No one likes being the victim of a hoax, but in this case we’re glad that’s what it was.
We recently told you about singer Raz B being in a coma after getting attacked after a concert in China, but that wasn’t the case!
Raz B was hurt, but he was never in a coma. His rep said:
"The comments about Raz being in a coma did not come from his official representative."
The saddest part was Raz B’s brother Ricky Romance was duped like everyone else! He explained:
“[I was] misled by unknown reasons. I was unfortunately unable to contact my brother at the time and then panicked. I then alerted as many people of this information hoping to gather facts… Since the source that gave me this information was what I thought to be legitimately reliable I didn't question I just believed. I apologize if I seem like I jumped to conclusions but a coma is a serious situation and it was concerning my brother whom is my best friend as well. I sincerely apologize for the confusion I caused if that is the case."
Can someone please get these two some international phones?!
There’s still some back-and-forth between Toy Jones, who is believed to have originally put the coma information out there, and Raz B’s camp who maintains that he was never in a coma.
In the end, rumors are terrible, but all that truly matters is that Raz B and his golden larynx are safe and sound!
