Celebrity jeweller JACOB ARABOV - whose watches have decorated the wrists of Sean Combs, Justin Timberlake, 50 Cent and Madonna - has been released from U.S. federal prison to a halfway house.
The Jacob & Co. founder, known among his celebrity clients as Jacob the Jeweler, was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in jail in 2008, for falsifying records and giving false statements to investigators probing a U.S. drug ring.
According to the New York Post, Arabov, 44, was transferred on 25 March (10) and is scheduled for full release in September (10).
