Sean Kingston Shows Off His Rides, Diamond Watch While Wanted for Grand Theft

As countless feuds, whether real or played up for the sake of publicity, have shown, there is no greater offense to a rapper than claiming he or she is broke. Sean Kingston knows that only too well.

The Jamaican-American rapper, who shot to fame in 2007 with the release of Beautiful Girls after being discovered on MySpace, has somewhat of a track record for ordering expensive jewelry and not paying for it. Until now, this was mostly a he-said-she-said type of thing, with various jewelers accusing him over the years of stiffing them of hundreds of thousands’ worth of bling.

This time, it’s on paper: Sean Kingston has an arrest warrant in his name for the charge of grand theft and bail has been set at $45,000, after he stiffed another jeweler, TMZ says. The warrant stems from an allegation that he ordered the bling and took delivery of it, but never made good on his promise to pay for it.

Though he is in the police database, cops aren’t actively looking to arrest him, the report notes. This probably explains Kingston’s nonchalant attitude to the situation, and his decision to keep flouting his wealth on social media. Available below is a video with snippets from his latest IG Stories, in which he shows off his Lamborghini Urus and a white Mercedes Maybach, as well as a diamond watch.

You can’t possibly be poor if you have such sweet rides, live in a mansion and have more ice on your wrist and neck than your mom’s freezer.

Jokes aside, if found guilty, Kingston is facing three years behind bars. His track record could end up working against him in the court, since it points to a pattern and a clear intention of leveraging his celebrity weight to stiff businesses and get free stuff.

In 2018, he was ordered in court to remit $301,500 to a jeweler for a nine-piece lot he had failed to pay as agreed. The lot included the usual, watches, a couple of necklaces, one ring and several gold chains. That same year, only a few months later, another jeweler accused him of similar behavior.

And the list goes on: in 2015, he was kidnapped after having words with a jeweler over a $225,000 unpaid bill, while another took the civilized route by suing him for refusing to pay the $356,000 he owed for several diamond and gold pieces.
