In the lyrics for “Hurt You,” Ray J opens up about his widely publicized relationship with Princess Love.
EURweb previously reported, two months after Love made a request to dismiss her filing to legally end their marriage, the singer made his own filing this week to proceed with the divorce.
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. She was pregnant with their son at the time.

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.”
