Raz-B

ON LIFE SUPPORT

Comatose After Bottle Attack

R&B singer Raz-B is currently on life support in a hospital in China ... just one day after he was smashed in the face with a bottle at a nightclub, TMZ has learned.

We spoke to Raz's publicist, Toy Jones, who tells us, "He is in a coma and needs as many prayers as possible."

As we previously reported, the 28-year-old was performing at a club in China on Thursday and was smashed in the face with a glass bottle while trying to break up a fight that erupted in the crowd.

Raz received medical attention hours after the incident --and underwent minor surgery to repair a gash in his lip.

But the next day, sources close to Raz tell us he didn't wake up ... and Raz's backup dancer rushed him to a nearby hospital for treatment.

We're told doctors tested for brain activity and determined the situation was dire. Sources say Raz is breathing from a ventilator ... and has been slipping in and out of consciousness.

Story developing ...

China of all places, it's like those guys who fight in Iraq & Afghanistan, don't get a scratch, then come home & get killed in a car accident.

This is precisely why you stay out of fights in which you don't belong. As long as someone isn't getting their rear handed to them unfairly of course...

China is one of the most miserable places on the face of the earth. There is a reason when college students from China study abroad 9 out of 10 never return.
