Ray J’s publicist originally released a statement claiming:

Ray J has been in a Las Vegas area hospital since the early morning of Monday, May 21, and will remain there for treatment for exhaustion and jet lag…

But as Ray J was just released from the hospital, his publicist has sent out a new statement with some disturbing news about the singer.

Ray J has been released from the hospital in Las Vegas and is back home in Los Angeles following an extensive battery of tests to make sure that he did not have a blood clot in his lungs which is potentially a deadly condition that can occur following a long haul plane flight.

It is the same condition that took the life of hip-hop legend Heavy D last year. Ray J had arrived in Vegas Sunday following a 32 hour round trip from China and four hour drive to Las Vegas.

Hope you rest up, homie!
