Ray J

Saved By Ingrown Hairs

Ray J owes his life to ingrown hairs -- because TMZ has learned, the person who called an ambulance for him Monday morning is none other than model Sophie Monk, his ingrown hair endorsement partner.

As we reported, Ray was rushed to the hospital Monday morning for exhaustion and dehydration following the Billboard Music Awards -- and we're told Sophie's the one who discovered him in his hotel room and alerted authorities.

Sophie and Ray J had hosted a Billboard Awards afterparty the night before -- promoting their Prince Reigns ingrown hair shaving serum -- and after they returned to their hotel, we're told Sophie had a bad feeling Ray wasn't okay.

According to sources, the two went to their separate rooms -- but Sophie decided to check up on Ray to make sure he was alright ... and discovered him unresponsive on the floor.

We're told Sophie called hotel management, which then called 911. An ambulance took Ray J to the hospital shortly after.

Look we already know the dehydration/exhaustion thing is a lie, ok? Just stop it. As MANY physicians pointed out after the Kony guy flipped out, NO YOUNG HEALTHY ADULT IS HOSPITALIZED FOR DEHYDRATION OR EXHAUSTION. EVER.
Period. The end.

Oh, and no one gets "RUSHED" to the hospital for dehydration and exhaustion *sigh* someone needs to admit he either O.D.'ed or passed out drunk.
So... Sophia is banging Ray J...

just my opinion    

why cant people just admit they were drunk as fck? i wont be overly cynical and assume he was on a serious drug...but what is the big secret?? most adults have had a night where we probably couldve used a hospital bed after drinking too much but instead toughed it out, woke up and made ourselves barf, made breakfast, had a coffee and went to work. celebs are such sissies, i swear.

Exhaustion and dehydration? Bull****. What was he doing so much to be so exhausted and dehydrated at the Billboard awards? More like it was a drug overdose. I have been exhausted in fact I was exhausted yesterday from working but I am never unresponsive and unconscious. I love how when these celebs have drug overdoses or party too much they always check in to hospital claiming its exhaustion. Your a pathetic excuse for a man Ray J and you and fat Pat had something to do with poor Whitney's death probably gave her last hit that killed her that's why you both are acting so guilty. Hope karma hits both of you in the ass hard.

Exhausted from what?

Please, you know he got drunk or was on something and passed out.


Either that or it's a publicity stunt. See he didn't get enough attention at the billboards, so he decided to play dead and see who payed attention...like a dog.

TMZ you gotta get some sources that will tell you the real story behind these exhaustion and dehydration claims. We NEVER find out what the real story is unless people go completely crazy publicly like Mariah and Brittany.

Separate rooms, right? Was his door just magically opened and unlocked for her to enter? Really??? Sounds like she was in his room with him all along. Why? Because it sounds like they are sleeping together. Let's see the security tape from the hotel corridor, bet it doesn't fit her story.

Separate rooms, really? How do you just happen to find your friend's door conveniently open and unlocked? Why did she not text him, or call him on the phone first? It sounds like these two are sleeping together, and went to his room together--in the first-place, the rest of the story is just a cover-up. Bet that the hotel security tape of the corridor shows the real story.

This "exhaustion" appears to be an epidemic for celebrities. So take heed, if you plan to become a celeb, you may be at risk of catching this highly contagious, potentially life threatening disease, exhaustion.

Same thing I was thinking, uber critic.

How'd she get in to find him passed out on the floor?
