Rapper and singer Sean Kingston has been released from custody in Florida and is thanking his fans for the ongoing love and support as the case moves forward. 

The 34-year-old "Beautiful Girls" singer, whose real name is Kisean Paul Anderson, was booked into the Broward County Jail on Sunday. He's facing the following charges, records show:

  • Fraud/organized scheme to defraud (over $50,000)
  • 3 counts of fraud/impersonation/use of ID of another without consent (over $50,000)
  • Fraud/impersonation/use of ID of another without consent (over $5,000)

  • Fraud/insufficient funds check (greater than $150)
  • 2 counts of first-degree grand theft (greater than $100,000)

He has since been released after posting $100,000 bond, TMZ reports. There were several conditions attached to his bond, including surrendering his passport and any guns to officials, according to the news outlet. Kingston reportedly put up his mortgage as collateral. 

He shared a statement on Instagram on Wednesday regarding his release:

"It's great to be home!!! A special thanks to God, my family, my friends and my legal team," Kingston wrote, adding the names of his attorneys. "And I cannot forget about my amazing fans, thank you for all your love and support! I love you guys!"

He agreed to be extradited from California court and turned over to authorities in Florida, the news outlet added. Both Kingston and his mother, 61-year-old Janice Turner, are facing charges in Florida for allegedly committing over $1 million worth of fraud. 

Turner was arrested the same day when SWAT teams raided Kingston's Fort Lauderdale mansion, according to AP. Turner has since bonded out of jail, court records show.
