Despite rumours that his recent performance in Guyana was marred by bottles being hurled at him, artiste Tommy Lee Sparta and his team are vehemently denying these allegations.

Rumours began spreading via Blackberry messenger and social media sites that Tommy Lee Sparta's performance at Slingerz Christmas party came to an abrupt end because he was being bottled.

According to Tommy Lee's publicist, Keona Williams, the allegations are false.

"It was one of the biggest shows in Guyana and that crowd was there because of Tommy Lee. There were no boos or bottles and we have the video footage to prove this," she said.

Promoters of the event also backed up her claims, stating that Tommy Lee had one of the biggest receptions ever in Guyana.

"The Guyanese locals went on and did their thing and then Popcaan went on and gave a really good performance, but the night really belonged to Tommy Lee. I have never seen people behave so eager to see an artiste. He turned the venue upside down and the whole place was in a frenzy," a representative of Slingerz Entertainment, promoters for the show, told THE STAR.

erratic behaviour

He went on to say that because of the erratic behaviour of the fans, the police had to intervene.

"The patrons were pushing down the VIP barriers because they wanted to get closer to him (Tommy Lee Sparta). His reception was awesome. He was never bottled, the crowd was excited and kept throwing bottles in the air, but they were never throwing it at Tommy Lee. Even now, people keep asking when we are gonna book him for another show here again."

Despite allegations that he was also arrested in his hometown of Montego Bay over the weekend, Williams told THE STAR that these allegations were also false.

"He was never arrested. The police only questioned him about an incident that had occurred in the area. He has no affiliation with the incident so he was not arrested," she said.
