Love & Hip-Hop Miami star/the founding member of the popular R&B group Pretty Ricky, Baby Blue, turned himself in for PPP fraud. His 20-month sentence begins on February 7. 

He’ll be serving his bid in the Coleman, Florida federal prison. He asked fans to write him, and he’ll reply.

Blue was ordered to pay over $2 million in forfeiture and restitution. Last year, he was arrested over charges stemming from a COVID-19 scam. In May, he pled guilty and admitted to using falsified documents and false information to obtain a PPP loan of $426,717. He also received another check for $708,065 by using falsified documents and inaccurate information. He claimed the loans would be used for LLC and Blue Star Records LLC.  

All Hip Hop points out, according to the Justice System, Baby Blue also confessed he used the funds to live the lavish life, making extravagant purchases, like a Ferrari (which was seized when he was arrested).
