Brandy Norwood appeared in the latest episode of Fox’s hit show, Star, and she did a fantastic job. Many are hoping that the part will become recurrent.
As the focus returned to her career, some fans of the R&B diva are still convinced that she is pregnant. The rumor has been going around for months, and if it was true, Brandy would have started showing and this is not the case.
Brandy’s brother, reality TV star, and entrepreneur, Ray J, has stepped out to deny the chatter. Although he is out in the media denying the pregnancy, the 37-year-old TV personality admitted that he too thought Brandy was pregnant at some point.
He said that the fact Brandy put on a little weight in the past few months contributed to the confusion.
Ray J explained: “You know, she likes the weight. I had to ask [her] too cause too many pictures… And she said, ‘I like my weight.’ You know, she’s just enjoying her weight.”
There is a reason that pushed Ray J to clear the situation — some people thought Brandy was carrying his baby with wife Princess Love.
The couple had some trouble conceiving their first child together, and this sparked a bunch of wild theories among fans. Eventually, Princess got pregnant, and those people had to move on.
Ray J stated: “Someone said she’s having OUR baby — that she’s our surrogate. And I’m like, that would be love, okay? That would be the ultimate hookup if my sister was able to take time out of her life and have our baby. It’s a little outrageous, but those are just some of the things that happen in the press. For me, I just kind of chuckle it off.”
The “Sexy Can I” singer is slowly moving away from his own drama with Princess after he was reportedly caught cheating. In January, she posted some messages on social media that seemed to confirm the allegations.
Princess wrote: “The problem is women think he will change, he won’t. And men make the mistake of thinking she will never leave, she will.”
She added: “If you’re going to stay with a man, do it because that’s what you truly want. Never stay because of children. When they grow up, then what. To me, for better or worse doesn’t mean cheating, that’s like saying stay with a man that beats you.”
Princess’ statements on the networking channels infuriated some members of Ray J’s family, including Brandy, who opted not to attend her baby showers.
