RAY J allegedly feared his suicidal ex-girlfriend would kill him.
The 33-year-old rapper reportedly called the police after he convinced himself Princess Love - who allegedly threatened to shoot herself after seeing photographs of the hunk with Karrueche Tran following their messy split in October last year - would murder him before taking her own life.
In an audio recording, obtained by TMZ.com, Ray J can be heard expressing his concerns to the police after Princess Love's alleged threats came just two days after his friend Earl Hayes reportedly shot his wife before killing himself last month.
Speaking to police on his way to work, the 'One Wish' hitmaker told the emergency department he needed urgent assistance at his home, saying: "She's threatening to kill herself because I wanted to end the relationship... I went back to try and find the gun, but she won't show it to me.
"I don't want to be in the house because Earl just killed his girlfriend, I'm thinking she might kill me."
Meanwhile, Ray J - whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr. - initially angered the brunette beauty when he got custody over their Maltese puppy, Boogotti following their split.
A source explained: "The two went at it over the three-pound Maltese puppy, to the point where Ray's security had to step in."
