“They asked Jonathan to come back as an all-star and do the full season, but his schedule is crazy at the moment and he’s got other shows in development, but he loves Celebrity Big Brother and wanted to be part of it in some way,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “When they told him that Ray J would be in the house, he was totally up for going in and causing a little drama... [The singer] has no idea this is going to happen.”

On the Jan. 3 episode, Ray J bragged about his notorious past with Kim, telling the camera, “You might know me for a lot things — music, reality TV, oh, and you might also know me for my d—k. People wanna know about the sex tape with me and Kim Kardashian. Order it, put some money in my pocket... Y’all still j--king off to the sex tape? Enjoy!” Classy.
Naturally, after the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star’s sophisticated speech, Jonathan chimed in on Twitter, writing, “What a loser #CBB (you know who I'm talking about)..see you soon London.”
