A jilted lover is suing Grammy Award-winning reggae artist Sean Paul in New York for $80 million — and taking intimate revenge in the process - claiming he had her illegally deported from Jamaica and drove her to attempt suicide.
Susanne Persson, a busty blonde from Sweden, said Paul "bribed Jamaican police" to oust her from the country in June 2010, the suit claims.
The documents, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, include an illustrated, self-written, 120-page tell-all that promises on its cover to allegedly expose: "The Truth About Sean Paul's Cocaine Dealings, Lies, Murders and Erection Problems."
The work, titled "Irie Jamboree: My life in Jamaica as a jet set slave with the enormous secret of a love affair with Jamaica's perhaps most well known Dancehall Artist" has a childishly hand-drawn cover depicting Persson in a blue sari and Paul with his signature Mohawk.
"Ever since [Paul] started using cocaine regularly, he has had severe erection problems. If it lasts one minute, it is a good day" Persson alleges in the 11-chapter work, which she submitted as a supporting document to her self-filed lawsuit.
Persson included her American Airlines itinerary from Kingston, Jamaica, to Stockholm, Sweden, on June 24, in the court filing. Headline Entertainment, Paul's promotion company, made the reservation, according to the receipt. Immigration authorities forced her to board the plane, the lawsuit claims.

Reached in Jamaica, Paul's lawyer denied the deportation allegations.
"He would not have the power to do that" said attorney Tom Taveres-Finson.
The day before Persson was allegedly booted from the country, she claims she attempted suicide. "I had tried to kill myself, losing more than one liter of blood from a cut on my wrist" she wrote in the court filing. "I had shown the pictures of the cuts to Sean over the Internet. I feel he should see what he had caused."
Persson said the singer, who turns 40 next week and whose hits include "She Doesn't Mind" and "Get Busy" ruined her life.
He subjected her to "starvation, homelessness, repeated suicide attempts, loss of ability to generate income" the complaint alleges.
Persson did not return calls for comment.
In the exhibit to her filing, she brags about her "long, blonde Barbie hair" and "E-cup bra size", claiming Paul took hundreds of nude photos of her "obtained under the pretext of a future marriage."
