Omarion Speaks On His ‘Brotherhood’ W/ Estranged B2K Members: There Were A Lot Of People That Made Sure That We Connected & Then Disconnected
It looks like Omarion is ready to open up about his relationship with his former group members.
During a recent interview with ‘The Breakfast Club,’ Omarion discussed his new book “Unbothered: The Power of Choosing Joy”. He also opened up about the fallout he had with his former group members and the misconceptions about their relationship over the years.
When asked how B2K was able to coexist on tour together despite not seeing eye to eye and having some tension between them, Omarion focused on the concept of brotherhood and how some outside influences caused turmoil within the group. He said,
“Everybody has a different version of [brotherhood], unfortunately. Because some people actually don’t have siblings, it means different things to different people. I would say in one aspect through our journey, we were put together to be brothers. I don’t think in essence we were. There were a lot of people that made sure that we connected and then disconnected.”
“It’s almost like we were made to be brothers to be secret enemies.”
Omarion goes on to explain what he believes brotherhood entails.
“I believe in real brotherhood, jealousy doesn’t exist…It never makes you vindictive, it never makes you jealous. It never makes you go past a certain point. With our journey, things have gone way past go.”
“In the aspect of our journey, we have a brotherhood, but in reality I wouldn’t say that they identify as what I consider my brother…Somebody that loves you, they don’t do certain things, they don’t say certain things. “
Earlier this month, while appearing on “Drink Champs,” Fizz, J. Boog, and Raz B discussed the breakup of B2K and the issues the group members have had throughout the years.
Last month, Raz B had some things to say about Omarion’s new docuseries, OMEGA: THE GIFT & THE CURSE.
Recently, Omarion took to his Instagram to share an exclusive clip from the now-controversial film, which showed an emotional Raz-B having a breakdown backstage on The Millennium Tour. In the sneak peek, Raz-B appears to be upset after noticing that fellow group mate J-Boog was sporting a t-shirt that read the words: I Don’t Feel Safe.
Apparently, the quote triggered Raz-B because it mocked a previous statement that he’d made in regard to Chris Stokes. As you may recall, at the height of The Millennium Tour, Raz-B bowed out of the multi-city run due to suspensions that Chris Stokes was in the vicinity and his well-being was being put in harm’s way.
Raz-B was seemingly having a hard time understanding why Omarion chose to chronicle the vulnerable moment during the filming of OMEGA: THE GIFT & THE CURSE.
Following the snippet of the documentary, Raz-B responded by stating that he was “disgusted” by Omarion “exploiting his personal moments” but would expand on the matter once he could prepare the right words to say.
“I’m disgusted by these actions…. Soon as the lord gives me the words… I will be speaking on this ….. smh Lord why would they exploit my personal moments… This is traumatizing.”
As of now, the other B2K members have yet to respond to Omarion’s recent comments during his interview with ‘The Breakfast Club.’
