As we all know there is always more than one side to every story, but when it comes down to B2K it’s oddly always three sides within a four man group!
While appearing on ‘The Breakfast Club’ morning show, Omarion addresses questions surrounding the brotherhood of his former boy band B2K for the very first time.
Let’s just take the concept of brotherhood, right? Everybody has a different version of that, unfortunately, because some people don’t actually have siblings,” explained Omarion.
“It means different things to different people, so, I will say in one aspect in our journey, we were put together to be brothers, you know what I’m saying? But I don’t think in essence we were. I think that there were a lot of people that made sure that we connected and then disconnected.”
He speaks on his feeling towards the Apryl Jones and Fizz dynamic which turned up his “Unbother.”
“I heard, and you know, it really turned up ‘my unbothered’ in a whole another way,” Omarion said. “I knew that what he was doing was on purpose. And it didn’t really prove anything. At the end of the day, you have to recognize that people make their own choices. And most of the time, it has nothing to do with you. So he made that choice. And I don’t think it was a smart choice.”
He continues in explaining that him and Fizz had reached a new level of brotherhood when they reconnected a few years ago.
“Anybody that is around me, I am obviously comfortable with them. So to say that, ‘We ain’t close’—when me and [Lil] Fizz linked back up, it was definitely some synergy,” Omarion stated. “He definitely had a different personality. And I would say that he was more humble—he needed something. When we [were] hanging out, that’s what the vibe was.
“We were going on bike rides—we were essentially getting back to a new level of brotherhood. And there were times that he came over and he was dealing with other girls. And he came over while [Apryl and I were] in a relationship. His invitation to be on ‘Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood’ and all of that. So that’s why I said it ‘turned up my unbothered’ because I knew it was intentional. Like, ‘what do you get from this? Do you think you won a contest or something?’”
Omarion also addressed Raz-B feeling triggered by his shared documentary clip that he says was signed off on.
“I think for Raz, it’s interesting,” Omarion said. “You know he obviously is intelligent enough to see an opportunity to speak about things and use it to his advantage. I never heard him say he’s been triggered. On tour, I had offered him opportunities to better his process, and he didn’t take those opportunities.”
“The thing that is tough for me, and a lot of people to understand, is that I’m the type of brother that you have to hold your bother accountable,” he continued. “So when he said he was triggered, I think that is something that he could have felt. But if people actually watch the docu, I was there supporting him. Although that small clip was out there, me and my team were supporting him. Asking him what he needed, trying to figure out our best to help him with these traumatic things that he’s been through. So I think that it’s interesting that… that was the part he chose to sign off on for the documentary.”
This all takes place just weeks after Fizz, J-Boog and Raz appeared on ‘Drink Champs’
