Immature has returned to the news cycle since the group announced a national #TBTour. The R&B ensemble recently stopped by Nick Cannon’s Power 106 FM radio morning show to discuss what they’ve been up to since releasing their last album in the mid-2010s, touring and a little known story that involves Jerome “Romeo” Jones’ eye patch.
During a dispute between famed vocalist Brandy (who was a backup singer for the group at the time) and former Immature member Don “Half Pint” Santos, Brandy “had a book in her hand and just tossed it back. Not thinking anyone was that close and cut my retina, detached it. The lens to my eye had fell out,” Romeo recalls. He was then rushed to the hospital and was encouraged to wear a patch to protect his injured eye.
This isn’t the first time Romeo has revealed this news. On his solo song “Look Down On Me” from his album Food For Thought, he recalled the moment, singing, “I remember when Brandy Norwood hit me in my eye/ I had an attach regna my lens came out I had to have 3 eye surgeries/ And she thought we’ll never be cool again/ But I put that on my life/ I love her to death/ If she hear me talking, I know she can hear the honesty in my voice and my sincerity.”
The tour, which features Ray J, J. Holiday and B5 will take place on Nov. 15 in St. Louis, Missouri’s Chaifetz Arena. In June, Houston teased an Immature reunion that excited fans. The group produced hits like “First Time,” and “Stay The Night.”
