Tyga settles last of jewellery debt as he faces new lawsuit
Rapper Tyga is paid in full in his lawsuit settlement over a long-running jewellery debt.
Bosses at the Jason of Beverly Hills jewellery store hired lawyers earlier this year (16) in a bid to compel the 26-year-old hip-hop star to pay the $208,330 (£167,000) they claim he owes, after a judge ordered him to pay up in 2014.
The outstanding invoice related to a diamond Cuban link chain and a diamond pantheon watch he borrowed in 2012, but failed to return.
The Rack City hitmaker, real name Micheal Ray Stevenson, was forced to sit for a deposition in the case in October (16), when he was quizzed about his earnings and spending habits, and his girlfriend Kylie Jenner was also due to testify about the various extravagant gifts she had been given by her man.
Tyga saved the reality star from the hassle after recently agreeing to settle the matter with two hefty payments.
His lawyer appeared in court on 1 November (16) to reveal the rapper had already handed over $100,000 (£80,270), plus interest, to the owners of Jason of Beverly Hills, while the balance was due to be paid by 17 November (16).
According to TMZ.com, Tyga made good on his promise before the deadline, putting the dispute behind him once and for all.
However, his legal woes are far from over - last week (ends18Nov16), Tyga was served with another lawsuit as he arrived at Penthouse nightclub in West Hollywood on 18 November (16) to celebrate his 27th birthday.
In video footage obtained by TMZ.com, the process server can be seen approaching Tyga and handing him the papers as he makes his way from his car to the club entrance. The hip-hop star's security guards promptly pushed the court official away, but not before the rapper was served.
Details about the new lawsuit have yet to be released.
