Sean Kingston - Sean Kingston Settles Rape Lawsuit

R&B star Sean Kingston has avoided a court showdown with a woman who accused him of raping her in a hotel room.

The Beautiful Girls hitmaker, his bodyguard and another member of his team were hit with a lawsuit from the alleged victim, who claimed the men attacked her at a party in Kingston's suite at a hotel in Seattle, Washington, in July 2010.

The case was due to reach a court in November (13) but the 23-year-old singer has managed to swerve a civil trial after both sides agreed to settle.

According to Tmz.com, Kingston paid her "only a fraction" of the $5 million (£3.3 million) she was demanding in her lawsuit, but terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.

A source tells the website, "Her story wasn't consistent. She told various stories throughout her interviews with police... The medical report had no indications of force."

Kingston was previously cleared of any wrongdoing after cops ruled the woman was not a credible witness and there was doubt over her version of events.

While terrible, this rape is nothing compared to Amway, they have been responsible for raping people for a LONG time, at least as far back as this October 4, 1976 rape: http://stoptheamwaytoolscam.wordpress.com/new-news-and-old-news/ Amway also financially rapes people, read the rest of the same blog for the details.
