Over the weekend, we wrote about Omarion and how truly unbothered he is about the mother of his children Apryl Jones and his former group member Lil Fizz being in a relationship with one another. But that’s not the only thing he discussed…or avoided when he spoke with Vlad Tv.
For years, Raz B has been speaking about the sexual abuse he experienced at the hands of former B2K manager Chris Stokes. In the years he’s shared his story with the public, his former group members have denied his claims, disparaging his character in the process. But now, Omarion is singing a different tune.
Vlad asked, as you’re going through your life and this guy who’s connected to you is doing all this crazy stuff. How you feel about that?
Omarion: I mean, there were definitely moments where I was really pissed off. I was so upset. But now in my maturity and really understanding where he’s at, I understand more. I understand better. So I kind of let all of that stuff go.
Vlad: He claimed that he was molested by Chris Stokes. What’s your take on that?
Omarion: I definitely think something happened to him. I don’t know what happened to him but I think something happened to him.
Vlad: Between him and Chris?
Omarion: I don’t know. I don’t think it’s for me to really say whether or not anything happened. I didn’t see anything happened. So I don’t know. I can’t speak facts. So I don’t know but the way that he responds to certain things, something traumatic has definitely happened.
Vlad: What was your relationship with Chris Stokes like?
Omarion: Another piece of the puzzle is he was married to my play auntie. And I have nothing to say about him.
Vlad also asked about Raz B’s decision to leaving the tour.
Omarion: What happened was, after that we were able to get him in a better place where he felt comfortable and we were able to finish tour dates. Basically, the last tour date that he was able to be on was in Minneapolis. I don’t remember what date that was. Let me just say this about Raz because he’s a very passionate person. He’s obviously publicly and personally had to deal with some traumatic things. Trauma might be different for you but his heart and his effort has always been that. He’s a good person. He always tries to do his best. He just has some things like we all have that he needs to work out. I believe he’s working on that right now.
