Sean Kingston

Fights with Promoter Over Payday ...

Promoter Gets Jacked

6/5/2014 8:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0605-sean-kingston-tmz-01Sean Kingston allegedly orchestrated the beating of a Hollywood club promoter in a dispute over his appearance fee ... TMZ has learned. 

According to our sources, Kingston was contracted to host and perform at Avalon in Hollywood Wednesday night, alongside Carmen Electra and The Jazmin Sisters. We're told Kingston was to be paid $11,000 for the event, and received half up front. 

But our sources say the promoter was upset Kingston didn't hype the gig enough on social media -- and showed up 3 hours late last night. We're told when he did arrive, he had his own security and 4-5 friends ... and immediately started harassing the promoter for the rest of his pay.

When the promoter refused, he tells TMZ Kingston ordered his boys to pin him against a wall ... allegedly jacking his watch, his iPhone and a few grand in cash.

Cops were called to the scene, but no arrests were made. Police confirm the victim told them Kingston orchestrated the attack over money.

According to law enforcement, Kingston is not named as a suspect in the police report. His bodyguards are listed as witnesses ... who denied any involvement. Police say the watch and phone were found later on club premises, but the cash is gone.

Thuggery at it's finest. All should be arrested. Not that anything much would happen, but a little humiliation and expense out of these losers pockets for legal fees would be nice. Sean, you better find a trade or something. This music thing is not working out for you.

Hmm, what would happen if he had a normal job, showed up 3 hours late with some friends and order them to pin his boss against a wall?

I was always taught to show up on time at least, but better to show up in time.

Guys like him give black people a bad name, very sad!

By the way, is this the same Kingston who had that accident with a jet ski?

He'll get more street cured when he is pulled over for a traffic violation and the cops arrest him for finding an unregistered gun and drug paraphernalia in his vehicle.

Why would anyone pay that clown even $11? Makes no sense. Maybe that's what they should pay him, cents.
