Ray J seems to follow in the footsteps of former Kim Kardashian, as it appears that he is secretly conducting talks with members of the Trump government in his own attempt to reform criminal law.
Sources tell DailyMailTV that the 38-year-old Love & Hip Hop star is lobbying for Trump to be rapper and friend Marion & # 39; Suge & # 39; To grant Knight pardon, who was sentenced for manslaughter in 2018.
Knight, 54, was sentenced to 28 years behind bars for injuring Cle Sloan and killing Terry Carter after persuading both men during a hamburger drive-in in January 2015.
He was originally faced with 11 years in prison, but his sentence was later doubled under California's three-strikes law based on his earlier convictions. An additional six years was also added for using a vehicle as a deadly weapon in a & # 39; serious and violent & # 39; crime.
A source close to the singer says that he now hopes that President Knight will pardon his crimes because he believes his friend has learned from his mistakes and is ready to turn over a new magazine.

His move follows Kardashian's own efforts to reform criminal law, with Trump in 2018 granting a favor to former drug trader Alice Johnson.
& # 39; Ray J is and has always been very competitive. He saw what Kim could do with her work in the criminal justice system with the Trump government and he is determined to show that he can do the same & # 39 ;, the source told DailyMailTV.

Kardashian, who became famous after the release of her sex tape with Ray J in 2007, has since been an advocate for criminal justice reform.
She was under the swarm of celebrities who successfully lobbyed for the release of Cyntoia Brown, who was sentenced to life in prison after killing a man who paid $ 150 to have sex with her when she was 16.
Last year, Ray J allegedly entered into a jailhouse company agreement with Knight, who said he had asked the star to oversee his Death Row Records business while serving time.
& # 39; Ray J is not just a friend of mine, that's a little brother, that's family. And I respect Ray J and his business transactions, that's why I choose him as one of the guys to deal with the music side of the future as Death Row Records, everything to do Death Row and it's great to have him because he will be releasing this incredible album and I've heard it before, & Knight said The blast in a telephone interview from prison.
It is understood that Ray J tried to meet Trump in the White House, but the government insisted that the entertainer join one of his political meetings with the president.

The singer was even invited earlier this month to fly with Trump on Air Force One to rally's in Lake Charles, Louisiana or Dallas, Texas, but was unable to make it due to planning conflicts.
DailyMail.com reached for the White House for comment.
& # 39; The people around Ray J continue to tell him that the consequences with African Americans for a meeting with Trump can be catastrophic for his career. Especially when he appears at a political meeting, & # 39; the source added.
But apparently Ray J is adamant that his audience will continue to rock with him & # 39; because he used his relationship with Trump to make an impact, and he continues to remind people how Kardashian's work with Trump has helped her to legitimize her.
He also claims that Kanye West's visit to the White House was not enough to destroy the rapper's career.

But other entertainers have had a huge setback due to their association with Trump. In 2017, DailyMail.com revealed Steve Harvey's talk show and radio show due to his visit to Trump Tower bad reviews.
R&B singer Chrisette Michele was chopped by her fans for the performance on one of Trump & # 39; s inaugural balls. Tony Award-winning Broadway star Jennifer Holliday also stopped singing at one of the inaugural balls after a quick kickback from both African-Americans and her LGBT fans.
& # 39; Ray J feels as if he does this for Suge, everything will be forgiven and the streets will respect him for his efforts. If he can get Suge out of jail, he feels that people will respect him as a real mogul who gets things done regardless of political beliefs, & the source revealed.
Reportedly, Knight is aware that Ray J is working to grant him grace. During a recent telephone interview from prison with TMZ, Knight indicated that he is convinced that he will be out of jail sooner than later.
Although there is an expectation that overcrowding in California prisons and spending time could ultimately benefit the Compton-bred criminal, Knight implied that he had something else in store.
