Bad news for Love and Hip Hop: Atanta fans. Karen King was arrested for identity fraud, forgery and theft, according to NY Daily News. 

Police confirmed that the arrest is related to a 2015 embezzlement incident in Atlanta — where King and two another suspects (both employees at Saks Fifth Avenue) bought almost $5,000 worth of merchandise at the department store using a stolen credit card. Reportedly, one of the employees  admitted to police he "knowingly rang sales that were being paid for with fraudulent credit cards and receive (sic) kickbacks."


This isn't King's first run-in with the law. Prior to appearing on the reality show, she was featured on the crime show America’s Most Wanted in 2012 for allegedly beating her ex-boyfriend, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. King was jailed in 2013 on charges of aggravated assault, kidnapping, armed robbery and other offenses.
