|Christ Bearer - cuts off his penis|
The American Rapper, known as Christ Bearer and said to be attached to the Wu-Tang Clan is reported to have cut off his own penis and later jumped from the second floor balcony of a building. He is now in hospital in Los Angeles, the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Many US media report that the police were called to an apartment in North Hollywood on Wednesday at around 01:00 local time.
Christ Bearer, a 40-year old rapper with band Northstar, is said to have attempted suicide. His real name is Johnson Andre. He was discovered by the rap collective and performs as a duo with artist Meko under the name Northstar. The rappers have "a much coveted spot in the Wu family", says the Wu-Tang website.
It is the opinion of many that it would be difficult to reattach his penis.
