Sean Kingston

Washed up singer Sean Kingston is back in the headlines after stiffing yet another jeweler.

A New York watchmaker is accusing Kingston, 26, of paying for $300,000 worth of jewelry with bounced checks.

The jeweler, Aqua Master, filed a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court on Monday, according to the NY Daily News.

Kingston, whose real name is Kisean Anderson, traveled to NY from his native Miami to purchase nine high end pieces from Aqua Master, located on 47th Street and Fifth Ave.

After making his selections, Kingston said his Los Angeles-based business manager would pay for the pricey items via wire transfer.

When the wire transfer didn’t go through, Kingston paid for his purchases with $300,000 worth of bad checks.

Kingston’s mother, Janice Turner, is also named in the lawsuit.

Turner reportedly deposited one of the bad checks into Aqua Master’s account at a Los Angeles-area bank.

A man who identified himself to The Daily News as Kingston’s manager denied the allegations. The man was confident that the case would be thrown out of court.

Kingston, who is best known for his 2007 hit song “Beautiful Girls,” has a history of stiffing jewelers out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

In March 2015 he was ordered to pay $356,000 to Avi (Da Jeweler) Davidov in a default judgment.

    Can the fascination with big chains and jewelry just die already. You look foolish walking around with a big ass chain.

  • MissyJ

    If a wire doesn’t go through, I’m accepting a cashier’s check only. Shoooo famous people get no benefit of the doubt.

  • Nancy Drew is Ab Fab!

    These businesses get no sympathy from me; they’d never let one of us 9-to-5’ers walk out with even $200 worth of that gaudy jewelry. These greedy greasy jewellers and these blinged-out dummies deserve each other.

  • stevetheque

    Serves you right for giving this bum your jewels! What did he expect was going to happen?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    So Sean owes for jewelry like Tyga owes for rent. Pitiful. Why do folks keep extending these folks credit?!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

  • MissyJ

    ————–

    If you or I did that, we’d be in jail.

  • observer

    The only rappers that got away with big ropes (chains) was Run DMC! That ish is so outdated, and ghetto!!!

  • LeBrick James

    True.
    I’ve read that most billionaires don’t even carry much cash on them.

  • Pamela

    Our ancestors were forced to wear chains and in 2016 you have slave minded fools buying nice shining ones.

  • LeBrick James

    I guess he still makes money from shows. I dont know why anyone would pay to see him in concert though.

  • TeeTee

    yawns… this here

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    People with money usually don’t flex and drive a energy efficient cars…. a Honda prius or some shyt …… and will shop at Good will …. I know this for a fact …..lolol

  • LeBrick James

    Yup. A good fast-food franchise is like a money machine.
    Its hard work at first, but once they start rolling, you’re pretty much set for life if you have a few of them.

  • Buttercup

    I’m well. Preparing for my birthday this weekend. I don’t have any plans for a celebration. Just a lot of reflecting and understanding how to move forward.

    How have you and the Times been?

  • PhillyFacts

    He is the richest looking, broke brother I’ve ever seen in my life. Y????

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    Not shopping at nobody’s Goodwill…it’s called clearance…but I did drive a Prius and lol it’s made by Toyota not Honda…could go a month…month and a half without filling up…$15 bih!

  • LeBrick James

    That’s so true. There’s a Goodwill I go to sometimes in the affluent Buckhead neighborhood in Atlanta, and you’d be surprised how many Mercedes, Infinitis and Lexuses you’ll see in the parking lot.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    yes …….. They don’t spend like that ….. they have nice things but real low key with spending …

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Yup. Remember Jacob the Jeweler.

  • PhillyFacts

    They get no sympathy from me because my brothers and sisters are being killed, enslaved, and displaced by these jewelers who’s only concern is financial inflation by any means necessary.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I bet if you had that mess appraised it would be worth nickels.

  • felinelurker

    To hear a song Feline14 was singing when she was 7 & was on KidzBop…no thank you

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Most only spend money on things that appreciate. Investing. Will drive a 95 Honda and be happy.

  • LeBrick James

    Yup, that’s how they get their name out there.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Those are the best Goodwills to go to, the ones near the rich folks. This lady posted getting a Burberry dress for her daughter with tags for like 6 bucks.

  • Buttercup

    Cause the lot at the Dunwoody location is filled with those types of vehicles. It’s also next to an REI, so that could have something to do with it.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    You too fancy for Goodwill. Trust someone done tried on them pair of jeans you got from clearance. Stank snatch and all.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    CFA they own half and do all the maintenance. There’s not a CFA in America that doesn’t produce well.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    Lol I’m tall so don’t shop in the stores…Goodwill wouldn’t do a damn thing for me. I HAVE to shop online. My ish come wrapped in plastic ALWAYS lol.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    That they rewrapped when someone returned it.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Seems like I heard about Jacob the Jeweler in somebody’s rhyme in a song. But that was way back when. I guess IG is the move for that now.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Name and association. I don’t know why Kingston keep getting stuff.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    Lol true…either way I wash everything I buy before I wear it anyway. When I read that white bishes don’t even wash drawers before wearing I said white folks definitely got screws loose…

  • Buttercup

    They are SUPER hard to get into though. I think they approve less than 5% of the applicants. Once you’re approved, you have to be really hands-on with the business like going through a year-long, full-time training program then being involved to the daily operations.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    Most franchises do that…I knew someone that was gonna open a few Subways…too much ish involved for me. I’d just open my own damn deli and slap my name on it lol. But naw that’s why folks open franchises…proven, easy methods to follow.

  • LeBrick James

    Well, stop into that store on Roswell Rd. at least every few months. I’ve seen people go in and out of those cars with their Goodwill shopping bags in their hands.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I’ve read that. This girl I used to follow on IG (black) owns one. She started literally from the bottom as a cashier then moved her way up. I’ve never received bad service. When you inside they treat you like a sit down restaurant. Asking do you need a refill, can I take your tray. Do the kids want ice cream.

  • LeBrick James

    True. And a lot of these rappers own more in cars and jewelry than in properties and businesses.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    New post. Person we kept in the blog divorce.

  • MyNameIs

    When is an artist not getting sued? Wait…is he still considered an artist? Last I heard his mama was stealing people’s food pics on IG and claiming them as her own.

  • LeBrick James

    “Thanks for coming. Welcome to Applebees!”

  • MyNameIs

    As I look back…even then that ish was not cute!

  • MyNameIs

    Good morning!

  • Buttercup

    I’m an avid thrifter, so you know I know.

  • stav

    How in the world can he afford stainless steel jewelry ? 2007? Really? He must be making moves over on those islands, cause he was never someone I heard anyone listening to, and he just looks so corny.

  • bella28498 .

    Why is he famous?? He is ugly as hayell

  • iWasteTime

    Happy Early Bday! That sounds like a good use of your time.
    Times are good. Getting ready for school next week. 1st grade here we come!

  • iWasteTime

    Jenie!!! Hey boo hey!!

  • bella28498 .

    I don’t do goodwill either… Have to be careful what type of spirits you bring in ur house. I am big on energy and I don’t want the wrong type of energy lurking around my home.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Smh.

  • Alisa

    Where is he getting all this money? I mean if he came in my store like that 1st I wouldn’t take a check but I would be cautious to trust him buying my jewelry & being able to afford it. Nah! I’m going to need some cash. But can’t you call in a check to verify funds?!

  • Mel

    Why these folks giving him jewelry after them beautiful girls made him suicidal he ain’t never been the same. Didn’t this fool make up a story about getting kidnapped at gunpoint? He is the original Lochte

  • ramosyo

    He knew his ass wasn’t worth 300k phat lil f***

  • LeBrick James

    (just bad business practices on their part.)

    I would demand a certified check and call it in to verify it.

  • sunni_daze

    He hasn’t had hit in…since he came out. I think he’s drug dealer and uses singing for cover.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Sandra you can’t be surprised by this. He’s lucky he’s not sitting in jail because that’s pretty much grand theft.

    You can look at him and see where his money goes: to his stomach. He’s probably tapped out from his overextended line of revolving credit at Whole Foods and Pizza Hut.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    P.S., his music was, is and always has been tired. This dude is an example of why the music industry is in decline. His hype was grossly over-exaggerated and he sounds like Bob Marley trying to sound like T-Pain.

  • Ceezus

    Pathetic!

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    Your comments reminds me of the story a couple of years ago where Victoria Secrets and other big brands were caught selling underwear — including panties – after customers returned it to the store.

  • KLow

    they have a FAT CHANCE of getting any $ from that broke *****

  • fresnostateofmind

    LOL!

  • Michelle

    You would think with the type of money involved that the jewelers would do extensive background checks and get all monies up front.

  • TheWildChild

    Isn’t his father an attorney ?

  • Kilroy

    Daaaaaat ninja raat dere…

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    why is his name constantly in blog rotation? is he a local or jamaican artist now?

  • Antigone Heart

    People should try to cultivate more than their jewelry wardrobe but today’s recording artists would rather promote the pomp and circumstance of borrowed wealth and imprint their bodies, rather than their minds.

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    Dude been broke why he constantly buying jewelry?
