Rapper Sean Kingston, whose real name is Kisean Anderson, and his mother, Janice Turner, were arrested on Thursday, May 23, on multiple fraud and theft charges based on a warrant from Florida. The arrests took place following a raid at the rapper’s rented South Florida residence earlier in the day. Kingston, who once collaborated with Justin Bieber, allegedly failed to complete payments to Ver Ver Entertainment for a $150,000 entertainment system that included a massive 232-inch television.

The complaint, per People, claims that Kingston convinced the company to accept lower down payments in favor of the rapper producing promotional videos for the company featuring the Baby singer. Needless to say, Kingston’s promise never fructified.
