EXCLUSIVE: Sean Kingston – Another Day, Another Blown Off Lawsuit …. This Time Ex-Lawyers Accuse Him of Screwing Them Out of $14k
Sean Kingston might want to look into hiring a new lawyer … because The Dirty can exclusively reveal the rapper is set to be hit with another default judgement for blowing off another lawsuit. This time filed by his former lawyers demanding he cough up the $14k he owes them.
Back in 2015, the Law Offices of James J. Gangitano sued Kingston in Florida Court. They accused him of refusing to pay up on invoices for work they did defending him in separate legal actions. He agreed to pay a $5k retainer and $300 an hour for their services. However, he only made the $5k payment on their $17,500 bill, leaving him with an unpaid balance of $12,500 plus interest.
Following the suit being filed, the law firm reached a deal in March 2016 with Kingston. He agreed to pay $20,000 in installments between April 2016 and January 2017.
They accuse him of failing to make any payments since October 20th and still owes $6,000 pursuant to their deal. Further, the agreement stated if he fails to make the payments, he would be on the hook for a total of $28,500 … but since he paid $14k with installments he now owes $14,500. The firm is demanding the court enter a final judgement of $14,500 against Kingston … due to his repeated breaches of their agreements.
Maybe Soulja Boy can help his landlord Kingston with these legal bills?
