Popular American businessman and Vybz Kartel’s former business associate, Corey Todd will appear in court on Tuesday to answer an assault charge stemming from an incident Stone Love selector, Bill Cosby earlier this month.
Todd reportedly received a summons to appear in Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court this past to answer the charge relating from an altercation with between the two men inside Club Riddim.
The incident occurred while Cosby was juggling during the weekly Club Riddim event, Swag Tuesdays. During Cosby’s set, he played a series of Vybz Kartel songs including a song by “Di Teacha” that allegedly takes lyrical shots at Todd. In an attempt to dissuade Cosby from playing the song, Todd initially dropped a cup then a banner on the Stone Love disc jock’s head to gain his attention. After ignoring Todd attempts, Cosby claims that Todd approached him with a box full of CDs; throwing them at Cosby who knocked away the box. The disc jock intimated that he was injured in the industry.
Todd later confirmed that altercation taking place and that he did indeed drop a banner on Cosby’s head but insisted that the altercation was far from physical. Nevertheless, Todd said that the Kartel diss song towards him sparked the incident and insisted that no Kartel diss songs or any diss songs in general should be played at any Club Riddim event.
Todd is the former business partner of Vybz Kartel, who he severed ties with after alleging the “Dancehall Hero” made threats on his life.
