Omarion has released an official statement regarding the damaging Youtube.com video statements made by Raz B and his brother. As we posted earlier this week Raz B has gone publically on record stating that Chris Stokes molested himself and other members of B2K, and also his brother Ricardo Thorton. Omarion released this statement today
I want to be on the record as saying that “Raz B” Thorton and Ricardo Thorton are lying regarding Chris Stokes. Chris is a father figure to myself, and many others in the industry. He’s guided us, helped raised us and is nothing more than an inspiration and someone I respect to and look up to. I have spent countless hours, days, weeks and months with the man since the age of 5 and have never once seen him behave inappropriately. He’s married to my aunt and I know this man very well. I stand behind him with no question whatsoever. I have grown up around Chris and this is crazy to me. These people have damaged me, and my reputation and I won’t stand silent and will do all within my means to speak the truth about this matter.
These allegations and videos have been flying back and forth on the net since Dec. 24th. Chris Stokes had even more to say about the videos and possible charges that could go against Raz B and his brother:
Allow me to further elaborate on certain comments I have seen reported: I understand from my attorneys that it’s against the law in California to record someone on the phone without letting them know they are being taped as was the case in this situation. These individuals released video with doctored audio – I did not say what they accuse me of saying in the context in which it was taken – all statements which were attributed to me were doctored. I vehemently deny these charges and intend on taking very aggressive action to defend my honor. It’s also quite ironic that these statements were made only 2 weeks after they were denied admittance by a venue for an event I hosted in Beverly Hills.
This case is getting more interesting by the moment and it is hard to figure out what is real and what is not. If Raz B is telling the truth then him and his brother and other members of B2K need to get into therapy and Chris Stokes needs to go to jail. NO charges at all have been brought up against Chris Stokes and no other videos as of yet have been released from Raz B and his brother. It will be interesting to see how this further plays out. But something fishy is going on.
