Tyga Sued for Allegedly Stealing $91K Worth of Jewelry

California jeweler claims "Rack City" rapper abused his loan.

Published September 4, 2013

Tyga is in hot water with a Beverly Hills jeweler. Reportedly, the Young Money rap star snatched up over $91,000 worth of jewelry but never paid for it, and now the company is suing to get the money.

Jason of Beverly Hills, whose clientele includes Beyoncé, Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey, asserts that Tyga didn't pay for a $28,275 diamond pantheon watch last August, and in December borrowed and never returned a $63,000 Cuban link chain. 

JBH wants $185,306.50, more than double the worth of the jewelry, to cover the two pieces, and late fees. 

At 23, Tyga (birth name Michael Stevenson) doesn't seem to be hurting for money. The YMCMB rapper is worth a reported $2 million, and purchased a $6.5 million estate last summer. 

His rep did not respond to BET.com's request for comment regarding the suit.
