Kanye West and Ray J have had a rivalry over Kim Kardashian and have taking jabs at each other over music. Love and Hip Hop Hollywood stars Ray J and Princess Love tied the knot recently and their wedding is likely to air on the show that debuts next week.
According to Hollywood Life, sources tell the publication that Kanye mocked their wedding and took jabs at the reality star.
“Kanye can’t believe Ray J found a woman who actually wants to be married to him,” a source close to the Mr. West told HollywoodLife.com.
“Kanye laughed at the pictures he saw of Ray J trying to be so royal and regal with his imitation Coming To America getup, trying to be the Prince of Zamunda like Eddie Murphy. Ray will never be on the status of Kanye and his only claim to fame is for a mistake Kim [Kardashian] made with him years ago,” the source told the publication.

Kim Kardashian came into the spotlight when a sex tape featuring Ray J was leaked. Ray J is a well-known singer and Kim was only known as Paris Hilton’s friend at the time. Her surname was also familiar to the public due to her father’s relationship with O.J. Simpson.
Ray J has since taunted Kanye by making a song “I Hit It First,” and Kanye responded on his latest album The Life of Pablo, acknowledging that they both once loved the same woman then brags about his wealth. Hollywoodlife writes that their sources close to Kanye revealed that the “Stronger” rapper doesn’t want Ray J to mention Kim’s name in the future.
“Hopefully now that Ray’s married, he will keep Kim and Kanye’s name out of his mouth and hopefully grow up and stop being a little child throwing tantrums like he’s one of Kanye’s children.”
Kanye West seems to be the one bringing up Ray J and Kim’s relationship recently. Yeezy also put a depiction of Ray J in his “Famous” video, which featured Taylor Swift, Chris Brown, Rihanna and George W. Bush lying naked in bed.
According to Kanye, he called Ray J to seek approval of his song “Highlights” where he mentions the singer by name.
The sextape with Ray J was recorded in 2003 and leaked in 2007. Despite the video being almost 10 years old, Kim’s popularity means that it has not stopped selling.
In 2014, seven years after the release of the tape, TMZ reported that Ray J gave Kanye and Kim his royalty check as a wedding gift. The publication reports that four months of revenue came to about $50,000.
Kim and Kanye has two children – North West and Saint West. It is reported that Kanye will like to have more children with his wife.
In the trailer for Love and Hip Hop Hollywood, it was revealed that Ray J’s mother was not 100 percent behind his wedding to Princess Love. She demanded that Ray J gets a prenuptial agreement. However, it is unclear how the “One Wish” singer reacted to his mother’s demands.
Princess Love used to date Floyd Mayweather and Ray J was friends with the undefeated boxer at the time. Ray has not divulged the exact status of his relationship with Floyd. However, many sources write that Princess and Ray J pursued the relationship behind his back, thus ending their friendship.
Kanye West is yet to make a public comment about Ray J’s wedding, and it is unknown if he would repay the jab by sending Ray a wedding gift of his own.
