The raid on Kingston's Florida property ensued after Ver Ver Entertainment filed a lawsuit in February against Kingston, alleging non-payment for items purchased from them.

The complaint states that Kingston made several false claims to the company, including an ongoing collaboration with singer Justin Bieber.

According to the company, judgments were previously made against Kingston in 2015, 2016, and 2022, totaling over $1 million for unpaid luxury items, including watches and jewelry.

Attorney Dennis Card disclosed, "I filed a lawsuit against Sean Kingston." 

He revealed "A detective in Broward County read my lawsuit and contacted me, and so we went down and gave, with my client, a recorded statement and an affidavit". 

Card mentioned they had been anticipating the raid for more than two months.
