Vybz Kartel Files Multimillion Dollar Lawsuit Against Police Head Owen Ellington

Vybz Kartel and Owen Ellington

Vybz Kartel is not going down without a fight. Attorneys representing the embattled dancehall star has filed a multimillion dollar lawsuit against outgoing Police Commissioner Owen Ellington.

Kartel’s lead attorney, Tom Tavares-Finson, told ZipFM, that the documents have ben signed by the incarcerated deejay but he had dated them which he shouldn’t have. So he will have to re-sign new docs which will be filed in the next couple of days.

It is unknown how much money Vybz Kartel is suing Owen Ellington for, but sources told Urban Islandz it is in the millions.

“The commissioner is part of a wider conspiracy to bring down Vybz Kartel and this lawsuit will send a clear message to this corrupt authority,” the source told us requesting anonymity.

In April of this year, Police Commissioner Owen Ellington revealed in an interview with TVJ’s All Angles that Vybz Kartel lead a gang that is responsible for well over a 100 murders.

“Vybz Kartel lead a gang that was responsible for well over a hundred murders,” Owen Ellington said. “We have been telling the country this for a very long time. And everytime we move against this gang we were criticized, we were contemned and we were accused of being malicious.”

Ellington recently announced his retirement from being the top cop in Jamaica after just four years on the job.

After Vybz Kartel conviction in February, Ellington defended the police force from widespread criticism of their handling of evidence presented in the high profile murder trial.

Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, is currently serving a life sentence in a maximum security section of the Horizon Remand Center. He will be eligible for parole in 35 years, while his three co-convicts Shawn Storm Campbell, Andre St John, and Kahira Jones will have to wait 25 years for parole.

    Sad to say I believe Vybz Kartel was involved in a lot of criminal activities but the police force in Jamaica is even worse so I dont see the point of this lawsuit. just wast of the justice system time.

      Stop calling him teacha lol he is proven to be dunce.

    • IshallaFari

      Your “Teacha” is a dunce and if he was so intelligent he would have employed ghetto youth in lawful industry instead of perpetuating violence. He is talented but so what? There are lots of talented youth in Jamaica the difference is they all won’t rob, steal, and kill to get rich. If you kill for nothing you will die for nothing. H.I.M. is the real World Boss, got that dunce head?

      • Bryan Isaac

        The ignorance in your and the other statement is to real .. Get money don’t worry about him why even comment bad mind is evil buisness

  • hennessey

    it’s not him it is his legal team trust me they seem greedy but yes I do not understand the point of this lawsuit, his back is certainly up against the wall though

    • IslandGirl

      He has no way out so his legal team is taking a long shot of suing for police corruption. This does two things; 1. Keeps his name in the media 2. Sets up a case for his appeal later. Kartel knows his fans will get older and less interested in a locked up 40 year old freaky ex-dance hall king, and the younger ones are already falling for the latest demon gimmicks (Alkaline/Tommy Lee) Even if this story is false it was probably still put out by his team to keep his geriatric name in the press.

  • NYC one

    Kartel lawsuit is BS

    • Ross Margarette

      Still hating

  • rozay

    SUE them striaght them take ghetto yute people for joke .

    • IshallaFari

      Mr Palmer never used his wealth and influence to fight police corruption when he was free. He never set up free legal services for falsely accused ghetto yutes. He does not represent police corruption he represents a dunce head artist with money and talent who still want to run the garrison and bring misery on his own people. He kill just as many people as most police. I despise him just as much. Go wash out your ears, pull up your pants, kiss your mother with a clean heart, and listen to Chronixx. Kartel music is poison. All these 12 year olds bending over and the men bleachin and dressing like a dyam gyal. KMT

  • ZiggyZagZag

    I think kartel will be found hanged (an apparent suicide) in his cell before this suit ever gets heard in a court of law.
    It sure as f#ck don’t take a rocket scientist to know he’s in the belly of the beast, and that beast has access to his scrawny ass any time, night or day!

    • Santana1Don

      Yuh nah lie, Ellington have power, whether or not him still inna di force.

      • ZiggyZagZag

        I wonder what is Kartel’s endgame?! What does he hope to accomplish by poking a gorilla the size of the Jamaican constabulary with a broken chopstick? Sounds to me like Kartel has gone suicidal.

        (SMFH)

  • shasyl

    Addi just do yuh rass time and stop the foolishness.Yuh rass guilty.

  • Bay

    Kartel, do your time an done!
    Nobody believes your innocent, not even you!
    Eediot!

  • Humble

    Everyone knows that the whole thing against Kartel was a conspiracy. The while trial was a joke. A straight up lie. The crooked Jamaice justice system really showed their ignorance with that one. He should be suing the whole freaking island.

    • Bay

      Video, voice notes, text, perjury, witness intimidation, jury tampering, witness who was there and skin bleaching!
      And you say it’s a conspiracy?
      How can you say it’s a lie when it’s mostly kartel who put himself, with his own words, in jail?
      Have you heard the word circumstantial?
      Yu an your free kartel eediots a Mek Jamaica look foolish, yo

      • Humble

        You’re dumb as hell. The cell phone was tampered with from the beginning and that is where they got the majority of the so called ‘circumstantial evidence’ from. So you think that is okay. Sure you do because it’s Kartel. Let it had been you or Bounty Killer and I’m sure you would be yelling its a set up. Bye Felicia

        Btw- Bye Felicia is a term we use in the US to fan off irritating disgusting ass gays.

      • Bay

        So it wasn’t his voice on the phone an was not him in the video?
        The phone was not tampered with, someone pressed it by accident and it called out!
        Experts from the phone company testify to that!
        You call me gay, but your a groupie!
        Man like u is the problem what’s bringing down black people!
        Your just a wasteman who thinks u a gangster!
        An who’s bigger gays than u Americans?
        Stay in soddom, all u lot good for is nastiness. We Jamaicans are not like you!

      • salena

        Roflmao @ your American comment. Damn Bay you don’t play;)

      • Juney

        I never heard that gay term either. And how did gay come up thou…

      • salena

        Humble(he/she/it) refereed to Bay using the gay term. (scroll up above)

      • Bay

        As they say, man who talk bout fish is a fisherman
        Man who talk bout batty…lol

      • ZiggyZagZag

        …men who talk about fish could be marine biologists, chefs, or even own an aquarium.

        Men who talk about batty could be policemen, doctors, or possibly dancehall artists.

      • salena

        I live in the U.S. and I’ve never heard of the term ‘bye Felicia’ . Which state did this term originate?Then again I probably would never associate with the kinds of people who would have this term rolling off of their tongue.This sounds like black American urban culture is there snap-of- a- finger and a hair toss to go along with the “bye Felicia” ?!I want to make sure I get it right. roflmao Referring to a straight man using a gay term is the best you could do?! Or should I say the worst?!

      • ZiggyZagZag

        Me thinks this ‘Murican has lost too many of his marbles.

        When someone says that they’re leaving and you could really give two sh!ts less that they are. Their name then becomes “felicia”, a random b!tch that nobody is sad to see go. They’re real name becomes irrelevant because nobody cares what it really is. Instead, they now are “felicia”.

        “hey guys i’m gonna go”
        “bye felicia”
        “who is felicia?”
        “exactly b!tch. buh bye.”

        -Urban Dictionary

      • salena

        Bye Felicia sounds like a cat call if you ask me finger-snap-hair-toss- Sashay! Shantay! Sounds like something a chick would say.

      • ZiggyZagZag

        Yeah, it does sound something like what RuPaul would say. Do you think this guy Humble wears his skirt long, or short when rocking his Payless sandals?

      • salena

        I see a corset that is pulled very tightly.I see breast protruding.I see what looks to be an upskirt, I’m unable to tell if any underwear is being worn.shoot he/she/it has on what appear to be gladiator style sandals. :) Let’s hope that he/she/it is prepared for combat . What do you see?

      • Juney

        I see a VERY short and tight skirt, so short I see BA–S…LMFAO

      • salena

        I see no balls :) * grabs a magnifying glass and leans in for a closer look*

      • Juney

        LMAO

      • ZiggyZagZag

        Look to your left, on the table you will see a fast-food coffee cup. Pop the lid open and take a peek inside. In it you will find his balls floating in vinegar. I had to remove them, his voice was a little bit too deep for my liking.

      • salena

      • ZiggyZagZag

        I see him/she/it suspended from the ceiling bound in the reverse prayer position with pink rope. A dripping wet bright orange ball-gag prevents he/she/it from crying out and begging for any sort of mercy. I see a 14″ leather flogger hanging on the wall…I move towards it, pick it up and sweep the air with a couple of hard practice swings before I lay it to flesh.

      • Juney

        Thanks, now I get it. I heard it before between friends, messing with each other. But I didn’t really get it, and didn’t ask.

      • smdh

        The saying comes from Friday the movie. People dug deep for that term. He Chris Tucker said it to the annoying crackhead. I hated that movie and didnt know either and I’m from NYC.

      • salena

        Damn you from the city too? roflmao I don’t see that term being used in anywhere in the city. It seems like a derogatory and homophobic term I hope Humble won’t complain when he is refer to as a N.roflmao

      • smdh

        I see it use more on blogs than anything!

      • salena

        I think it depends on ethnic makeup of your neighborhood. I hope I don’t sound racist roflmao any who I’m an Afro Caribbean and I would hear that word on the train “what’s up my N” etc besides, nyc is very gay friendly so his homophobic “bye Felecia” is less likely to be used. I think he probably lives in a bubble. roflmao

      • smdh

        That is a broad generalization. I gather it depends if you feel the need to assimilate to the trends within your environment. NYC as a whole is not as g@y friendly as people assume. I am African American and I don’t partake in throwing around epithets I see everyone and their mother using such epithets to me its like someone its a trend that needs to end. I live around Spanish people and I don’t feel the need to assimilate lmao half of them assume they know me anyway. I come and go some people arent pressed for friends.

      • salena

        I think most of NYC is very gay friendly. How can someone not be it’s in your face 24/7.Let’s agree to disagree. I practically lived everywhere in the city. I lived in Chelsea, Saint Marks Pl, Inwood( the heights), Harlem,Astoria, Flatbush etc. I’m very open minded and I don’t give two shyts who’s doing what with whom, I don’t give two syhts about interracial relationships etc and when I hear people throwing around the N word and in the same breath throwing around a gay slur, and then complaining when the N word is used on them I go tsk tsk tsk.

      • smdh

        I was born and raised in NYC. Your view and age can also shape your view. Born and raised in SI, lived in LI, ENY Brooklyn, Harlem, Gun Hill Road Bronx and now East Tremont. I am from an era where g@y relations werent on display and those people in my family are disgusted with the current in your face tactic. I don’t care what their likes or dislikes are until my male child is uncomfortable in a public place because of excessive PDA. Shocking that you stated your not hung up on race, I am hung on my race for I love being black!

      • salena

        Did they really try to censor my words I will try again because there was no profanity in my post, not to mention I’m very chilled. I was born and raised in my country (island) so my reality was a lot different from your reality. Here’s the thing in the islands (Caribbean) we aren’t segregated like you guys in America. We have people from different ethnic background so we aren’t concerned about the white man this or that. You assume that I’m a self hating black because I don’t share your views etc. I’m not concerned about black issues (issues affecting only blacks) or women issues (issues affecting only women) I’m more concerned about human issues(issues affecting human beings) Let’s agree to disagree. :)

        When I see people I see well, human beings, personality etc I don’t see race. Am I making sense? I’m not inclined to help a black person more so than any other person. Am I making sense?

      • smdh

        I am going to need you to re-read my post I stated my view about my love for being black. Did not mention anything about your pride or lack there off. Please don’t reach so hard. Have a good day. YOu would be surprised what people who are not from your island know about them I love all people but my people are always in my heart Africa, WI, Brazil, black people, I love my black people!! Sorry you do not share in the same sentiment but it means nothing to my day to day!

      • salena

        Know about Island people? Would their views on island people be based on something they experience first hand while living among then in the islands or are they going off of what they heard? Who think they’re more refined more so than African Americans. When I make comments about A.A. I am going off of real world experience living among them. Most of all my A.A. friends are very hypersensitive about race and I’m not and it also means nothing to my day to day! I love people regardless of their ethnic background. have a great day!

      • smdh

        You don’t know us all you are making assumptions based off the people you come in contact with. We are not one in the same we are individuals. I know Island people who were born and raised in their respective island and tell are willing to discuss their personal issues. I have also come in contact with African who are willing to do the same. I am on a personal quest to know of my culture prior to the ensl@vement and introduction of wh!te supremacy! You do the same!

      • hennessey

        Ok with all that being said put everything and ask yourself would you want to be friends with Vybz Kartel? Forget about the accusations of murders and missing bodies etc. I do agree he was given an unfair trial yes, but he is not a saint. He has terrorized a lot of people because of fame and fortune and ignorance.

        But why would anyone want to be friends with someone who has gang tears on their face or who is in a gang and intimidate people. Not to mention sleep with so many women and get them pregnant. A lot of his so called friends only liked him for his money and look where it got them. Some are dead and some are behind bars.

  • Bay

    Agreed!

  • hennessey

    God bless you son, I know I have heard of people who know him having not said any nice things about him. His character that he displays is very unbalanced and getting so many women pregnant also. I will never forget one interview he did when there were some people upset with him. He claims they were just mad because he slept with their mother, their grandmother, their sister, their aunt and niece and the whole chabang.

    I mean who says stuff like that, obvi he has no class or respect. But God bless you Dan for identifying his unbalance character.
