In a bizarre lawsuit, a suicidal woman claims superstar dancehall artist Sean Paul forced her out of Jamaica to end their relationship.
Plaintiff Susanne Persson wants $80 million in damages from Sean Paul, his road manager, Steve Wilson, and his label, Atlantic Records, according to the lawsuit filed last week in Manhattan.
In the wacky 126-page filing, Persson said she was a “jet set slave” for Sean Paul, and threatened to tell the truth about his “lies, murders and erection problems.”
The singer “emotionally tortured” her during a love affair that began in early 2010, Persson claimed.
In June, Sean Paul bribed Jamaica police to throw her out of the country in the hope she would kill herself, the lawsuit claims. Persson says she suffered emotional damage and tried several times to kill herself.
The court documents also include a receipt for her flight on June 24, 2010, from Jamaica to Stockholm. The documents show the $1,200 flight was in her name and paid for by Headline Entertainment, Sean Paul’s Kingston-based management company.
Persson, a Swedish citizen, said she was penniless when Jamaican police put her on a plane without consulting her consulate.
“[Sean Paul] fears me the way I fear spiders,” Persson rambled in her papers, which are full of oddball religious musings and racial comments about Jamaican men.
Sean Paul’s spokesman said the singer had no comment on the pending litigation.
