B2K is known for behind the scenes drama. Now Omarion is vowing to share “the truth” about the chart-topping R&B group in a new docuseries.
The former B2K frontman recently posted a trailer for the five-part series titled OMEGA: The Gift & The Curse on Instagram.
“A lie spreads faster than the truth. Everybody got something to say but now, it’s my turn,” Omarion says in trailer. “Let me take you back to 2019, the Millennium Tour. You think you know, but you have no idea.”

In addition to Omarion, B2K (short for Boys of the New Millennium) was made up of Raz-B, J-Boog and Lil’ Fizz. The group released their self-titled debut album in 2002. They had a string of hits before disbanding, including Uh Huh, Gots Ta Be, and Bump, Bump, Bump (Featuring Diddy).
According to the description of Omarion’s docuseries on YouTube, the group’s reunion tour was in a “constant state of chaos” and there was “betrayal.”
“We will witness the BROTHERHOOD and BETRAYAL. Many questions will be answered from his turbulent relationship with the mother of his children to his thoughts about her relationship with his bandmate,” the description says. “We will also witness the covert sabotage orchestrated for one bandmate towards another as well as the toxic family influences that further contributed to the downfall of B2K.”
OMEGA: The Gift & The Curse premieres July 21. To view the series (which will surely be messy), Omarion is directing fans to the website omarionworldwide.com.
As previously reported, Raz B dropped out of the 2019 Millennium Tour saying he didn’t “feel safe” because of what was happening behind the scenes. He later rejoined the tour and B2K posted a message on social media saying the matter was handled privately and “we’re good.”
There was also friction when Fizz began dating Omarion’s ex-girlfriend Apryl Jones. Fizz later publicly apologized to Omarion on stage saying: “I did some f—ed up s— to my brother and I’m not proud of it, man.”
More recently, Omarion referred to the group as his “3 background dancers” (along with several other insults) after they made fun of him for getting served by Mario during their Verzuz battle on June 23.
J-Boog responded to Omarion with a 10-page statement calling him “selfish” and said the group stood by his side even when their management team wanted to bring in another lead singer.
“This thing we call B2K was never the Omarion show,” he shared. “It was more like a circus and each guy brought a special attraction and collectively it was fun to watch. Watching you only let’s me know that you were not really paying attention to what was making you Omarion because without us around it’s clear you can’t tap back into him. You look lost, almost like you looking for us to feed off. You are a fame hog and that got the best of you.”
There will likely be more reactions after OMEGA: The Gift & The Curse debuts.
