Tyga Is Being Sued Over His Clothing Line
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is headquartered at the J. Edgar Hoover building on Washington, DC's Pennsylvania Ave, just a handful of blocks from the White House. Named for the Bureau's controversial first Director--and Leo DiCaprio muse--it's a monolithic office complex, all function, no flash. Security around Hoover is understandably tight, so we're left to speculate as to its inner workings. But if the blog circuit is to be believed, phone banks are flooded, computer screens are going haywire, memos are being sprinted down narrow hallways. All in the name of keeping Tyga safe. The Compton rapper, who recently appealed to the Bureau to help him in the wake of his leaked nudes and rumors of an affair with a transgender porn star, is up to his neck in more legal trouble. According to TMZ, a former business partner in Tyga's first clothing line, Last Kings, feels the rapper did hold up the promotional ends of their agreement. The plaintiff, Chuon Guen Lee, also alleges that the name of the new line Tyga's started, Egypt Kings, is too similar. She's seeking $1.6 million in restitution, plus damages.
As for the "Rack City" star's career on the mic, there's a bit of trouble there as well. His latest LP, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty was dropped unceremoniously online, leaving many to speculate about his standing with the always tumultuous Cash Money/Young Money empire. Sources close to the situation suggest it was a move that the label's founder and CEO, Bryan "Baby" Williams, had yet to sign off on.
