Sean Kingston Faces Default Judgement
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Sean Kingston is being accused of blowing off yet another legal battle. The 26-year-old artist is close to being hit with a $44k default judgement over an unpaid jewelry bill.
Here’s the latest: Earlier this month, Haimov Jewelers filed docs demanding a default judgement in the amount of $44k due to the rapper blowing off the entire case. They also want him to pay their legal bills for having to file the suit. The judge has yet to rule on the jewelers motion for a default judgement.
Kingston is also in the middle of another legal battle with a New York jeweler named Aqua Master. They sued him earlier this year over a $300k unpaid jewelry bill for two diamond necklaces, a couple gold chains, a ring, bracelet and two watches. The singer even flaunted wearing the jewelry on his social media accounts.
The company explained they were paid with two checks instead of the wire transfer they were promised. However, both of the checks bounced and he never paid the balance.
The singer blew off responding to this lawsuit and earlier this month Aqua Master filed a motion for a default judgement in the amount of $616,381.60 from Kingston and his mother. The judge has yet to grant their motion.
Here’s the backstory: Back in March, Florida-based Haimov Jewelers filed suit against Kingston, accusing him of screwing them out of $44k by refusing to pay despite taking the pieces.
The company said they allowed Kingston to take a Rolex and diamond bracelet from their store, due to his promise he would pay the bill the next day.
The singer traded in a used Rolex for a brand new $59k model leaving a balance of $25,000. The diamond bracelet was offered to him at $19k to purchase or $4k to rent from the store.
He never showed up the next to pay the bill despite numerous demands for the money. They filed suit demanding $44k in damages for the unpaid bill.
Kingston has failed to respond to the lawsuit or show up to court, a pattern he has shown in numerous other legal battles.
