Ray J will reportedly get the money he's owned from his time in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house - despite leaving before being evicted due to a painful tooth
Ray J will reportedly still get paid for his stint on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The 'One Wish' hitmaker walked out of the infamous abode earlier this week in order to seek medical assistance for an infected tooth and, although it was believed he wouldn't get his pre-agreed cheque for breaking the terms and conditions, bosses have said he will get the "balance due" and that it will be "in the high six figures", according TMZ.
The 35-year-old singer threatened to sue bosses after he begged them to let him back into the abode following his treatment but they refused and axed him from the show.
Asked if he is considering suing, he said recently: "I'd never like to do that because I'm a producer as well and I like to be on the same page with everybody. But this is just not fair and if I have to take those precautions, I will.
"I don't even care about my tooth, put me back in the house and let me work. This isn't right. It's wrong bro, it's wrong. I'm going to drive myself to the dentist and get my tooth fixed and then pull back up to the house and try to get back in."
Ray J sparked outrage earlier this week when he rocked up to Barnet General hospital in London and managed to jump a queue of 40 people in A&E to get his tooth seen to.
Tom, from Watford, Herts - who had rushed his 79-year-old mother to A&E because she was suffering from an acute chest infection - explained: "It was jam-packed with about 40 people in the waiting room and I spoke to one ambulance driver who was sat outside waiting to take his patient in. He said they had been waiting five hours to be seen. Then this private mini cab arrived and Ray J got out with his security who covered his head with a hood. He was taken straight through."
