Flesh-N-Bone Says He Never Hit His Mama With A Gun

Posted: Saturday – April 17, 2010

Rapper Flesh-N-Bone, nee Stanley Howse, says he didn’t hit his mother with a gun more than a decade ago, an alleged assault for which he was arrested just last month during a concert in Cleveland. The 36-year-old rapper said Wednesday night before performing in Atlanta that he did not remember the 1998 incident.

“It didn’t happen,” Howse said, while fellow members of the group Thugs-N-HarmonyKrayzie Bone, Layzie Bone and Wish Bone — sat beside him.

“I would never do anything like that to my mother,” he says. “Anyone that thinks I would do something like need to check themselves.”

Howse is accused of leaving a 1-inch gash on his mother’s head. An Atlanta sheriff’s spokesman said the rapper’s mother and two witnesses described the incident before police moved in to arrest him backstage in March.

Howse said he and his mother have a solid relationship and she is still very upset about his arrest. But the rapper does have a rap sheet: He was released from a California jail in 2008 after being sentenced for assault with a rifle and being an ex-convict with a gun.

Thugs-N-Harmony won a Grammy in 1997 for best rap performance for the song “Crossroads.”

Sounds like Mr. Bone’s career may also be at a crossroads.

Things are already off to a rough start for the Bone Thugs and Harmony reunion as according to published reports Flesh-N-Bone was arrested Sunday (March 28) at a concert in the group’s hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.

Flesh-N-Bone, whose real name is Stanley Howse, was arrested on 12-year-old charges that he roughed up his mother with a gun.

Witnesses say police shut the concert down just before midnight, after police state they were spotted by Howse who had reportedly tried to invite audience members on stage to slip out of police site.

Sheriff’s spokesman John O’Brien says Howse was wanted on domestic violence and felonious assault charges.

The rapper is accused of striking his mother with a gun in 1998, leaving a 1-inch gash on her head.

Court records do not list an attorney for Howse and as of press time he had not yet been released from jail.

The group is scheduled to play at The Vogue nightclub in Indianapolis Monday evening at 8 p.m.

As previously reported, Flesh was released last June after serving nearly 10 years for threatening acts that included the use of explosives and an AK-47.

Bone Thugs next album, Uni5: The World’s Enemy, which will feature all five original members, is scheduled to be released on April 27th.
