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.

I'm calling it now, in 6-12 months he'll be filing for bankruptcy or at least foreclosing on his house. Reckless spending is bad, especially when you have no guarantee of your future income.

I am sure those millions of people struggling to pay their bills and survive feel so much better knowing an uneducated retard who's made a fortune off of something most don't consider work gets to keep his luxury car.

Insread of a Maserati, this fatboy should buy a treadmill! He is a young guy and is already morbidly obese! Stop the vacations and eating out every night and get on a diet and exercise program already. His man boobs are worse than Simon Cowell's
