Tyga Owes Former Business Partner $2.1 Million
Tyga is still on the hook for money he is owed to his former business partner, Chuon Guen Lee. But now the total has increased to over $2 million.
As previously reported, T. Rawww was sued back in 2015 by Lee over his first clothing line, Last Kings. She alleged the rapper did hold up the promotional ends of their agreement. She also alleges that the name of the new line Tyga started, Egypt Kings, is too similar. She was seeking $1.6 million in restitution, plus damages. The rapper lost the suit and was forced pay up.
Fast forward two years later and Tyga still has not settled his debt. According to TMZ, Lee recently filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court seeking a judge's assistance in getting the her bread, which has now increase to $2,148,411.
If the request is granted, Tyga could be in even more trouble, with sheriff deputies getting involved.
The "Feel Me" rapper should have some extra money to blow as he is now acting on the new MTV series, Scream. XXL recently talked with Tyga about venturing onto the small screen. “The acting thing is something I always wanted to do,” he said. “I think just the timing wasn’t always right because it was like I’m so focused on getting the music to where it needs to be and then, you know, I felt like once I got that in play everything else would just fall in place. So now that that’s there, I feel like, you know, I’m starting to take on more acting stuff.”
Tyga just dropped his most recent project, Bitch I'm the Shit 2, which features Kanye West, Young Thug and more.
