Raz B is behind bars after being arrested for domestic violence early Wednesday (May 1) morning, TMZ reports. 

According to the entertainment news site, the B2K singer was taken into custody for assault by strangulation after allegedly abusing his girlfriend in Minneapolis. Authorities reportedly took photos of her alleged injuries, and Raz is currently being held without bail.

As fans know, the singer is in the middle of his B2K reunion tour and has a concert scheduled for Wednesday night in Minneapolis. The “Millennium Tour” has ten more stops left on its run, however it looks like Raz’s involvement is up in the air, leaving J-BoogLil’ Fizz and Omarion to pick up the pieces.

In March, Raz threatened to quit the tour, but changed his mind only hours later, saying he’s “a work in progress.”

“I appreciate the outpouring of love, empathy, and understanding from my supporters. I look forward to continuing the Millennium Tour for our fans,” Raz wrote on his Instagram Story. “You all deserve it!”

The B2K singer’s message to his fans came after he wrote a previous Instagram Story update that stated he was “officially off the tour” because he didn’t feel safe. “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. So guess what? I’m off the tour. Good luck to everybody.”

“No disrespect to [Omarion] because he’s my brother,” he continued. “[Omarion] if you come talk to me and want me to do this tour I’ll do this tour, but I’m officially off the tour, okay?” Raz then directed his IG story rant at Chris, saying he’s ready to shoot a Surviving R. Kelly style documentary about the 53-year-old manager and producer. “I guess we’re about to shoot the new Surviving Chris Stokes movie,” Raz said. “So call Lifetime cause I’m ready to talk.”

In 2007, Raz, as well as his brother, Ricardo “RickyRomantic” Thornton, accused Chris of sexually abusing them as children. Chris denied the allegations, as did Omarion, who said he backed Chris “with no question whatsoever.”
