After Tyga (Michael Ray Stevenson) failed to show up in court today (August 9), a judge reportedly issued a bench warrant for the Compton rapper’s arrest, according to a new report by TMZ.
Tyga’s case dates back to 2011 when he rented a Malibu home for $16,000 a month. According to a case filed by the home’s landlord, he failed to pay one month’s rent before breaking the lease early, and leaving the property in a state of disrepair. Court papers claim the floors, a shower and more were left in disrepair, and the master bedroom featured a brand new stripper pole.
To handle the costs, a judge approved a $480,000 judgment against Tyga in March, but he hasn’t paid yet, according to the Los Angeles Times. Tyga was scheduled to appear in court today for a debtor’s examination, but didn’t show up (via TMZ).
The landlord’s attorneys are particularly interested in Tyga’s assets considering he recently gifted his girlfriend Kylie Jenner with an extravagant 19th birthday present—a $200,000 car.
