Raz-B coma reports false

Reports suggesting former B2K star Raz-B fell into a coma following a bottle attack in a Chinese nightclub are false, according to the musician's agent and brother. A person claiming to be the singer's publicist declared the musician slipped into a coma following facial surgery to treat injuries he received during a nightclub altercation in Zhejiang last week (14Aug13). Spokesperson Toy Jones told the press, "He is in a coma and needs as many prayers as possible."
Jones then revealed the star made a miraculous recovery and was stabilised over the weekend (17-18Aug13), but Raz-B's agent now claims the coma story was not true.
Elayne Rivers says, "The comments about Raz being in a coma did not come from his official representative", while the star's brother, singer Ricky Romance, insists he had been "misled by unknown reasons (sic)."
He has also apologised for unwittingly spreading the misinformation.
A statement from Romance to CNN reads, "I was unfortunately unable to contact my brother at the time and then panicked. I then alerted as many people of this information hoping to gather facts... Since the source that gave me this information was what I thought to be legitimately reliable, I didn't question I just believed. I apologise if I seem like I jumped to conclusions but a coma is a serious situation and it was concerning my brother whom is my best friend as well. I sincerely apologise for the confusion I caused if that is the case."
