NEW YORK, United States, Friday January, 4, 2013 - The Sweden-born ex-girlfriend of Jamaican dancehall superstar Sean Paul has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against him claiming he forced her out of Jamaica to terminate their relationship.
According to the 126-page lawsuit filed in Manhattan civil court, Susanne Persson, says she wants US$80 million in damages from Sean Paul, his road manager, Steve Wilson, and his label, Atlantic Records.
Persson claims she was a “jet set slave” for Sean Paul, threatening to tell the truth about his alleged “lies” and other matters.
She is claiming that the international singer “emotionally tortured” her during a love affair that began in early 2010.
Persson alleges in the lawsuit that Sean Paul bribed Jamaica police in June to throw her out of the Caribbean island in the hope she would kill herself.
As a result, she claims that she suffered emotional damage and tried several times to kill herself.
Persson also claims she was penniless when Jamaican police put her on a plane without consulting the Swedish consulate.
“(Sean Paul) fears me the way I fear spiders,” she says in her lawsuit, which includes a receipt for her flight on June 24, 2010, from Jamaica to Stockholm.
The documents show the US$1,200 flight was in her name and paid for by Headline Entertainment, Sean Paul’s Kingston-based management company.
Sean Paul’s spokesman told reporters here that the dancehall star has no comment on the pending litigation.
