Love didn’t last long. While Love was pregnant with their first child, they battle it out online. Love even removed Ray J’s last name from her Instagram handle, which did not sit well with Brandy.

Both Ray J and Love have kept fans updated on the status of their relationship since the public fallout. Despite several family moments – including them spending the holidays together as a family, their baby show to celebrate their second child, and the birth of their son Epik – they have maintained that they are separated and focused solely on co-parenting. YouTuber Tasha K alleged that Love confided in her that she intends to divorce Ray J.

Brandy and Ray J co-hosted the daytime talk show, The Talk, and Brandy gave her opinion on the series.

“I have a soft spot for Ray J, so it’s very hard to hear his life, you know, all over social media and television, you know, it’s difficult,” she explained. “And I just feel some things should be dealt in private, so it won’t be a lot of people in his comments and business and Princess’ business. I think that everybody doesn’t have to have a say in what is going on in your life.”

Ray J said things between him and Love remain strained but he’s hoping they are able to reconcile. 

Brandy maintained that she has nothing but love for her sister-in-law and remains optimistic that Love and Ray J are able to work things out.
