R&B star Sean Kingston was confronted by police in the Dominican Republic at the weekend (01-02Mar14) after a misunderstanding with club bosses over an $8,771 (£5,482) bar tab.

The Beautiful Girls hitmaker was partying with friends at Euphoria on Saturday (01Mar14), when venue managers told the star they would "take care of" him during his stay at the club.

According to Tmz.com, Kingston thought the welcome message meant he was being given complimentary drinks for his group all night, and they took advantage of the offer by racking up a hefty bill before leaving - only for cops to track him down on Sunday (02Mar14) and threaten to detain him if he failed to pay up.

The singer, 24, reportedly apologised profusely for the miscommunication and returned to Euphoria to settle the debt.

Kingston has yet to comment on the incident, but he took to Twitter.com on Monday (03Mar14) and expressed his thanks for his good fortune, writing, "Today be Thankful and think how Rich You Are. your Family is Priceless, Your Time Is GOLD And Your Health Is Wealth!"
