Ray J surprised Celebrity Big Brother viewers[Channel 5]
But the One Wish singer has proved to be one of the most entertaining housemates in the current series, alongside Heidi and Spencer Pratt, Calum Best and Nicola McLean.
However, while many known him for starring in a sex tape with Kim, some may be shocked at his past.
The 35 year old was charged with sexual battery, back in 2014, after he was accused of touching a woman’s bum.
During the alleged incident, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, the Daily Star report he touched her for the “specific purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification and sexual abuse”.

After being arrested, the site states the police explained he became angry, and allegedly spat at an officer.
The I Hit It First singer also reportedly kicked out a window in the police car.
He was charged with sexual battery, vandalism of a police car, battery on an office, and resisting arrest, following the incident.
The charges were later dropped after his lawyer struck a plea deal.

Instead Ray, real name William Norwood, was sentenced to community service, anger management therapy and probation after he pleaded no contest to misdemeanour trespassing.
His appearance on Celebrity Big Brother has already caused outrage, with many unhappy with the figure he is reportedly being paid to appear on the show.
Channel 5 bosses are keen for the rapper to spill the beans on his famous dalliance with Kanye West’s wife, back in 2003, and splashed out a big sum for his appearance.
According to reports, Ray J is set to bag a massive £810,000 for his stint in the famous house – which is the equivalent of $1million.

One person who isn’t too impressed with his appearance is Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban.
The 42 year old, who recently touched down in London, made his opinions known on social media.
In a message to his 751k followers, the publicist wrote: “So far extremely boring #cbb,
“Can’t see it getting much better.
“What a loser #CBB (you know who I’m talking about).. See you soon London.”
With the publicist coming to the UK, many assumed he was heading back to the house.
“This is set to be explosive,” a source told the Daily Mail.
“Jonathan is fiercely protective of Kim so for the first time one of her nearest and dearest is going face to face with Ray J it’s all going to kick off!”

The insider then continued: “Ray J has no idea that Jonathan might be coming into CBB and this will totally unsettle the house.
“This will be the first time Jonathan and Ray J will have met although Jonathan has been vocal in the past about Ray J.”
