Sean Kingston’s mother arrested after raid at his house

SOUTHWEST RANCHES, FL – Sean Kingston’s mother, Janice Turner, was arrested Thursday in a raid at the rapper’s South Florida home.

Deputies from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, along with Davie Police SWAT members, executed search warrants at Kingston’s Southwest Ranches mansion on May 23, according to Public Information Officer Carey Codd. The nature of Kingston’s involvement, if any, in the investigation remains unclear, and it is not known if he was present during the raid.

Turner was taken into custody on multiple fraud and theft charges following an investigation initiated in Dania Beach, Codd said in a statement. The operation involved detectives from the Broward Sheriff’s Office Dania Beach District and members of the Strategic Investigations Unit.

The investigation is ongoing, with authorities continuing to gather evidence and details. Representatives for Kingston have yet to comment on the situation.

Sean Kingston, whose real name is Kisean Paul Anderson, rose to fame in 2007 with his debut single, “Beautiful Girls.” Since then, he has collaborated with artists like Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and Nicki Minaj. He also served as the opening act for Gwen Stefani’s The Sweet Escape Tour and performed on select dates of Beyoncé’s The Beyoncé Experience tour in 2007.

In 2011, Kingston was involved in a severe jet skiing accident in Miami, which resulted in a broken jaw, a fractured wrist, and water in his lungs, leading to a three-week hospital stay. Following a three-month investigation, authorities concluded that Kingston lacked basic boating safety knowledge.
