A celebrity jeweler is claiming Rich the Kid dipped on paying for over $234,000 in jewelry, including a number of watches. As TMZ reports, Peter Marco of Extraordinary Jewels of Beverly Hills filed the lawsuit against the rapper, who he says he has been doing business with since around October 2017.
Among the allegedly unpaid jewelry is multiple Patek Philippe watches, diamond necklaces, crosses, and some bracelets. Marco said Rich made his payments on time at first, but eventually stopped wiring him money. Rich continued to order jewelry, so Marco continued to deliver new pieces. He's suing to receive the money he's owed, although it doesn't appear as though he is seeking any more monetary gain out of this lawsuit.
This is the second lawsuit filed against the rapper so far this year, with his management company Blueprint Artist Management suing him for $3.5 million. In that lawsuit, the company claims Rich shortchanged them out of millions and violated the terms of their contract. Blueprint alleged there's over $3.5 million in owed fees from a 2017 deal they struck with him.
Despite the legal troubles, Rich the Kid still found time to drop a new album in March. His latest full-length effort featured appearances from Lil Baby, DaBaby, Nicki Minaj, Post Malone, Lil Tjay, and Quavo among others.
