A business accused Mr. Kingston of not paying the whole cost of a big TV and sound system in a different lawsuit.

According to the corporation, Mr. Kingston “induced” the company to install the devices with “as small a downpayment as possible” by offering “numerous false representations,” one of which was that he would collaborate with Justin Bieber on corporate promotional films.

The business filed a fraud and breach of contract lawsuit against Mr. Kingston after installing the system, claiming he neglected to pay the outstanding balance.
