Sean Kingston Loses Gig Over Rape Settlement


Last week Sean Kingston settled a civil lawsuit filed by a woman who claims Sean and two members from his entourage gang raped her in a hotel room back in 2010 [click here if you missed that].

Sean just lost a big gig because of it...

According to TMZ the University of Western Ontario canceled Sean Kingston's September 7th appearance for orientation week saying, "Having Mr. Kingston perform could cloud the values surrounding O-Week," adding the school has "zero tolerance for sexual assault."

Why would he settle a 5 ml dollar law suite outside court? He is young and this will taint him forever. He shoulda used that money to clear his name. Oh wait, enough evidence to convict you Sean?

Good for this manatee. There had to be some truth to it. The girl wanted $5 million. I dont know what the settlement was but the fact that he paid and chose Twitter and not a courtroom to defend himself is very suspect.

The University of Western Ontario is a "big gig?" LOL, ok Snitch.

Good this fat fuck shouldn't have any endorsements. I don't give a fuck about those nasty, thirsty, brain dead groupies following these low level succubus, theirs lack of respect and thinking the can run trains, rape and beat groupies without suffering any conquenses is disgusting. While I blame the women even giving these pathetic creatures the time of day. I am not cosiging the violent rapist in the wack ass rap and entertainment industries.

@10:13, he wouldn't have been convicted because she took him to civil court hence the settlement part. As of today I have yet to see any criminal charges against him. Lastly, the burden of proof more lenient in civil court than it is in crimin court so he could have lost on basis of negligence, his party his duty to protect, etc

On the flip, I'm sad for our education, when our folks can't take contextual clues to differentiate between court systems. As if this country doesn't already have a fucked legal system for black folks we exacerbate the issue even more by not knowing the fundamentals.

Sean is truly an idiot, if you didn't do it then why settle it? Even R. Kelly to his shit to trial and that nigga was on tape doing. Now you and your crew are going to forever be looked at as some rapists.

Anonymous said...

smh, 11:32, another poster that doesn't know the difference between civil and criminal court. RKelly was acquitted, meaning that he was found not guilty of criminal charges. A settlement is a civil matter...smh. Why??!! And these posters have the never to state their opinion on erroneous understandings with such conviction.

GOOD! Thats what his stupid fat ass get, whether he did it or not. If you're innocent, why settle. Thats some serious shit, and if you did nothing wrong, you should be ready to fight.

This means he will have one less day to worry about regarding that BIG tour that was going to keep him too busy to go to trial. There is no tour big enough to keep anyone busy enough not to fight to clear your name and false accusations! Dude had 1 maybe 2 hits (in the pass). . .how big could the tour really be???

Anonymous said...

@11:42 with your wannabe smart ass, since you have reading comprehension problems, I am going to break it down for you. The point that I was making is a) Sean is an idiot b) he should have fought for his innocence instead of just writing a check since he proclaim that she was lying c)rape is a serious accusation, why don't fight it out where it is in civil or criminal court. So shut the fuck up you illiterate, bitch and fuck your comeback.

he put something in her drink. she did not consent. rappers always do this.

Anonymous said...

1:15 that sounds plausible. If so he needs to be locked up. However it would be hard to prosecute him for this in criminal court due to the evidence that is needed. So that's why civil charges were filed. He was advised to settle because his lawyers didn't want the evidence and circumstances seeing the light of day. It is an admission of guilt.

Anonymous said...

bwahaha at your feeble attempt to call me illiterate when you're just all around ignorant. @12:18, it's better to leave well enough alone than to remove all doubt... because the thing is, civil court is NOT the place to prove your innocence. Case in point: OJ Simpson was acquitted of murder BUT was still found liable in civil court hence the judgment him for the Brown family.

Now, it behooves you to #fuckmycomeback as any response will only further display your stupity!!!

Anonymous said...

I agree with the other posters. He should have used that 5mil to pay for his defense...unless as 1:44 says.

It seems that folks come on here and think others don't know the difference between civil and criminal.

Everyone else knew what they were saying, but some pompous, "educated", ass came on here trying to put down others. Displayed stupidity. LOL

And if the posters on here make people so sad for education why hang out here and attempt to teach. Seems like some contextual clues were overlooked.

1:51...Civil court IS a place to prove innocence. People dont just win judgements because they ask. There is still the process of proving one's side to keep from having to pay or to receive the amount you're asking for.

And I think you meant 'stupidity'.

Anonymous said...

@2:45, no its not. The burden of proof is different. In civil court the burden of proof is a preponderance of evidence where in criminal it is beyond a reasonable doubt.

As I previously stated OJ Simpson was found innocent of murder in criminal court but despite this fact he was still found liable for Nicole Simpson's death in civil court hence the judgment for the Brown family. One has to ask. How is that possible? Did it matter that he was found innocent in criminal proceedings? No, because it comes down to the differences between the burden of proof in one court system vs the other.

BTW, I think we all know what I meant. Let's not harp on typographical errors.

For anyone interested in understanding the differences between proving your case in civil court vs criminal court and why losing a civil case doesn't automatically translate to guilt here is a nice little article that sums it up:

What fucking difference does arguing about the court venue make....ON SUBJECT who really gives a fuck about this fat ass big poppa knockoff looking ass nigga...So what?Probably was cancelled because of lack if ticket sales/interest...And if his fat ass did have the unmitigated gall to try to take some pussy then GOOD now his mediocre career is done and he can sit around and eat twinkies all day and fade to fucking BLACK.....#notalenthavinghog

3:02...I know the difference. It's just not true that civil court isnt a place to prove innocence or guilt. It is. If a civil case is brought against you, you show up to argue your case to prove why you shouldnt pay whatever is being asked of you. I think you just neglected the fact that most of us know there are no criminal implications in civil cases. The main point being made is if he was really innocent he would have shown up to keep from having to pay the girl. Because he didn't though, he made himself look guilty.

@4:23, my first two post were specifically directed two other posters as evidenced by the "@." One was based off the use of the word "convict" which is not applicable in civil trial and the other was at comparing a case that was trialed in criminal court vs one that would have gone to trial in civil court.

I am not arguing the merit of this particular case but I am dismayed that the rudimentaries of the legal system is not taught in highschool especially since its our community that seems to get the shit end of the stick when it comes to legal proceedings. One of the attributes in higher conviction rates against blacks (when compared to the white counterparts) is our ignorance of the law along with poor representation.

But back to this case, because the burden of proof is diminished in civil court, legal experts will tell you that winning a civil trial DOES NOT equate guilt because you only have to prove by a small margin of even 1% that your claim is MORE LIKELY than the other. For example (hyperbolic): you are being sued for damages to another drivers car. You were in the area around the time the accident accord, the other driver noticed that your car has damages that coincide with the dames sustained to their vehicle. Those damaged to your car ate two years old but you don't have proof because (make up reason, you never filed a claim etc) but the other driver is convinced that you were the person that hit their car so they sue you. And win. Why? Because the other driver was able to prove that their version of the story was more likely than yours. Where in criminal proceedings this evidence would be considered circumstantial at best and would not muster because the other driver would need more to prove his case like witnesses who saw you hit the car, etc.

Again, that was an oversimplified scenery but I just wanted to demonstrate the difference between the burden of proof in one case vs the other.

WTF?? said...

She did try to convict him when it first happened, but the cops said there wasn't enough evidence. Probably because this FAT FUCKER and his ghouls used condoms. But the hospital that saw her, said her trauma was consistent with rape.

PIECE OF RAT SHIT did it! He can't get pussy unless he rapes somebody.

She had no choice but to try and get him in civil court. GOOD FOR HER! for being brave enough to do so. Cos you know they tried to scare her so she wouldn't call the police.

He needs to be CASTRATED, with his nasty fat gut and sweaty dick cheese smellin balls. His tiny career should be over.
