Princess first filed for divorce in May 2020, months after they couple got into a massive fight in Las Vegas.

It was reported that they had been living separately since February 2020, but they reconciled that summer amid the COVID-19 quarantine.

Ray-J filed for divorce in September, citing irreconcilable differences, also asking the judge to uphold their pre-nuptial agreement.

He also asked the judge to grant him joint custody of their children, three-year-old Melody and one-year-old Epik.

After the September filing, they reconciled again, this time moving their family to Florida.

Ray J has been battling pneumonia in a Miami hospital for the past four days, placed in the COVID wing because he had assumed he had the virus.

While he tested negative for COVID numerous times, his pneumonia was so bad it was thought he may even die from it at one point.

Now he’s back on the mend, with his manager Dave Weintraub stating that they hope he can go home by the end of the week.

Still, given his health struggles, the fact that he’s moving forward with divorce while fighting for his life in the hospital could indicate it’s actually over this time.
