Raz-B, the 28-year-old founding member of B2K, remains on life support in China after his attempts to break up a fight after a performance went awry, according to MTV News, The Huffington Post and TMZ.

The artist, whose real name is De'Mario Monte Thornton, was performing at a nightclub on Thursday when a fight erupted in the crowd and he was hit in the face with a glass bottle while trying to break it up, The Huffington Post reports. After Raz-B and his attacker were questioned by the police, the artist was taken to the hospital where he underwent minor surgery for a cut on his lip. He also had scratches on his face.

Raz-B was released that night, but brought back to the hospital on Friday by backup dancers after he was unable to wake up, according to MTV News.

The singer's publicist Toy Jones released a statement to TMZ saying, "He is in a coma and needs as many prayers as possible."

The singer, known for singles like "Girlfriend," "Bump, Bump, Bump" and his role in the movie "You Got Served," has been injured in China before, according to MTV News. He fell through a glass window at a Shanghai Hotel in 2012, damaging his nerves.

I'm not sure if this is entirely true. The day this news broke, there was this article, and there was one who said how he was released and actually submitted comments after leaving, saying how he was going to move back to the US soon and focus on a comeback.

I guess the coma story is true. Global Grind just posted this story, that he is okay and off life support. Praise God.
