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.
