Vybz Kartel And American Business Partner Split Ways
If he's not being slandered and frowned upon for his ‘cake soap’ skin lightening venture, his new extension hairstyle or taking shots at Shabba Ranks, he's being aired out by his business partner. Vybz Kartel's American former business partner, Corey Todd, the owner of Kartel's The Building nightclub in Kingston, released a press release announcing the end of his business relationship with the dancehall star...
Todd said he that has been verbally threatened by the artist and he added that is he
not the same guy he used to know:
“Kartel and I haven’t seen eye to eye in a while, and late last week, after a disagreement, he threatened me on the phone. I have contacted my lawyers and the relevant authorities to deal with this issue immediately. I am my own man, I have never worked for Vybz Kartel, I helped to build his career. I don’t understand the creative direction he’s moving in with regards to his image or his music. I don’t know this new Vybz Kartel. I haven’t known him for quite a while.”
In a counter-statement, Kartel denied threatening Todd, but confirmed the end of
“It has come to my attention that rumors have been circulating that I have made certain disparaging remarks about and towards Mr. Corey Todd. I must state that nothing could be farther from the truth. Mr. Todd and I have had a cordial business and personal relationship to date. However, we have reached a point in our professional journey where we are going in different directions and consequently we will be wrapping up our business relationship."
It didn't take long for Todd to reply back, having this to say:
“That statement is a pack of lies! Why would I prematurely end a business relationship when it was generating over 10 million a month? Why would I be willing to walk away from a ‘relationship’ of that magnitude if it were so cordial and so good? Kartel cannot call me a liar and hide behind polite words; I know the truth about who you really are.”
Todd even continued to hint that if anything was to happen to him, look no further
than Kartel. "If anything happens to me, they should know where to look, that's it," he stated.
As a duo, Todd & Kartel are notorious for starting the Unlimited Daggering company, which manufactures and distributes 'Street Vybz Rum' and also ‘Street Vybz Thursdays’ at The Building Nightclub. The business has been going on since November 2009.
