Doctors were unable to reattach the severed penis of rapper Andre Johnson, who cut if off, then jumped two stories in a failed suicide attempt early Wednesday morning (April 16).
Johnson, who raps under the name Christ Bearer with Wu-Tang Clan subset Northstar, was discovered on the sidewalk at 1 a.m. in North Hollywood, TMZ reports. He was rushed to Cedars Sinai Hospital in Beverly Hills, where he was reportedly in critical condition.
Other members of Northstar who live in the same building as Christ Bearer said the self-mutilation came suddenly and without warning. They said Johnson was not on “any hard drugs.”
Original reports claimed that the victim was rapper Andre Roxx. The Wu-Tang Clan Brand Instagram later denounced those accusations, posting a photo with the following caption, announcing that Roxx, whom was originally misreported as the victim, is not a affiliate of the Wu. Wu-Tang captioned the photo, ”Parental Advisory : Don’t Believe The HYPE. This Mother Fucker Ain’t Got Shit to do with WUTANG ..~Mr .TANG Www.WuTangclan.com.”
A spokesman from the Wu-Tang Clan confirmed to XXL that Christ Bearer was in a group signed to Wu Tang Productions 10 years ago but is not directly affiliated with the clan. Johnson/Christ Bearer hasn’t done any work with RZA or the Clan in years.
