Former B2K manager Chris Stokes denied claims that he sexually molested B2K group member Raz-B.
In a recent online video Raz-B and his older brother, who now manages the remaining members of B2K claimed Stokes touched Raz-B when he was a child and forced him to shower with the other members of the group.
The pair claim in the video that Marques Houston was also molested by Stokes. Stokes, released a statement back in 2007, denying the allegations made by Raz-B, he exclusively told MTV News:
“All the allegations they made are false, i’m not gay. And I’m married. And I have four kids. I been with my wife for 16 years. And I’m not a child molester. So those are all false allegations. I’m gonna sue them. And I owe that to my wife and kids, period. It’s ridiculous.”
Fast Forward, in a recent interview with VLAdTV, Raz-B discussed being a teen star with B2K and how the group handled women at such an early age. According to Raz-B, B2K wasn’t out there knocking everything down. He said they were a good group of kids who were prepared to handle what came their way due to intensive artist development training.
Later on, Raz-B briefly touched on the Chris Stokes accusations, the fallout from revealing that information, and stating that he is a heterosexual man despite the alleged molestation. Raz-B alsoapologized to Chris Brown and Bow Wow for calling them gay. Back in 2012, in a tell-all book called “This Boy’s Life”, written by Raz-B, the former B2k member accused Bow Wow of being gay. He wrote:
“Bow Wow was younger than all of us, but the record company figured his affiliation with us (B2k) would be great. I didn’t see it for myself but I was told by Fizz that Bow Wow and he got involved with each other. I didn’t put a lot of stock in it then. It would be a few years until I realize that Fizz wasn’t lying.
“In 2005 Bow Wow and Omari became ‘inseparable.’ It wasn’t until rumors forced Bow Wow to end the relationships. The gay talk was hurting Bow Wow’s business.”
Perhaps the most interesting leak was about R&B singer Chris Brown. In 2011, Chris Brown and Raz were embroiled in a nasty feud via twitter. Chris Brown accused Raz of being gay and Raz responded by outing him. He said:
“They say you never know who knows who. Chris Brown didn’t think about that when he attacked me online. I have a friend that’s very close to Chris’ camp who told me that Chris was involved with an up and coming songwriter Andre Merritt. So when Chris started going in calling people ‘gay’ and ‘f***’ I just dropped Andre Merritt’s name. I knew it was true when he decided to shut up.”
