B2K – what’s the real story?

Former B2K manager Chris Stokes with Marques Houston

Last week, Raz B from former boy group B2K was seen on video confessing to having been sexually abused by former manager Chris Stokes and possibly Marques Houston also.

When the videos of Raz and his brother Ricardo (who claimed to be abused by Stokes years earlier) hit the Internet, Stokes released a statement strongly denying the allegations.

After Stokes’s denial, Raz did a complete turn around, today posting up another video saying all his allegations were “not true”.

Stokes then responded with a statement to 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.”

It’s obvious someone is lying about this gravely serious issue – who that is remains to be seen.

What do you think about the whole situation?

    I think that Mr. Stokes did it i always knew something was wrong with raz b. I thought that maybe he was gay (no offense to raz b i love b2k) he just did not look right in that group. You have to think about this why would somebody in his family accuse him of such a bad crime and two kids came foward. I think that he should have just stuck with the truth because it i will always set you free. God Bless and Raz b keep your head up

  • Money says:

    Chris looks like the type of guy to do that ish.

  • Russ says:

    I believe Raz B. Because no one would just come out & accuse someone of such an act as so & they are male! By being a male & a subject like, that’s kinda embarrassing to talk about! If you look at the video, check out his facial expression while apologizing! Someone told him he better do that apology video so everyone’s careers would not be harmed; protecting themselves! The truth is vulgar!

  • me says:

  • James says:

    Ricardo Thorton-Raz B’s older brother-did a live interiview this morning on my local radio station- that is SACRAMENTO’S 103.5 DABOMB- stating that his younger brother had not been heard of in the last 24hrs since his last blatantly “forced apology”. He believes RazB and their whole family are in danger and emphatically announced that they weren’t after money since they were already “well off”. One thing that really struck a cord with me was the fact that whether or not these brothers are telling the truth Ricardo definitely denounced child abuse, molestation, or any type of taking advantage of young children. Unfortunately, i went thru a similar situation and know what’s it like when nobody believes but a true testatement of faith is to FORGIVE, NOT FORGET and STAND UP FOR YOURSELF NO MATTER WHAT THE COST. Like my momma and grandma always say “man can take everything from you, but your mind”…PEACE & AS-SAALAM-ALAIKUM=)

  • Miss.Jess says:

    I do believe that Chris Stokes did molest Raz-B. I always thought that Chris Stokes was gay && I always felt as though Raz-b was very different from the other boys. I couldn`t put my finger on it then, but now I see why I felt that way. Chris needs to be put in jail if he did commit that crime, because if he did it too Raz-B && his brother, then he must have done it with other boys. I think that it is sad. && If Marques has done the same thing, he should also be put in jail. Hopefully Raz-B wouldn`t lie about it. But why would a man lie about it ? Who knows anymore ?! But all of these videos are on youtube.

  • nae boo says:

  • Bigz says:

    THEM DUDES IS WACK AND BROKE RIGHT NOW THAT THEY HAVE TO MAKE FALSE STATEMENTS JUST TO GET SOME GWOP.

  • flora says:

    I DONT BELIEVE THAT CHRIS STOKES DID THAT ,JUST BECAUSE THE MAN HAS FOUR KIDS OF HIS OWN. I THINK THAT RAZ-B AND HIS BROTHER WERE JUST BORED AND MADE THAT TAPE BECAUSE STOKES IS DOING SOMETHING WITH HIS LIFE AND WHERE IS RAZ-B ……………NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. ITS ALL ABOUT JEALOUSLY. I DONT LIKE HOW CHRIS STOKES BASICALLY HELP LAUNCH THE CAREER OF RAZ B AND B2K AND THEN HES GONNA TURN AROUND AND DO SOMETHING SO STUPID LIKE THAT. ALSO ITS KIND OF FISHY THAT AFTER HE CAME OUT WITH AN APOLOGY VIDEO.RAZ B IS DUMB ASS FUCK AND SO WACK……….LIKE HONESTLY DO DOES THAT? PEOPLE WHO WANT ATTENTION.

  • Natisha says:

    yea, i could care less about wat goes on with them. but some of yall might be on tha DL (down low) so stop hatin plz. That aint a good look.

  • Neco says:

    I believe Raz B is telling the truth. Chris Stokes either paid Raz-B to come out with a tape saying it wasn’t true or Raz-B just doesn’t want to be sued by Marques Huston for slander. I still wonder what was the reason for Raz-B coming out about this now that Omarion and other B2k members have started their own solo careers. I mean it’s been aleast five years since B2k ended. Maybe it’s just an act for publicity for his own solo career.

  • *Myr* says:

    I think it’s true and Chris provoked Raz B to lie.

  • Bong says:

    I head Stokes has ties with some bloods out there and they might have to wash Raz and his brother

    HONESTLY PEOPLE NEED TO STOP F**KING TYPING LIKE THIS JUST SO THEY MAKE SURE PEOPLE SEE THEIR STUPID AZZ COMMENT. STOP GOSSIPING AND SPECULATING. YOU ARE AN IDIOT, GET A LIFE, IT AINT YOUR BUSINESS. that means you tre*05 and “the black P.Hilton” (ughh)

  • kee says:

    First of all this is entertainment if they want to put themselves out there like that then thats them cause it’s surely entertaining the s**t out of me. I know Im gonna listen and make judgement it’s the same as a reqular person puttin all their business in the streets. Second, I know aint no black dude gone come out and say “hey this dude sexually abused me back in the day.” Aint enough money in the world for a black man to say something like that. But on the real, I could care less about what goes on between them that’s their business. If dude didnt want anybody to know he shouldnt have said anything.

  • Jessica and Jamir says:

    Yeah, I think he did it, why he did it I don’t no! That’s just nasty, your own cousin, i guess! That’s very sad and I feel very sorry for him. Chris needs to be locked up somewhere for that!

  • RENEE' says:

  • ~Sweet Meka~ says:

    How can u ppl b so insensitive?????? CHRIS STOKES RAPES LITTLE BOYS!!!!!! He is no better than Michael….He deserves 2 b thrown 2 the f*n sharks…..I hate ppl that cause harm 2 any child….Children dont ask 2 b here, as adults it is our job 2 protect and care 4 them. As the sayin goes, “it takes a village 2 raise a child…” Raz’s mom trusted this man with her kids and look what he did. He did it…..There has been so many “allegations” bout CHRIS DOIN THIS FOWL SHIT!!!!! He has paid his way thru each of them. Yeah he has children but at the same time so does mike! Ricky wanted the tapes out so that others would come out with the truth…I respect that on so many levels….I do not, however, repsect Raz ne more…How can u allow some1 2 put a price on ya goodas, eh? That means u no longer repect urself…. Ne who, there has been many “boys” that he has done that 2. 1 being a young man from American Idol season 3 I believe. (email me Ill find his name 4 u). He came out, following the tapes, with a simular story, (MH, immature, kissing, shower, late nite room visits, Chris setting things up etc…) This whole ordeal has raz and his sexuality all confused….He’s doin gay benefit concerts and taking nude pics…he’s a lost vessel. He needs guidance. He says he’s turned 2 the lord?! How so, when him a gwaan poas bare flic like that? He needs closure, and Ricky knows that. He shouldn’t have taken the money he should have just kept his story str8 b.c kno it makes every1 else’s story seem less credible….Raz I was behind u, wat gwaan, babi? He was afraid is all. Chris has power but most importantly, MONEY….MONEY get u POWER and RESPECT soon follow. F* CHRIS AND HIS WHOLE FAMILY…..IF their goin 2 pretned like he didn’t do this, they should all b tried….I jus had a thought, what if he isn’t molesting his children, mayb they don’t kno??? But in any case F* him. Couldn’t hav been me….Young or not, u caayn pay me enuff fi sell mi pussy. Raz is a shell of a man now, he needs 2 speak out about it. De’mario honey, it’s okay 2 talk bout it….ur supposed 2 b able 2 do so. After I was raped, i let go n let GOD….I didn’t press charges b.c I kno THE ALMIGHTY will protect me from mine enemies…. BUT I WILL NEVER DENY THAT I WAS RAPED….I recognize that admitting it helps…At first u cry every time u talk bout it but u soon realize ur not the blame.
    ([email protected]) I did find @least 3 other ppl that CHRIS has done this 2, that he kept silent with hush money. I do not wish 2 disclose their names on her b.c of privacy issues but CHRIS LIKE LITTLE BWOYS, its true.
