Cops to Sean Kingston

Eenie Meenie Miney Mo ...

Pay Your Bar Tab, Or We Can't Let You Go

Sean Kingston
might be used to getting freebies -- but TMZ has learned, he had to answer to cops in the Dominican Republic this weekend after allegedly skipping out on an $8K bar tab.

The singer was with friends Saturday at a place called Euphoria -- and sources at the club tell us, there was a miscommunication between Sean and the managers. We're told the managers promised to "take care of" Sean and Sean thought that meant comping his drinks -- not so.

We're told Sean had a great time -- drinking, smoking hookah -- and ran up a bill of $8,771 ... before leaving the club without paying a dime.

According to sources, the club quickly called Dominican police -- who eventually tracked Sean down on Sunday ... insisting he had to pay the bill, or he wouldn't be able to leave the country.

When he realized the mistake, we're told Sean was VERY apologetic -- and returned to the club to ante up in full.

This guy is alway's having some problem, he IS the problem you have the money, pay your bills, and who run's up an 8,000.00 dollar tab for drinks and food. It's ostentatious.

Sean Kingston would have to work on his laptop for 129 hours at $68 per hour to pay his bar tab.

Not sure who he is. Diddy? Daddy?? Who ever. But even if you thought the drinks and smoke was on the house would you really walk out leaving nothing after going thru 8k???? What a delusional hog!

" When he realized the mistake, we're told Sean was VERY apologetic -- and returned to the club to ante up in full." at least he owned up to it and paid his tab but this story will still receive racist comments people just read a few lines and then comment

im guessing they wont be having sean kingston back anytime soon.

nightclub people are the worst s*** on the earth. they basically made him think he was comped the whole night so he wouldn't pay attention to anything.

then they sell him $50 champagne for $1800 a bottle.

nightclub people are true ****s

It seemed like a misunderstanding. He paid the debt no biggie.
