As Vybz Kartel adjust to prison life there are fresh rumors claiming that he is suicidal.
Vybz Kartel started his life sentence at the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre last week Thursday immediately after a judge handed down the shocking sentencing.
A rep for the former Portmore Empire boss told Dancehall HipHop that the self-proclaim Worl’Boss is stronger than ever.
“Addi [Vybz Kartel] is holding up strong in the face of this injustice,” the rep told us. “All this talk of suicide are false rumors people aligned to the system are spreading in the media. All clean heart people know that Di Teacha innocent and the fans them support stronger than ever. We are appealing this conviction and we are confident Teacha will walk free.”
The rep also told us that Vybz Kartel’s baby mother Tanesha “Shorty” Johnson visited him in prison earlier this week.
Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, along with Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Andre St John, and Kahira Jones were all convicted of the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
The Crown says the convicted men beat Lizard to death on August 16, 2014 at Kartel’s house in Havendale over two missing guns.
All four men were handed down with life sentences. Vybz Kartel will be eligible for parole in 35 years, Shawn Storm and Andre St John in 25 years, while Kahira Jones will have to wait 30 years before parole.
Vybz Kartel will be 73 years old when he is eligible for parole.
