Tyga’s money issues are piling up.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, the 28-year-old rapper was recently hit with a six-figure judgment over after he failed to make payments on a 2014 Land Rover. Tyga reportedly leased the vehicle from a company called Midway HFCA, which accused the rapper of defaulting on contractual payments.
The suit states Tyga agreed to pay $3,998 over 36 months with the option to eventually purchase; however, the “Taste” artist allegedly stopped paying his bill after he abandoned the vehicle at a repair shop called Final Touch Collision. He reportedly owed nearly $23,000 at the time the suit was filed.
Midway sought $202,739 in damages because Tyga neglected to return the luxury SUV. Though it was a pretty hefty sum, the rapper didn’t seem too worried about the suit, as he failed to show up in court to fight the case. In June, a judge sided with Midway by issuing a default judgment of $141,000 in damages, plus interest and legal fees. Which means Tyga is now on the hook for $157,152.60.
Unfortunately for the West Coast native, this isn’t the first lawsuit he’s had to face in recent months. Back in March, Simon Cowell’s ex-fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy sued Tyga for unpaid rent on a Beverly Hills Mansion. And back in June, Tyga was slapped with a $1,482,000 lawsuit for allegedly skipping out on an Abu Dhabi performance.
Though we're not sure what's going on with Tyga, it's clear his money management skills are lacking.
