According to reports, with a warrant issued for his arrest, Tyga faces jail time once he returns from his Turks and Caicos vacation. The attorney representing the rapper’s landlord, Gholamreza Rezai, spoke with People about Tyga’s current legal situation after failing to appear in court on Tuesday.
He revealed, “Yesterday was his day to [appear in court] and he didn’t show up. We requested the court to issue a bench warrant. The court agreed with us that his actions have been not what society demands of him, so they issued a bench warrant. Now, if he comes in contact with law enforcement, they will likely detain him and keep him detained until he posts bond.”
Rezai added, “His history in this case has been that he’s ignoring this obligation and many others. This is not the only judgment that is against him. I think we are the only ones who took it this far, because it’s a large amount. We take our representation very seriously and we will continue to do it until our client is satisfied. Hopefully, now he understands there are repercussions and we will continue to push this matter forward. We will go wherever we have to go to make sure our client is paid.”
Tyga reportedly owes the landlord $480,285.00 in damages for the formerly rented estate.
