Sean Kingston Arrested After House Raid for Fraud & Theft

May 27, 2024

Things have taken a turn for the worse for Sean Kingston. Just hours after a SWAT raid on his Florida mansion led to the arrest of his mother, Janice Turner, on fraud and theft charges, Kingston himself was apprehended at a California concert. He was performing at Fort Irwin for U.S. Army personnel when the authorities arrested him, as documented by social media updates and some show clips. Kingston is currently awaiting extradition to Florida, where these charges originated, from a San Bernardino jail. Reacting to his and his mother’s arrests, Kingston posted on his Instagram Story, “People love negative energy! I am good and so is my mother! My lawyers are handling everything as we speak.”

These legal troubles stem from a lawsuit filed earlier this year by Ver Ver Entertainment LLC. The company alleges that Kingston breached his contract and committed fraud when he tried to purchase a large TV and sound system from them. Instead of paying over $100,000 for the equipment, he reportedly promised that he and his “Eenie Meenie” collaborator Justin Bieber would create promotional videos for the company. After making a $30,000 down payment and promising another $47,000 later, Kingston allegedly failed to deliver the promotions once the TV was installed.
