Platinum Camp was informed by very reliable sources that Reggae superstar Capleton and his legal expert ‘Christopher Townsend’ are in possession of WhatsApp voice notes that one can clearly hear the alleged rape victim badgering the accused for money. Could this be a case of extortion? It was reported earlier today that Capleton was granted bail to the sum of $250,000 and the return of his travel documents. It was also alleged that the accused was ordered to have no further contact with the complainant.
The first Court appearance in the Capleton rape matter took place today in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court. Capleton was successful in getting bail in the amount of $250,000 JMD.
Capleton whose given name is Clifton Bailey was arrested and charged with rape on Friday. The 51-year-old entertainer has always prided himself on being a law-abiding Jamaican over the years. Even though so many other artistes have been in trouble with the law, Capleton has never had any problems with anyone. So now he is confident that the truth will set him free and he has been getting a lot of support from his friends and colleagues in the music industry.
His lawyer Christopher Townsend is also very confident about victory for his client as Capleton has had a good track record, he believes good will overcome evil and justice will prevail in this case.
It is alleged that the woman was hired to groom his hair and he had sexual intercourse with her without her consent. This caused him to be charged by detectives from (CISOCA) the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offenses and Child Abuse on Friday. While out on bail Capleton is ordered to stay away from the complainant and no form of contact is permitted according to the judge. On the other hand the fireman is allowed to travel and perform while out on bail.

Meek Mill was freed from prison Tuesday after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered his immediate release. The state’s highest court directed a judge who’d jailed him to let the rapper out on “unsecured bail.”
The 30-year-old, whose real name is Robert Williams, issued a statement thanking his family and public advocates — who included Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and rapper Jay-Z — and said he looks forward to returning to his music career.
Michael Rubin, co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, posted an Instagram photo with Meek Mill on their way to the 76ers’ playoff game. Meek Mill rang the team’s ceremonial bell and met with several players in the locker room before tip-off. Rubin has been one of Mill’s many supporters and visited him several times in jail.
Popcaan and Beenie Man are beefing again and Drake is defending his chargie.
In case you have been in the dark, last weekend a video went viral on social media of Beenie Man grossly disrespecting Popcaan and his mother. The Unruly Boss and his fans have been responding to the dancehall legend accusing him of being “badmind.” Dancehall fans have been hammering Beenie since the video was posted all over the net earlier this week.
“Moses me rate you as a icon inna music, but don’t feel like yo can style me or miss Rhona,” Popcaan wrote on Instagram. “If me never respect you me woulda tell yo fi do the same to yo mother… but me see say a waste a time, and a next thing humbre you need fi find a song like family then yo chat pu**y, Beenie a big pu**y.”
Drake commented on the post that Popcaan made supporting his comrade. “Jump fence,” the Toronto rapper wrote. Drizzy and the Unruly Boss have been friends for years, but interestingly the two still don’t have a collaboration despite Drake collaborating with Beenie Man on his 2016 album Views.
Based on the response Drake gave to the feud, don’t expect any more collaboration with Beenie Man in the near future and certainly, there won’t be any collaboration between Beenie and Popcaan.
The Doc also released a video apologizing to Popcaan while coughing up an explanation about what went down saying that it was someone else he was trying to diss but used a lyric from one of the deejay’s songs to reference his point. Nevertheless, this doesn’t reflect well on Beenie’s part especially since other dancehall stars were in his presence including Shenseea and Christopher Martin.
Most fans seems to see it as a straight up diss not only towards Popcaan, but also his mother Ms. Rhona.
