R&B singer Sean Kingston is making some less-than-pleasant headlines heading into Labor Day Weekend with reports claiming he forced a teenager to have sex with him three years ago.
According to reports, Kingston and his bodyguard have been named in a gang rape lawsuit.
Sean Kingston and his bodyguard gang raped a drunk teenager in the singer’s hotel room back in 2010, according to a new lawsuit — but Sean says it’s B.S. Carissa Capeloto — now 22 — claims she was forced to have sex with Sean, his bodyguard and a member of Sean’s band at a Seattle hotel in July, 2010, after she had smoked pot and downed 7-10 shots of vodka. Capeloto — who has sued all 3 men — alleges she’d been invited to Kingston’s hotel room for a meet-and-greet following a Bieber concert — where Kingston had also performed — but when she showed up … Kingston was waiting naked on his bed. Capeloto claims the bodyguard picked her up and placed her on top of Kingston, and all three of the men proceeded to gang rape her while she was “obviously intoxicated, incapable of consent.” (TMZ)
With a trial slated for November, the female victim reportedly wants at least $5 million for damages.
Capeloto says her friend later entered the room and rescued her. The police were called and Capeloto was taken to the hospital where she says she was treated for physical injuries consistent with rape. She says her life has been ruined … she can barely sleep, has mood swings and panic attacks. Capeloto wants $5 mil minimum. BTW … criminal charges against Kingston were dropped in 2010 after cops concluded Capeloto wasn’t credible enough for a legit case. Kingston has filed legal docs insisting the sex was 100% consensual. Trial is set for November. (TMZ)
In fall 2011, Kingston and video vixen Maliah Michel were romantically involved with one another.
Pop singer Sean Kingston is confirming rumors that he’s dating Canadian rapper Drake’s ex-girlfriend. The rumors started on Sunday night after Kingston walked the rep carpet at the American Music Awards with Maliah, an urban magazine model. Shortly after their outing, Kingston was slammed by bloggers for dating Drake’s “sloppy seconds,” but Kingston had this response on Twitter: “Sloppy seconds? Not that at all … she is a great woman with a great heart that deserves the best in life.” Way to stay classy, Kingston. Maliah also retweeted her beau’s message to her followers confirming that they are indeed an item. (RumorFix)
A year after the alleged gang rape went down, Kingston nearly lost his life following a nasty jet ski crash.
“I’m doing good. I’m feeling great. I’m excited. I’m happy,” he said during the special. “A lot of people don’t know it was a deeper situation. I had open heart surgery and I had two other surgeries; it was a life-or-death situation…They were gonna send me home, but then I had felt a pain in my left chest, and I told my mom. They rushed me and they did a lot of scans on me, [and] they said I couldn’t leave.” (“MTV First: Sean Kingston”)
