B2K Singer Recants Rape Allegations

12/27/2007 1:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Last week, he said his former manager sexually abused him, but today, B2K's Demario "Raz B" Thorton is saying he made the whole thing up.


In a statement posted on YouTube, Thorton apologizes for the accusations he made about Chris Stokes, saying the allegations of improper touching and molestation were "not true."

UPDATE: In reponse to Thorton's new statement, Chris Stokes tells TMZ, "I'm happy that Demario "Raz B" Thorton and Ricardo Thorton realized their mistakes and admitted to lying. I have always supported my family and have always been a stand up person. I knew that the truth would eventually come to light."

Bossip says Raz B's brother confirms Raz B has been missing for two days. Also, they claim that the Compton Bloods gave Raz B that script to read. Raz B doesn't look at the camera. He was obviously forced to recant. This is way more explosive than 'which braindead slut has a mugshot out'.

If Raz B were female, this would make a lot more news.

YOUR INDUSTRY INSIDER    

RECORD COMPANIES WILL GIVE YOU ANYTHING YOU WANT AS LONG AS YOU ARE ON TOP OF THE CHARTS!! THEY WILL GIVE YOU YOUNG BOYS, IN R. KELLY'S CASE, YOUNG GIRLS. DOES ANYONE RECALL THEIR SECRET MARRIAGE ? AND THE SONG AGE AINT NOTHIN' BUT A NUMBER. WHY WERE YOU ALL SO SUPRISED ABOUT THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST HIM. JERMAINE JACKSON SAID OUT HIS OWN MOUTH .... HE REMEMBERS WHEN MICHAEL WAS JUST A KID JOE WOULD OCCASSIONALLY LEAVE THE CHILD ALONE IN THESE "MEETINGS" WITH OLDER WHITE MEN THAT WOULD SOMETIMES LAST FOR 9-10 HOURS. HE SAID WHEN MICHAEL WOULD COME HOME FROM THOSE MEETINGS THE ENTIRE FAMILY COULD TELL THE CHILD HAD TAKEN A SHOWER. HE ALSO SAID MICHAEL WOULD NOT EAT OR SAY A WORD FOR DAYS, THAT HE SEEMED TO BE IN A TRANCE. NO WONDER JOE WAS SO SUPPORTIVE DURING THE MOLESTATION TRIAL. BECAUSE HE KNEW HE HAD EXPOSED MICHAEL TO THIS BEHAVIOR IN EXCHANGE FOR FAME & FORTUNE .... WHEN THE RECORD COMPANIES SEE YOUR SALES ARE FALLING OFF THEY THREATEN TO PUT YOUR "DARK DESIRES" OUT!!!! READ LITTLE RICHARDS BOOK FOLKS! YOU'LL LEARN AN AWFUL LOT, IF YOU CAN STOMACH THE HORRIBLE TRUTH ABOUT SHOWBIZ!!! YOU BETTER BELIEVE EVERY SEXY BLACK ENTERTAINER OUT THERE HAS "PAID THEIR DUES" !! MALE & FEMALE ALIKE!! AND ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS ............. HONEY ATTRACTS JUST AS MANY FLIES AS IT DOES BEES !!!!!

....a person of color!?!? What does his race have to do with anything Mr/Ms. JustMe? I would rather B Raz being black, white, asian, mexican or what the hell ever race he was BORN, come out and let the world know that whether this happened to him or not this may have happened to other people who we grew up around or worked with. An investigation needs to take place to be sure because ANY thing could have happened the reason he is recanting now. He may have been threatened by this big money having organization and may have been scared into recanting. I believe these things and more are taking place all over the music, movie and modeling industries and no one is doing anything to help the young men and women who are trapped in it. Wrong is wrong what ever race you are.

Men do not voluntarily admit to being raped by another man for no good reason so surely someone who is trying to be in the public eye for being a sexy ladies man would not just make something like this up. A black man especially would not make something like this up unless it's some twisted way of coming out to the world or something stupid and crazy like that. Either he is completely messed up in the head or it really happened but now he's scared. And what kind of person being accused of such a thing would say "I'm glad *they* decided to tell the truth. I knew the truth would come out"???? I'd like to think I'm a good person but I would not be that calm about such a horrible allegation by one person, let alone two!!!!!!!!!

"Raz B" probably got scared when Stokes threatened to post his uncut XXX video* of a shower scene where "Raz B" gave back as much love & fun as he received. He might have a dope habit and just needed to shake down Stokes for some money to pay the dope man. Now it blew back in his face! Look for this* on Xtube.com or 89.com.

Someone close to his camp needs to do something. I believe everything you say because I have been near people of high power who get away with a lot of stuff due to the fact that they manipulate and scare up the people around them and for the people who they can't control with power they do it with money and gifts. I feel for those boys cause they were so young and didn't have the opportunity to make there own decisions on what they liked or didn't like and for them to be introduced to that life style at such a young age and have no one to help them than that is sick. I hope B Raz and his brother get lawyers and round up all those people who they know were affected and maybe even you can get with these guys and build up a strong defense and not let Chris Stokes, him management team, his goons, or anyone he may try to put up against you make you run and hide. I know money talks but in the end God destroyed Sodom and Gamora and this is no different. Too many people seems to have been hurt and no one was there to rescue them. Now this story is out and regardless of what he says about getting high powered lawyers etc etc. Facts speak and whether he goes to jail or not his kingdom will fall just like all the lives he destroyed. And as he said on the video "....I don't do that stuff no more." He never should have done it to begin his past is coming to haunt him. B Raz may have recanted but I still believe it happened no one just comes out like that.
