Sean Paul sued for $US80 million by alleged ex-lover
It’s been a bizarre start to 2013 for internationally revered Dancehall superstar, Sean Paul, who’s facing a lawsuit from an ex-lover who has made a myriad of surprising claims.
Susanne Persson, who claims to be Sean Paul’s ex-girlfriend, has sued the Got 2 Luv U singer for a whopping US80 million, insisting that the entertainer had her deported from Jamaica in June 2010 after bribing local law enforcement officials. Persson, a Swedish makeup artist and hairstylist, filed the lawsuit in New York’s Manhattan Supreme Court, which includes a self-written book, Irie Jamboree that promises to expose ‘The Truth about Sean Paul’s Cocaine Dealings, Lies, Murders and Erection Problems.’
Irie Jamboree depicts a hand-drawn caricature of Persson and Sean Paul in his trademark mohawk. In the book, Persson claims Sean Paul’s alleged cocaine issues severely affected their love life.
“Ever since Paul started using cocaine regularly, he has had severe erection problems. If it lasts one minute, it is a good day,” an excerpt of the book reads.
Persson included her American Airlines itinerary, documenting her June 2010 flight from Kingston to her native Stockholm. A receipt she presented shows that Headline Entertainment, Sean Paul’s promotion company, made the arrangements for said flight.
Furthermore, Persson intimated that Sean Paul, who is married to RETV personality, Jodi 'Jinx' Stewart, subjected her starvation, homelessness and repeated suicide attempts, one of which occurred a day prior to her deportation.
“I had tried to kill myself, losing more than one liter of blood from a cut on my wrist,” her court filing read. “I had shown the pictures of the cuts to Sean over the Internet. I feel he should see what he had caused.”
Sean Paul has yet to respond to these allegations. However, the singer’s lawyer, Tom Tavares-Finson rubbished these claims, stating Sean Paul wouldn’t have the authority to have someone deported.
Persson also claims Sean Paul took hundreds of naked pictures of her “obtained under the pretext of a future marriage.”
