Woman files $80 million suit, pens book about reggae star.
A spurned ex-lover is attempting to hit Sean Paul where it hurts — his wallet and his reputation. The woman, Swiss-born Susanne Persson, is suing Paul in a New York court for $80 million, claiming the massively popular reggae singer had her deported from Jamaica and drove her to attempt suicide.
Legal documents from the suit, obtained by the New York Post, include an illustrated tell-all book filled with embarrassing allegations about Paul's personal life. In the book, Persson alleges that Paul has a cocaine addiction, is connected with murders in Jamaica and has difficulty sustaining an erection. She also claims that Paul had her forcibly removed from the country in 2010 by bribing police to have her put on a plane back to Stockholm. She provides a receipt from the plane ticket, which was paid for by Paul's promotions company, Headline Entertainment.
Before she left Jamaica, Persson says she tried to commit suicide.
"I had tried to kill myself, losing more than one liter of blood from a cut on my wrist,” she writes in the court filing. “I had shown the pictures of the cuts to Sean over the Internet. I feel he should see what he had caused.”
Paul's lawyer, Tom Taveres-Finson, denies Persson's allegations.
