Ray J hospitalized for exhaustion, jet lag

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.

    Heywood, as if we black people do not have enough problems with being treated minorities, and Latinos also have that problem, you as a Latino should be ashamed to make a comment like this. Maybe you should bond and realise that you as a Latino endure your own ridicule as a "minority" without doing the same to another in a minority group. Shame on you!

    Why do people bother to read a news article and then turn around and ask, who is this person? Why bother to read the whole thing? And if anybody was watching the news about Whitney Houston when she died, then they must know who Ray J is. And most people even know who Brandy is, and Ray J is her brother. So ppl who have no life, stop hating and pretending you don't know who he is. He's an actor, a musician, and probably has more money than any of you would have in your lifetime.

    I hope Ray J gets better soon. He's a human being and I'm tired of people hating on others for no good reason.

      no one's necessarily hating, just asking what he could possibly be exhausted from is a legitimate question...I mean, there's a whole article about it.

        Yes Joe Blow, actually people are hating. And if you read the WHOLE article, you would see the explanation for his exhaustion. I'm sure there's more to it than that. I just don't understand why his hospitalization draws so many negative remarks.
