Kylie Jenner to be quizzed over Tyga gifts
Kylie Jenner has reportedly agreed to be questioned by lawyers pursuing her boyfriend Tyga over an alleged $208,330 (£159,352) unpaid debt to a jeweller.
During the American reality TV star's on-off 18-month relationship with the Rack City rapper he has lavished her with gifts, including a $189,000 (£144,600) Mercedes-Benz Maybach car bought as a birthday present last month (Aug16).
Even as he has splashed the cash on Kylie, the musician, real name Micheal Ray Stevenson, has been pursued for debts that have allegedly gone unpaid.
Staff at the Jason of Beverly Hills jewellery store have hired lawyers in a bid to compel the 26-year-old to pay the $208,330 (£159,352) they claim he still owes them.
According to editors at TMZ.com, documents show Kylie has agreed to be quizzed by the shop's legal team about her boyfriend's finances and the gifts she has received from him during their relationship.
The lawyers are reportedly set to meet both Kylie and Tyga in the next two weeks, and will request a judge issue a warrant for their arrest if they do not turn up for the meetings.
Attorneys Danny Abir and Boris Treyzon are the same legal team who successfully pursued a similar strategy in getting Tyga to settle a dispute over $480,000 (£371,700) in unpaid rent, damages, compensation for alleged vandalism, and legal fees with a former landlord last month.
Tyga's jewellery debt dates back to January 2014, when a judge ordered Tyga to pay up for not returning a diamond Cuban link chain he borrowed in 2012, and for failing to pay for a diamond pantheon watch.
The rapper was also recently ordered to pay bosses at F&S Investment Properties $186,276 (£141,150) after they accused him of breaking their rental agreement relating to the office space he used to launch his Egypt Kings fashion label.
He recently received a professional boost however, when Kylie's brother-in-law Kanye West announced he was signing him to his G.O.O.D. record label.
