Tyga Says TMZ Needs to Stop Fabricating Stories About Him

The Young Money rapper responds to a TMZ story about him owing a lot of back rent.

Published May 4, 2015

Tyga is definitely not the first rapper who has lashed out at TMZ, but his latest Twitter rant seems justifiable.

Over the weekend, TMZ ran a story titled “Tyga: Watch Me Stiff My Landlord!!!,” which uncovered details about him not paying over five years of back rent for a house in Calabasas. The landlord apparently got judgment for nearly $90,000, but that amount grew when Tyga failed to show up to mandatory court date. The landlord is demanding $124,000 (plus interest) that’ll led to a warrant for Tyga’s arrest if he doesn’t pay.

The news made headlines on various outlets, and Tyga wasn’t too happy about it. He went on Twitter and stated:

Stop w all these fabricated @tmz stories. People believe anything they say like real news your not @cnn its not real journalism. If I ever did owe  $ to a house I lived in 6 years ago, why sue me 6yrs later.smh.lies. People will sue u for anything when u get famous. Stop being lazy get up off ya a** and  go make ya own. All these freeloaders w they hands out. F**k outta here. @ the End of the day all these sites get paid every time u click. It's all ad revenue.They'll put anything in a headline to get that click.

Whether TMZ or Tyga is telling the truth is up for debate, but at least he had the nerve to call the gossip site out.
