He looks great for his age, guess is the famous ”money magic”… Also very typical italian apperience, his french side did not came up in his make up at all.
Lol you act like you know it all simply because you are (at least you claim) from the place, while saying —- like ”Hispanic/Arab” as if those were legit ethnicities and even if they were, they would not be close at all to justify using the ”/”… you are funny man, i wonder why some people asked to ban me from this site a while ago but you are still here after the most absurd and span-like comments…
Your comments are all ridiculous and racist. Ray is mostly Italian. Get over it.
Delusional. There’s nothing you say that will ever make him not Italian.
let it go man, its useless arguing with this clown
You’re right, jonas.
