Tyga Issued Warrant For Arrest
A $10,000 bench warrant has been issued by a judge for the arrest of rapper Tyga.
The 26-year old was a no-show at a Santa Monica courtroom, where he was scheduled to appear.
Michael Ray Stevenson, better known to audiences as Tyga, failed to pay a $480,000 judgement against him. The judgment was for damage at a Malibu home he had rented in 2011.
Tyga missed a $16,000 monthly payment and broke the lease, according to court documents.
After the owners took back possession of the home, they found damage and alterations to the home that had not been approved – including a dance pole in the middle of the master bedroom and damaged glass tiles in both of the master bathroom’s showers.
Tyga, refused to pay this and had claimed he was in poverty.
The property owner’s attorney brought up the recent purchase of a $200,000 Mercedes-Maybach sedan that he purchased for his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner as a gift for her birthday.
Attorney for the plaintiff, Boris Treyzon said “What we’re asking for is any asset that’s transferred since July 20, when this has been served. The law allows us to take possession, to use it to satisfy any outstanding judgments….To the extent the car was onetime owned by Mr. Stevenson, it has been transferred for no payment. We will ask for the car to be returned and turned over to our client.”
