Sean Kingston kidnapped by jeweler over watch
Time waits for no man and neither does a jeweler who wants the money owed to him.
Police are investigating a dispute between Sean Kingston and a jeweler over a $255,000 watch that led to singer being kinda kidnapped and dumped in the middle of nowhere.
Here’s what Sean says … he bought the watch from a jeweler and made payments to the tune of $185k, but didn’t pay the balance because he felt the watch wasn’t worth any more. The jeweler begged to differ and they had a number of arguments.
Sean told cops he and the jeweler met Tuesday at 1:50 AM at a downtown L.A. parking lot, to make a trade … he’d give the watch back and the jeweler would give him a watch worth a solid $185k. Yes, it sounds weird.
Sean says he got in the back of the jeweler’s car but instead of trading, the jeweler allegedly snatched Sean’s watch away and refused to give him another watch. Sean says he went nuts, demanded the watch back and refused to get out of the car.
Now for the jack move. Sean says the jeweler and his posse locked him in the car and drove away to a secluded area and threw him out of the car. Cops say if true, it’s kidnapping.
On Saturday, Kingston took to his Twitter account to blast Avianne Jewelers for doing shady business and reassured his fans he is now safe and sound.
