Concerns about Vybz Kartel’s health has been swirling for months.
The incarcerated Dancehall superstar sent fans into a frenzy back in April when new photos surfaced from his family visit day behind bars.
Dancehall/Gaza nation fans believed the “Any Weather” deejay was in need of immediately medical attention after the photos went viral. However Kartel’s attorney, Valerie Neita-Robertson, says he is receiving adequate medical attention.
“They take him out of the prison from time to time to receive medical treatment, and he is under ongoing medical care,” she said.
Earlier this year Vybz Kartel was rushed to hospital and admitted in serious but stable condition for thyroid issues.
“He has a thyroid issue. He had a crisis,” Tom Tavares-Finson, who also represents the deejay said. “He was admitted to the UHWI. The crisis has been brought under control. He’s not in danger at this time.”
It was Vybz Kartel’s third visit to hospital since his incarceration. Back in 2017, the deejay was rushed to the University Hospital under heavy police guard after complaining of excruciating pains in his side. In July 2015, he visited the doctors at the same facility due to a skin inflammation.
