Early life, family, and education
Princess is of mixed ethnicity, with her mother, Lena being Filipina, while her father, Hugh is of African-American descent.

Princess started her career by working as an exotic dancer in various Las Vegas, Nevada clubs. She also dabbled in modeling and appeared as a vixen in several music videos.
She first came into the media’s spotlight when she started dating the professional boxer, Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013. However, their relationship was short-lived, and generated major controversy after Floyd accused Princess of stealing more than $10,000 from him. During this time, Princess was also accused of cheating on him with her now-husband, Ray J.
“Love & Hip Hop”
At the time, Ray J was one of the key cast members of the VH1 reality series “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood”. Naturally, the controversy was addressed in the show and led to Princess making her debut appearance in the series in 2014, and her career took a new direction. The show, which chronicles the lives and careers of hip-hop artists and their significant others, was a big hit with audiences, and Princess quickly became a fan favorite in the series, thanks to her quick wit, sharp tongue, and good looks.
She also became known for her tumultuous relationship with the rapper Ray J. Among other things, the show chronicled the beginning of their relationship, their wedding, and Princess’s first pregnancy.
Princess’s relationship with her father was also covered during her “Love & Hip Hop” time; she revealed that they didn’t speak to each other for more than a decade. Her husband played a major role in reconciling the two, and teamed up with Princess’s grandmother, Barbara, in making sure they settled their differences.
In 2019, Princess announced that she would be leaving “Love & Hip Hop” after five seasons, which was met with disappointment from fans of the show, who had come to love and admire her over the years.
Since leaving the series, Princess Love has continued to focus on her career as a fashion designer and entrepreneur. She’s expanded her cosmetics line, launched new fashion collections, and continued to model and work with major fashion brands.
Relationship with Ray J
Throughout her time on “Love & Hip Hop”, Princess’s personal life was often at the center of the show’s drama. Her relationship with Ray J was marked by infidelity, arguments, and other issues, all of which played out on camera for viewers to see.
Princess Love and Ray J married in August 2016., and less than two years later on 22 May 2018, they welcomed their first child, daughter Melody Love. On 7 January 2020, Princess Love gave birth to their son, named Epik Ray.
Unfortunately, only five months after welcoming Epik, Ray J filed for divorce from Princess. The couple eventually reconciled, but their marriage has apparently been on the verge of ending ever since that point, and Ray J filed for divorce for the second time in October 2021, shortly after he was hospitalized due to pneumonia. This sparked rumors that their separation may be final this time around, pointing at a deeper issue in their relationship.
In early 2022, Princess made a celebratory Instagram post revealing that she expects her divorce from Ray J to be finalized in August of that year. However, it seems that the two have settled things down since then, as they were seen spending time together on social media, and Princess was also present at Ray J’s birthday party in January 2023.
Ray J has since expressed his intention to have a ‘fresh’ start with the mother of his children, while Princess has also stated that she is open to reconciling with him. At the moment, it remains unclear whether they will be proceeding with the divorce.
Despite her success as a reality TV personality, Princess was always interested in pursuing other ventures as well. She began to explore the world of fashion design, and launched her clothing line, “Princess Love Collection”, which was well received, and so Princess has continued to design and produce her own fashion items.
