Ray J's girlfriend says she'd never kill herself ... and her recent threat was just a bad choice of words.
Princess Love says she clearly took things too far -- especially considering her friends Stephanie Moseley and Earl Hayes' murder-suicide.
Princess tells us her suicide scare Wednesday was triggered by an argument she and Ray J had over holiday plans. As TMZ previously reported, Ray J thought she was upset over a BET special he filmed with Karrueche Tran.
Princess tells us she and Ray J have reunited ... but we're guessing it's only a matter of time before things once again go south.
