David Weintraub, manager of the U.S singer and Celebrity Big Brother contestant Ray J is preparing a lawsuit against the producers of Celebrity Big Brother.
It is claimed by Weintraub that the show’s producers breached the contract signed by refusing to let him return to the house after he left it for dental treatment.
He said, “We are deciding to sue because they are taking a position that is breaching the contract we agreed to.
“They are saying due to health issues, which don’t exist with Ray, that’s the reason they pulled the plug, which is utter nonsense. He’s been evaluated by his own doctors and dental team and he’s ok to work.
“These guys used Ray to launch the show, to get it started, to make it sound like it would be a big noise. He had a cavity that was causing him severe pain, that needed medical attention. Once it was done, he was cleared to work. Why is he being treated differently to other people who have left the show with medical conditions?”
A spokesman for Celebrity Big Brother speaking in response to the claims, said, “We always follow strict medical protocols relying on the advice of experts with regard to the health of housemates.”
Prior to his departure Ray J was proving to be a popular housemate. Viewers were unaware he was in any kind of pain. He had spent eight days in the house before he entered the diary room and left the house.
Weintraub continued, “They are not showing what really happened with his condition.
‘They will show you what they want to show you. This is not a reality show. It’s a sham that’s orchestrated by the producers.
“We have six shows we are part of (in the US) as stars or executive producers, and we have never seen this level of malice or neglect. The CBB producers show a part of the show that’s their interpretation.”
Ray J is famous for his hit songs One Wish and Sexy Can I.
