The singer dialed 911 Wednesday and frantically told the dispatcher his girlfriend said she was going to kill herself, according to TMZ. Ray J broke things off with Princess Tuesday night, but she wouldn’t stop texting him after he left for work, and when he didn’t respond she threatened suicide.

TMZ says Ray J knew there was a gun in the house, so he took the threat very seriously (though everyone should take a threat like that seriously!). Ray J noted to the dispatcher that their good friend Earl Hayes just committed a murder/suicide … and that put him on high alert.

Cops went to their home for a welfare check, but Princess was gone.  Ray J checked in with his ex and says she insists the threat was empty.

I hope so- that’s not anything to joke around about.
