Sean Kingston Faces $1 Million Default Judgment in Watch Purchase Dispute

Published:

Jamaican rapper Sean Kingston finds himself in hot water after failing to respond to a lawsuit filed by a Malaysian jeweler accusing him of not fulfilling a substantial bill for two high-end watches. As a result, Kingston is now at risk of a substantial default judgment that could amount to $1 million.

The lawsuit, filed by the high-end watch company, Dream Watch, claims that Sean Kingston reached out to them in 2022, expressing interest in purchasing two luxury timepieces: a Richard Mille Model RM 65.01 Automatic and a Patek Philippe Calibre. Kingston allegedly agreed to pay $534,000 for the Richard Mille watch and an additional $378,000 for the Patek Philippe.

A representative from Dream Watch flew from Malaysia to Kingston’s Los Angeles residence with the intention of selling and delivering the watches for the agreed-upon purchase price of $912,000. According to the lawsuit, Kingston inspected the watches, expressed satisfaction, and took possession of them. He was supposed to send the full payment via a wire transfer.

However, complications arose when Kingston’s initial wire transfer attempt was flagged by his bank due to the large overseas transfer. Subsequently, he claimed his account was frozen due to the initial wire attempt, among other excuses, which persisted for over three months. Kingston eventually stopped responding to Dream Watch entirely, and the agreed-upon funds were never sent, despite his continued possession of the watches.

Kingston then promised that his mother would transfer the money, but both attempts failed. In addition to the initial $912,000, Dream Watch alleges that Kingston owes them an additional $4,000, which they had supposedly loaned him after the failed transaction.

With Sean Kingston failing to appear in court to address the lawsuit, Dream Watch is now seeking a default judgment of $1 million. They argue that Kingston’s actions were done with knowledge and willful disregard for their rights. As of now, the judge has not yet made a ruling on the matter.
