Folks, I was just discussing in the IROKO Partners vs. IROKO TV Movies case where IROKO Partners win, partly because the Respondent IROKO TV Movies never bothered showing up after being served. Yet another case to drive home the point is the Sean Kingston case. You get slapped with a lawsuit, get your lawyer and slap back. Hiding or not confronting your problems will not make them go away. You have to turn around and deal with your problems. C’est la vie.
“Sean Kingston just took a BEATING in court over a Miami mansion he allegedly trashed last fall — because TMZ has learned, a judge has ordered him to pay up $77,000 to cover the damage he allegedly caused.
TMZ broke the story … Kingston’s landlord sued him and the singer’s mother — who was also living in the $25,000-a-month home — claiming they broke their lease agreement by moving out two months early … and left a trail of destruction in their wake.
According to the suit, Kingston and his mother caused over $20,000 in damage to the home — broken landscaping lights, sprinkler heads, holes in the wall, and broken railing around the waterfront dock.
Kingston never responded to the lawsuit, so the a judge entered a default judgment against the singer this month — ordering him to pay $77,000 in damages. . .” – TMZ has the full story.
