According to court documents obtained by the outlet, a bench warrant has been issued for Tyga because he neglected to pay money he owes a concertgoer, who was injured at one of his shows over six years ago, and didn’t show up to a hearing regarding the case.
In addition to the bench warrant, a judge has set his bail at $250,000.
A few years ago, Tyga’s music company was sued by Shyanne Riekena, who won a judgment for sustaining injuries during a concert, when a light stand left a four-inch laceration on the top of her head. Shyanne sued in 2015 and was awarded around $235,000; with interest, that amount grew to about $250,000 in 2017.
A rep for Tyga told Complex, "Tyga was scheduled to appear for a deposition on March 4, 2019, pertaining to a default judgment arising of the State of Michigan in connection with a plaintiff who claimed to suffer an injury while attending a Tyga concert. However, due to a last minute work obligation, Tyga was traveling and was forced to miss the debtor’s exam. The Judge issued the bench warrant for the sole purpose of ensuring Tyga will sit for the next debtor’s exam. This is a civil matter."
Tyga’s been having a few financial issues. Recently, the rapper’s Maybach was repossessed after he had brokered a deal to lease the car for $6,000 a month. But, he fell late on a couple of payments, and the men who leased him the whip repo’d the car. Somehow, the two parties crossed paths at Floyd Mayweather's 42nd birthday party. At the time, Tyga was under the impression that the Maybach was unlawfully repossessed.
