B2K’s very own Raz B took it to social media to let his fans know that he has quit the Millennium Tour. He let everyone know that he does not feel safe with Chris Stokes around. Chris Stokes, B2K Ex-Manager, was previously accused of sexually abusing members of B2K a few years ago. While other B2K members barely spoke on this subject Raz B seems to be traumatized from his past experiences with Stokes. During the social media announcement, Raz B also said “ No disrespect to Omarion because he's my brother. Omarion if you want to come talk to me and you want me to do the tour, I'll do the tour, but I'm officially off the tour.”
Thoughtout the years Raz B has spoke on this subject multiple times. Even letting the public know that other members of B2K went through the same thing. During a 2007 MTV interview Omarion said:
"I want to be on the record as saying that 'Raz-B' Thornton and Ricardo Thornton are lying regarding Chris Stokes," Omarion said. "Chris is a father figure to myself and many others in the industry. He's guided us, helped raised us and is nothing more than an inspiration and someone I respect and look up to. I have spent countless hours, days, weeks and months with the man — since the age of 5 — and have never once seen him behave inappropriately. He's married to my aunt, and I know this man very well. I stand behind him with no question whatsoever. I have grown up around Chris, and this is crazy to me. These people have damaged me and my reputation. I won't stand silent and will do all within my means to speak the truth about this matter." Omarion obviously did not want to be apart of this situation. Chris Stokes denies all allegations till this day. Oh, and if you didn’t know well Omarion is Chris Stokes nephew. Was this Omarion's way to save Chris Stokes?
If everyone knows how Raz B feels about Chris Stokes they should of banned him from the tour. Raz B should be able to feel comfortable during his tour. He’s even gone through years of therapy in order to cope with his past. Hours after he released his video he came back to Instagram to let his fans know that he’s back on the Millennium Tour.
So whats next for B2K and the Millennium Tour? Hopefully this Chris Stokes situation will be addressed and fixed soon. We wouldn’t want to see the whole tour get cancelled.
