And just that quick, the drama has become quite real. In response to Brandy’s message of love to her brother and sister-in-law, Princess Love is basically saying, “Save it.”
Guess there could be some truth to the initial report after all…
On Saturday, Princess Love and Ray J celebrated the upcoming arrival of their first child, a baby girl. But two people who were noticeably absent from the festivities were big sister Brandy and Ray J’s mother, Sonja Norwood.
According to a report from TMZ early this week, they claimed sources said that the women opted against going to the shower after having a disagreement with Princess the day before at a gender reveal party. The issue was supposedly over tweets Princess had shared following the rumors that Ray J was cheating and talk of marital strife. In those messages, she basically said you shouldn’t feel you have to stay with a man who can’t be faithful just because you share a child.
At the time, Sonja publicly chastised Princess.
“False accusations in a public forum deserves a PUBLIC APOLOGY,” she said on Instagram. “It takes a strong person to say sorry but a stronger person to show forgiveness. Proud of you @rayj–keeping standing for your belief!”
Princess and Ray J seemed to move past such a hump, but according to the TMZ story, Brandy and Sonja had not. The conversation allegedly didn’t go well between them and mom and big sis ended up being no-shows at the shower, an event that was documented by the Love and Hip Hop Hollywood production crew and attended by Ray’s father, Willie.
But Sonja and Brandy say that’s all a lie. Sonja shared video of Brandy performing in Virginia on Saturday, the day of the shower, and left it at that:
But as for Brandy, she took things a step further by confirming she had a prescheduled show she couldn’t get out of. She also let people know, “There is nothing here but love and no matter what anyone says we are family and we will always be.”
As for Princess and Ray J, they’re focusing on preparing for their daughter, who will be here sometime in the summer. Ray even made a song for their unborn child called, “4 My Baby,” as well as a video, which documents their multiple wedding ceremonies, their trips to the hospital for ultrasounds, the growth of the baby and more intimate moments. The upbeat song samples Fred Hammond’s classic gospel hit, “We’re Blessed.”
And since Brandy and Sonja aren’t the only ones who missed the shower, check out some photos from Saturday’s fun below, which was actually the couple’s second shower celebration:
