(AllHipHop News) A rapper affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan has lost a lawsuit over allegations that he cut off his own penis.
The unusual saga started when Marques Johnson, AKA Andre Roxx, hit the headlines in April of 2014 after it was reported that he was found on a North Hollywood sidewalk, after an apparent suicide attempt.
Details of the effort went global because the rapper cut off his own penis before he plunged off the balcony.
The problem is, the rapper in question was Andre “Christ Bearer” Johnson, and not Marques Andre “Roxx” Johnson, who was in jail at the time the episode.
Both rappers, who are associated with Wu-Tang Clan’s Killa Bees outfit, have similar names.
Even though TMZ.com’s story was updated, the news circulated around the world.
Andre Roxx said he was in prison at the time the story was published and was ordered into protective custody over the news stories.
Earlier this week, a judge ruled that Andre Roxx waited too long to sue the media outlets who mixed him up with the notorious suicide try.
A judge tossed libel, defamation, and invasion of privacy allegations.
The rapper actually said he was proud of the weird event.
“[I’m] in the annals of history, I don’t think you got anybody who ever did it,” the rapper said shortly after he tried to kill himself.
