This dude just keeps getting better and better (at making fun of).
JUST on the the heels of Tyga settling his $480,000 lawsuit with his former landlord, jeweler Jason Arasheben of Jason of Beverly Hills now hopes to collect some money the rapper has owed him since 2012. And it’s not a coincidence he’s hired the same lawyers as the landlord lawsuit- dude actually wants to see the money owed to him, and clearly they can get the job done.
The Beverly Hills jeweler claims Tyga (whose birth name is Michael Ray Stevenson) agreed to drop $28,275 for the jeweler’s diamond pantheon watch in August 2012, and that the rapper also borrowed and never returned a $63,000 diamond Cuban link chain in December of the same year.
When Arasheben first filed suit in 2013, he tried to collect $185,306.50 in costs and late fees. The total rose again in January 2014, when court papers obtained by PEOPLE show a judge entered a default judgment against Tyga, ordering him to pay $208,334.47. Tyga’s rep told TMZ at the time that the situation was “all a misunderstanding.”
However, the judgment has yet to be paid and more fees have accrued since, bringing the new total “in excess of $270,000” in damages, interest and attorney fees, Arasheben’s attorney Danny Abir tells PEOPLE.
“In the meantime, Mr. Stevenson gives away cars, jewelry and cash,” Abir adds. “We will question his source of funds – ‘Where’s the money, what are you spending it on, what are your assets, will you be able to pay up for all of this?’
All good questions, Abir. Questions that I don’t think ANYONE really knows the answer to.
