Sean Kingston’s Mother Arrested During Raid Of Southwest Ranches Mansion



Rapper Sean Kingston has been facing legal issues for some years now. Today, it’s looking like things are catching up with the singer/rapper.

According to NBC6 South Florida: Sean’s mother was taken into custody during a Thursday morning raid of a Southwest Ranches mansion rented by the singer, officials said.

Broward Sheriff’s deputies and Davie Police SWAT members were seen serving a search warrant at the massive mansion on Southwest 178th Avenue.

Officials later confirmed the singer’s mother, 61-year-old Janice Turner was taken into custody on numerous fraud and theft charges.

According to an attorney, the raid is connected to a lawsuit he filed against Kingston for allegedly not paying for purchased items.

“He likes having bling, he likes showing off, he’s a showman,” attorney Dennis Card said. “My client has a $150,000 television sound system that’s in there, there’s also about $1 million worth of watches that are in there, there’s a $80,000 custom bed that was ordered. This is an organized systematic fraud.”


Kingston, 34, had some major hits including his 2007 debut single “Beautiful Girls.” He’s previously collaborated with stars like Justin Bieber and Soulja Boy.

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

During Thursday’s raid, a line of luxury cars could be seen parked outside the 7-bedroom, 15,000 square foot mansion, which records showed had last sold for $2.25 million in 2021.

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

NBC6 was working to reach out to an attorney for Kingston.


Federal court records showed Turner pled guilty in January 2006 to four counts of filing false loan applications and one count of bank fraud involving $132,000 in stolen funds she was ordered to repay. She was sentenced to sixteen months in prison followed by five years of supervised release.
