Jamaican dancehall star Vybz Kartel was sentenced to life in prison for the 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ William on Thursday in a 65-day trail that is said to be the longest in the history of Jamaica’s Circuit Court.

Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, was found guilty of murdering his former associate at his house in Havendale, St Andrew after a fight about missing guns. William’s body was never found but reports state that evidence of a confiscated text conversation from Kartel’s phone shows that the he claimed that the body was chopped up into “mincemeat”.

But that’s not all, Vybz has also been found guilty of “attempting to pervert the course of justice as related to the William’s murder case,” for advising conspirators make it seem like they thought William was still alive by filing robbery charges against him.

Kartel who will only be eligible for parole after he serves 35 years is not the only one going to jail. Dancehall artist Shawn Storm, Andre St. John and Kahira Jones also received life sentences in connection to the murder.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
