Raz B

BOTTLE TO THE FACE

Singer Hospitalized After Nightclub Attack

EXCLUSIVE

0815_raz_b_wmRaz-B -- the former B2K singer -- was hospitalized in China yesterday after someone smashed him in the mouth with a glass bottle ... turning his face into a bloody mess.

The 28-year-old R&B star was performing at a nightclub in Zhejiang (birthplace of Qian Xuesen -- the "Father of Chinese Rocketry" ... yay science!).

Raz's rep tells TMZ ... during the performance, he noticed a fistfight in the crowd and went to go break it up -- when someone swung a bottle right into his moneymaker, causing several cuts ... including a deep gash on his lip.

We're told the Chinese police immediately stepped in ... grabbing the attacker AND Raz -- and dragging them both to jail.

Cops quickly released Raz after determining he did nothing wrong. Raz's rep says cops made the bottle thrower fork over roughly $5,000 to pay for Raz's medical expenses.

After the drama at the police station, Raz was finally taken to a hospital, where he underwent a 1-hour surgical procedure to repair the "hole" in his lip. The wound also required 4 stitches.

Raz issued a statement to TMZ saying, "F**k this s**t hurts. I have a f**king hole in my lip. Thank god I made it to the hospital."

Raz -- who's been in living in China for the past 3 years -- says he doesn't plan on pursuing legal action. He also says he plans to move back to the U.S. before the end of the year to focus on a "big comeback."

well at least now everyone knows where he was "hiding" - time for plan b - maybe he was hiding from someone or something? its an odd place for an american hiphop r&b "star" to be living for 3 years, uncle sam / tmz found you now anyway - and who goes into a crowd to break up a fight nothing to do with him? from a stage? really??

If you're a singer then sing. Let security do their own job.

Poor baby, looks like he's had an allergic reaction to the lead-based paint in his toys. He's also lucky they didn't beat him up with a pair of chopsticks
