Wu-Tang Clan deny affiliation with rapper who cut off own penis
Andre Johnson of Northstar allegedly attempted suicide in Los Angeles yesterday
Andre Johnson, otherwise known as Christ Bearer, is a member of the hip hop group Northstar. In the early hours of yesterday (April 16) morning he cut off his penis and then jumped from a second floor balcony in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. He was found in a critical state on the pavement and was rushed to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center hospital. The rapper was said to be affiliated with Wu-Tang Clan as his group was discovered by RZA in 1998 and in 2004 released 'Bobby Digital Presents Northstar', which was produced by RZA under an alias.
However, Gawker reports that a post on Wutangclan.com, which has since been deleted, apparently read: "Parental Advisory : Don't Believe The HYPE. This Mother Fucker Ain't Got Shit to do with The WUTANG Brand."
TMZ reports that doctors at the hospital were unable to reattach Johnson's penis but added that he is currently in a stable condition. Fellow rappers, who live in the same building as Johnson told TMZ that they say they weren't on "any hard drugs that would cause him to do such a thing" but also said that they believe Johnson may have "mental issues".
