Sean Kingston

Saves Maserati

with Last Minute Payment

4/21/2012 6:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sean Kingston is keeping the Maserati he leases at his house in Florida
Sean Kingston nearly had his Maserati repossessed for failing to make payments -- but after the leasing company filed a lawsuit, Kingston came through with the cash.

According to court docs filed in Florida, Kingston and his sister signed a lease in 2008 on a 2006 Maserati Quattroporte. The leasing company claims Kingston and his sister fell behind on their payments and stopped paying altogether last November. 

The company claimed Kingston and his sister defaulted on the lease and owed $3,503 in back payments, plus the balance of the lease ... an additional $29,323.00.

According to the lawsuit, Kingston and his sister held onto the car despite requests to turn it over, saying the pair "concealed" it at their home in Sunrise, FL.

But the lawsuit got Kingston's attention and he made good on the payments. The leasing company dropped their lawsuit yesterday.

He just did a concert in my area at a junior college for a small town radio station. So he's obviously hurting for money.

I don't know who this man is, other then some one on here once called him a one hit wonder. Plus I read thae article awhile back about him on jet skis. I have a few customers, that I'm going to have to take legal action against that remind me of this clown. One of my customers looks like that guy in the picture down one that's loosing his house. Could be his twin brother. Calls himself Skip.

Dear Sean: Here's an idea, why not buy a brand new customized Ford Explorer, customized to suit you. And with the difference perhaps you and your family can think of something constructive to do with the difference in money amount that you save. What? You don't think we will think you are cool? Guess what we think of you now?

Whoever he lent the cash off to save face is going to come and hunt him down next. Lets hope the "one hit wonder" royalties are good enough to buy him a hot dog and coke each day moving forward.
