*Ray J has taken to Instagram to blast reports that he is attempting to have Trump pardon Suge Knight .

The Daily Mail claims Ray J is in trying to get Suge released from prison, so he’s been having ‘secret talks’ with the Trump Administration in an attempt to procure a pardon for Knight. 

Suge is currently serving a 28 year prison sentence for murder. In 2018, he pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in a hit and run which killed his associate Terry Carter on set of the film “Straight Outta Compton.”

The publication even quoted an insider who claims folks around Ray J have warned him that riding the Trump train would be a bad look for his career. 

“The people around Ray J keep telling him that the fallout with African Americans for meeting with Trump could be catastrophic to his career. Especially if he shows up at a political rally,” said the source.

In a series of videos, Ray J called the Daily Mail story “false and corny.” 

“Why can’t we talk about the businesses that we’re involved with? Why can’t we talk about pushing the narrative for Raycon Global and how we’re trying to be a positive impact in the tech industry?” he wrote in an Instagram post. 

“This is the second time y’all trying to pull a stunt like this!” Ray J also added, “I’ve been working very hard building my companies and staying out of BS! If you wanna post a story about me pls make sure it’s true.”

On Wednesday, the Daily Mail wrote that Ray J wants to follow his ex Kim Kardashian’s footsteps in criminal justice reform.

“Ray J is very competitive and always has been. He saw what Kim was able to do with her work in the criminal justice system with the Trump administration and he is determined to show he can do the same,” the source told DailyMailTV.
