Ray J has drawn concern and skepticism after he shared very alarming posts on social media on Thursday night.
The 41-year-old, whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr., shared multiple posts via Instagram where he seemingly contemplated suicide.
Ray posted a video of himself very high above the ground and the caption read, “If it wasn’t 4 my Kids I would jump off and die tonight.”
In another post, the “One Wish” singer asks, “SHOULD I JUST JUMP off and end it rit. Now!!!????”
Ray J also took to his Instagram Story writing, “Trying to figure it out – maybe this life was an illusion – maybe the next life was my real reality.”
He has since deleted the posts and a source told TMZ that Brandy’s brother was drinking when he uploaded the posts onto social media.
The source also claims Ray was just “messing around” and he has not been hospitalized for any mental health concerns.
People have expressed concern for Ray J after his alarming posts and a few people are skeptical.
There are also those who empathize with him.
One person tweeted, “Whew…seeing Ray J’s post just reminded me that I’m coming up on the 3rd yr anniversary since I almost ended things. Oct 19th I cried out to God and thankfully He answered through my child. I still struggle daily but one day imma get off these antidepressants.”

Ray J’s alarming posts come on the heels of him publicly blasting Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian regarding the truth behind who really released their infamous sex tape.
Both Kim and Ray J were 21 years old when they filmed the tape while celebrating Kim’s birthday in Cabo.
20 years later, Brandy‘s brother is tired of being blamed for releasing the tape and he’s spilling the beans.
“I’ve sat in the shadows for over 14 years allowing the Kardashians to use my name, to abuse my name, make billions of dollars over a decade-and-a-half talking about a topic I’ve never really spoken about,” he said.
“I’ve never leaked anything. I have never leaked a sex tape in my life. It has never been a leak. It’s always been a deal and a partnership between Kris Jenner and Kim and me and we’ve always been partners since the beginning of this thing.”
UPDATE: Brandy took to social media and shared an adorable throwback photo of herself and Ray J.
The caption reads, “Need you bro @rayj ??”
I pray Ray J gets the help that he needs.
