Ray J to be paid $1m for Celebrity Big Brother

Ray J will be paid $1 million for his stint on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

The 'Sexy Can I' singer - who famously recorded a sex tape with ex Kim Kardashian West - is expected to earn the hefty amount for his appearance on the reality show.

TMZ reports that bosses will also hand Ray $30,000 so he can fly from the US to the UK and back and are also forking out money for a hotel for his UK stay.

Ray's manager David Weintraub has revealed the singer is hoping to buy a flat in Mayfair, London after enjoying the British city so much.

Meanwhile, it was previously claimed bosses are keen for Ray to dish all about his relationship with the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star.

A source said: "Bosses are over the moon with how the negotiations are going. Kim is one of the biggest celebrities in the world and they were never going to get her but booking Ray J means they'll get someone with proper insight into what goes on behind closed doors. He was right by her side as she shot to fame because of their sex tape so they are hoping he will talk openly about their relationship and reveal lots of new things about her while in the house."

Other celebrities expected to enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house during its launch on Tuesday evening (03.01.16) include Khloe Kardashian's pal Malika Haqq as well as Calum Best, Coleen Nolan, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt.

The theme of this year's programme is 'All Star vs New Stars' and will feature some of the most loved contestants from series gone by as well as a few new faces who will be stepping into the famous abode for the first time.
