*Singer Sean Kingston was confronted by police in the Dominican Republic last weekend after a misunderstanding with club managers over an $8,771 bar tab.

The artist was partying with friends at Euphoria on Saturday when venue managers told him they would “take care of” him during his stay.

According to TMZ, Kingston thought they meant the drinks were on the house, so he and his crew took advantage by racking up the $8,771 bill before leaving – only for cops to track him down Sunday and threaten to detain him if he didn’t settle up.

The singer, 24, reportedly apologized profusely for the miscommunication and returned to Euphoria to pay what he owed.

Kingston has yet to comment on the incident, but he took to Twitter Monday and expressed thanks for his good fortune, writing, “Today be Thankful and think how Rich You Are. your Family is Priceless, Your Time Is GOLD And Your Health Is Wealth!”
