Ne-Yo's Business manager sentenced to Prison | Ebonynsweet

AP - Neyo, singer and star of YouTube's Hit series "Step it Up: Highwater" has been handed a victory in court. A New Jersey man who served as his business manager has been sentenced in Ohio to more than seven years in prison for defrauding the R&B singer in a sports beverage scheme.
 
Kevin Foster was convicted last year on 16 counts including wire fraud, money laundering and tax charges.
 
Prosecutors say the Montclair, New Jersey, resident convinced Ne-Yo, whose real name is Shaffer Smith, to invest $2 million in a company called OXYWater, and then invested an additional $1.5 million of Smith's money without his consent.
 
He also defrauded singer Brian McKnight by withdrawing money from his account without authorization.
 
Prosecutors contend Foster spent the money on a personal driver, expensive suits and jewelry, season tickets to the New York Giants and New York Knicks, and Super Bowl tickets.
