In 2009, former B2K member Raz B shocked fans when he claimed he’d been sexually molested as teen by manager and cousin Chris Stokes and long time friend Marques Houston.
Forced to retract his damning statement by Stokes month later, 2010 saw B strike back with more allegations- this time detailing the alleged abuse.
This,prompting Houston and Stokes to respond,claiming they had taken out a restraining order against the singer.
Now, one month Raz (born Demario Thornton) was inaccurately linked to a ‘tell all’ book exposing a series of unconfirmed affairs between members of his group, ‘Fight For This Love‘ writer Andre Merrit, Chris Brown and Bow Wow, Houston has hit back- labelling him a fame whore.
His comments below…
On his reaction to the molestation claims:
It was a big joke to me. If you think about the time frames [of] when this guy starts up its always around my album coming out, my album release and now my movie release is coming out so he is talking more.
He is lying but its all lies! It’s all BS. He is an attention whore. He wants that attention because B2K was huge and everybody knows how big B2K was and when something like that is stripped from you, and you can’t get any fame you go to the extreme measures and the dude is psycho.
You have to think about who he is mentioning. For one, I don’t even think Raz has ever met Chris Brown. Chris Brown and Raz B have no connection. I know Omarion and Chris Brown are really cool but then he starts mentioning Bow Wow. It’s like, who hasn’t he mentioned? Is he going to mention that God did something to him next?
On whether Raz-B is on drugs
On what would probably happen if the two were in the same room together
Honestly, if we were in the same room together, he is so crazy he would probably try to say whats up to me, like ‘whats up man? Congratulations on the new movie!’ Thats the kind of person he is.
This is all, literally a publicity stunt for him. He has a book he is trying to sell.
Its sad because people don’t understand that, and like I said earlier, it’s like the Eddie Cane situation. Eddie Cane went on drugs and he was the only one that just fell and he tried to come back and I think his whole thing was trying to get the group together and that wasn’t going to happen. So he felt like maybe if I get attention this way…. He was trying to extort Chris [Stokes] for money, he asked for money a couple of times because they are cousins.
He was like ‘I need some money’ […] ‘I’m on the streets right now, I need some money’ and its like when that help is cut off, people feel like ‘well this is what I’m going to say to get money’, and it didn’t work.
On the restraining order he has against Raz-B and his brother
I sued him and his brother and got restraining orders against them and I won so…
On whether Chris Stokes did the same thing
Chris is actually in the process of doing that right now.
On why he has remained quiet
I really haven’t spoken on it because I didn’t feel the need to but now that you’ve brought it up. Its not true. Nothing that he has ever said has been true. Its all lies and its all rumors and its all false, but to the people out there who bought into it shame on you.
While it’s important to note that Raz’s claims are yet to be proven, it’s high time someone called Marques out on this ‘it’s all lies‘ story he’s been pushing.
For, it’s oh so interesting that Chris Stokes is only now in the process of ‘seeking a restraining order’- three years after the ‘you know what’ hit the fan.
As well as this, we also find it strange that neither Stokes or Houston have made any attempt to sue Raz for defamation of character.
After all, if they take the stories seriously enough to seek a restraining order, why not end his lies once and for all with the strong arm of the law-forcing him to back up his allegations in court.
Then,take him straight to the cleaners once the law decides he was indeed being defamatory.
By no means are we ruling out the possibility that Thornton is lying, but if they are ’100%’ fiction and the relationship between all involved was anything but inappropriate, how does Marques explain snaps like these?
