B2K Singer Comes Off Life Support
Ex-B2K singer Raz-B has made a ‘miraculous’ recovery after being on life support following a nightclub attack in China.
He came out of his life-threatening coma on Sunday, and is stable, breathing on his own, smiling and responsive.
According to TMZ he is yet to be released from hospital, where he shall stay for a few more days for observation.
A representative of the star revealed doctors say it’s a miracle that he survived.
The 28-year-old was smashed across the face with a glass bottle whilst making an appearance at a venue in China on Thursday evening.
The RnB favourite was there to perform onstage, and at one point stepped in to break up a fight which erupted in the crowd.
It was during the fracas he subsequently had a bottle broken on his face.
Several hours later he underwent minor surgery to patch up a large cut he sustained on his lip, but the following day, the rapper failed to wake up and one of his back-up dancers rushed him to hospital.
Raz-B’s publicist had urged fans to pray for his client, saying: ‘He is in a coma and needs as many prayers as possible,’ Toy Jones told TMZ.
This isn’t the first time the star has been severely injured.
Last year he nearly died after falling through a sliding glass door, again whilst on a trip to China to perform.
He sustained horrific injuries, including a slashed wrist.
The singer, born De’Mario Monte Thornton, lost a near-fatal amount of blood following his hazardous trip and was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.
At the time, Raz told TMZ that he ‘tripped hard inside his room… and when he tried to break his fall, he crashed through a sliding glass door’.
As he tweeted a rather gruesome snapshot of his gauged wound, he wrote: ‘MAN…. Cherish life and your loved one’s. You just never know. THANK YOU LORD FOR SAVING MY LIFE.’
Fortunately, Raz was with a companion at the time of the fall who was able to alert the hotel and call an ambulance – as the Bump Bump Bump singer passed out at the sight of gushing blood.
While the doctors at Huashan Hospital Fudan University worked their magic during a five hour procedure, Raz was still forced to cancel his remaining tour dates so he can recover.
Raz-B also hit headlines in 2012 when he became embroiled in an online war with Chris Brown.
The No Air star took dislike to a comment that Raz made in a tell-all book, claiming Brown had been involved in a same-sex romance with rising star Andre Merritt.
Chris tweeted: ‘Lying on someone in a book to sell it is called “defamation of character”! Don’t believe the bulls**t.’
