Princess Love has announced she is leaving Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood to be a stay-at-home mother to her and Ray J's first child, Melody Love Norwood.

The former dancer announced her departure from the reality TV show on her Instagram page over the holiday weekend.

"Thank you for all of your support over the years but I will no longer be a part of Love and Hip Hop," she wrote to her 2.5 million followers.

Many of her followers were supportive of her decision to remain at home with her daughter while her husband, Ray J, is the bread winner.

"Moving on to bigger and better things. Remain focused," one IG user wrote.

Another user wrote, "So proud of u. #growth".

Princess Love, 34, began her career as a dancer and a model who appeared on the cover of SMOOTH magazine.

She and Ray J, 38, tied the knot in in August 2016. Love once dated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., and the "Sexy can I" singer was once besotted with the late singer Whitney Houston.

Love was born in Oakland, CA., and graduated from Texas Southern University and the International Academy of Design and Technology.

She welcomed her first child, Melody, last year. The infant celebrated her 1st birthday on May 23.

Love reportedly told friends she was tired of the Hollywood lifestyle. She said she prefers to be a stay-at-home mom so her daughter can grow to be an emotionally stable child.

The couple is reportedly working on having another child before her window of opportunity closes.

    Princess petty ass is my biiiiitch! ??? Love her ! I'm sure those LHH checks ain't nowhere near what the cast members make it seem like. Renting cars, homes, clothes jewelry, body parts and teeth. I just can't. I wonder why Princess stopped dating Floyd? Because um.... he has way more money than Ray J and Ray J is a trifling ass Capricorn. However, Floyd does have multiple kids and baby mama's so idk...

  • Renee26

    Ummm I think house wife has been her job title all along... The only difference is cameras following her around.

    I wonder if Brandy will carry the new baby for them too

  • Myopinion

    Good for her, that is definitely a good move.

  • Renee26

    Floyd isn't going to settle down with anybody... She found a sucka in Ray J. He's no prize either tho... I'll never forget him pushin her into that pool

  • Guest

    Good for her. Hate those shows.

  • Coy little wink

    Is it really about who has the most money or who treats you better?

    At least she's a wife now...

  • Coy little wink

    I really thought Brandy had her own baby ?

  • JENNYJONES1

    RAY J NEEDS NO DNA TEST WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR BABY. SHE'S A NORWOOD THROUGH & THROUGH. PRETTY BABY..........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Myopinion

    That baby is sooooo cute, she looks just like Ray J's mother

  • MsSapphire9800

    Really...what working skills do she have anyway....announcing she will be a stay at home mom...she has been that since the day she gave birth to her cute little fatty. Dancer or stripper...I thought she was Mayweather stripper..are we giving her a fancy title because of her nasty ass husband.

  • Gloria

    Good for her. She is making her child a priority over the ratchetness. I’m hoping that these shows get cancelled soon.

  • Renee26

    We haven't seen it... Issa secret baby but she's proud of the other one?? Nope I'm not buying it.

    She denied being pregnant the whole time then dropped the bump around the same time their baby was born. She was hella pregnant and never made an announcement or shared her bundle of joy. Ray J admitted they had trouble conceiving although when the fellas got their swimmers tested his were the strongest... That implies the issue lies with Princess.

  • Renee26

    Looks just like his momma ?

  • tia

    Good for her. Both mommy and daughter are absolutely gorgeous!!

  • Logan Roberts

    And Floyd was a trifling ass Pisces ?

  • Coy little wink

    Issa secret baby or issa secret surrogate. Neither one makes sense to me butthen again it's hollyweird there's no logic there ?

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns

    you throw a drink in my face im pushing u into a pool too https://media0.giphy.com/media/Tid3JhE6rTe4o/giphy.gif

  • Renee26

    Lol... I can see them seeking help to conceive... The denial about it is what I don't understand. It's a beautiful gift IMO

  • Renee26

    Ion think men should put hands on women... He coulda wiped his face and walked away from her...forever. She was toxic too in her actions... Somebody should be the adult

  • Trace da Ace

    ummmm....stay at home mom?? isnt that what she was already doing?? no shade...but for real tho...did not know she had a "job"...hell she was barely on the show the past season...but oh well....do you boo....the show is getting waaayyyy to ratchet anyways...but for some reason...I can't stop watching it....smdh

  • Kimberly King

    I try to tell women that ALL male earth signs are the bitch-made dudes of the zodiac. All 3 of them. But Capricorn men are the worst. Taurus men are just emotional ... but Capricorn and Virgo men ? I stay far away from their punk asses. I've had nothing but bad experiences with them. Once that money dries up, Floyd will see the error of his ways.

  • Faithz

    Beautiful Baby, and Princess is a Beautiful Woman as well.

  • Renee26

    Hollywood is the weakest one... It'll be cancelled soon

  • Kimberly King

    Pisces men are Kings. I'm biased when it comes to water sign men. ?

  • Trace da Ace

    yeah..I agree.....and I hope they do not let Tia Marie back on...cause she irks my soul.....as well as Hazel E....with her bird ass...smdh.....oh and cant forget K. Michelle with her VERY annoying ass....hell scrub the whole cast!!!

  • Vonn

    Floyd is abusive trash.

  • Kimberly King

    Oh and to the person who responded but I blocked (hence why I didn't respond), I'm pretty sure you said something idiotic in the first place. ?? Ugly. Y'all be thirsty AF to get a ring that you'll compromise security. I cannot. I shall not. I've been proposed to twice. One of them had money, but was a complete psycho. Sooo I should have married him just say I'm a wife? Lol luckily my current bae has big money, is sane and makes me feel so safe and secure. When he proposes I definitely will be saying yes.

  • Renee26

    ? I agree men with both of those signs have been a piece of work to deal with for me too.

    To each their own...eventually they find somebody that can put up with their antics. IJS it's easy to control someone that rides your coat tails and shapes their entire world around you ?

  • Topic Influencer

    You have come a long way Princess since you moved on from being a trampoline for Floyd. Kudos and Godspeed to you

  • Renee26

    With brillo pads ?

  • Kimberly King

    I would have attempted murder in front of those VH1 cameras had that been me who was pushed in the pool by "my man." Lol dead ass

  • Logan Roberts

    Bless your heart.

  • Renee26

    ? he tired... He works super hard

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    oooh weee! cutie pie with the fat thighs! she is adorably yummy, LOL!

    (@Coy don't even come in here with them jumping ovaries, smh)

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Taurus men emotional?
    No, we just don' give a crap and you can't make us show any emotions and that's what gets to your a$$es.
    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • Kimberly King

    Oh is he ? Didn't know that. Ray J ain't sh*t either. Anyway, I was with someone who was wealthy but verbally, mentally and emotionally abusive. He proposed and I turned him down. Telling me I'll never run into another ninja with the kind of money he had. Lol he had a high ranking position as a state trooper. I fled to Texas and never looked back. So if Floyd is on that tip I definitely don't blame her for leaving.

  • Dowoop

    Lmao ??

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    Smart girl. She got the man and the baby and the life she wants, mad respect for her wanting to get out of the rat race and focus on her family.

  • Bashi22

    Baby look just like Ray J Mother

  • Kimberly King

    Taurus men bow down to me. They literally worship the ground I walk on. My current man is a Taurus. I actually love Taurus men. Regardless of their emotional rants, possessive ways, random bursts of anger, etc. I don't have to make Taurus men show emotion... it shows automatically. And Taurus men care PLENTY. lol but I think it's cute. Out of the 3 earth signs, Taurus men are the only ones I can deal with.

  • Kimberly King

    Oh no hunnie. Bless YOURS.

  • Bashi22

    I am super happy she runaway from him to RayJ arms

  • Kimberly King

    If a guy isn't a Taurus or a water sign, I pretty much stay away. Even though I know water sign men are sooooo emotionally unhealthy. Especially Scorpio and Pisces. Pisces are such liars. It's sickening.

  • the guest

    As it should be.

    Blessing to her motherhood and family!

  • Marlika

    Bye ??

    You too old to be on TV fighting anyhow?????

  • CardiB’sAbs

    That baby looks just like her meemaw which I find hilarious bc meemaw and Princess didn’t get along. My friend fell out with her mom when she was pregnant and the daughter came out looking just like her too.

  • Blak

    But she was already a stay at home mom....

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You're dealing with some weak Taurus men then maybe even boys.

  • hottlanta

    I guess she trying 2 do the new upgrade edition by having nannies n housekeepers. She aint quitting just 2 push a vacumn around the house.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Floyd Mayweather's been arrested and convicted twice for domestic battery. She's better off being away from him, no matter how much money he has.

  • MrsSpice1

    Exactly!!

  • MrsSpice1

    She has her own business !! Prella cosmetics, shes more then that ! ?

  • MrsSpice1

    Yup running her own sht she has her own makeup line and had it before ray j and lhh! But ppl tend to focus on what they think they know already because everyone dont have to put all they business out there.

  • Kimberly King

    Sounds like you're the weak one babe. There's nothing wrong with catering to a woman.

  • Kimberly King

    If you read below, you'd see where I stated that I wasn't aware of that and agreed that she should stay away from an abuser. K thanks

  • Parent

    Happy for her. She is content with just being a mommy. I loved that feeling as well.

  • Parent

    sho does.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    ho-kay.
    So we both agree. I don't see what the problem is.

  • bb1812

    Good for her. The baby is soooo cute?

  • Panther Charleston

    Woo. She's beautiful. That pic with her and Ray J just oozes feminine energy. #thehoneytrap. Get'm, girl!
    (Clears throat). Now about staying home and focusing on raising that precious child: Yes. Very mature. Ray J may not make the best decisions, but at least he's chosen a woman whose got her head on straight. D

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Oh lort the norwood clan got her.

  • Tammie Reed

    oh ok, well congrats to her being a stay at home mommy lol.

  • jujumanji

    She was pretty pointless anyway so that makes sense.

  • http://welfareinfo.org angrysolo

    is she the one ray j threw a glass of water at? I don’t know. I applaud her, hopefully all others follow suit.

  • B.Loveitt

    Those who's relationships have lasted was because one or the other chose to fallback for awhile. But OMG THAT BABY!!!

  • B.Loveitt

    Naw she's always been busy well before LAHH.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Good for them!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    We have different definitions of 'weak'.
    Carry on.

  • B.Loveitt

    Everyday people have maids. My sister does because she ain't cleaning shyt while I'm gone. The guy I'm dating runs his own busy but Merry Maids is his BF. I don't like people in my crib so I told my sis please stop. We both travel all the time but I keep the crib show room ready. But when I'm gone 2wks or more she has them damn maids in there! I have OCD my crib looks like nobody lives there. I'll be glad when we get back in our house after this damn fire!!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Sometimes it the Quality Not the Quantity!!! I been there. I Have No Regrets.

  • imright

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I was like that with a Lt. Colonel in the military and one a Doctor.. Two true Nutty Buddies!!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Quality over Quantity for me!!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I'm a Woman and I Don't think Women should put Their Hands on Men!!! She could had Not thrown the drink, start Right there. Respect Is Earned!!!

  • BEANTOWN BULLI

  • Trace da Ace

  • Soon2BWife

    Idk but I know she's the one he pushed into the pool, on camera, on TV, and said , "bye" and walked off while she struggled to get out the pool fully dressed. ?????????

  • hottlanta

    U dont gave 2b rich 2 get a housekeeper 2 come by several times a month. I am sure she might have a live in housekeeper and nanny.

  • Renee26

    Calm down pimpin... I never said it was ok for women to put their hands on men or any of that other ish you're adding in with all them damn exclamation marks. Save that energy for the next mf...I said what I said ?

    I've raised MINE to steer clear of women that will put him in situations like that. IF he is ever faced with a woman jumping in his face mine will walk away...forever like he should.... He won't use it as an excuse to hit a woman like weak mf's do.

    We're only responsible for our own actions

  • GrambosTheHealer

    Good for her, but really who cares?

  • Renee26

    It wouldn't have been me cause I'm not about to be fighting over his cheating ways... I'd just exit stage left and move on... Gots no time

  • KcoolMuziq

    Princess is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Can't say I blame her. Yet she may want to have a little cash on the side in case RJ starts acting up.

  • Fire & Ice

    Good for her...leave that ratchedness alone. Baby girl is so cute ?

  • Fire & Ice

    Honestly princess and RJ look like brother and sister

  • jwoo250

    Same with Kandi lil boy. She didn't get along with Todd's mom rest her soul. And that baby came out looking just like his mama. Princess look just like Brandi and em' they all look alike.

  • jwoo250

    She sure does and Princess in denial she keep putting up her old baby pics comparing them to Melody's. No she look like Nana

  • leapyearpisces

    I ain't NOBODY trifling. I'm a sweetheart, long as I'm not tested. Im good peeps. :-).

  • leapyearpisces

    Nope Gemini men are the DEVIL incarnate.

  • Logan Roberts

    If you're a Pisces MAN then I'm talking to YOU. If not, stop responding everytime I say something about Pisces, because I meant what I said.

  • leapyearpisces

    Ummmm ok???? Because this my first time responding, and I wasn't even taking it seriously...but sense you want to be mean and hateful. I'll crawl back into my hole.

  • Bree

    Good for her. I'm sure she put alot of thought into it. And if it works for her and Ray J then I'm happy for them. Not sure if I want to be a stay at home mom when my husband and I have kids. I have given it thought though. Knowing my husband, he will probably bring the subject up!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I say everyone on Love and Hip hop need to stay home. That show is a train wreck especially since they fired Queen of messy Brooke Valentine. she was funny. lol

  • B.Loveitt

    Got that too but I was addressing the part about a vaccum/housecleaning.

  • Prince Jarmajesty II

    I no longer watch any of the LHH franchises though, it became so fake, I felt like it was a personal assault on my intelligence.

  • http://welfareinfo.org angrysolo

    that’s what i was thinking about. she flung the water at hym and he turnt and tossed her in the pool ?

  • Bashi22

    I know they want black men but don’t want their kids look like the black men mother. I still don’t care if she’s mix Princess she was one of Floyd Herms of women. She only smart to jump ship soon.

  • chan chan

    I’m happy for her!!!! They are really growing as a couple.

  • Soon2BWife

    Listen, a great TV moment!

  • hi-liter

    Just leave LHH and do something else. Niggas get to actin up and treating women differently when they don’t have an income.

  • Kimberly King

    I've noticed that men who hold positions of power are bat sh*t crazy. The luxury life ain't worth the BS. Try a principal! So far so good over here. We'll see what happens when he becomes superintendent of the ISD he currently works in. lol

  • Kimberly King

    And people in the comments are swearing up and down that Ray J is better. Lol an emotional and mental abuser is just as bad a physical one.

  • Kimberly King

    Ray J ain't quality, hun

  • Kimberly King

    Just over people and their sorry attempts to come for me. I guess a lot of these people didn't see the amount of embarrassment Ray J put my girl princess through on LHHH. Ray J is not where it's at. So I'm feisty with everyone today. Lol I like your input in the garden so no beef over here.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Look at princess love, looking like a real mom, :)

  • Strappyheels

    She’s one already??
    She’s ADORABLE!!!

    Princess is Beautiful!!

  • Blue

    I wish the rest of them would stay home.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Good. That means that she doesn't have a story line. RayJ''s cheating storyline is old so what else does she have? Always running around trying to fight on the show. She is too old.for that now. Good..grow up, be a mother and raise your daughter.

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    Yes Blue you're not alone, I agree

  • onelove

    good for her!! ray got about 30 mil in the bank!!! her lil coins they will not see...she needs to have another baby than...

  • http://thesinglewhitefemale.com Fefe

    Brooke Valentine was GREAT for the franchise. I'm sad to see she won't be back. Probably because she hid her pregnancy/daughter. You know Mona doesn't like secrets/missed opportunities.

  • blue skies

    who cares?

  • Karen Brady

    Okay...and....???

  • Karen Brady

    LMAOOOOO

  • Karen Brady

    !!!

  • parisjok

    he is rich and they are married with a kid so he is the cash on the side but she should still save
