Ray dedicated his rendition of Enrique Iglesias's 'Hero' to his brother as a way of saying thanks for stepping up after his parents separated.

Davis took to Twitter last night, defending her godson: "Put @ArinRaySings thru so he can do wht he do! Don't let him go home b/c britney doesn't know wht she's doing

"PLEASE vote 4 my godson @ArinRaySings keep him in so he can "be me" b/c Britney Spears has not been good mentor not fair!

"@britneyspears u continue 2 sabotage my godson @arinraysings & I do NOT appreciate it. Wtf! These songs! Seriously!"

The tweets have since been removed from her profile.

Arin Ray has responded to his godmother's allegations, saying: "I was shocked and very upset that she made such harsh, rude and untrue statements about Britney. I know she felt she was protecting me, however, I didn't need that or ask for that! She was way off and dead wrong.

"Although I can't take back anything she's said, know I don't agree with anything of it and neither does my FAMILY. Britney is a great person and mentor!"
