After Ray J’s wife Princess Love announced she didn’t want to be married anymore, her husband made headlines when he was photographed without his wedding ring. Ray J defended himself Wednesday on The Wendy Williams Show, and the audience roared with laughter at his reason for taking off his ring.
"My hands was ashy," he told Wendy, "and I needed to put some lotion on. When I get up to the gate, I didn’t have no lotion. I’m looking for the lotion. Right there boom they got the picture."
The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star was photographed by TMZ Monday catching a flight in L.A. without his ring.
“When you black and you wash your hands after you go to the bathroom they get ashy,” Ray J continued. Wendy didn’t buy his reason, responding, “Any excuse is better than none.”
The marriage drama started when Princess Love accused her husband of stranding her and their baby, Melody, in Vegas. He admitted to Wendy that they had a fight because she rejected his wish for them to move from Los Angeles to Sin City.
The 38-year-old entertainer told Wendy that his wife convinced him not to move.
“I’m done with Vegas. I hate Vegas,” he declared. “Never again.”
Ray J was on the show to promote his new holiday movie, Dear Santa, I Need A Date, which airs Sunday at 7 p.m. on TV One.
