After a whirlwind weekend coming face-to-face with Whitney Houston's family and hosting an event in Las Vegas with Sophie Monk, Ray J was hospitalized for what we thought was merely jet lag and exhaustion.
Ray J's publicist originally released a statement claiming:
Ray J has been in a Las Vegas area hospital since the early morning of Monday, May 21, and will remain there for treatment for exhaustion and jet lag...
But as Ray J was just released from the hospital, his publicist has sent out a new statement with some disturbing news about the singer.
Ray J has been released from the hospital in Las Vegas and is back home in Los Angeles following an extensive battery of tests to make sure that he did not have a blood clot in his lungs which is potentially a deadly condition that can occur following a long haul plane flight.
It is the same condition that took the life of hip-hop legend Heavy D last year. Ray J had arrived in Vegas Sunday following a 32 hour round trip from China and four hour drive to Las Vegas.
We are glad to hear Ray J is back home and wish him a speedy recovery with some much-needed R&R!
