'Vybz Kartel did NOT escape from prison!'

FALSE: Vybz Kartel is still in jail say Jamaican authorities

JAMAICAN POLICE have denied reports claiming that dancehall star Vybz Kartel had escaped from prison today (Nov 30).

The internet was flushed with unconfirmed reports, which alleged that the Clarks star had, with seven other inmates, broken free from the Horizon Adult Remand Centre in Spanish Town earlier this morning (Nov 29).

Gossip site Daily News claimed that one prison officer had died from a heart attack as a result of the escape, dubbed 'the biggest prison escape in Jamaican history,' and twelve others were injured, including two who were shot with guns that had been smuggled into the prison.

However, assistant commissioner of police Les Green told a Jamaican newspaper, "I know nothing about that. If that had taken place I would certainly have known."

Kartel, who was denied bail earlier this month (Nov 3), is accused of murdering Jamaicans Barrington 'Bossie' Bryan and Clive 'Lizard' Williams.

He is due in court later today (Nov 30).
