  1. I think of Ray J as one capable of amassing far more wealth than his estimated net worth. The truth is he wasted so much of his prime years chasing fancies from the likes of Kim Kardashian, serenading unknown girls who appear on a reality show desperate to connect to his celebrity; who had no chance under the sun at a secure relationship because his mother in particular must approve of any girl he dates or consider marrying. I recall each episode of the show involving his mother’s assessment of each girl of his choice were either not good enough for him, or simply a gold digger. Some times being a “mama boy” can be a disadvantage and certainly impede success for the individual. Furthermore, his lavish spending on expensive cars didn’t help; buy
    high priced cars he seldom drive. In the world where most live, cars does not enhance wealth, rather decreases wealth.
    Though, his current net worth if accurate is substantial. I think he would have been worth far more given his name recognition and adherence to positive financial advise.
