Tyga is in deep financial trouble again! The rapper is now being sued for $150,000 over missed payments on his beloved red Ferrari! HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the lawyers representing the man suing Tyga, and learned just what led to this decision.
“Our client Alex Benedict had agreement in place with Tyga back in September of 2016. Per the agreement, Tyga agreed to return the car on Oct. 9, 2016 and failed to do so,” lawyers Amid Bahadori and Ron Chini from Bahadori Chini LLP told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He went dark and was essentially ignoring our request to get the car back. Eventually we did get the car on Nov. 8.
“The lawsuit is to recover damages resulting from Tyga’s refusal to return the car and other damages. We are seeking at least $150,000,” the lawyers said. “The value of the car is no less than $3,000 per day. My client repeatedly asked Tyga to return the car as agreed, but of course Tyga opted to put his head in the sand.”
Yikes! This is a terrible situation for Tyga to put himself in. The rapper has already had the red Ferrari 488 repossessed twice. In court docs obtained by TMZ, Alex claims that he had struck up a deal with Tyga originally in May 2016. When he missed payments, he had the car repossessed on August 31. And, as Alex’s lawyers said, he managed to get the car back and had it repossessed again.
Of course, this is far from Tyga’s only financial problem. He was taken to court earlier in the year by a former landlord who alleges he owed back rent, and major money for property damage. Prominent Beverly Hills jeweler, Jason Arasheben, also sued Tyga for $100,000 after claiming that the rapper never paid him for diamonds he picked up several years ago.
Tyga ponied up and paid the full amount plus interest to the Jason of Beverly Hills owner on November 25. One debt out of the way, and now he has to deal with this situation.
