Police raided a Florida mansion believed to be the residence of Sean Kingston.

The singer, whose legal name is Kisean Anderson, was mentioned in February court documents as living at the residence near Fort Lauderdale.

In February, a company accused him of not paying in full for a huge television and sound system.

A woman believed to be his mother was arrested at the property Thursday morning on charges of fraud and theft.

In a statement to the BBC, the Broward Sheriff’s Office confirmed that it served arrest and search warrants at the property.

“As a result of the investigation, an adult female, Janice Turner, 02/16/1963, was arrested on numerous charges of fraud and theft.

“This investigation is active and ongoing.”

It is unclear whether Mr. Kingston was present at the property during the time of the arrest or if the arrest is related to the company’s allegations.

Kingston appeared to respond to the news on his Instagram account.

“I’m fine and so is my mother,” the singer said in response to reports that the arrested woman was his mother.

“My lawyers are taking care of everything as we speak,” he added.

The BBC has contacted Kingston and her mother, known on Instagram as Mama Kingston, for comment.

Footage obtained by the BBC’s US partner CBS shows several police cars and a large police vehicle near the mansion.

In court documents seen by the BBC, Ver Ver Entertainment claims that Kingston contacted the company via social media in September 2023 to purchase a “232-inch Colossal TV, along with a robust sound system.”

The company claims that Kingston “induced” the company to install the products with “as small a down payment as possible” by making “numerous false representations,” including a suggestion that he would create promotional videos for the company featuring Justin Bieber.

After installation, the company says Kingston failed to make the remaining payments and sued it for breach of contract and fraud.

An attorney representing Ver Ver Entertainment told Miami’s Local 10 that the company hoped to recover it from the home following the police raid.

“We know that our property is inside this house here, so as soon as the raid takes place, we will have a team of people there to put it back together and take it to its rightful owner.”

Kingston, 34, is known for hits like “Beautiful Girls,” “Fire Burning” and “Eenie Meenie” with Justin Bieber.
