Though Dancehall/Reggae megastar, Mr. Vegas isn’t scheduled to release his debut novel until February, excerpts of this highly anticipated book have been leaked to the public; revealing some juicy details in the process.
In December, Vegas announced he was penning a cheating novel, Bare Tingz which he described was a fiction oriented piece. That announcement came two month after the singjay made headlines after catching his baby’s mother, Shellian McBayne sleeping with another man in his Florida home, allegedly in front of their almost two-year-old daughter.
Though Bare Tingz is slated for release next month, excerpts of the novel were leaked online, unveiling some eye-catching details of love, heartbreak and abuse. Originally obtained and published by entertainment website, Urban Islandz, here are excerpts from the first three chapters of the Bruk It Down singer’s novel.
Chapter 1: “After being crowned Miss Cornwall Beauty Queen in 1998, the young beauty moved to Kingston to be with her boyfriend Prince, where she continued on her quest to become Miss Jamaica and pursue her modeling career. Research showed her appearing in Kiprich “Breakout” video sometime around 1999. Neighbors at her Oakland Apartment recalled her nightly screams of uncontrolled passion and daily arguments between her and her boyfriend due to his insatiable appetite for women. They disappeared from Jamaica and ended up in Colombia, where she supposedly treated him to a live-in three-some relationship. He somehow violated the cardinal rules that structured their threesome relationship, which ultimately brought it to a violent end with blasts from a gun and multiple stab wounds. They were both very tight lipped about this Colombian incident.”
Perhaps the second chapter was most enticing, talking of Shellian’s relationship with fellow veteran deejay, Mr. G.
Chapter 2: A source in Westmoreland said the native, heartbroken damsel in distress came back to Jamaica and found comfort in the arms of her family. Her cousin who was at the time having a secret relationship with Mr. Vegas introduced the two. The cousin’s relationship was always colored with rivalry and jealousy, so cousin X kept Vegas close like a purse. Was Shellian using her cousin’s purse behind her back? Being of Indian descent the petite beau had a strong sex drive and dreams of fairy tale romance. She met and settled down with the DJ Mr. G (formerly known as Goofy). He was smitten and ignored the warnings that his friend Red Rat screamed in his hit song, “dat girl, dat girl Shellian, she gwaan like she sweet but have one bag a man”. He apparently found her “G-Spot” and she became pregnant with their first child. Accusations of mutual cheating, verbal abuse and physical altercation drove the couple to separate and an embittered custody battle for their son ensued. It is alleged that Mr. G’s high ranking police relative influence the judicial process and the Deejay won sole custody of their son. With the child being ripped away from her arms she became the embodiment of fury and scorn became her weapon of choice.”
Chapter 3: “Her cousin’s purse became her personal handbag and a steady relationship with Mr. Vegas was born. The emotionally delicate beauty found herself in constant argument with Vegas’ trailer load a gal dem, but it proved too much for her when she discovered what Mr. Vegas considered ‘OFF LIMITS.” They broke up. The vivacious Sagittarian armed herself with courage and being hopeful romantic, she boarded a plane to be with ex-boyfriend, Prince in New York, who she had not seen in six years. According to a family friend she became pregnant and she tattooed his name on the back of her neck as a celebration of a new beginning between him and her. Her hopes were short-lived after she developed complications which ultimately ended the pregnancy. Her grief, coupled with Prince continued womanizing behavior left her no choice but to return to Jamaica. Her heart was tired, and it shattered like shards of glass from all these years or relationship fatigue. The fragmented pieces of her heart became ice-cubes, and she was left with an ice-box where her heart used to be. Her “Prince” tattoo became “Princess”, she went back to Vegas and she decided privately in her heart, that she would drink her soup when it got cold. A friend of hers who wants to remain anonymous confessed that Shellian’s favourite artist is Vybz Kartel and she usually listens to his songs to cheer herself up. When the writer of the alleged ‘Cheating Files” ask the friend what is Shellian’s next move? She smiled ominously and said, “Karma is the bitch that is driving and Shelly is just riding shot-gun. If you look close enuf you wi realize seh har life is just like a chess game an di queen checkmate di king.”
In addition to the book, Mr. Vegas is scheduled for a court appearance Feb. 4, as he is seeking full custody of his daughter. Additionally, he has been trying to auction off furniture from his Florida home, which was recently put up for sale.
