Sean Kingston Facing Arrest Warrant Over Grand Theft Charge

American-Jamaican singer, Sean Kingston has reportedly been charged with grand theft and has an arrest warrant in his name in connection over an unpaid jeweler, TMZ reports.

Police sources told the outlet that Kingston has not yet paid for the good, leading to the warrant.

The criminal complaint also notes that bail will be set at $45,000 and that Kingston could serve up to three years in prison if convicted in connection with the case.

The 30-year-old singer is best known for the hits “Beautiful Girls,” “Eenie Meenie” and “Fire Burning.” Kingston has had issues with paying for jewelry in the past, even being sued multiple times.

Last night, Kingston appeared to react to the reports by posting a series of clips, including showing off a diamond-studded watch on Instagram.

The rapper has had issues with jewelry bills in the past. Back in 2016, TMZ reported that New York jeweler Aqua Master sued him for not paying for over nine pieces, worth a combined $300,000. According to the lawsuit, the jeweler received two checks instead of a wire transfer, and both checks bounded. The jeweler claimed Kingston could be seen wearing the jewelry in Instagram posts. In April 2017, Kingston told TMZ he always paid for his jewelry. However, in February 2018, TMZ reported the judge issued a default judgment because Kingston never responded to the lawsuit in court.
