Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton recently got word that classic R&B duo K-Ci and JoJo (of Jodeci fame) gave a seemingly inebriated concert in Sydney, Australia which resulted in JoJo passing out mid-song on stage. His blog entry reveals:
“Perezcious reader Jordan was there and here’s his eyewitness account:
So last night some friends and I went to see a Jodeci
“reunion tour” at the Enmore Theater in Sydney. Mate, the whole thing
was a disaster. First, one of the guys (Devante I think) didn’t even
show up, so it became a K-ci and JoJo concert. JoJo came on stage and
right away you could tell he was messed right up- he kept forgetting
the words to songs and just was a general weirdo. But then, after about
40 minutes into the “show” he decided to sit right down on the floor.
His brother, the other crackhead K-Ci was trying his best to carry the
show on his own. By far, the best part of the evening was when JoJo walked off stage for about 5 minutes, then came back out to sing “All My Life”- and PASSED OUT mid song. His brother told the audience that they were tired after their 24-hour flight and that JoJo had gotten dizzy.”As the video shows (starting at about 1:40 seconds in) after JoJo
walked off stage, he stumbles back on a few minutes later, only to pass
out on the middle of the stage. As concerned audience members shout “Someone help him!” it takes almost a full minute before JoJo wobbled to his feet and was escorted off-stage.
K-Ci and JoJo are most well known for their contributions as members of the legendary R&B group Jodeci,
helping croon on tracks like “Feenin’,” and “Forever My Lady.”
Multiple group members have been rumored to be dealing with long-time
addictions to various drugs.
Neither K-Ci nor JoJo have commented on the Sydney incident.
