Sean Kingston’s 61-Year-Old Mom Locked Up Over Her Son’s Merchandise Scam: ‘He’s 100 Percent A Scammer’

Sean Kingston’s mother, Janice Turner, was arrested on Thursday, May 23, following a raid on the singer’s home due to a merchandise scam.

Authorities conducted the raid after Kingston failed to complete payments for several high-value items he had received in advance.

According to reports, during the raid, Kingston’s 61-year-old mother was taken into custody on numerous fraud and theft charges. Attorney Dennis Card, representing the plaintiffs suing Kingston, commented on the singer’s fraudulent activities.

“This is what he does all the time. He likes having bling, he likes showing off, he’s a showman,Card told the press. “My client has a $150,000 television sound system that’s in there, there’s also about $1 million worth of watches, and an $80,000 custom bed that was ordered. This is an organized, systematic fraud.”

Card explained that Kingston uses his celebrity status to deceive people.

“He’s got basically a script. He says that he works with Justin Bieber, and he obviously puts on a big show here. This is a rental house; he doesn’t own it. He lures people into releasing things without paying for them, and then he simply never pays,” Card said.

“He’s 100 percent a scammer,” Card continued. “He’s on felony probation right now for trafficking in stolen property. He’s got judgments against him for procuring more than $1 million in watches without paying for them. This is just an ongoing pattern for Sean.”

According to a report by WSVN, both Turner and Sean Kingston appeared in bond court on Friday.

During the court appearance, several conditions were set for Turner’s release. The bond must be fully collateralized and a judge must approve the source of the funds to ensure they were not obtained illegally, under a legal stipulation known as a Nebbia requirement.

This measure is intended to prevent use of criminal proceeds to secure release from custody.

“She doesn’t pose a threat to the community,” said Turner’s attorney. “I believe that the bond as currently stated is a little excessive. I would ask the court to reconsider.”

Turner is facing eight counts of theft and fraud.

Kingston, real name is Kisean Paul Anderson, has since been taken into custody without incident in Fort Irwin, California Thursday evening on an arrest warrant from Broward Sheriff’s Office for numerous fraud and theft charges, authorities said.
