281×211.jpgA day after former B2K manager Chris Stokes vehemently denied allegations that he sexually molested former members of the boy band while serving as their manager, his accuser, former B2K member DeMario “Raz-B” Thornton, has apologized. In a 30-second video posted on YouTube on Wednesday, Thornton stands outside on a city street and recants the sordid accusations he and older brother Ricardo “Ricky Romantic” Thornton had made in a pair of videos that circulated over the weekend.

“This is DeMario Thornton, publicly known as Raz-B of B2K,” a solemn-looking Thornton tells the camera in the video, called “The Truth About Chris Stokes B2K Part 3.” “I would like to send a public apology for some tapes that were leaked without my authority. I just want to say that those allegations are not true … with Chris Stokes and Marques Houston, and I apologize for any hurt this may have caused publicly [or] financially.”

Stokes reacted to the new video in a statement released Thursday (December 27) morning. “I’m happy that DeMario ‘Raz-B’ Thornton and Ricardo Thornton realized their mistakes and admitted to lying,” he said. “I have always supported my family and have always been a stand-up person. I knew that the truth would eventually come to light.”

Thornton’s abrupt turn-around came just hours after Stokes told MTV News that the allegations were false. His denials were seconded by another former B2K member, Omarion.

“I’m not gay. And I’m married. And I have four kids. I been with my wife for 16 years,” Stokes told MTV in an exclusive interview. “And I’m not a child molester. So those are all false allegations. I’m gonna sue them. And I owe that to my wife and kids, period. It’s ridiculous.”

    WTH?! What kind of person lies about such a thing?! I don’t know what to think.. Was he pressured to apologize? I am speechless..

  • tfields

    Why, do I not believe him. Why do I think he is trying to cover this thing up now. I believe this abuse did happen to him and his brother. This is just damage control. He don’t even sound no where near believable in that apology video. Something happened to shut him up, there is too much detail in his abuse youtube video to believe nothing went down. Chris Stokes was abused and now he is the abuser, it always, always happens that way. That behavior is learned thats why you definitely got to watch your SONS not just your daughters when they are alone with teenage boys and men older then themselves. I believe they were abused!

  • I haven’t seen any of the videos yet. If he in fact did lie why would he lie about something like that? The apology came so quick that makes me believe that he was forced to do it also.

  • Just to be real

    THIS MAKES NO SINCE. RAZ TALK ABOUT THE BIBLE AND GOES AND DOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS. I GUESS HE SEES THAT THEY ARE DOING SO WELL THAT HE WOULD COME UP WITH THESE ALAGATIONS WHY? NOW IF IT IS TRUE BE TRUE AND STICK WITH THE TRUTH DON’T BRING PEOPLE DOWN. I HOPE THAT MARQUES AND OMARION COME OUT SOON AND GIVE A STATEMENT ON THIS MATTER TO CLEAR THERE NAMES THAT HAVE BEEN DRUGED IN THE DIRT.
