Kim Kardashian's best friend Jonathan Cheban makes surprise return to CBB for 'explosive' showdown with her ex Ray J
Kim Kardashian's close friend Jonathan Cheban is set to make an explosive return to the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Cheban was a contestant in last year's Celebrity Big Brother but quit after a week after complaining about feeling "claustrophobic" in the house.
The 40-year-old, a close friend of Kim's, is a regular on reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, a former PR firm chief executive and founder of luxury lifestyle website TheDishh.com.
A source revealed to the Mail Online that Cheban is set to make a surprise return to the show and will confront Kim's ex boyfriend Ray J.
The source told the news site: "This is set to be explosive. Jonathan is fiercely protective of Kim so for the first time one of her nearest and dearest is going face to face with Ray J. It's all going to kick off."
Ray J famously starred in Kim's 2007 leaked sex tape and mentioned it as soon as he made his appearance on the Channel 5 reality show.
He bragged in his introduction: "You might know me for my music, TV shows and my d**k!"
The former rapper and brother of r'n'b singer Brandy encouraged viewers to purchase his sex tape: "Go download it. Put some money in my pocket."
Cheban tweeted about Ray J during the show's broadcast to his 751k followers: 'What a loser # CBB (you know who I'm talking about)..see you soon London'.
