Everything seems to be fine now in between Kanye West45, and Ray J, 41, after arguing for many years. The “Jesus Walks” rapper and “Let It Go” singer met at the premiere of Candace Owensa new documentary, The Biggest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLMwhere they posed together on the carpet on Oct. 12, and now we’re learning they’re ready to put their “rocky past” behind them.
“There’s a lot of history going back years and years between Ray J and Kanyeso it was a great feeling to come together to show support for a great cause,” one source told EXCLUSIVELY Hollywood Life. “Despite Ray J and Kanye‘s rocky past, the atmosphere really felt like they had put that behind them to focus on the bigger picture here.” Kanye and Ray J, who were both romantically involved with Kim Kardashianhave made headlines over the years for dodging each other in songs including Ye’s “Highlights” and Ray J’s “I Hit It First,” but now that they’ve both moved on from the reality star, they seem to be finding some common ground which allows them to reconcile.
“After everything they’ve both been through with Kim and her family, it’s almost been a situation where the enemy of your enemy is your friend,” the source continued. “Ray feels like the only drama he’s ever been through Kanye involving the Kardashians, and he’d rather not argue with someone who, in his eyes, did them both wrong. After everything that has happened, Ray feels that it is time to settle the beef between him and Kanye In the past. [The premiere] was all about love and positivity, and even though Ray has no idea where things will go from here, it was good to see that they could both be men and focus on the most important things that was Candace’s premiere.”
“Ray J and Kanye definitely talked to each other, but there was absolutely no mention of Kim,” the insider added. “They mingled throughout the night, but there was no one on one serious conversation or anything. It was kind of like the elephant in the room, but Ray didn’t feel like it was appropriate when they were both there to support Candace.”
The news about Kanye and Ray J’s reunion comes after the latter responded to an Instagram post the former made on September 1st. It included strong words aimed at Kim’s mother Kris Jenner, who both of them got to know when they were romantically involved with Kim, and Ray J accused her of trying to “ruin” his family at one point. It seems before his reaction, Brandy’s brother had apparently wanted to patch things up with Ye for a while, and Candace’s documentary screening invitation gave him the perfect opportunity to do so in person.
“Ray J tried to make peace with Kanye many times over the years, so when this invitation came from Candace and he knew it Kanye would be there, he felt it would be a good opportunity to be in the same room as him and make peace,” a second source told us EXCLUSIVELY. Kanye and Kim split in February 2021 after marrying in 2014, and Ray J’s relationship with Kim, who also produced their infamous sex tape, lasted from 2002 to 2006.
