Ne-Yo is receiving some payback against his former manager who bilked the singer out of millions of dollars, and now a judge has ordered the man to pay back the singer $6 million.
Kevin Foster, the former business manager for Ne-Yo and Brian McKnight, has been ordered to pay restitution for his financial crimes. The judge awarded Ne-Yo a total of $6,456,250 and McKnight will be paid $151,675.
The restitution was awarded after Foster was convicted in New Jersey of various crimes including wire fraud and money laundering.
Foster was accused of getting Ne-Yo to invest millions in a sports drink company under “false pretenses,” and then took millions more from the singer without telling him.
Earlier this month, Kevin Foster was sentenced to 89 months in prison in the case.
