R&B singer Ray J was denied a role in an independent movie alongside gospel star Yolanda Adams due to the leaked sex tape he directed and starred in. According to reports, Ray J was baffled when he was asked to audition over and over again for the role in the unnamed film – before producers came clean and admitted his saucy private life was too risque for the project. The sex tape that landed him in trouble was one he shot with former girlfriend Kim Kardashian. He explains, “I felt like I shouldn’t have had to audition because I’d worked with the casting director on a few movies. But I did it for him.” “We were going through this whole thing and I was just like, ‘I’ve got the part.’ Then they called me and asked me, ‘Yo, what’s up with the sex tape? We know about it.'” “Then they called me back and said, ‘Well, Yolanda Adams is in the movie and this is gospel and we just can’t do it.'” Ray J is currently dating Whitney Houston.
