Tyga is known to drive around in high-end luxury vehicles that must cost thousands of dollars, but he appears to be a habitual late-payer.
According to recent reports, the “Sunshine” rapper is returning to court because he has failed to make court-ordered payments for a Lamborghini and a Bentley.
Tyga was ordered to pay $390,000 for the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador and $91,000 for the 2014 Bentley Mulsanne in the original lawsuit, which began in 2016.
He was supposed to pay a total of $481,000, but because he had to pay for both cars, interest increased his debt to $1.3 million, according to Radar.
This isn’t the first time the rapper has struggled to pay for a high-end vehicle. He was sued in 2019 for failing to pay for a Ferrari and a Rolls-Royce that he had purchased.
According to reports, Tyga owed $441,000 for the Ferrari and $84,000 for the Rolls Royce to Midway Rent a Car, Inc, the car company that sold him the high-end vehicles.
Despite his agreement to settle and pay for the vehicles, the Ferrari and Rolls Royce had to be repossessed.
Aside from having issues with vehicle payments, he’s also had issues with paying for other things like furniture and rent.
His former landlord sued him for trashing the rented house and failing to pay rent for over a year.
The “Taste” rapper has a net worth of $7 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, but despite that, he is no stranger to lawsuits over missed payments and even tax issues.
Tyga, born Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, is from Compton, California, and it is unclear whether he came from a poor or wealthy family.
After the release of his debut mixtape in 2007, he rose to prominence and was offered a record deal.
Regardless of what people say about his background and upbringing, Tyga appears to have built his own career from the ground up, dropping hits like “Deuces” and “Do My Dance.”
Tyga has largely withdrawn from the music industry. Although he never officially announced his retirement, he has not released any new material since his seventh studio album “Legendary” was released in 2019.
