Raz B – Lyft Driver Wants An Apology, After Singer Accused Him Of Stealing
Earlier this month, troubled B2K member Raz B accused a Lyft driver of stealing his Louis Vuitton bag that reportedly contained several expensive items, including an iPad. His bag was returned without any legal ramifications, but now the driver wants an apology for being falsely accused of theft.
During his recent tour stop in Jacksonville, Florida as part of the current Millennium Tour with his group B2K, Raz B took a Lyft to reportedly run errands before the show on May 9th. According to Raz, he left a pricey Louis Vuitton bag filled with other expensive items in the back seat of the car, and when he contacted the driver, Christopher Ross, the man allegedly refused to initially return it.
Raz said at the time:
“THIS LYFT DRIVER HAS MY 2500 BAG AND MY IPAD WE JUST TALKED AND HE WON’T GIVE IT BACK … WHO SHOULD I TALK HERE . THE POLICE ?”
Now, Ross is telling his side of the story and clearing his name. He says he wasn’t even aware that there was a bag left in the back seat of the car until another rider told him. He also stated that the reason why he didn’t initially return the bag is because he smelled marijuana inside it and did not want to risk driving with drugs in his vehicle.
“He called me once. His manager called me, as well as his assistant, asking for the bag to be brought back at an undisclosed location. I’m not driving with drugs on me.”
When he told Raz the reason he didn’t want to bring him the bag, the B2K singer admitted that marijuana was inside, saying:
“I have a medical card that allows me to carry that.”
Ross said he then transported the bag and handed it over to officers, who promptly confiscated the marijuana inside, but did not press any charges against him.
However, he still wants a simple apology from Raz because Lyft is how he provides for his family:
“This is a job that I do for my family. Now I probably lost wages because the minute somebody sees my face, I’m known as the Lyft driver that stole from Raz B. He could have just apologized.”
At press time, Raz B has not issued an apology, but he has removed the initial posts about the Lyft incident from his Instagram, as his page has recently been wiped clean with the exception of only two remaining posts.
