TANESHA 'Shorty' Johnson, common-law wife of incarcerated deejay Vybz Kartel, is dispelling rumours that the entertainer suffered a heat stroke and was rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI), earlier this week.
However, in an exclusive interview with the Jamaica Observer yesterday, Johnson said Kartel did visit the hospital but is fine.
"He is okay. It was just a regular doctor's visit. His health is perfect," she told the Observer.
Johnson, who currently operates the label Short Boss Muzik, also oversees the business side of Vybz Kartel's music.

Despite his incarceration, Kartel's music continues to be in demand. more
