The Dirty can exclusively reveal Sean Kingston has blown off yet another lawsuit … this one involving a jeweler accusing him of never returning to pay for $44k worth of pieces he took and now a judge has slapped the rapper with a $314k default judgement in the case.
Florida-based Haimov Jewelers sued the rapper accusing him of screwing them out of $44k by refusing to pay for items they loaned him. 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.
Kingston 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 and despite numerous demand he blew off the jeweler.
They sued demanding $44k+ in damages for the unpaid bill. Kingston – famous for blowing off lawsuits – blew off another one and it’s going to cost him. The judge granted the jewelers motion for a default judgement in the amount of $314,138.22. He states that the rapper was properly served with legal papers and never responded.
The judgement is higher than the original $44k number due to the judge tacking on retroactive interest to the damages!
