R&B singer Ray J is back in Los Angeles and out of the hospital, according to E! News.

Brandy's little brother was hospitalized near Las Vegas for exhaustion after the Billboard Music Awards.

His representative told E! he was released "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 rep adds that Ray J had just returned from performing in China before heading to Vegas.

He was close friends with Whitney Houston and said in March that he was "still hurting" a month after she drowned in a bathtub in California at age 48.

Sunday's award show featured a tribute to Houston by John Legend and Jordin Sparks.
