Ray J has walked out of Big Brother just seven days into the show after an agonising toothache left him 'blacking out' in pain.

Channel 5 has confirmed that the rapper was rushed to hospital with a tooth abscess. Ow.

Kim K's sex tape co-star was paid a reported £810,000, making him one of the highest paid stars to ever appear on the show. However, it's now unclear if he will get the full fee.

TMZ has reported that he's pretty unimpressed with the way he was treated and claims he was left to suffer for three-and-a-half days before the show's producers stepped in and got him help.

He has since threatened to sue Big Brother if they don't let him re-enter the house.

The 35-year-old, who was up for eviction this week, is reported to have been in such extreme pain that his fellow housemates refused to carry on filming until he was given help.

In a FaceTime with TMZ, he said: "I have a bad tooth problem and I've been doing this show Big Brother in London and I've been complaining about my tooth for about three-and-a-half days now.

"It got to the point where some of the housemates felt like I was being ignored, we took petitions to say, 'We're not doing any more tasks until Ray J's tooth gets fixed'.

"I've got a cracked tooth where I need a filling fixed, I got a gum coming over my tooth and I'm in a lot of pain - so three-and-a-half days in the house with all of this pain, they decided to take me out.

"The wind hit my tooth and I blacked out. I ended up in the hospital. Forty-five minutes later they gave me some nutrition and I eat some McDonald's and I'm cool, like I'm literally fine and I'm ready to go back in the house."

When asked if he would sue the show's producers, he said: "I'd never like to do that because I'm a producer as well and I like to be on the same page with everybody but this is just not fair and if I have to take those precautions, I will. I don't even care about my tooth - put me back in the house and let me work, this isn't right."

I wish I could think of something witty to put here...soz.
