Imprisoned Dancehall entertainer Vybz Kartel is alive and in good health despite rumors claiming he was stabbed and hospitalized on New Year’s Eve.
The new claim is that the artiste was badly punctured during an altercation at the Horizon Remand Centre on December 31st 2014.
Hype Life Magazine understands that there was no truth to the reports.
An article on a poplar gossip website, One Love Ja, surfaced that the “Cya Test” deejay was engaged in a fight with another inmate when he was stabbed last Wednesday night.
The website claims that “Vybz Kartel was in a altercation with one of his cell mates in the Horizon Prison. The cell mate reportedly drew a sharp object that has been discovered in the photo [above] then repeatedly stabbed Addijah Palmer Aka Vybz kartel twice.”
“We could not confirm where on his body he received the stab wounds,” the article states.
“…a warder of the Horizon Prison rushed to the situation as the cell mate has been taken under heavy and high security protection.”
A source close to the former Portmore Empire head told Hype Life Magazine that the rumors are false.
“That New Year’s rumor circulating about Vybz Kartel claiming to be stabbed at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre and hospitalized at KPH is untrue.
“The rumor is definitely false, Addi is in great health,” the source added.
“No such incident has been reported. No records of a fight in which he was involved, has been reported,” an officer at the Remand Centre confirmed Monday.
Vybz Kartel is now serving life imprisonment for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ William at his home in Havendale, a suburb north of Kingston, on 16 August 2011.
He was sentenced on April 3rd, 2014 and will not be eligible for parole for 35 years.
