Judge Issues Arrest Warrant For Tyga After He Fails To Appear In Court

A judge issued an arrest warrant for Tyga on Tuesday (Aug 9) after he failed to appear in court over an unpaid $480,000 judgement, reports in the US claim.

Tyga, 26, was supposed to appear at a Santa Monica court to answer questions about his finances after he reportedly fell behind on the rent payments for his former Malibu home – and hasn’t paid off the debt yet.

According to TMZ, the landlord’s lawyers expressed their client’s disgruntlement over recent reports that the Rack City rapper had bought his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, a $200,000 Maybach Mercedes for her 19th birthday.

The landlord’s legal team reportedly went on to claim that Tyga’s purchase of the luxury vehicle is “a fraudulent transfer of assets that should go to satisfy the judgement.”

Subsequently, the judge in the case issued a bench warrant, which means that the he could face jail time – and with Kylie’s birthday today (Aug 10), it could turn out to be really unfortunate timing.

Red flags were raised when the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posted a series of SnapChat videos, sharing her reaction to the extravagant gift, earlier this week.

She wrote on Instagram: “Thank you baby,” alongside a photo of a custom Maybach with a large red bow attached to the windshield.

A month prior, Tyga reportedly signed a lease on a 12,800-square-foot Bel Air mansion – and according to Entertainment Tonight, the luxury abode costs $46,500 a month to rent.

This is not the first time that Tyga has suffered financial woes, with another former landlord previously claiming that the rapper owed five-figures worth of unpaid rent.

Back in February, Tyga was evicted from a $4.8 million Hollywood Hills mansion he had been renting since December for $17,000 a month, which forced him to move into Kylie’s Calabasas retreat.

Aside from his real estate debts, TMZ reported in April that Tyga owed $357,000 in car payments for his 2013 Lamborghini Aventador, which the rapper denied.

However, Choice Motor Credit – a company that provides classic car loans – were forced to repossess the rapper’s 2014 Bentley Mulsanne in February, and are still expecting $91,000.
