Basketball Wives LA star Brittish Williams pleaded guilty to multiple fraud-related charges after being arrested for several counts of fraud. Brittish reportedly pleaded guilty to bank fraud, misuse of social security numbers, wire fraud, and making false statements to the IRS. The reality star's illegal activity reportedly totaled nearly half a million dollars in stolen funds.


The BWLA cast member also allegedly obtained fraudulent business loans from the Covid-19 pandemic, submitted fake billing to insurance companies, and illegally claimed her niece and nephew as dependents. According to The Source, "Brittish received $27,800 in rent relief after falsely claiming she was a California resident with a total household income of less than $50,000 and had reduced work hours. Her work hours were not reduced because of the pandemic, the plea says. Also, her rent was reimbursed by the network that produces Basketball Wives, a TV show that she was featured on."


The Source also mentions that "She submitted nine applications for disaster loans aimed at helping businesses during the pandemic, four applications for the Paycheck Protection Program, and one application for a rent relief program in California. The plea says she used $144,000 in government loans for her personal lifestyle."


She reportedly wore an ankle monitor and was on home confinement following her arrest. According to Yahoo News, Brittish will face sentencing in August. To follow this story and other news, click the link to become a Volume 82 site member.
