Imprisoned dancehall star Vybz Kartel has been ordered to pay a $15 million (£9.38 million) fine to settle a 2009 dispute after he failed to show for a scheduled concert.
The Jamaican rapper, real name Adidja Palmer, was booked to perform a concert in the Turks and Caicos Islands in August, 2009, but he didn't turn up to the venue, prompting angry crowdmembers to start rioting.
Promoter Alton Salmon filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the star, claiming he had taken a financial hit as a result of Kartel's no-show, while his reputation had also been left in tatters.
A Supreme Court judge awarded Salmon $127,736 (£79,835) to cover the loss of profit and demanded Kartel hand over $15 million in damages.
But the huge fine is just one of the embattled star's many legal problems - he's currently behind bars on two murder charges relating to two separate incidents in Jamaica over the summer (11).
He was granted bail for $3 million (£1.88 million) earlier this month (Dec11), but has yet to post the money.
A sleekly made thriller with a sparky sense of humour, this is also a rare action movie that has something important to say.
