Last year, the former manager for R&B singers Brian McKnight and Ne-Yo was found guilty on 16 counts of defrauding them both out of millions of dollars. Kevin R. Foster has been sentenced to seven years in prison and ordered to pay $7.8 million in restitution to the victims.
Foster convinced McKnight and Ne-Yo to invest in a water company but failed to notify them that he was the CEO and CFO of the company. Then he used the money to support his lavish lifestyle.
Foster also allegedly took out a $2 million loan in Ne-Yo’s name without his knowledge and withdrew money from Brian's account without permission.
