Reggae singer Junior 'One Blood' Reid has been summoned to appear in the Linstead Resident Magistrate's Court on September 7 for $45,000 worth of fish that he allegedly failed to pay for.

Allegations, THE STAR was informed, are that on June 6, the entertainer took fish from the complainant, Besta Lloyd, with the agreement to pay for it after his annual show, Junior Reid Birthday Bash, held the same day in Portmore, St Catherine.

Having made a number of requests for his money and not receiving any favourable response from the artiste, legal redress was sought.

The complainant went to the Spanish Town Court's office in St Catherine, where he secured a summons to serve on the entertainer.

The document was served personally on Reid at his Eastwood Park Road office on Wednesday for his appearance in court.

However, when contacted yesterday, Reid said he was not served a summons.

"I don't know nothing 'bout that enuh. I don't see no police. I can't talk 'bout that," Reid told THE WEEKEND STAR.

He also said he will be leaving Jamaica today for a show in Portland, Oregon. He said he would return by Sunday for his son's, Wada Blood, birthday party. After that, he will return to the United States for two weeks to perform at several shows.

Reid is a singer/songwriter and producer who is known for his major hit, One Blood. He is also the former lead singer of the reggae group Black Uhuru.
