Rapper Sean Kingston’s home raided by cops over alleged failure to pay for $150K sound system

Authorities in South Florida searched the home of Jamaican singer and rapper Sean Kingston on Thursday.

Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputies swarmed the posh Southwest Ranches property, with multiple police cruisers parked inside and outside the main gate, WSVN’s overhead video showed.

Kingston, whose real name is Kisian Paul Anderson, is accused of failing to pay for a $150,000 entertainment system, authorities told the outlet.

As reported by WSVN, the allegations stem from a lawsuit filed in February by Ver Entertainment LLC against the “Beautiful Girls” singer.

Dennis Card, the company’s lawyer, was outside Mr Kingston’s home while the search was underway.

“He said he works with Justin Bieber and of course he’s doing a big show here, but this is a rental house and he doesn’t own it,” Card told WSVN.

“He uses his celebrity status to entice people into releasing something without paying them, and then he never pays,” the lawyers argued.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office is expanding its initial search to other areas of the Kingston home, Card added.

“He’s stealing the property itself,” Card said.

“He has a standardized script that says he’s a recording artist, sure he is, and he wants to buy these things, but he never pays. He gets the thing and that’s the end of the story. He does it over and over again.”
