Raz B lied about coma to get publicity?

Former B2K member, Raz B, never went into a coma after getting in a fight in China. According to CNN, the entire Raz B incident was a hoax.

Last week, reports surfaced that Raz B was hit in the head with a bottle while trying to break up a a fight during a performance in Shanghai. Although Raz B’s reps claim that he did receive injuries during a fight, they also said the injuries were non life-threatening.

The story of Raz B in a coma first broke on a celebrity blog that named Toy Jones as the main source. But when contacted by CNN, Jones would not give the name of the hospital where Raz B was being treated. Also, Jones later called CNN and told the outlet that he made a full recovery just hours after falling into the coma.

Raz B also sent an email to CNN and asked them not to publish a story on the incident. On Monday, Raz B’s reps revealed that the entire story was a hoax and they distanced themselves from Toy Jones.

However, Jones revealed that she was hired by Raz B’s family to promote the story to the media. There is a good chance that Raz B cried wolf to gain publicity after years of not being in the spotlight.

    Raz B’s Manager Mike Neely surprisingly called in to my radio show on Tuesday night and talked about the hoax not being Raz B’s Fault. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/survive3652/2013/08/21/ambizion-radio-w-damitra-stuart-1
