B2K Founder Chris Stokes Denies Alleged Sexual/Financial Abuse: “I never hurt any of B2K!”
Early 2000s boy band B2K is hot right now, and so is the topic of sexual abuse. Amid the first airing of the three-part docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly,” social media is swarming with debates about inappropriate sexual interactions within the music industry – specifically regarding under-aged talent and their adult counterparts. Because of this, a conversation is being rehashed on social media about alleged sexual and financial abuse within B2K’s camp. Their former T.U.G. Records label head and manager, Chris Stokes, is adamant that he never violated any of his talent. He tweeted:
“@chrisstokes1969 Negativity I will never play into. I never hurt any of B2K & Always had their best interest at heart including financially. I forgive any negative energy or tweets! God forgives and so do I. They back! Now stay positive in 2019 & Go get your tix! Enjoy them being back! Much love!”
However, fans aren’t convinced. Twitter user @GawdessEnergy was one of those skeptical fans. She addressed Chris with this tweet:
“@GawdessEnergy If it’s “false”, why would someone go out their way to damage their business relationship(s) to say they were raped by you, a money hungry manager, if you didn’t do it? Why would they be broke after tourinf when they were selling records like candy? Make it make sense. Jesus”
Chris Stokes continued to denied taking advantage of B2K’s success:
“@chrisstokes1969 They did have money! And nobody ever did nothing to them. Positive energy is key. Be happy they back and get your tickets. Take care.”
Twitter user @Mrs_B055 also had an opinion:
Last year, B2K member Raz B addressed the molestation rumors against Chris Stokes that many believe he started in an interview with VladTV.
B2K will reunite this year on the “Millenium Tour,” which kicks off in Pittsburgh, PA on March 8, 2019.
