”Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Karen King was hit with three felony charges in connection with her alleged shopping spree on someone else’s credit card.
King was arrested in May after she spent $5,000 on dresses, perfumes, shoes and other accessories at a Saks Fifth Ave. in Atlanta — using someone else’s identity, the police allege.
According to TMZ, the D.A. just hit her with three 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.

Karen “KK” King, most known for her role on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta has been arrested for alleged theft and fraud.
TMZ reports that King, 55, was making a heavily promoted appearance at Level V nightclub in Atlanta on Monday when she was apprehended and charged with theft, financial identity fraud and forgery.
A police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal Constitution states that King entered the Atlanta Saks Fifth Avenue location in August 2015 where she reportedly purchased $4,946.52 worth of merchandise under someone else’s name. Police officers suspected King was working with an employee on the scam, who allegedly received kickbacks on purchases.
It’s not the first time King’s been in handcuffs. WPTV reports that after appearing on “America’s Most Wanted,” King was arrested in 2013 for aggravated assault with intent to murder, aggravated battery with intent to disfigure, kidnapping, armed robbery and various drug-related charges stemming from an alleged kidnapping and beatdown of her ex, Lyndon Baines Smith.
The charges were later dropped.
