Raz B temporarily steps down from Millennium Tour
After another week of controversial headlines, the singer is stepping away to focus on “his health and well-being.”
B2K member Raz B has officially decided to take a break from the group’s Millennium Tour.
In a recent Instagram post, B2K announced that Raz B, whose real name is De’ Mario Thornton, has decided to take some time away from the tour.
“Raz B has made the brave decision to take some time off to focus on his health and well-being, and will not be performing at the Florida dates of The Millennium Tour,” the post said. “We send our love and full support to our brother as he embarks on this self care journey. We love you all and can’t wait to see you in Jacksonville! Love, B2K”
The news came a day after Raz B accused a Jacksonville Lyft driver of stealing his personal items. The singer posted a screenshot of the driver with the caption, “LYFT DRIVER HAS MY 2500 BAG AND MY IPAD WE JUST TALKED AND HE WON’T GIVE IT BACK … WHO SHOULD I TALK HERE. THE POLICE ?”
Reportedly, Raz was able to get his belongings back with the help of Jacksonville authorities. He posted the items in an Instagram Story post following the incident.
Now, the driver is looking for an apology from Raz following the incident making headlines.
According to local Jacksonville news station First Coast News, the Lyft driver, Christopher Ross, said he didn’t realize the items were in the car until they were discovered by another rider.
“This is a job that I do for my family,” he told the news outlet. “Now I probably lost wages because the minute somebody sees my face, I’m known as the Lyft driver that stole from Raz B.”
Ross also claims that after being contacted by Raz’s manager, assistant and even Raz B himself, he refused to return the bag because it smelled like Canibus.
“He called me once. His manager called me, as well as his assistant, asking for the bag to be brought back at an undisclosed location,” Ross said. “I’m not driving with drugs on me.”
Ross said he then dropped the bag off at a local police substation where authorities reported confiscated the weed. Ross wasn’t charged for the incident.
“He could have just apologized,” Ross said. Raz B has since removed the post.
