Ky-Mani MARLEY loses his cool
Singer Ky-Mani Marley was detained briefly by police in Cleveland, Ohio last Tuesday after threatening a disc jockey in that city.
Marley was in Cleveland promoting his autobiography, Dear Dad, on WMMS FM/100.7 when host DJ Rover allegedly made sexual comments about his mother, Anita Belnavis.
The singer reportedly left the studio but was told that the DJ continued making suggestive remarks about his mother on air. Marley returned, barged into the studio and threatened to assault Rover whose real name is Shane French.
Police were contacted and they detained Marley for 45 minutes. Rover declined to press charges and Marley was released.
Belnavis was a leading table tennis player in the Caribbean when she became pregnant for reggae superstar Bob Marley in 1975.
Their son, Ky-Mani, was born the following year.
