Ray J On Filing For Divorce From Princess Love: I Want To Make Sure Everybody Is Happy

Ray J is breaking his silence and opening up about why he filed for divorce from his wife Princess Love after four years of marriage. During a recent interview Ray J, born William Ray Norwood Jr, shared that he hasn’t had an opportunity to truly “sit back and think about it” since submitting his divorce petition to the court. He also shared that he still loves Princess Love, but divorce is what’s best for them. He said, 

“You know, I love her and I love my babies and it’s just personal, but she knows how I feel about her. I just think that I want to make sure everybody is happy, that everybody enjoys life and that this can help her smile more and enjoy who she is and enjoy her life. You know, sometimes it’s the best thing to do.”

Ray J, 39, also shared that he wishes the best for Princess Love moving forward, even if that means she finds love with someone that isn’t him. He said, 

“It’s still so early, I really don’t know what’s going to happen, how it happens, but I just want to make sure that my babies and my Princess is in a great place mentally and that they can enjoy life.” 

He added,

“My wife, if there’s somebody better out there that she wants to be with, then I have to respect that as well. But hey, I don’t know… I can’t say too much, but I love you, Princess. That’s what I can say.”

As previously reported, news initially broke about Ray J filing for divorce earlier this week. This isn’t the first time that the celebrity couple appeared to be on thin ice. This past May, Princess also filed for divorce but later dismissed her own filing. 

Ray J and Princess married in 2016 and have two children together. During his interview, Ray J said that he hopes they can remain, friends, if they’re not able to work things out. 

“Even if we don’t make it, we still have to be with each other a lot, because we have a baby, so we’re together for life. Happiness is important…I’ll sacrifice all my happiness for my kids.”

He continued,

“With that said, we’ll just have to wait and see [what the future holds], but I want to make sure that they’re in a good space, and that she’s in a great space throughout this journey as parents as well.”

He added,

“It’s important for us to be great parents first. Then relationships flow after.”
