Raz-B, formerly of B2K, was hospitalized last night after getting hit in the face with a glass bottle.

According to TMZ:

The 28-year-old R&B star was performing at a nightclub in Zhejiang (birthplace of Qian Xuesen — the “Father of Chinese Rocketry” … yay science!).

Raz’s rep tells TMZ … during the performance, he noticed a fistfight in the crowd and went to go break it up — when someone swung a bottle right into his moneymaker, causing several cuts … including a deep gash on his lip.

We’re told the Chinese police immediately stepped in … grabbing the attacker AND Raz — and dragging them both to jail.

Cops quickly released Raz after determining he did nothing wrong. Raz’s rep says cops made the bottle thrower fork over roughly $5,000 to pay for Raz’s medical expenses.

After the drama at the police station, Raz was finally taken to a hospital, where he underwent a 1-hour surgical procedure to repair the “hole” in his lip. The wound also required 4 stitches.

Raz issued a statement to TMZ saying, “F**k this s**t hurts. I have a f**king hole in my lip. Thank god I made it to the hospital.”

Raz — who’s been in living in China for the past 3 years — says he doesn’t plan on pursuing legal action. He also says he plans to move back to the U.S. before the end of the year to focus on a “big comeback.”

Ouch!

UPDATE: Raz-B is now in a coma.

We spoke to Raz’s publicist, Toy Jones, who tells us, “He is in a coma and needs as many prayers as possible.”

As we previously reported, the 28-year-old was performing at a club in China on Thursday and was smashed in the face with a glass bottle while trying to break up a fight that erupted in the crowd.

Raz received medical attention hours after the incident –and underwent minor surgery to repair a gash in his lip.

But the next day, sources close to Raz tell us he didn’t wake up … and Raz’s backup dancer rushed him to a nearby hospital for treatment.

We’re told doctors tested for brain activity and determined the situation was dire. Sources say Raz is breathing from a ventilator … and has been slipping in and out of consciousness.
