*Singer Sean Kingston of “Beautiful Girls” fame says he was held against his will by a jeweler because he stopped making payments on a watch.
According to TMZ, Kingston says he purchased a $225,000 watch from a Los Angeles jeweler, but stopped making payments at $185,000 because he felt that’s all the piece was worth.
In the middle of the night on Tuesday, Kingston met with the unidentified jeweler in a Los Angeles parking lot and agreed to give the watch back, as long as he received another piece worth $185,000 in exchange, according to TMZ.
However, Kingston alleges the jeweler snatched the watch from him as soon as he entered the vehicle. An argument ensued, reportedly prompting the jeweler to lock the doors and drive Kingston to a secluded location, where he claims he was then thrown out.
Kingston has reported the incident to LAPD, who are currently investigating the case, according to TMZ.
