The 40-year-old was hospitalized earlier this week for pneumonia and doctors initially feared he was also battling Covid-19.

His manager, David Weintraub, previously confirmed to People that the star is “in the hospital for pneumonia, but it’s not the contagious kind.”

“(The doctors) wanted to keep him there a couple extra days to watch him,” Weintraub added, sharing that Ray J underwent “multiple COVID tests, and he tested negative for all of them.”

Ray J told TMZ he was “still struggling” with his health on Wednesday morning.

The singer married Princess in 2016 and they share two children – Melody Love, three, and Epik Ray, 21 months.
