Grammy Award-winning reggae artist Sean Paul is being sued in New York for $80 million.
He is being sued by a woman who says she is his 'ex'. Susanne Persson claims that Sean Paul had her illegally deported from Jamaica and drove her to attempt suicide.
Persson, who is from Sweden, said Sean Paul "bribed Jamaican police" to oust her from the country in June 2010, the suit claims.
The documents, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, include an illustrated, self-written, 120-page tell-all that promises on its cover to allegedly expose: "The Truth About Sean Paul's Cocainene Dealings, Lies, Murders and Erection Problems."
The work, titled "Irie Jamboree: My life in Jamaica as a jet set slave with the enormous secret of a love affair with Jamaica's perhaps most well known Dancehall Artist," has a childishly hand-drawn cover depicting Persson in a blue sari and Paul with his signature Mohawk.
"Ever since [Paul] started using yayo regularly, he has had severe erection problems. If it lasts one minute, it is a good day," Persson alleges in the 11-chapter work, which she submitted as a supporting document to her self-filed lawsuit.
Persson included her American Airlines itinerary from Kingston, Jamaica, to Stockholm, Sweden, on June 24, in the court filing. Headline Entertainment, Paul's promotion company, made the reservation, according to the receipt. Immigration authorities forced her to board the plane, the lawsuit, which was filed in New York claims.
Sean Paul's lawyer denied the deportation allegations.
"He would not have the power to do that," said attorney Tom Taveres-Finson.
The day before Persson was allegedly booted from the country, she claims she attempted suicide. "I had tried to kill myself, losing more than one liter of blood from a cut on my wrist," she wrote in the court filing. "I had shown the pictures of the cuts to Sean over the Internet. I feel he should see what he had caused."
Persson said the singer, who turns 40 next week, ruined her life.
He subjected her to "starvation, homelessness, repeated suicide attempts, loss of ability to generate income," the complaint alleges.
