The camp for fast-rising deejay Tommy Lee is denying that the artiste had anything to do with offensive messages sent from a Twitter account believed to be his and for which the police are reported to be seeking him for questioning.
A highly-placed source informed our news team that the deejay is being sought in relation to messages that were sent from a Twitter account on Saturday. Word reaching THE STAR is that following an interview at a television station in St Andrew yesterday, several policemen swooped down on the premises in search of the entertainer who had already left.
In an interview yesterday, Keona Williams, the artiste’s publicist, said that since last week she has had to shut down a total of 18 Twitter and 21 Facebook accounts which were all fake.
“Tweets are coming out from fake accounts and they have gone from bad to worst. It has escalated now, they are saying that ‘terrorism tweets’ are coming out of the account,” she said.
According to Williams, the fake accounts are also being used to scam the public. “They are begging credit and taking money for dub plates. It’s like a scam that’s going on,” she noted.
At the same time, Heavy D, the deejay’s manager, told THE STAR that he has been in contact with the police and that the deejay is not wanted.
“They just want to question him because of this whole Internet pages thing, people are writing dangerous things. People answering Bounty which is not us, we not saying anything about Bounty,” he expressed.
Further, he said Tommy Lee is all about the music. “It may sound edgy and dark at times but it’s just music.”
The deejay’s camp wants persons to know that Tommy Lee is not a violent person and that he has never had any run-ins with the law.
According to the camp, Tommy Lee has only one Twitter and one Facebook account. On Twitter his name is ‘Tommyleerv’ while on Facebook it is ‘Tommyleervsparta’.
In light of the situation they are advising the public to be extremely careful when trying to book the artiste for shows.
“They are booking shows and collecting money for dub plates but I am the only person who do bookings for Tommy Lee,” Heavy D said.
Meanwhile, when contacted for a comment yesterday, Senior Superintendent of Police, Fitz Bailey, head of the Organised Crime Investigation Division (OCID) said he was not aware of the matter as he was currently on leave.
When the division was later contacted, THE STAR was told by an officer that OCID was not seeking the artiste.
