Miami rapper Sean Kingston has been ordered to pay a former landlord $77,856.71 for nearly destroying her Miami Beach rental then walking away from the lease.
Miami-Dade County court records show Kingston never responded to the lawsuit and was even fired by his lawyer!
The default judgment papers show the singer of Back 2 Life and Party All Night, whose real name is Kesean Anderson, his mom Janice Turner and his management company, Eyes Above Water, will also lose their $25,000-security deposit on the waterfront home.
Landlord Catherine Arrizhi, who owns with her husband Anthony the Miami Beach restaurant Oceans Ten, reported in a lawsuit filed in May that not only did Kingston walk away with $50,000 worth of rent owed, he also left the place with broken showers and dock railings, holes in walls and messed up landscaping.
Kingston’s excuse was that he moved out because the mansion was near the spot where he nearly died in a jet-ski accident last year.
Meanwhile, good luck to the Arrizhis in their quest for the dough.
The IRS has been trying to recoup $512,708 from Kingston in unpaid taxes for two years, according to court records!
