It’s official! Tyga’s ex-landlord and his attorney finally wore down the rapper and got him to cut a check for a settlement in the $480,000 lawsuit filed against him for not paying rent on his Malibu home. So, is he in the clear with his arrest warrant? We have all the details, right here.
We bet Tyga is breathing a little easier on Aug. 11, because he has finally paid off the massive debt he owes his old landlord for failing to pay his rent on the house he was staying in in Malibu, according to TMZ. Reports that he could be arrested were swirling after a warrant was issued because he skipped out on his court date to go to Turks and Caicos with Kylie Jenner for her 19th birthday.
Though the court-ordered amount was $480,000 for back rent and damages, it’s unclear how much Tyga ended up actually paying when he settled with the landlord. It could be immensely lower or higher. At least the landlord got some money at all. Tyga has been ordered to pay several different people and companies he owes a debt to in the past, and many haven’t seen a penny of it yet.
HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that Tyga’s girlfriend Kylie was considering fronting the money for him so that it would be over and done with, but there’s no word yet on whether she helped pay the settlement or if he came up with it on his own.
So does this mean he’s in the clear and won’t be detained? That’s still unclear. Even though he paid what he owed, he could still be arrested for ditching his court date in the first place. It’s all up to what the judge chooses to do. He could still end up paying for that trip one way or another. TMZ reports that Tyga’s lawyers will go to court Friday and ask the judge to withdraw the warrant since the case is settled. Good luck with that, T!
