    Despite rapper Andre Johnson being previously affiliated with the band, Wu-Tang Clan has broken their silence and denied any links to him on their website.

    An article that read "Parental Advisory: Don't Believe the HYPE. This Mother F--ker Ain't Got S--t to do with The WUTANG Brand" was posted on the group's social media pages but later deleted.

    An image showing a man (whose identity has now been called into question) with the words, "Not affiliated with the Wu-Tang Brand" was included in the same post. 

    While a rep for the Wu-Tang Clan has so far not returned our request for comment, a statement from an unnamed spokesperson is making the rounds in British media.

    Outlets are sourcing a supposed representative's comment to The Mirror, which said, "He is not of any affiliation to Wu-Tang Clan or any of its subsidiaries. No on here has ever seen or heard of this fool until now."

    Johnson, who was working with the group Northstar, cut off his penis early Wednesday morning and jumped off the second story of a North Hollywood building, police confirmed to various media outlets.

    The 40-year-old was found lying on the sidewalk with critical injuries and was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

    He is still currently seeking treatment at the hospital.

    Hours before his alleged suicide attempt, a music video for a song titled "Oooh!" went up on YouTube featuring Johnson aka Christ Bearer and Rugged Monk.
