Rumor Alert! Vybz Kartel Did Not Escape From Prison

Imprisoned Dancehall star Vybz Kartel found himself in international news headlines early this morning. Various reports from Jamaica hit the Web on a daring prison break by Kartel and a crew of prisoners.

A number of outlets ran stories on the singer leading an escape that supposedly left one prison official dead and 12 others wounded. However, the JamaicaObserver has confirmed the rumors to be completely false.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Les Green told the paper  early this morning that he had no knowledge of the reported jail break.

"I know nothing about that. If that had taken place I would would certainly have known," Green said.

Police at Denham Town Police station and nearby news network Constabulary Communication also said they are unaware of any incident

"It may be an attempt by his cronies to keep him in the news but they don't need to spread rumors to do that because he will be in the news for quite some time," one cop told the Observer.

Kartel remains in custody on multiple murder and drug charges.

The track was in reference to City Girl's girls' anthem, "Act Up." On the record, Hazel-E takes shots at the Miami duo for having Lil Yachty write most of the lyrics. "I’m a real boss, I truly signed checks/You just got signed, you truly signed into debt/QC quit capping, quit comparing, you got bodied/Point blank bitch, period...Lil Boat wrote your shit, are you serious?" Hazel raps, frequently referring to the duo as "little girls."

After catching wind of Hazel-E's track, Yung Miami delivered a heated response on her personal Instagram account. "Just know when I see you sir I’m beating your a** on sight for speaking on my mom and my son you lame a** h*e!"

'The Chi's' Tiffany Boone Shamed Over Jason Mitchell Harassment Allegations

The Chi actress, Tiffany Boone is being publicly shamed on social media after she accused her co-star, Jason Mitchell of sexual harassment.

The offensive comments rang out in the comments section of her photos on Instagram. While we rather not highlight negative remarks shaming a victim of sexual misconduct, it's safe to say that the comments are pretty tasteless.

Despite the negative feedback, Boone has also been swarmed by fans who are defending her. "The simple fact some people are attacking her, is f**king ludicrous to me, one Instagram user wrote. "Some of y’all are asking , why did she get Jason Mitchell fired? Really? He got his own a** fired! If he would’ve conducted himself like he was supposed to, his a** would still be on the show!

As previously reported, Boone, who plays Jerrika on the Lena Waithe-produced drama, accused Mitchell of making sexual advances toward her on set. Boone allegedly felt so "unsafe" that she asked her fiancé, actor Marque Richardson, to be on set with her when Mitchell was around, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Boone was not the only one to complain about the star. Multiple women have come forward to speak up about similar interactions with the actor. As a result of the recent reports, Mitchell has been dropped from The Chi along with his talent agent UTA, his management team and an upcoming role in Netflix’s movie Desperados.

The naming will take place on June 10 at a ceremony being held for the “Juicy” rapper. Wallace’s family is expected to attend the gathering, which will be held at the intersections of Gates Avenue and St. James Place. The crossroad will reportedly be named Christopher Wallace Way in the forthcoming month.

The news arrives days after Wu-Tang Clan's Staten Island street-naming ceremony. "I'm happy that NYC officials are finally giving the city's indigenous 'hip-hop' music the respect and recognition that it deserves," culture advocate LeRoy McCarthy told Gothamist in 2018. "It took a long time and lots of hard work to advance the Christopher Wallace Way & Wu-Tang Clan District street co-naming, but ya know what, Hip Hop Don't Stop."

Biggie's upcoming ceremony will be open to the public and will start around 12 p.m. ET. His mother, Voletta Wallace, his children, and close friends will be present in his honor.
