Dancehall artist PAMPUTTAE accused BEENIE MAN of attacking her while she was performing at a birthday party for Jamaica Labour Party East Portland candidate for Member of Parliament, Ann-Marie Vaz, in Portland last weekend. She told the attendees that she was almost attacked by Beenie Man at a recording studio. She claims the veteran entertainer tried to assault her with a stool after she failed to acknowledge his presence.
Me no like the man dem who quick fi beat woman because you want give me bun and you can’t take back bun. Listen me people, around three weeks ago Beenie Man draw stool fi lick me down for no reason at all, because true me hail everyone in the studio and never hail him. Because true me hail everybody in a the studio and never hail him. If it was a man him wouldn’t draw the stool to lick the man, but true me a woman, but me leave Beenie Man to time.
The feud between Beenie Man and Pamputtae has its origins from the Ghetto Splash in 2017. She accused him of using his influence to have her performance cut because he wanted to take the stage at a particular time.
Beenie Man’s attorney has vehemently refuted the assault claims and is threatening to file a lawsuit against for slander. He said:
We understand that statement to be completely false. There are several witnesses who have challenged her account of the interaction. Furthermore, we understand this is not the first time that Miss Eveana ‘Pamputtae’ Henry has uttered false statements against our client. We believe that Miss Henry’s statements rise to the level of defamation, and as such, will be seeking to recover damages should a full retraction not be forthcoming.
Pamputtae still insists that she was attacked three weeks ago and said that she will refrain from commenting on the situation any further other than there will be no retraction nor apology. Beenie Man has instructed his legal team to explore all legal avenues against her.
