The statement added, “The incident comes after a long history of publicly documented trauma for the musician, and difficulties coping with its aftermath. Raz B will not perform with B2K at Wednesday night’s Minneapolis show.”

The B2K singer has reportedly taken “full responsibility” his actions. “The incident represents a turning point after years of isolation, suppressed emotions, and unhealthy coping mechanisms in response to childhood trauma,” the statement said.

Addressing how the singer plans to move forward, the statement said, “He intends to seek treatment to become a better man and grow beyond the pain of his worse mistakes.”

On Wednesday, TMZ reported that the singer and his girlfriend were involved in an argument that turned physical outside of a Macy’s store in Minneapolis. Raz’s girlfriend reportedly shared news of the assault with a family member, who encouraged her to call the police. The singer was arrested and charged with domestic assault by strangulation.
