$1M Forfeited as Ray J Quits Celebrity Big Brother
Ray J has left Celebrity Big Brother after spending just over a week in the house.
According to TMZ, the 35-year-old singer is currently in hospital receiving treatment for “extreme tooth pain” and is claiming the show’s bosses ignored his requests to get checked over by a medical professional.
Sources connected to Ray J, said producers initially didn’t believe him and ignored his complaints,ordering him to continue shooting the show, as the pain became unbearable.
The next day, cast members felt the situation was so bad they refused to continue shooting until Ray got medical help.
TMZ learnt the next day a dentist came to the set, gave Ray 8 painkillers, 4 of which he was to take immediately and the remaining 4 the next morning. Ray woke up Tuesday in unbearable pain, took the remaining 4 pills and then pleaded for help. Producers agreed to take him to the hospital but on the way out of the house he blacked out.
Sources say he’s been kicked off the show and the $1 million promised him seems far-fetched.
He is said to have been suffering with the pain for three days and has been complaining to his housemates so much that they refused to continue filming until he was given medical help.A dentist reportedly gave Ray four painkillers to take straight away and another four to have the next morning but the pain was still unbearable and producers agreed he could attend hospital.
And it has been claimed that Ray blacked out on his way to the hospital, where he is currently receiving treatment for an abscessed tooth, a cracked filling and a severe gum problem.
