Man, I dont even discuss that cos theres so much happening with that and were so far past that where were both doing really well, were eating well, were living good and for me.. Ray J says, before Richie cuts in, You hit it first. Getty You know, we make money, we spend money, but to me its all about family, man, and I love my family, Ray J replies, diplomatically.

They cheated me in the 1996 Olympic Games and I received a bronze medal when I knew in my heart I deserved the gold. My Aunt who lived with me sadly died of AIDS. Seven of us used to be crammed in a one bedroom apartment with no hot water. Through it all, I always knew God had my back.

But, we asked Elliott, do these issues merit some kind of psychological diagnosis? Would Ray J be able to pin down what’s wrong with him with a trip to a good shrink? It’s funny we ask that, Elliott explained, as that there’s currently a feverish debate in the psychological community about grief being included in the next edition of what essentially amounts to the encyclopedia of psychology, the DSM [Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders]. “The new DSM has grief as a mental health disorder with depression, which we who work in the field of grief have been saying, No, grief is a natural process.
