Ray J is opening up about why he’s filed for divorce from Princess Love in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
On Monday, he officially filed for divorce, but it appears it may have been an impulse decision, as on Tuesday, he said he really hasn’t “had a chance to sit back and think about it.”
“You know, I love her, and I love my babies, and it’s just personal, but she knows how I feel about her,” Ray J said. “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.”
This came after Princess initially filed for divorce in May, but pulled the petition two months later.
“It was just how I felt at the time. I didn’t really talk to nobody about it,” Ray J 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 said. “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.”
The couple share 2-year-old daughter Melody and 8-month-old son Epik and have broken up and rekindled multiple times in the public eye.
Last November, Princess said on Instagram that she “didn’t wanna be married anymore” after claiming Ray J left her and their daughter stranded in Las Vegas while pregnant. They seemingly got back together.
“It’s important for us to be great parents first,” he said. “Then, relationships flow after.”
“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 think. I’ll sacrifice all my happiness for my kids,” Ray J said. “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.”
