Singer Sean Kingston has fallen victim to two overzealous fans after the women accused the star of sexual assault.

The Beautiful Girls hit-maker is alleged to have been involved in an incident at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Seattle, Washington on Sunday night, when he attended a party in a hotel room. The two women, aged 19 and 20, reportedly turned up to the room intoxicated and one of the females claims she later had sex with Kingston. The star left the bash shortly afterwards and went to another suite on the same floor.

The website reports the women followed Kingston into the second ro...

Sean Kingston once turned down a dance date with Rihanna - because he had no freshly pressed clothes.

The Beautiful Girls singer was partying in London at the exclusive Kensington Garden Hotel when he encountered the Bajan beauty, and was thrilled when the Umbrella singer asked him to escort her to nearby club Mahiki.

However, Kingston quickly rebuffed her offer because he hadn't ironed his clothes - and now regrets his lame excuse.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Rihanna asked me to go clubbing with her. Looking back I can't believe I said no just because I didn't have any clothes ...

What would you do if a hit recording artist liked your music and sent you messages on Myspace? If you’re anything like Iyaz, you’d probably think they were fake, delete them, and move on.

Movie Spotlight: 'Notorious'

January 16th, 2009 11:20am EST
In the last few years, biopics, namely music biopics have become a routine. It's only fitting that Notorious becomes this year's first.

Almost twelve years after his death, Christopher Wallace's story gets the big screen treatment. But the journey from story to screen hasn't been easy. Notorious struggled in development and Training Day's Antoine Fuqua was once attached to direct. Many artists, like Sean Kingston, have made it clear that they had an interest in playing Biggie but none of this was proven as fact. Under the guidance of director George Tillman, Jr. the cast and scri...
