Brandy shared a message of support for her younger brother, Ray J, after his alarming social media posts of him contemplating taking his own life.
The 43-year-old singer and actress took to her Instagram account on Friday (Oct. 7) and posted a throwback picture of her and Ray J, 41. “Need you bro @rayj,” she wrote as the caption.
As previously reported by REVOLT, in a few videos that have since been deleted Thursday (Oct. 6) night, the “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” star appeared to be sitting on some kind of ledge as he zoomed into the moon. “If it wasn’t [for] my [kids], I would jump off and die tonight,” he wrote. Ray J shares two kids with Princess Love. A daughter, Melody Love, 4, and son, Epik Ray, 2.
Another video, which showed his feet dangling off the ledge, was captioned, “SHOULD I JUST JUMP off and end it [right]. Now!!!????” In his Instagram Story, the singer also added, “Trying to figure it out, maybe this life was a illusion. Maybe the next life was my real reality.” According to TMZ, a source told the news outlet that Ray J is “okay” and “doing fine.” He is apparently on vacation with Princess Love.
