The common-law wife of Vybz Kartel, Tanesha “Shorty” Johnson, has suffered a miscarriage, according to a source in the deejay’s wife inner circle.
According to the source, while Vybz Kartel was hospitalized, Shorty also had to go and see her doctor after experiencing problems with her pregnancy.
“It was very stressful for her,” the source said. “She still loves Kartel and he being in the hospital really stressed her. Add that to the fact that she was already stressed not just for being pregnant for another man but that man’s was Kartel’s main rival. All of that took a tool on her pregnancy.”
24 Karat Reggae were the first to break Shorty’s pregnancy for Mavado. Right after that news broke; Kartel was rushed to the hospital in excruciating pain. This led many people to believe that it was the news of Shorty’s pregnancy that caused Kartel to be sick but it was later revealed that it was a kidney infection.
Some Gaza and Gully fans are not buying the miscarriage news and are suggesting that Shorty might have had an abortion.
“Not a miscarriage she nuh have. A dash way she dash way Mavado baby,” one fan commented on Social media.
“Maybe Kartel fake his sickness just so he could go to the hospital and talk to Shorty face to face and let her know that there is no way on earth she can give birth to Mavado’s baby,” another fan commented.
Vybz Kartel and Mavado were arch rivals before Kartel was convicted of murder. Even behind bars, Kartel still released songs taking jabs at Mavado.
Vybz Kartel has been released from the hospital and is now back in prison. He is serving a life sentence for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.
