Karina Seabrook’s Dad Worked with Sammy the Bull
Karina Seabrook’s dad is called David Seabrook.
In a 2013 interview with radio station Hot 97, David admitted that he owned a percentage of a pool company alongside Sammy the Bull and others.
However, that’s not all they were doing.
According to David, he also dabbled with some sort of illegal side hustle that Sammy wasn’t aware of.
David and Karen were Engaged
According to David, Karen first approached him back in 1996 inside New York club China Club, which is now permanently closed.
Sparks flew and they eventually got engaged.
However, they never married after David was caught with a long prison sentence alongside Karen’s dad, Sammy the Bull, when the pair were caught selling over 20,000 ecstasy pills.
David did Nearly 20 Years!
David’s crime involvement meant that he ended up spending 18 years in prison.
According to the New York Post, he was one of 36 people that were busted in 14 simultaneous raids on February 25th, 2000.
David was 32 at the same time.
Karen and David Split When Karina was 10 Years Old
