Vybz Kartel Rushed To The Hospital For Unknown Illness
Dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel was reportedly rushed to the hospital on Tuesday afternoon (July 21) for an unknown illness.
The “Worl’ Boss” deejay was sighted at the University Hospital of the West Indies, undertaking a medical examination.
The Correctional Department while being tight-lipped about information surrounding the matter, confirms to media reports that Vybz Kartel visited the doctor after he was complaining about feeling pain in his stomach, but refused to say anything else.
Kartel who entered the hospital under heavy police guard was there for a blood test and a general checkup.
A photograph which shows the Jamaican deejay in a pink shirt, sporting a low afro and visibly lightened skin in handcuff has been making the rounds on social media.
“It’s nothing serious so the fans don’t need to worry too much. He was just complaining about feeling pain in his stomach, so he was taken to get checked out as a precaution,” a representative for the Kartel told Hype Life Magazine.
Vybz Kartel, who is currently serving a life sentence in maximum security prison, was snapped by a hospital staff in handcuff, wearing a pink t-shit, denim pants, and sunglasses.
Vybz Kartel is currently serving a life sentence at hard labour following his murder conviction in April 2014.
