R&B singer Ray J has confirmed late weekend rumors claiming he got into a physical confrontation with New York rapper Fabolous following Saturday’s Floyd Mayweather, Jr. boxing fight in Las Vegas.
According to Ray J, he attacked the rapper over Twitter jokes poking fun at him.
“I’ma smack you up again, fool! ‘Ray J got beat up?’ I’ll sock that n*gga in the face, my n*gga,” Ray J told DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God. “All I’m saying is if you got Fab’s number, tell that n*gga to send you a picture of his face right now…I’m with the Money Team right now. I swear to God he’s running from me right now…[After I hit him,] he fell back because he’s a sucker — Fab ain’t no comedian. My homie saved his life when he was in LA so how dare you even speak disrespectful to me. So when I seen him, I was with Floyd [Mayweather] and 50 [Cent] and he tried to say ‘Don’t touch me’ and I [punched] that n*gga — If you disrespect me, don’t come to the West Coast. So he in Las Vegas and he tried to disrespect me?” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Rumors of a fight hit the Internet early Monday (September 19) morning.
It seems Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz wasn’t the only two shooting the fair one on Saturday night. According to various fans, R&B singer Ray J and Brooklyn rapper Fabolous got into a fight this weekend backstage at a concert. The hear say first started on Twitter after a fan wrote: “Just saw Ray J and Fabolous throw blows backstage at the concert in Vegas,” while another tweets, “So @RayJ just punched @myfabolouslife about some dumb stuff but Fab whooped his a** backstage.” Unlike the Mayweather bout, fans won’t get to see the alleged fight on video. Reports have it that security guards forced all onlookers to delete any footage. (Singersroom)
Fab took to Twitter Saturday (September 17) to poke fun at Ray J.
“N*gga Ray J doin a concert in his living room… Lmaoooooo,” he tweeted Saturday.
“Nah but Floyd saying we havin a concert in my living room & the camera cuts to Ray J singing “One Wish” on the piano had me in tears!!”
“Get it..? Ray J concert in the living room!! *Lil Wayne voice*”
“Jus ran into my n*gga @RayJ at @iamdiddy dinner.. He told me & @KevinHart4real that it was a f*cked up edit & b*tches was there!!” (Fabolous’ Twitter)
Last year, Fab talked about his stance on the social networking site.
“You don’t want to seem phony,” Fab said in an interview. “You don’t want it to be seen as something you’re just doing as a promo event. At the same time you gotta tease it in there and give it to people gradually so they can know the importance of it – not just because we got the show coming. I definitely want to use Twitter as an influence. It’s a way to communicate with people without even touching them, without really directly touching anybody. To even go further than that they put out this thing called Retweet and they can retweet me to their timelines and people that may not even be following me can see the information we are giving about it.” (All Hip Hop)
