Ray J has returned home after being hospitalized Monday morning in Las Vegas.
While originally admitted for exhaustion, doctors investigated a much more serious ailment.
As his rep explained to Us Weekly: "Ray J has been released from the hospital in Las Vegas and is back home in Los Angeles following an extensive battery of tests to make sure that he did not have a blood clot in his lungs, which is potentially a deadly condition that can occur following a long haul plane flight."
The singer was in town Sunday night to attend the Billboard Music Awards, which featured a tribute to his ex-girlfriend Whitney Houston.
