*Raz-B of B2K is still showing signs of being paranoid and being troubled by his past. Put it this way, he’s back with the group and its 35-date reunion tour after notifying fans that he was quitting the tour.

“I am a work in progress,” Raz said in an Instagram Story update early Wednesday. “I appreciate the outpouring of love, empathy, and understanding from my supporters.”

That update followed another one in which he said he didn’t feel safe on the road because of Chris Stokes, B2K’s former manager/producer.

“Actually, let me correct myself,” he said. “Raz-B is actually off the tour. I don’t feel safe because I feel like Chris Stokes is around. I’m off the tour.”

It was back in 2007 when Raz accused Stokes of sexually abusing him as a child. His brother, Ricardo “Ricky Romantic” Thornton, made similar allegations against Stokes. Among other things, Raz characterized Stokes as an “incest perpetrator” who allegedly took advantage of him during his time with the group.

Obviously what did or didn’t happen involving Chris Stokes and Raz-B is still an issue for him. He even so far as to tag the official Lifetime TV account and proposed a “Surviving R. Kelly style documentary about Stokes.

“I’m ready to talk,” he said.

Stokes, along with Omarion (B2K’s front man), denied the allegations.

“I want to be on the record as saying that ‘Raz-B’ Thornton and Ricardo Thornton are lying regarding Chris Stokes,” Omarion told MTV at the time, adding that Stokes was a “father figure” to himself and others in the music business. “I stand behind him with no question whatsoever,” he said.

In conjunction with the announcement of the B2K Millennium Tour back in Dec./Jan., Stokes again denied the allegations and said he wishes the group well moving forward.

If you’re a B2K fan and you’re in the Rochester, NY area tomorrow, March 14, the Millennium Tour is scheduled for a stop at the Blue Cross Arena.
