Raz-B placed on life support in Chinese hospital

Former B2K singer RAZ-B has been placed on life support at a hospital in China a day after undergoing facial surgery following a vicious bottle attack at a nightclub on Thursday (15Aug13).

The 28 year old, real name De'Mario Thornton, was performing when a fight broke out in the crowd. The star allegedly tried to break up the altercation when he was smacked in the face with a glass bottle.

Raz-B was arrested, along with the two warring crowd members, but subsequently released without charge.

He required a surgical procedure to treat a severe gash to his lip and received four stitches, telling TMZ.com, "F**k this s**t hurts. I have a f**king hole in my lip. Thank God I made it to the hospital."

But now it appears Raz-B's health has taken a turn for the worse - his publicist, Toy Jones, tells TMZ, "He is in a coma and needs as many prayers as possible."

Reports suggest the singer was taken to hospital after he failed to wake up on Friday morning (16Aug13), and doctors determined he was in a bad condition.

He spent much of Friday slipping in and out of consciousness, breathing from a ventilator.
