The singer is wanted by police after he did not show up at a court hearing on January 14 for felony charges of identity theft.

Former "" star Chikezie Eze is wanted by police after a Los Angeles judge issued a warrant for his arrest. Eze, who was sentenced to three years probation for allegedly buying cologne with a phony credit card last year, failed to appear at a court hearing on January 14.

After the no-show, Judge Marsha Revel revoked his probation and issued a warrant for his arrest, reports TMZ.com.

Chikezie Eze got three years probation in August after admitting he tried to use a fake credit card to buy $1,200 worth of cologne at Neiman Marcus. He was arrested in February at the luxury department store in Beverly Hills. He pleaded no contest to felony charges of identity theft.

The 25 year old was a finalist on the seventh season of the hit TV talent show.
