Prison officials have confirmed that dancehall star Vybz Kartel, whose given name is Adidja Palmer, is currently at a medical facility receiving treatment.

They are, however, tight-lipped and reluctant to divulge details about the entertainer's health status.

“This is nothing new, as he has been to the hospital before to receive medical care. At this time we are not going to disclose any medical condition, nor are we going to disclose any location. We can confirm that he is receiving routine medical care based on a medical issue, at a medical facility,” the source told The Gleaner

Unofficial sources say the dancehall star may require surgery to correct health issues relating either his liver, kidney or thyroid.

More details to follow.
