Ray J and Princess Love have not reconciled and are not going to couples therapy, a source tells ET.
Despite a recent report claiming the two have rekindled, ET has exclusively learned that Ray and Princess (who are expecting their second child, a baby boy) are not currently together as a couple.
The source adds that the two are in communication, but only over matters relating to their 1-year-old daughter, Melody.
As for why Ray and Princess were in the same room together on Tuesday (in a video posted to the singer's Instagram Stories at the time), the source tells ET that Ray volunteered to watch Melody while Princess was doing a maternity photo shoot.
ET has learned that Princess is still very much considering filing for divorce from her husband of three years. ET has reached out to reps for Ray and Princess for further comment.
The two have been making headlines ever since Princess claimed via Instagram Stories earlier this month that Ray left her and baby Melody stranded in Las Vegas. Ray fired back at the time, denying her claims with his own video, in which he slammed Princess for taking their personal drama to social media.
On Nov. 22, Princess took to Instagram once again to give an update on their situation. She claimed that two weeks ago, she found an extra phone Ray J had and that when she confronted him about it, he admitted that he had been "entertaining some women." She claimed they were able to put it behind then, but when she accompanied him to the Soul Train Awards in Vegas, he asked her to move to Vegas and she refused.
Princess continued on, alleging that that's when the two got into a huge argument and he left her and stayed out all night. The next day, she said they got into another argument, and she accused Ray J of continuously threatening her with divorce whenever they argue.
"So I said, the way you just get up and leave and disappear, I gotta get back to L.A. and I gotta get my mind right before this baby comes because with the way you move, I'm liable to be alone at any given moment," Princess said. "And so he said, 'I'm preparing to be alone too. As long as I can see my kids Monday through Wednesday.' And I said, 'OK, we can just be separated then.' And so he's like, 'Not before I file first.' So, you know, the conversation got really, really ugly. We started, you know, getting real disrespectful and so then he blocked me."
The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star alluded to the two getting a divorce in the candid video. A source told ET a few days later that Princess was "fed up" and had been telling close family and friends that she was considering filing for divorce if the drama between the two continued.
"I don’t want to be married anymore," Princess said. "Period. I don't have time for this. This is not love. And I'm done."
As for Ray, here's what he said prior to Princess' latest Instagram rant: "I love my family. I’ve dedicated my life to my family. To insinuate that I would do anything to harm my daughter is just sad. Man, I'm at the Skyloft right now, as you can see. I just don’t understand how somebody can get ‘stranded’ when we never left! We’ve been right here. You’re staying right there. We’re gonna get into little arguments here and there, but it’s small stuff that you can work out. But to take to social media and create this crazy story about me leaving my baby in harm’s way is not cool."
