Did Vybz Kartel really go to the doc for treatment?

vybz-kartel-doctor-visit-photo.jpgA photo surfaced this week of jailed deejay Vybz Kartel sitting in what appears to be the waiting room of a medical office. Speculation spread like wild fire that the entertainer had fallen sick again and had been complaining of chest pains.

However, checks by some news outlets with the Correctional Services to ascertain information about the deejay's health status proved futile.

"We are not privileged to give out that type of information," a member of the public relations department of Correctional Services, said.

In June 2013, Kartel was rushed to the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH) after complaining of chest pains. His presence at KPH drew a massive crowd of fans who flocked the medical facility to view the 'World Boss'.

Medical personnel routinely visit prisons to check up on inmates. In more serious cases, prisoners are taken to external health facilities under police guard.

Vybz Kartel is serving a life sentence for the murder of Clive "Lizard" Williams.

The latest picture depicts a pensive-looking Kartel, seated with hands clasped and shackled by handcuffs - seemingly penitent in prayer. He is decked out in a red, round-neck t-shirt and jeans.

His physical appearance has not changed since his 2014 conviction of murder, but Portmore Empire fans are delighted for the glimpse of the artiste beyond prison.
