  • Shauna Chyn faces heat over hotel bills - Threatens to sue to clear name

    Dancehall artiste Shauna Chyn says she is currently in discussions with her lawyer on how best to handle a situation that has arisen between her and a Ocho Rios-based bed and breakfast establishment.

    Chyn, in an interview withTHE WEEKEND STAR, denied claims by the establishment's marketing manager Homar Gayle that she left a bill of more than $43,000 after staying three nights there late last month. She says Gayle has been tarnishing her name and reputation with these claims and reveals she is looking at filing a defamation of character law suit against.

    "I am now talking to my attorney so tell this man that I'm ready. She's telling me the right channels to go through with this one. I'm not playing with these people this year," she said.

    The entertainer, who provided THE WEEKEND STAR with a receipt for food purchased during her stay at the hotel, said she gave Gayle a sum of $20,000 before her arriving at the hotel as payment for the two rooms booked under her name. According to her, the rooms cost $11,000 per room per night. She admitted to only owing the establishment $2,000 pointing out that she was willing to settle arrears for that amount, but was unwilling to pay anything other than that.




    When THE WEEKEND STAR spoke to Gayle he said he never received any money from the entertainer as the arrangement was for her to settle her account upon check out. He claimed that Chyn left the hotel under the impression that she would return and it was only when they discovered the room keys on the bed in her room that they realised that she had bailed on the bill.

    "I will tell her to proceed and do whatever she needs to do," he said, when told that Chyn plans to sue him. "Everyone knows she came to the hotel, stayed, accumulated this bill, and left without paying ... I have proof and I will go to court when she is ready. I am getting the company lawyer ready as well so tell her to do what she needs to do".

    When THE WEEKEND STAR asked Gayle whether he had a signed contract between Chyn and anyone at the hotel as proof that she had agreed to the 'pay when you leave' deal, he said no as the arrangement was a verbal one. He pointed out that having gone that route with the entertainer before, he did not anticipate any problems as everything had gone smoothly the first time around.

    Gayle told THE WEEKEND STAR that the matter was reported to the Ocho Rios police. However, when THE WEEKEND STAR contacted the station, a policeman said there was no record of such a report being filed. Chyn, however, confirmed that an officer did get in touch with her about the whole fiasco.

    When THE WEEKEND STAR contacted that police officer he confirmed his attachment to the Ocho Rios police, but explained that no formal report was made as Gayle contacted him as a friend to advise Chyn to settle her debt.

    Jamaican comedian and Instagram/YouTube star Prince Marni and Trinidadian dancer Inhalemee are tying the knot.

    Prince Marni, whose real name is Anthony Grant, proposed to his longtime girlfriend, whose real name is Denisha Burton on Thursday.

    Marni is popularly known for his skits and multiple personalities, including character Susan. Inhalemee is a well-known dancer, starring in Machel Montano's music video for 'Fast Wine' in 2017 and toured with him extensively as one of his lead dancers for Carnival 2018.

    The two broke up briefly last year and there was widespread speculation that Marni cheated after Inhalemee posted a mysterious Instagram post: “Wanna have your cake and eat it to not with me boo #SelfLove#LadiesRespectYourself". They rekindled things soon after.

    The two made the announcement on their respective Instagram accounts. Prince Marni posted a photo of Inalemee flashing her ring, saying:

  • Ron Muschette's son reportedly denied graduation because of haircut

    Cornwall College in Montego Bay, St James is unlikely to be in the fan book of Mello FM Radio's mega-presenter, Ron Muschette, for some time to come.

    This is after the showman's son was reportedly denied perhaps his only opportunity to graduate from the school he attended because of concerns about the height of his hair.

    But with the lad's haircut being posted from all relevant angles on Muschette's Facebook page, obviously for public consumption and perspectives, the mystery is well and truly on as to what height hair was in question?

    Yes, it could be said that the haircut was extremely well done - as neat as can be. But height concerns? What height in fact?

    It has been said that the school's dean of discipline took the decision to ban young Muchette from the 2017 graduate ceremony, reportedly on the basis of his hair being too tall, leaving the youngster out of the entire exercise - no gown, no goose pimples, no picture - nothing!

    In response to the Facebook post, expressions of bewilderment and even anger were commonplace, with responders almost unanimously asking on what basis the haircut that is posted could be considered to be too tall for a high school graduation, or any graduation for that matter?

    Below are some of the responses to the posting.

    Carey Pondemik James:

    "As a past student of this school, I will admit that this is total s...".

    Joy Foote

    "This is crazy... his hair is fine".

    Ricardo Skeen

    "Like realy"?

    Carter Bossladylaura

    "A di young man hair a graduate? Smh.... too... bad mind".

    Marva Valentine-Baksh

    "Excuse!!!........ Hair too high to Graduate???......SICKOS.....".

    Julie Daley

    "Wth?? What is wrong with people"?

    Shelly-Ann Harrison

    "Oh gosh, this is just wickedness".

    Mia Witter

    "Really? Wow"!!

    Claudene McKoy

    "Jealous and bad mind".

    Tanek McKenzie

    "Aww bwoy".

    Shan World-Changer

    "Kmt is GRADUATION. #Foolishness".

    Claudene Reboe Cho...

    "... makes no sense at all... When will this crap about children's hair end?? Kmt offa crap."

    But in the midst of it all, the Muschettes can perhaps take some comfort in the fact that their experience was limited to being reportedly banned from an exercise, and was nothing like the strong-arm, institutional barbering drill that was reportedly unveiled at Vauxhall High School in Kingston earlier this year.
