R&B singer gouges his eye out?

CMU reports on a bizarre event that took place in London last week. It involves a missing eye and some rather conflicting stories.

A number of different explanations doing the rounds as to why American R&B
singer Houston gouged his own eye out while staying in a London hotel last week.

MTV reported this weekend that the singer’s bodyguard said the self-harming incident was an attempt by the “devout Christian” singer to cleanse himself from the “sins and devils” of the music business. The bodyguard reportedly added that Houston “showed no pain and had no remorse”.

Reno Rankin and Andrew Rowe of On Point Productions, who used to manage the singer, say he is a diagnosed schizophrenic and that they suspect the incident was a result of him not receiving sufficient treatment for the condition…

The reason this caught my eye is that I suffer from a dodgey cornea in my left and find someone taking their eye for no good reason rather odd. I suspect we will learn more about this later.

    you can understand what someone who plucked his own eye out is going through? That’s a lot of empathy.

    i saw this in this months Q, complete with grisly photo. Dear God, man, thats some sad, sad turn of events. Religious Mania in mentally ill folks often leads to this kinda harm. I’ve known folks myself who have done similarly unbelievable harm to themselves, and pretty much for the same reasons. The “cleansing” and so on.

  • Cara

    HAHAHAAHAH!

  • C-nile

    There’s no denying the brutha can sing and he’s got mad vocal skills! I honestly could see houston coming back with bigger and better material. I really dug his last album.

    He should still come out with a second album he could rock an eye patch it’ll set a trend.

    Its just a shame that the brutha was in a bad place in his life, coz he would of been gave usher a run for his money!!

    Houston dont stop the music bro keep it coming!! let that be your release or your sanctuary!

    Peace out and wish you well

  • Denise

    You need help seriously. I understand the need to get closer to the Lord, but causing bodily harm to youself is not the way. Please get some type of psychiatric help. This is serious!!!

  • http://St.Louis Destiny

    i think it is so sad that houston took his eye out. at first i didn’t understand why he did it, but i found out that it was because of his psychotic disorder and he didn’t get any treatment 4 it.

    and 4 all the whores and tricks who keep making a joke out of it, ya’ll not funny, ya’ll hella corny

    ya’ll should thank the lord that u didn’t have the disorder or that would have happened 2 u or worse.

    and 4 all the people who continue to make jokes about sexy azz houston, then may u rot in HELL

    i still luv u houston, keep making hits “I like that” was my jam.

    LUV YA ALWAYS!

  • Earl

    Yo that Nigga Houston should have been down with the Cats that put him in the game. And listen like he was supposed to do hard head makes a soft ass You made your bed so lay in it. You fucked up son. No one wants a one eye want to be gangbagger disrespectful clown ass nigga around. And that How you was Houston ….

  • angela

    Houston my dear,it is so sad that something like that happened to a good person.Am yo biggest fan, get well and back on yo feet bse God gave u a talent so use it.A piece o advice,next time u feel so down like that,just get on yo knees and pray to God and he will forgive and redeem u.God wants the best for us and not to harm our selves,He wants us to live a normal life and the only way to do that is to always pray and love Him, ourselves and others.WISH U THE BEST.GOD BLESS

  • Chanel

    I remembered him when he camed out, i even have his cd. what he did is just sad. He must really wanted to end his life, if he went out doing something crazy like that. So sad wished that he got his life together but I guess that he hasnt since he hasnt camed back out. So sad for you… Damn, I guess that the fans in London got to him in a negative way if he wanted to kill himself!!!
