Sean Kingston Arrested After Florida Home Raided By SWAT Team

Kingston’s 61-year-old mother was arrested during the raid on numerous fraud and theft charges.

Recording artist Sean Kingston was arrested on May 23 on fraud charges after his South Florida residence was raided earlier in the day by a SWAT team of police officers.

According to The Associated Press, the “Beautiful Girls” singer was taken in without incident on fraud charges in California. This took place after his 61-year-old mother, Janice Turner, was arrested during the raid that took place at the mansion he is renting located in Southwest Ranches. Officers were seen taking items away in a van. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office stated that the artist was arrested on a Florida warrant.
Kinston, who was born Kisean Anderson, posted a message on his Instagram account assuring fans that he and his mother was good and his attorneys were “handling” the situation before the message was deleted.

“People love negative energy! I am good, and so is my mother! … My lawyers are handling everything as we speak.”

The raid was done due to a lawsuit that was filed against Kingston accusing him of not paying for some items including a 232-inch TV, according to attorney Dennis Card, whose client is the one suing Kingston.

Kingston hasn’t released a charted record in over five years. Card alleges that he is a scammer who has judgments against him totaling more than a million dollars.

Robert Rosenblatt, who is representing Kingston and Turner stated in an email to The Associated Press, “we are aware of some of the allegations” against the pair. “We look forward to addressing these in court and are confident of a successful resolution for Shawn and his mother.”
