Following the incident, Love said she had no desire to continue the marriage and Ray J was photo’d out and about without his wedding band.

A rep for the couple told PEOPLE at the time, “It’s a very difficult time for both Princess and Ray J and we are asking that we just let them have their privacy as they work through and deal with this very trying situation.”

Weeks after Princess filed for divorce, Ray J noted in a virtual press conference that he was happy to be “back with the kids.”

“Over these past few months, though, I’ve been at the studio locked in. I was at the studio right around when everything got locked down. Before I came home, I had to quarantine for 14 days. My wife has been supermom, and she wasn’t having that so she just wanted to make sure that I was good. We’re taking it one day at a time,” he said.

Ray J also gushed about being reunited with his family to celebrate Melody’s birthday in May.

“For us to all spend time together, talk and just be parents, I think a lot of things unfold from that,” he shared. “That’s a good start for us, just spending time with the kids and making sure that Melody has a great b-day. Through all of that, we can listen and understand each other. Right now we’re just locked in with the parenting. God is good.”

Ray J and Princess Love tied the knot in 2016.
