Can Tyga overcome financial woes from his insane list of legal troubles? Here’s a look at his money situation and current legal situation.
Tyga has been in the news more these days for legal troubles and his Kardashian-romance than he has for his music- which means he very well may be on the road to bankruptcy.
Tyga has been sued so many times recently, in fact, that it’s hard to keep up with it all. Here’s a timeline to make it easier:
Sept. 20, 2013: An underage dancer for one of Tyga’s music videos sues the rapper and his team for using alcohol to coerce her to remove her clothing. Tyga settles with the dancer for $50,000.
June 29, 2015: Tyga agrees to pay a former landlord $80,000 to cover $124,000 in back rent payments.
July 14, 2015: a former business partner of Tyga’s sues him and a new partner for $1.6 million for stealing merchandise and the concept for a clothing line.
July 19, 2015: Tyga is sued by yet another landlord- this time for his Calabasas home that he rented for $25k a month. The landlord claimed in the suit Tyga was two months behind at the time of the suit.
August 3, 2015: A promoter sues Tyga for violating a “radius clause-” he accepted $25k to perform at a gig but agreed to not perform anywhere in the Vegas area for week before or month after the gig. The suit claims he violated contract the night before the show by getting on stage at a nearby venue. The promoter also says Tyga was a no-show for a booked how a year prior. Z Entertainment is suing for $100k.
September 20, 2015: Not a lawsuit, but the state of California came after Tyga for $19,124.98 in shortages on his tax bills over several years.
September 22,2015: “Molly” producer Dez Dynamic sued Tyga for $10,000 in unpaid fees.
November 19, 2015: After not following up with payments to the dancer who he settled with in 2013, a judge ordered Tyga to finish paying the remaining $25,000 he owed her plus an additional $16,000 in legal fees- bringing the total money owed to $41,000.
March 22, 2016: Tyga is sued by a Los Angeles property owner who claims the rapper abandoned the space he was using for his clothing line- but not before trashing the place. The property owner wants $75,000 for the damages.
Add in the fact that Tyga likes to live a lavish lifestyle spending millions on cars and jewelry and it’s a fair assumption that there’s not a whole lot of change left in Tyga’s pocket.
