We knew this tour wouldn’t have some type of drama associated with it especially from the B2K members…
“I am a work in progress,” Raz told fans in an Instagram Story update early Wednesday. “I appreciate the outpouring of love, empathy, and understanding from my supporters.”
The assurance to fans arrives on the heels of a previous Instagram Story update from Raz in which he revealed he didn’t feel safe on the road. “Actually, let me correct myself,” he said. “Raz-B is actually off the tour. I don’t feel safe because I feel like Chris Stokes is around. I’m off the tour.”
At the time, Raz added that he was willing to talk to Omarion about continuing with the scheduled dates. In a subsequent update, Raz tagged the official Lifetime account and proposed a Surviving R. Kelly style documentary about Stokes, B2K’s former manager. “I’m ready to talk,” he said.
Back in 2007, Raz accused Stokes of sexually abusing him as a child. His brother, Ricardo “Ricky Romantic” Thornton, made similar allegations against Stokes. Among other things, Raz characterized Stokes as an “incest perpetrator” who allegedly took advantage of him during his time with the group.
