Christ Bearer, a member of the rap group Northstar, cut his penis off and jumped off a balcony in a suicide attempt this morning, according to reports.
The rapper affiliated with Wu-Tang Clan, whose real name is Andre Johnson, was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital early Wednesday, TMZ reports.
He allegedly cut off his penis and jumped off a second story balcony in what police believe was an attempt to take his own life for unknown reasons.
Officials were called to an apartment building in North Hollywood, Calif., at around 1:00 a.m. today and found Andre Johnson on the sidewalk critically injured.
Johnson was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center; it is not known if doctors are able to or are attempting to reattach his penis.
Also known by his stage name Christ Bearer, Johnson was in a group founded by members of the legendary hip hop collective Wu-Tang Clan.
Members of Northstar who also live in the same apartment building say they were there early this morning when he suddenly lept off the balcony.
They say they weren't on "any hard drugs that would cause him to do such a thing" and that the disturbing incident happened in a matter of seconds.
By the time they raced downstairs, Christ Bearer was incoherent and running around screaming, the other rappers later told the celebrity news site.
