Sean Paul - Sean Paul Sued By Ex-girlfriend

Dancehall star Sean Paul has been hit with an $80 million (£50 million) lawsuit from a former lover.

Susanne Persson filed papers at Manhattan Supreme Court in New York late last month (Dec12), alleging the Gimme The Light hitmaker had her illegally deported from Jamaica and drove her to attempt suicide.

In the documents, she claims, "I had tried to kill myself, losing more than one litre of blood from a cut on my wrist. I had shown the pictures of the cuts to Sean over the Internet. I feel he should see what he had caused."

Persson made the alleged attempt on her life in June, 2010, a day before she was deported back to her native Sweden by officials.

She claims Paul "bribed Jamaican police" to kick her out of the country - an allegation the star's representative denies.

Attorney Tom Taveres-Finson tells the New York Post, "He would not have the power to do that."

Persson is seeking $80 million in damages from Sean Paul, his road manager Steve Wilson, and the star's label, Atlantic Records.

She claims she was a "jet set slave" for Paul, and threatened to go public about his "lies... and erection problems" when he allegedly threatened to have her deported.

Her court documents include a receipt for a flight from Jamaica to Stockholm, Sweden, which was paid for by Headline Entertainment, Sean Paul’s Kingston-based management company.

Paul has refused to comment on the pending litigation.
