A representative for the Wu-Tang Clan released an official statement clarifying Andre Johnson's reported affiliation with the legendary hip hop group.

Andre Johnson cut off his penis before jumping from an L.A. apartment building in a suicide attempt last week, and has been tied to Wu-Tang in the media.

Clearly, the group is trying to carefully distance itself from him.

"I feel terrible for what happened to Andre Johnson," Wu-Tang publicist Heathcliff Berry said. "I hope he finds peace and gets the help that he needs."

"I feel terribly for his family, but he is not in Wu-Tang Clan."

"He is in his own group," Berry continues of Johnson, who performed with Northstar and has also been identified by the stage name Christ Bearer.

Northstar was briefly signed to Wu-Tang Productions.

"RZA worked with them, as he does with countless other artists, years ago," the rep says. "[Northstar] was only loosely affiliated with Wu-Tang 10 years ago."

"[Johnson] was not a member of Wu-Tang Clan."

Most reports that Andre Johnson cut off his penis before jumping off a balcony in a bizarre suicide attempt listed him as a "Wu-Tang affiliated rapper."

Miraculously, he survived and is in stable condition, though doctors were unable to reattach his member after an incident that left the music world stunned.

Or in Wu-Tang's case, racing to its official blog.

Soon after the story broke, the group posted an article titled “EXCLUSIVE: NOT AFFILIATED TO WUTANG” followed by a picture of Johnson.

“Parental Advisory: Don’t Believe The HYPE. This Mother F----- Ain’t Got S--- to do with WUTANG ..~ Mr .TANG,” the post on Wu-Tang's blog went on to say.

The post has since been taken down, and in its place is TMZ's story about Johnson's penis-severing and balcony-jumping ... with no additional commentary.

And that's the Wu for you.
