When Ray J finds himself trending on Twitter it’s usually not a good sign for him, but this time it was slightly less sensational than usual. The R&B singer retweeted his ex Kim Kardashian early on Wednesday morning, in a move that seemed to be heavy with implication, and it sent the social media site into a mini frenzy.
The tweet in question: Lol RT @KimKardashian: Keep your life in a positive perspective. We are not defined by our pasts.
It’s interesting, obviously, that Ray J choose to retweet this one of Kardashian’s gems, since their “past” includes the sex tape that made her famous. Of course, fans had a lot to say about it on Twitter, but Ray J explained his reasoning in an interview with Power 106.
“I felt like it was real, what [Kardashian tweeted],” Ray J said. “I kinda laughed about it, ’cause it was 100.”
“I wish ’em the best. Life is a roller-coaster, so you never know what’s gonna happen,” he added, addressing her relationship with Kanye West. “But I wish ’em the best, much success to both of ’em. Yo, this whole thing is like a Magic Mountain experience.”
His Magic Mountain reference refers to Kardashian’s trip to Six Flags with Kanye this week, which she shared on Twitter, but Ray J maintains that he wasn’t taking any jabs. “I don’t want people to take [this] any kind of way, I’m just havin’ fun.”
