Ray J and Sophie Monk are apparently not involved in a rebound relationship. The beautiful Australian model spoke about the rumors and what it's like to be famous in a world where nothing is sacred when it comes to celebrities.
Apparently, the rumor mill went into overdrive recently when Sophie was spotted leaving Ray's home at 8:30 in the morning. However, things are not always what they seem. Sophie says she was only photographed going in to the singers home in the afternoon and left around midnight.
"When my mother called me from Australia and asked me if I was leaving Whitney Houston's ex-boyfriend's house at 8:30 in the morning, I thought, wow I finally made it in America! But, in all seriousness...yes, I told my mama that I had been over at Ray-J's house, but I was there for a modeling job for a new campaign for Prince Reigns, and the only picture taken of me was at 3:30 in the afternoon when I arrived...So to hear this question from my own mother hurt me, as I have never been someone looking for controversy to make my career," she said.
Even though many people don't think the rumors bother celebrities, it's obvious that they do. How can they not?
Being a Hollywood icon today is much different that it was years ago when there were not photographers outside every street corner looking to snap the best or most controversial shot.
"I'm very grateful for what I have, but society has changed. I want people to know they aren't missing out...When the press makes things up like this, it does affect me and affects the people who I love, like my mama. As much as we don't want to admit it, we do read the blogs and the gossip magazines. I guess this is the price of fame, but I wish that it wouldn't always have to be so cheap," Sophie continued.
So despite the photos and the gossip blogs making it look like Sophie Monk was a rebound for Ray J, it appears as though she isn'tÂ—and won't be.
