Sean Kingston, the crooner behind the 2007 hit “Beautiful Girls,” is in hot water with the law again.

According to an arrest warrant obtained by Rolling Stone, the singer faces ten charges in Broward County, Florida.

Kingston was nabbed in California on May 23, just hours after police raided his Florida home and took his mother into custody.

The Allegations Against Sean Kingston

The charges read like a shopping list from a heist movie.

Kingston and his mother, Janice Turner, are accused of defrauding multiple businesses, including a jeweler and a car dealer.

The list of allegedly stolen goods includes a Cadillac Escalade, $480,000 worth of jewelry, and a custom bed valued at a jaw-dropping $86,568.33.

Clearly, this wasn’t your average five-finger discount.

The police report also details Sean Kingston’s other alleged escapades, including defrauding banks and writing bad checks.

One check, in particular, bounced higher than his music career, clocking in at nearly $45,000.

Adding to his woes, Sean is accused of violating probation for a previous charge of trafficking stolen property.

This isn’t his first rodeo with legal troubles—he’s previously been sued over a $1 million unpaid jewelry bill.

“This evening, police in Fort Irwin, Calif., arrested Kisean Anderson, aka Sean Kingston, without incident on a Broward Sheriff’s Office arrest warrant for numerous fraud and theft charges,” the Broward Sheriff’s Office stated at the time of Kingston’s arrest.

Kingston’s attorney, Bob Rosenblatt, quickly chimed in, telling NBC News, “We were in the process of having him return to Florida after his show. We want him back asap so we can show this is merely a civil case and not criminal. We look forward to challenging this case in court.”

Not to be outdone, Kingston’s mother, Janice Turner, is facing her own set of legal troubles.

She’s hit with eight charges herself.

Mama Kingston’s rap sheet includes a guilty plea back in 2006 to four counts of filing false loan applications and one count of bank fraud involving $132,000 in stolen funds.

She’s also tangled in a civil lawsuit seeking $100,000 in unpaid rent for a different home than the one that was raided.

It seems like the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

What’s Next?

With Sean Kingston waiving extradition, the stage is set for a legal showdown in Florida.

Rosenblatt and Kingston’s legal team are gearing up to argue that this is all just a big misunderstanding, a civil matter being blown out of proportion.

Whether the court will buy that argument remains to be seen.

Sean’s career, already marred by previous lawsuits and controversies, faces another uphill battle.

Will he be able to shake off these charges and get back to making music, or is this the final chorus for the “Beautiful Girls” singer?

Stay tuned for more updates on this unfolding drama.
