Tommy Lee Sparta says he will be swimming in cash after winning a US$3 million lawsuit against the Dominican government.
The dancehall deejay filed the lawsuit back in 2014 following an incident where he was barred from entering the country upon arrival on a private jet for a concert. The Mobay deejay complained that he was treated inhumane and had to sleep overnight on a cold concrete floor inside a cell. He was traveling with his entourage which includes then manager Heavy D. After returning home to Jamaica, Tommy Lee filed a $3 million lawsuit against the Dominican government for violating his civil rights based on the CARICOM’s Treaty of Chaguaramas.
During a recent interview with radio host Mutabaruka, Tommy Lee Sparta revealed that he will be getting a lot of cash after the pending settlement concluded. “Me a get a lot cash, man, everybody who pressure me will have to pay me,” the artist said.
Tommy Lee’s attorney Bert Samuels confirmed that Dominican authorities made the deejay an offer but they are currently in negotiation to reach a final settlement. Lee already kicked off the year with a slew of new singles including a few diss tracks aimed at Alkaline.
