Tyga’s scheduled debtors examination related to questions about his alleged unpaid jewelry was cut short on Tuesday, after the rapper was deemed “not well enough to proceed” two hours into the questioning.
Celebrity jeweler Jason Arasheben sued the “Rack City” rapper back in 2013, claiming he owes him an “excess of $270,000” in unpaid jewelry expenses. Tyga appeared at Arasheben’s attorney’s office for the examination on Oct. 18 as planned, but apparently fell ill.
“He wasn’t well enough to proceed about two hours into the examination,” Arasheben’s attorney, Danny Abir of Abir, Cohen, Treyzon and Salo, tells ET.
Abir also says that the 26-year-old rapper did not bring a number of documents that he was required to bring with him, and therefore, must return to finish his examination on Nov. 1. Tyga’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner’s scheduled questioning for the case was also put on hold.
“Kylie Jenner’s examination under oath was pushed back and her attorney agreed to make her available on a 10 day notice if deemed necessary once we are done with him,” Abir says.
Abir told ET last month that he planned to question Tyga about his support of income to maintain his luxurious lifestyle. He also said he planned to question 19-year-old Kylie about the extravagant gifts she’s received from him, such as a diamond promise ring, a $320,000 white Ferrari 482 Italia for her 18th birthday, and a $200,000 black Mercedes Maybach for her 19th birthday in August.
“Our client, Jason of Beverly Hills, has a judgment against [Tyga],” Abir explained. “Until he pays off this judgment, unless he has other means of paying off this obligation and does, his sources of income used to buy these extravagant gifts or to support such a lifestyle should be used to satisfy his obligation. That potentially includes the gifts themselves.”
In May, Kylie slammed reports Tyga owed her money. “Lies lies lies,” she wrote in response to a tweet claiming her beau owed her $2 million.
But Tyga’s jewelry lawsuit isn’t the only legal drama he’s been involved in regarding his finances. Tyga reached a settlement over his delinquent rent in August, after a bench warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to appear in court regarding the unpaid judgement. Tyga’s landlord was granted a $480,000 judgement.
