Ray J just can’t let sleeping dogs lie. In what is most definitely a ploy to get his name back into the headlines (you’re welcome), Ray J responded to an inspirational message his ex Kim Kardashian tweeted with a mocking “LOL.” Yesterday, Kardashian tweeted about learning from past mistakes, which prompted Ray J to remind her of one of her worst: the infamous sex tape she made with the R&B singer in 2003 (which hit the Internet in 2007). The timing of Ray J’s tweet is also a bit suspect — it’s not a far stretch to say he may be jealous of the happiness Kardashian has recently found with Kanye West.
U wouldn’t be who u are today, u wouldn’t have the depth, maturity, & the insight were it not for those challenges that forced u to grow.

Lol RT @KimKardashian: Keep your life in a positive perspective. We are not defined by our pasts.

Ray J has taken advantage of opportunities he sees to mock Kardashian in the past, most notably by using his book Death of a Cheating Man: What Every Woman Should Know About Men Who Stray as a platform to talk about his and Kardashian’s sex life (in a rather less than flattering manner). In one passage, Ray J even claims that Kardashian cheated on her first husband, Damon Thomas, with him. “[Kardashian] let me know she wanted to get with me. She left her husband for me as soon as we started having sex,” he writes.
