British R&B star Estelle's cousin is facing allegations of kidnap and blackmail.

The American Boy hitmaker's relative, Jude Lebaga, has been charged alongside two other men after a 58-year-old male was bundled into the back of a car in London last month (Sep12).

The victim later managed to escape in nearby Essex, England.

Lebaga has been remanded in custody alongside two other suspects and is set to appear before Snaresbrook Crown Court in the U.K. capital in December (12).
