Ray J and Princess Love at CES 2018 in Las Vegas

Ray J and his pregnant wife Princess Love displayed his folding electric scooter at the CES 2018 Gadgets show in Las Vegas on Thursday. The 36-year-old Love & Hip-Hop star responded to a $30 million lawsuit filed by a former business partner who claims Ray J stole his idea for the Scoot-E-Bike.

According to gossip tabloid TMZ, a businessman named Jean Paul sued Ray J, whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr.

Paul claims Ray J stole his idea for the bike and caused economic harm to his company through unfair competition.

Paul told TMZ he teamed with Ray J as a “celebrity endorser” and investor in 2015.

But Ray J’s lawyer, David Weintraub, told TMZ that Ray J owned the Scoot-E-Bike company outright. Weintraub told TMZ, “Scoot-E-Bike is 100% independently owned, financed, trademarked, marketed and promoted by Ray.

Paul said Ray J created his own company and began promoting the scooter at celebrity events in 2016. Ray also enlisted his wife, Princess, his sister, R&B singer Brandy Norwood, and his business-savvy mother, Sonja Norwood, to help him promote the bikes at industry parties.

The bike retails for $799 to $1,200 and is sold on Ray J’s website, Rayconglobal.com. The bike has a cruising speed of 20 mph and a range of 30 miles per charge.

The 100% electric bike is available in a variety of colors and features USB ports for charging smartphones.

    I like the bike. Good for him. I can see people riding it although biking isn’t my thing. He looks stressed and aged quickly a bit this last year. Congrats on that belly Princess! It looks good on you.

  • You Could Never

    Princess Love looks beautiful!! Congratulations on the baby ?? ?

  • thrift.store.jungle

    but is this woman’s government name “Princess Love”…

    if not she’s ridiculous for selecting this fairytale name as a stage name. if so her parents are insane for doing that to her. people don’t realize that their precious little angels will one day get bigger as adults and have to carry around foolish names.

  • pure_rachet

    I love RayJ. He is gorgeous and a loser all in 1!!

  • Shira Harding-James

    Indeed it is her name

  • pure_rachet

    She was a stripper. It’s her Stripper name.

  • Gloria

    Bike looks cool but my big ass wouldn’t dare even try to bear my weight on it! Look at those itty bitty wheels.

  • Rayne

    Folks steal all the time. I like Ray and his lady is cute.

  • Renee26

    LMAO

  • You Could Never

    I love how you stated this.

  • Courtney Wheeler

    not sure about the merits of the law suit but Ray J is a sneaky man. He and princess broke up so he registered the trademark on her name Princess Love. who does that? swindler.

  • justlooking

  • Phillybruh

    Did Brandy have her baby yet?

  • Ms.Vanilla

    At 20 mi per hr, who is supposed to ride that thing? An adult?

  • Ms Thang

    Brandi said that it’s her real name

  • SoulfulLove

    Is it me or does Princess Love resemble Brandy?

  • DAYWALKER (THE DAYDREAM!!!!!)

    WHY RECIPES??????

  • Reina1718

    Mhmm

  • Coy little wink

    I seent it a while ago

  • Dollface

    Yea, it’s her real name. She’s from Austin, TX. She was a hot commodity fitting the standards of the southern Texas mantra of “bad yellabone” – she was picked up by Slim Thug at a very young age and was the talk of the town, because she was known for him coming to the regular inner city of Austin (Purple Sage St) to pick Princess up. She then moved up the ranks to Floyd Mayweather. From him she landed in the nest of the Norwood family. How beautiful!

  • Yoni7

    Because if it’s good, they will try to capitalize off of it. That’s why when IF I do share a recipe, I leave an ingredient out. That way they’ll come and say “I made xyz…..but it didn’t taste like yours.” And it NEVER will, bih. Won’t be trying to flip MY stuff for YOUR profit. lbs

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yep, people will take your ideas, especially , If they have the resources to move forward without you!

  • Yoni7

    Man lissen. Sorta going through this right now. A book is being written and ole girl is asking all MY ideas. No bih, it’s yourn, handle it.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I respect an honest hustle, and if he got the idea from dude, that happens when you share your ideas or prototype.

    A lot people have great ideas, but really have no interest or wherewithal to make it happen!

    At the same time, it would be very difficult for him to admit he stole or borrowed the idea because dude’s lawyer would go for half, and his contribution might not be worth the asking price!

    I hope it takes off because we need more and more Black entrepreneurs, successful inventors and innovators instead of celebrities for our kids to look up to or model!

  • RAY J IS A THIEF!!

    I believe RayJ stole this guys’ idea………..Ray J hasn’t a honest inventive bone in his body.

  • jazmine

    So moneice really retarded?

  • jazmine

    Nah it’s her government

  • DAYWALKER (THE DAYDREAM!!!!!)

    WHY GIVE THEM THE RECIPE AT ALL IF YOU ARE GOING TO LEAVE OUT AN INGREDIENT? IT’S ONLY A RECIPE. EVEN IF YOU WERE TO INCLUDE ALL THE INGREDIENTS, IT STILL WON’T TASTE LIKE YOURS ANYWAY!!!!!!

  • Yoni7

    Because they asked. I’m not THAT cruel.

  • Peeeeeetttyyyy

    That is so petty. You mine as well not tell them at all. There are millions of recipes online. It’s not that serious. And if you afraid of someone capitalizing off of food then capitalize off it first. But you won’t. Bye petty.

  • bemetoo

  • kenzieangel07

    So I find it strange that he was already promoting this bike back in 2015 and not until he lands a 30 mil deal in 2017 does this guy pop up??? Not saying it wasn’t a joint idea or whatever but RJ promoted this on vh1 2 years ago under raytronics….Either way not my money so why actually give AF….It’s ugly and to small for my derriere!!

  • BadAss Will

    I’m glad princess pregnant, now she can shut the hell up.

  • kekeb

    They (Ray and Princess) are cute. Glad they wed

  • kekeb

    Lies!!! He invented fame of the Kardashians

  • kekeb

    Yeah she does. Even Brandy said it

  • kekeb

    U talkin about Quad cookbook?

  • kekeb

    Good point Courtney Wheeler! Maybe he was thinking ahead. Had he done that with the Kardashians, he’d be very wealthy

  • kekeb

    lmao!! Sounds like the inside of a ghetto book leaf.

  • thrift.store.jungle

    come ALL the way thru w/the receipts! thank u ? i’ve lazily wondered for a while about her name.

  • MythCalledLove

    Is that MCM on the first bike? He must hv struck a deal. He should do that get different designers to design the bike.

  • bemetoo

    well brandy looks like a moose

  • Sinny

    ????

  • Ladyvil

    Ray J is a sodomite an his wife a tranny like Brandi!

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Yes indeed

  • shay

    Princess hands ???

  • Yoni7

    No, not at all. I am such a fan of Quad. You saying she stole somebody’s recipes and is turning into to coins?

  • Yoni7

    Who’s not blessed? Who’s stressed? About what? Your comment correlates to what exactly? You’re right, the devil sure does stay busy.

  • Yoni7

    And YOU’RE pressed. Mine as well? WTF is a “mine as well”? Mine as well what? Shouldn’t it say “MIGHT AS WELL”. Capitalize off a couple books, mutt. YOU are worried about the wrong thing.

  • Tennessean

    how old is she?

  • Tennessean

    It’s cool you are not alone.

  • Yoni7

    Not alone in what? LOL

  • Tennessean

    “Because if it’s good, they will try to capitalize off of it. That’s why when IF I do share a recipe, I leave an ingredient out. That way they’ll come and say “I made xyz…..but it didn’t taste like yours.” And it NEVER will, bih. Won’t be trying to flip MY stuff for YOUR profit. lbs” GIRL!!!

  • shay

    A smooth 55 lol

  • Yoni7

    And you see folks mad about it. They better go’ne somewhere. If it was as easy as Googling the recipe, then they wouldn’t need mine, right? Which means, MINE IS DIFFERENT! Not to be duplicated. The one’s that are mad about it are probably the one’s that steal’em. LOL

  • Rhyme and Reason

    You know the bizness! Books turn into movie scripts, OK!

    I want to write a book, but I’ve decided to self-publish, and later look for a book agent and publisher!

    To sell a movie script, all the person really needs it the gist of what you’re writing (ideas)! Or, use one of these writing tools that can basically help you write your book!

    You’re woke, and no means no!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    People who want to share recipes do, post them or write cookbooks!

    But, I read the comment sections as well as the recipes of the people who tried it, and most or many people don’t get it right!

    Now you got me thinking that perhaps, these individuals also leave off ingredients and steps! It makes sense…

  • Yoni7

    Thing is, because of MY eating habits, I make up a lot of stuff. I very rarely follow recipes/instructions to the T. So I don’t won’t get mad if someone leaves off something, for the most part, I’m going to change it anyway. LOL

  • Yoni7

    Thank you. It’s a simple children’s book but I’ll still let her have that. But when I come out with the one for my Grand-Sun and nephews, she bet NOT try it! LOL

  • shay

    A smooth 55…

  • Tennessean

    BWAHAHAHA…
