As previously reported by TMZ, rapper Chris Bearer used a steak knife to cut off his penis and then hurled himself off the balcony of his apartment.  Now he is speaking out and explains why.  The rapper whose real name is Andre Johnson, was found on the ground in front of his apartment complex at 1 a.m. on April 16.  Police called paramedics out, who found the rapper had completely dismembered himself with a steak knife

Early reports indicated that he was high on PCP, now it’s being revealed there was more to his attempt at suicide.  At the time, Johnson says it was a combination of missing his two daughters, marijuana and a book about monks and vasectomies that moved him to disfigure himself.

In a recent interview with TMZ, the rapper revealed he was getting high and was lonely and suicidal due to a restraining order put in place to keep him away from his daughters.  On a brighter note, he has been reunited with his member thanks to some very talented plastic surgeons.

In a quick update on Chris Brown, the R&B singer has been ordered to stay in jail for an additional 131 days Friday (May 9).  As you know, Breezy has been locked up for close to two months now and last week while in court, he admitted the D.C. fight violated his probation.  That’s all Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin needed to hear and he sentenced the singer to a year behind bars with 234 days of credit for time served in custody and rehab.

Though Chris Brown acknowledged probation violation, he’s not in any way making a confession of guilt that he assaulted anyone in D.C. case.  None the less Breezy faces misdemeanor assault for the incident involving his bodyguard Chris Hollosy, and a 20-year-old man and the trial on the matter should begin as early as next month.
