Former B2K Singer Raz B Continues Molestation Accusations Against Chris Stokes, Marques Houston

Comments (87)

Editor's Note: Pedophilia is NOT homosexuality.

A few years back, former B2K singer De'Mario Thornton, better known as Raz B, made allegations that his ex-manager and cousin Chris Stokes, and fellow singer Marques Houston sexually molested him. And, two years ago, Vibe magazine did an investigative report to uncover the truth behind whether molestation really did cause both the hitmaking group and the Marques Houston-led group IMX to break up.

Raz B is speaking out again about his torrid past and how at 25 years old he's ready to tell the world the truth about what really went down with the platinum R&B group splitting at the top of their career.

In addition to doing several notable interviews, he's released YouTube video footage of conversations with Houston's sister and father discussing the abuse.Previously, he recanted his earlier statements of abuse in a Youtube video, and offered up a public apology to the two men.

But now, he's back and sticking to his story that he is not lying nor is he bipolar as Omarion alleged.

According to the Cleveland native, from the ages of 13 until 17 he was sexually abused by Houston -- who he said he "feels sorry for" -- and Stokes, who wrote and directed the hit movie 'You Got Served.'

"People ask, 'Why are you coming out now?'" he told Vibe.com in a recent interview. "But, this has been going on for a very long [time], Chris has been molesting boys for a while."

Raz B, who appeared on the popular Logo television series 'Noah's Arc' added, "Finally when I was able to realize [that they] were gay, I was able to leave."

He said his realization that the abuse was wrong was late because he was living with Stokes and brainwashed. "I was a young kid and these people took advantage of me," he alleged.

When asked why he did not take legal measures against the duo, he responded, "That's a demonic system."

Raz B said that he is comfortable with his sexuality and did not deny attending gay pride parades in the past.

To date, he stands by his admission that he's never been romantically involved with another man and he does not identify with being homosexual. When Vibe asked if he would embrace it if he thought he was gay, he flat out denied that he would citing "from my beliefs, I just wouldn't."

"I support humanity the world being of children and taking care of the earth. That's why I can appear anywhere. If you want me at your pride event feel free to ask, I will come. Some of my biggest checks come from the homosexuality," Raz B revealed.

In addition to having a girlfriend with whom he's been with for four years, he also has a five year-old son.

The former teen star says that he doesn't need to speak with a psychologist and get additional therapeutic help to discuss the abuse because "the only help I will ever need is Jesus Christ."

Raz B is currently working on a new solo album and has been in talking with Will.I.Am and hopes to get the Black Eyed Peas front-man in the studio for a collaboration soon.

"I told him I have a record I really want him to hear," Raz B said. "It's hard catching up with some of these producers. A lot of people don't want to be associated with messy situations."

Stokes and Houston has yes to release comment about the claims.
