Get your s*it together, Tyga.
Los Angeles County judge issued a warrant Tuesday morning for the arrest of the reality star/rapper afterhe failed to show up for aÃÂ hearing in a lawsuit brought by his former landlord. And the lawsuit is clearly his fault- Tyga rented a Malibu mansion and pretty much trashed it and didn’t pay for it, and then broke his lease. Here’s the sitch:
Tyga was scheduled to be questioned under oath about his financial affairs and assets because he has yet to pay a more than $480,000 judgment toÃÂ his former landlord at a Malibu home,ÃÂ according to lawyer Danny Abir. The attorneyÃ¢â¬â¢s firm,ÃÂ Abir, Cohen, Treyzon &ÃÂ Salo LLP, represents the landlord,ÃÂ Gholamreza Rezai.
The interrogation would have likely pried openÃÂ the private businessÃÂ affairs of the 26-year-old Ã¢â¬ÅRack CityÃ¢â¬ÂÃÂ rapper, who has been romantically linked to the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kylie Jenner.
When Tyga did not show up in court, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Nancy L. Newman signed off on the arrest warrant, with bail set atÃÂ $10,000, according to Abir.
The case traces to 2011,ÃÂ whenÃÂ Tyga rented a Malibu mansion overlooking the Pacific Ocean for $16,000 a month, according to court papers. He missed a monthly rental payment before breaking his lease early, court papers allege.
Tyga, whose legal name is Michael Ray Stevenson,ÃÂ left behind a home in need of repairs, according to Boris Treyzon, the landlordÃ¢â¬â¢s attorney.
The master bedroom had been outfitted with a stripperÃ¢â¬â¢s pole andÃÂ the homeÃ¢â¬â¢s intercom system was disconnected. The hardwood floors, gate opener and glass-tiled shower were damaged, according to court papers.
Ã¢â¬ÅHe leased a house that he wanted to use as his primary residence, then he completely trashed it,Ã¢â¬Â Treyzon said. The original lawsuit filed in 2012 that led to the judgment also namedÃÂ Tyga Music.
In March, the judgeÃÂ approved a default judgment totalingÃÂ $480,285, which covers compensation for the alleged vandalism, rent owed and legal fees. The judgment has a 10% yearly interest, Treyzon said.
After TygaÃÂ did not pay, the landlordÃ¢â¬â¢s attorneys sought a debtorÃ¢â¬â¢s examination Ã¢â¬âÃÂ a hearing in which a person has to answer under oath about his property, assets and financial affairs.
To notify the rapper about TuesdayÃ¢â¬â¢s debtorÃ¢â¬â¢sÃÂ hearing, attorneysÃÂ sent a contractor to hisÃÂ July 20 concert in San Diego, whichÃÂ coincidedÃÂ with Comic-Con.
While Tyga was on stage at Fluxx Night Club, the agent served him with the notice to appear in court, Treyzon said. The strategy allowed the agent to sidestep any security workers or friendsÃÂ who might have tried to block access to the rapper.
Ã¢â¬ÅWe got the judgment entered, and now itÃ¢â¬â¢s collection time,Ã¢â¬Â Treyzon said.
