A rapper who was in a group that was founded by the Wu-Tang Clan tried to cut off his own penis at his home in Studio City, Calif., according to a report by TMZ.
The Los Angeles Police said they thought the incident was a suicide attempt by Christ Bearer--who is also known as Andre Johnson--that occurred at about 1 a.m. on Wednesday (April 16).
Witnesses told TMZ that he was "screaming incoherently" after he cut off his penis and jumped off a second story balcony in the 4500 block of Colfax Avenue, from an apartment that Bearer shares with members of the rap group Northstar. He was found bleeding on the sidewalk.
No drugs were reportedly involved in the incident. A North Hollywood division Los Angeles Police spokesman said there are no further details about the incident.
Bearer was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he is being treated.
