Tyga Sued Over $128K Owed On Broken Auto Leases

By on March 7, 2019 in ArticlesCelebrity News

At Floyd Mayweather's recent birthday party, rapper Tyga ran into a sort of embarrassing issue involving a lease he'd signed for a Maybach before falling behind on the $6,000 monthly payments. In January, the car was repossessed, and TMZ reports that Tyga got into an argument with "several men" from whom he leased the car, which he believed was repossessed unlawfully. A fight broke out and he was ejected from the party, and now he's being sued over almost $130,000 he owes on two other cars.

Those would be a 2012 Ferrari 458 Spider and a 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost, leased by the rapper back in 2016, both of which have also been repossessed just like the Maybach. According to a lawsuit filed by Midway Rent-A-Car, Tyga owes nearly $44,000 on the Ferrari and another $84,000 on the Rolls-Royce. Together, the total comes to $127,789.73, and they say Tyga has failed to square his account despite multiple attempts by the company to get him to pay – so they decided to resort to litigation.

As fans of the rapper are probably aware, this is far from being the first financial conflict Tyga has found himself in. In 2015, he was sued by his Last Kings clothing line co-founder over his alleged failure to adequately support and promote the brand. In 2016, he was sued by his landlord for back rent, and a few months after that he was actually evicted for falling behind the rent on another rented mansion in the Hollywood Hills. The following year, he was sued for failing to pay a $2 million lawsuit settlement. And as if to prove he can file lawsuits too if he wants, in 2018 he filed suit against his former record label Cash Money Records and its sub-label Young Money Entertainment over unpaid royalties he said he was owed. So when you look at this most recent lawsuit, it's all part of what's become something of a trend for Tyga.
