This is the least of Karen's many crimes
Karen King claims that she’s keeping her nose clean after many years of serious controversy and cuffs getting slapped on her wrists. Even though she’s probably making more money than she ever has in her life by being featured as a supporting cast member on the hit show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, she’s getting accused of not making payments on her fancy car. We’ll see what happens to her this time; she has been lucky enough to beat some crazy arrests before.
The addition of Karen King and her sons Scrapp DeLeon and Sas to season five of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta was a shot worth taking. The supporting castmembers are good friends with Stevie J, and they bring a ton of drama and calamity to the show.
Part of Karen’s antics include being a serial criminal, and she shows no signs of stopping her bad ways anytime soon. She first gained notoriety when she appeared on an episode of America’s Most Wanted which told the tale about her possibly hiring her sons to kidnap and murder their own father. She was turned in by an anonymous tipster and arrested in 2013 for aggravated assault with intent to murder, aggravated battery with intent to disfigure, kidnapping, armed robbery, and various drug related charges. In a stunning twist, she was cleared of all the charges.
Throughout 2015 and 2016, she and her sons were making waves on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, but Karen was still busy being a criminal when the cameras were off.
In May 2016, she was arrested for buying $4,946.52 worth of merchandise at Saks Fifth Avenue using someone else’s identity; it’s believed that she conspired with the store clerk. She was charged with financial identity fraud, theft and first degree forgery. She was going to court to defend herself for the fiasco (which could land her in jail for three years) on July 31st, 2017, but that’s not what the court was really concerned about…
In 2014, Karen purchased a beautiful Maserati sports car. At some point, however, she stopped paying on it. After five months of missed payments, the repo man came after her but could never track her or the car down somehow.
They took her to court over the missing funds, and a judge signed a warrant for her arrest in October 2016. She wasn’t found by the people pursuing her until she was forced to go to court over that little identity fraud case. It’s unclear wether she knew about the warrant when she walked in the door a free woman, but she left in shackles and went straight to jail…
