Karen King, one of the stars of the popular Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta television series, is facing several charges after her arrest in May. King faces three federal charges of fraud after a $5,000 shopping spree at Saks Fifth Avenue in the city.

TMZ reports:

“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Karen King is staring down some serious prison time for allegedly going on a shopping spree … with someone else’s identity.

King was arrested in May after cops say she strolled into Saks Fifth Ave in ATL and racked up a $5k bill on dresses, perfumes, shoes and other accessories. The D.A. just hit her with 3 felony charges — one for financial identity fraud, and two for credit card fraud.

Each carries a sentence of at least a year behind bars if she’s convicted.

The outlet has video footage of King’s arrest, and in TMZ’s original report it was suggested that King knew the employee who cashed out the thousands in goods.

No comment has come forth from King or her legal team.

And why is there always boatloads of struggle for folks on the #LHHATL cast?
