Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Karen King was keeping a little too (illegally) real. Known as KK on the reality show, she was arrested in Atlanta on Monday night (May 23) for identity theft.

The cops actually nabbed KK at a Love & Hip Hop event she was schedule to be at. 

Reports TMZ:

Karen was arrested Monday night moments after arriving at an ‘LHHA’ promotional appearance at Level V in Atlanta. Her appearance there had been heavily promoted, so police were ready and waiting to arrest her for the alleged identity theft that went down last year. 

According to docs, King walked into the Saks Fifth Avenue in ATL, and bought $4,946.52 in merchandise under someone else’s name. Cops think she was in cahoots with the employee who rang up the purchase.

According to the arrest record, Karen was booked for financial identity fraud, theft and first degree forgery. 

Yes. It’s 2016 and people are still using the credit card scammers jig.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Consitution, King pretended to be a Diane Wodey when she made the purchases in August 2015. The employee, Armanai Harper, received kickbacks per the police report.

Nevertheless, we gotta hear both sides. Footage of King’s arrest below.
