As Kim Kardashian returns to the spotlight on social media, her ex, Ray J, can’t stop talking about the reality star. The musician and TV personality is currently a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother where the topic of their relationship and infamous sex tape has come up more than once.
On Thursday night’s episode, Ray J was asked by singer Stacy Francis about his romance with Kardashian, which lasted from 2003 to 2006.
When Francis told Ray J that she though Kardashian had been “really really” in love with him, he replied, “Nah, but she was a player though.”
Francis, who knows both Ray J’s sister Brandy and Kardashian, said, “She was not a player. She was crying her eyes out over you!”

Ray J continued to disagree about the nature of the split, adding, “Put it like this, we were both players. We were both cheaters.”
But his claims didn’t seem to convince Francis or some of the house’s other occupants.
“I don’t believe that about her,” Francis said. “Because I remember her being very heartbroken over you. I think she really loved you very much.”

Ray J went on to note that he’s never run into Kardashian since their 2006 split or the subsequent release of their sex tape in 2007. He noted that he listens to her husband Kanye West’s music “all the time,” but added, “I don’t know him.”
In 2013, Ray J released the track “I Hit It First,” which appeared to be a direct dig at West.
This certainly isn’t the first time Ray J has brought up his ex on the British reality show. Watch the clip below to see his crass reference to their sex tape during the premiere.
