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. 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 stole millions more from the singer without telling him. In addition to paying back what he stole, Foster will serve 89 months in prison.
