Vybz Kartel rushed to hospital
Jailed entertainer Vybz Kartel was rushed to hospital yesterday under heavy police guard after complaining of chest pains.
“He had been complaining of feeling ill for some time,” said Kartel’s attorney Tom Tavares-Finson. “The pain in his chest became more serious and they had to take him to the hospital.”
Kartel is now awaiting the results of tests conducted on him yesterday.
He is also due in court today for a bail application in relation to the murder of a man, Clive Williams, who was allegedly beaten to death at his home.
Kartel’s Gaza Empire labelmate Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell and other men are charged along with Kartel regarding Williams’ death.
Vybz’s presence at the hospital in Kingston where he was being treated at drew a massive crowd of fans who flocked to the downtown-based facility to get a glimpse of him.
“Have mercy, mi get to touch him,” cried out one woman, who was moved by the sight of Kartel. “Me naw bathe again. Somebody hold me, hold me!”
