According to his rep, Ray J needs some down time.
The 31-year-old recording artist was in Vegas over the weekend for a product launch party as well as Sunday's Billboard Music Awards, and found himself in the hospital early on Monday suffering from exhaustion, his spokesperson tells CNN.
He's still in the hospital, "and will remain there for treatment for exhaustion and jet lag," his rep adds.
Although it's been reported that stress from a rumored verbal tiff with Pat Houston, sister-in-law of the late Whitney Houston, over seating arrangements at the Billboard awards played a role, his rep says that's not a factor, and neither is alcohol or other substances.
It seems Ray J arrived in Vegas to host a party for the Prince Reigns Hair Serum, which he's endorsing, on the heels of a "32-hour round trip from China where he performed a concert and had meetings regarding a new business," his rep says. "Upon landing, he immediately drove four hours to Las Vegas for the two events."
TMZ reports that Ray J was found "extremely disoriented" in the early hours of Monday morning in his hotel room, and was immediately taken in to the hospital. Ray J's rep didn't indicate how long he'd need to stay for treatment.
