On Thursday (Sept. 30), Ray J became a trending topic on Twitter after people just discovered that he was Brandy’s little brother.
Earlier this week, the “I Wanna Be Down” singer took to Instagram to show off her brother’s new massive tattoo that he got of her first name. “This is real love,” she captioned a screenshot of the two on Facetime. “I couldn’t have asked for a better brother. I love you @rayj #bestfriends #rayjXbrandy #rayjsis #rayjsister.”
Her post apparently shocked a lot of people who did not know that the two were siblings, prompting the “One Wish” singer to be trending on social media all day. A lot of fans were confused about how people did not know the two stars were related, seeing as though Ray J starred in “Moesha” with his sister, was featured in her visuals for “Best Friend” and has the same last name as she does.
Twitter user @NopeNotEbs tweeted, “Me blocking everyone tweeting that they *just* found out Ray J and Brandy are siblings.”
