The arrest came in connection with allegations that Kingston defrauded technology companies out of thousands of dollars in deals for televisions and speaker systems.

He was sued in February by Ver Ver Entertainment LLC for alleged breach of contract and fraud. post According to reports, the rapper contacted the company on Instagram to purchase the 232-inch TV and sound system.

The equipment cost $111,000, but Kingston agreed to produce a promotional video for the product with his friend Justin Bieber.

But after the purchase, the rapper didn’t follow through on his promises, the company alleged in its lawsuit. The company also said that at the time of the TV purchase, Kingston had no “ongoing employment” with the pop star and no “intent” to produce promotional content for him.

Kingston and Bieber, 30, famously collaborated on the song “Eeny Meany” from Bieber’s 2010 debut album.

Robert Rosenblatt, an attorney representing the rapper and his mother, said he was “aware of some of the allegations” against the couple.

“We will address these issues in court and look forward to a successful resolution for Sean and his mother,” Rosenblatt said.
