Jailed entertainer Adidjah 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer was reportedly rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies under heavy police guard after complaining of pains in his side on Monday.

Sources close to the entertainer told Loop News that the entertainer reportedly has a kidney infection.

"He had been complaining of feeling pains since Wednesday and had been examined by the medical staff at the Tower Street facility, but yesterday evening, he began complaining again, and he was finally taken to UWI hospital," a reliable source told Loop News.

The artiste is now awaiting the result of tests conducted on him and is being treated for the kidney infection, the source said.

"Needless to say, his family is concerned about his health," the source said.

Kartel is serving a life sentence for the murder of associate Clive 'Lizard' Williams.  Despite being behind bars for nearly six years, his music still dominates the local airwaves.
