After reading the reports that rapper Andre Johnson, who did work with members of the Wu-Tang Clan band, chopped his own penis off and then leaped from a second story balcony in what must have been an apparent suicide attempt, it leaves a person wondering, why Andre why?
The police discovered him lying on the sidewalk outside of his apartment building in West Hollywood at around 1:00 a.m. Wednesday morning. He was then rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital where he is supposedly listed in critical condition. However one of the hospitals spokespeople stated that they do not release any information on patients so it is unknown for sure what his true condition is.
Johnson also goes by the stage names Andre Roxx and Christ Bearer. He is also part of the rap group Northstar. The founding member of Wu-Tang Clan, RZA, produced Northstar’s debut album.
It still begs the question, why would someone cut off his penis even if he wants to commit suicide? What explanation is there for this?
Two members of Northstar told the public that they lived in the apartment with Johnson and were there when he, without any forewarning, cut his penis off and then leaped off the building. They then explained that by the time they were able to get to Johnson, he had already jumped, gotten back to his feet and was running around screaming at the top of his lungs on the sidewalk.
The rap group members included that they were not on any kind of hard drugs that would cause Johnson to do such a thing. Hollywood police were called to the scene and they stated they found Johnson flat on the sidewalk critically injured.
If he was not on hard drugs, what made him do what he did? Are there any answers?
Johnson was then taken by ambulance to the hospital. It is unknown if surgeons were going to try and attempt to reattach Johnson’s penis or not.
It was first reported that Johnson was found to have cut off his penis and also his testicles but that report was retracted later by the police.
His rap group fellow members repeated to the police that they were not on any hard drugs that would have caused Johnson to do this to himself.
The Wu-Tang website states that Johnson performs as a duo with along with artist Meko under the Northstar name.
They stated that amazingly once he struck the pavement, he was suddenly back up on his feet and running around, while screaming incoherently, although the police have a different story to report.
The reason for his suspected suicide attempt is unclear. His emotional state at the time is also unknown.
Repeating, it has been reported that Andre Johnson, who has done work with the band Wu-Tang Clan chopped his own penis off and then leaped from a second story balcony in what was a supposed suicide attempt. The rapper was discovered lying on the ground outside of his apartment building in West Hollywood at around 1:00 a.m. Wednesday morning. He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital where he is supposedly listed in critical condition.
It is unknown at the present time if physicians were able to reattach Johnson’s penis or not.
