*Two months after Princess Love made a request to dismiss her filing to legally end her marriage with Ray J, the singer has made his own filing to move forward with the separation.
Ray J is also asking for joint custody of the couple’s two children: 9-month-old son Epik Ray, and daughter Melody Love, 2, according to The Blast.
Back in May, Love, 35, filed papers in LA County Superior Court, TMZ reported. She and Ray J had already been living separately after their epic Las Vegas meltdown last year, in which Love accused him of abandoning her and their daughter following a blow up the BET Awards.

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.
