This week, the music world was caught off guard as a SWAT operation led to the arrest of Sean Kingston and his mother, Janice Turner. They were arrested following a raid on the singer’s rented Southwest Ranches mansion. Both are facing multiple charges related to fraud and theft.

At the time of the raid, the singer was in California. He was intercepted and arrested on a warrant issued by the state of Florida and is now subject to the same charges as his mother. Broward police confirmed that Kingston was arrested without incident.

He is now expected to be incarcerated in a San Bernardino jail. The details surrounding the arrests are still complex and reportedly involve high-value electronics.

The SWAT team was seen leaving with a truckload of items following the search.

According to several reports, Florida-based Ver Ver Entertainment filed a lawsuit against Kingston last February. According to the complaint, Kingston had contacted the company for a massive 232-inch TV and audio system worth $150,000. He allegedly haggled to lower the deposit required for the purchase. Kingston allegedly made no payment after the initial deposit of $30,000. Ver Ver Entertainment accused him of fraud and breach of contract.

He also allegedly defaulted on several promotional collaborations with Justin Bieber that never materialized.

It’s worth noting that this is not Kingston’ s mother’s first courtroom appearance. Indeed, federal court records reveal that in 2006, she pleaded guilty to bank fraud, which earned her a sentence of nearly a year and a half in prison for stealing over $160,000. As for her son, his degree of involvement in the case is still unclear.

Kingston reacted on Instagram.

Ver Ver Entertainment ‘s legal representatives have expressed a desire to reclaim their property in the Kingston mansion. Dennis Card, the company’s lawyer, weighed in on the situation and said that Kingston is using his celebrity to present a false public image. He has created this larger-than-life persona of a wealthy man, and his mother is an essential part of it.

The Beautiful Girls singer hasn’t released an album in over ten years. His recent legal troubles add a new chapter to his turbulent career, including a near-fatal jet ski accident in 2011.

It remains to be seen how the allegations against Kingston will affect his career and personal life as the legal proceedings progress. He and Kingston’ s mother await their turn in court to see if the case will be resolved favorably.
