Young Joc is being sued by a jeweler claiming the rapper failed to pay for a diamond bracelet purchased six years ago. 

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Aydin & Co filed the suit in Fulton County Superior Court Monday, stating that Joc agreed to spend $17,500 on a diamond bracelet and ring in August of 2009. The jeweler says Joc, whose birth name is Jasiel Robinson, never actually paid the bill “despite repeated demands.”


His alleged debt has been outstanding for so long that the jeweler wants just under $80,000 to cover interest, attorney fees, and court costs, states the suit. 

Joc, a father of eight, currently stars on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta and is reportedly worth millions
