Ray J's Scooters Might Cost Him $30 Million Nightmare


R&B singer Ray J looks like he has a hefty lawsuit on his hands. New reports claim the crooner is getting targeted to the sum of $30 million for stealing the concept behind his new scooters.

According to reports, plaintiff Jean Paul believes Ray J jacked the electric scooters idea from him in 2015.

Jean Paul takes a swipe at Ray in the lawsuit, saying Ray "arguably maintains a certain level of celebrity" that would be useful in hawking the scooter. He says they agreed that Ray would become an investor and celebrity endorser and that was enough for Jean Paul to start the business. He says he was shocked to learn Ray secretly launched a competing business to ace Jean Paul out ... thus the $30 million lawsuit, filed by his attorney, Sarah Cabarcas-Osman from the Berman Law Group. (TMZ)

Back in November, buzz developed about Ray J landing a massive $31 million deal to release his scooters.

The deal would see Ray J taking an active role in the partnership (Cowboy Wholesale) by overseeing global branding strategies and overseas marketing. The singer had already begun his foray into the world of electronics with his brand in 2015 and is most famous for the Scoot-E-Bike, a foldable vehicle on two wheels. The new partnership is set to focus on innovation and other green electronic technologies. (The Grio)

Ray has since released a statement to confirm the headline-generating news.

"The world is moving towards renewable green energy, and electric transportation is a big part of that. With the Raycon movement, we are going to make sure we are one of the first ones there." (Statement)

Ray also hit up Instagram to announce the big scooter launch.
