Raz-B Update: B2K Singer Was NOT In A Coma
“De’Mario “Raz-B” Thornton was not in a coma. It is confirmed that he was injured in a nightclub. The comments about Raz being in a coma did not come from his official representative,” Raz’s rep said in a statement.
HollywoodLife.com exclusively spoke to his rep, and she gave us the true story of what really happened:
Raz was at the nightclub, and there was someone smashing bottles on the floor. There was no security. He approached the individual, and he was hit with a bottle. He’s fine. He went to jail, that is true, and then he went to the hospital to get stitches. He didn’t want to press charges, and his hospital bills were taken care of [by the aggressor.] I don’t know if he stayed overnight. I spoke to him today; he is fine.
However, Raz’s record label insist that he was in a coma.
Kameleon Music Group has received the news that our artists Raz B is doing well and that he will be able to fly over to the Netherlands very soon, to start working on the album that he was signed for.
When the news about Raz B being in a coma, started to spread the net, KMG immediatly contacted China to check if the rumors where true. We were informed that they were. Sunday morning, we decided to come out with a statement to show our support as a label to our artist.
The news about all of this being a Hoax is as suprising to us as it is for the rest of the world. The most important matter is that Raz B is doing well and that this nightmare is over.
Our mission is to create an amazing album with a talented artist and that’s what we will be focussing on.
Raz-B was hit in the face with a bottle while trying to break up a fight at a club in China. He was rushed to a hospital, where he was reported to have underwent minor surgery. The report added that when he didn’t wake up the next day, his backup dancer rushed him to the hospital, as he had fallen into a life-threatening coma. The iconic R&B superstar was then put on life support, according to TMZ.
However, we have since learned that this was not the case, and that he is totally OK.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you glad to hear that Raz-B was never in a coma?
