Brandy‘s showing Ray J a lot of love on the heels of her brother’s concerning posts on social media.
The 43-year-old singer and actress took to Instagram on Friday and posted a throwback photo of her and Ray J with the caption, “Need you bro @rayj 🙏🏽.” The post came just hours after Ray J took to his Instagram and alarmed his fans with posts where he contemplated taking his own life.
In the since-deleted posts, captured by TMZ, Ray J’s caption read, “If it wasn’t 4 my Kidz I would jump off and die tonight.” Ray J and his wife, Princess Love, share two children — daughter Melody, 4, and son, Epik, 2.

Another post showed his feet hanging off the side of a ledge. That post was captioned, “SHOULD I JUST JUMP off and end it rit [sic]. Now!!! ????”
When fans headed over to his Instagram Story, the 41-year-old reality TV star said he was “trying to figure it out” and that “maybe this life was a [sic] illusion.” He also said “maybe the next life was my real reality.”
The outlet reported that a source close to Ray said he was with Princess Love and that drinking led him to publish the disturbing posts on social media. The source told TMZ that Ray J was not hospitalized and that he was just “messing around.”
Brandy and Ray J’s sibling love has been well documented over the years since she rose to fame as a singer and actress with her own hit sitcom, Moesha. More recently, that love was literally on full display after Ray J showed off a massive leg tattoo of his older sister’s face.
