Tyga's arrest warrant rescinded
An arrest warrant for rapper Tyga has reportedly been recalled after settling an unpaid rent dispute with his former landlord.
Los Angeles Police Department, L.A. County Sheriffs Department, and U.S. Customs officials were all notified of the hip-hop star's plans to return from Turks & Caicos, where he has been celebrating girlfriend Kylie Jenner's birthday, and they were determined to follow through on an arrest warrant issued after skipping a court hearing on Tuesday (09Aug16).
Tyga was called to court after allegedly failing to comply with a March (16) judgment ordering him to pay his former landlord, Gholamreza Rezai, over $480,000 (£371,700) in unpaid rent, damages, compensation for alleged vandalism, and legal fees.
However, on Thursday (11Aug16), Tyga and his legal team settled the matter "to the mutual satisfaction of all parties," and on Friday (12Aug16), the warrant was rescinded, according to TMZ.com.
The landlord, Gholamreza Rezai, sued originally the star in 2012 after he allegedly broke the terms of a one-year lease on a $16,000 (£12,400)-a-month mansion in Malibu, California.
Court papers suggested Tyga left the property in need of repair after installing a strippers' pole in the master bedroom, damaging the property's hardwood floors, its intercom system, a gate opener, and the glass-tiled shower.
The Rack City star was scheduled to be questioned under oath on Tuesday about his financial affairs and assets after failing to pay out the judgment from the lawsuit filed by Rezai.
The warrant drama emerged a few days after the rapper splashed out $189,000 (£146,330) on a customised Mercedes Maybach for on/off girlfriend Kylie Jenner ahead of her 19th birthday on 10 August.
Kylie posted a video on Snapchat showing off her new wheels as she gushed over the lavish present. "Happy early birthday to me," she said, adding, "Yay! I love you, T."
