Tyga Ordered To Pay Accountant $16K
Tyga is closing out 2012 with a few legal issues. Days after three video models filed suit against him, the Los Angeles rapper lost in court to his accountant and has been ordered to pay $16,000.
According to TMZ.com, the 23-year-old rapper (real name: Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson) was sued by accountant Robert Seltzer, who claimed he racked up more than $13,000 on his credit card in 2011 and never paid him back.
Seltzer claims he and Tyga struck an oral agreement in 2011, in which Tyga could use his credit card to charge food, hotel, and transportation while touring... and then pay him back at the end of each month.
The problem is, Tyga never paid, so he sued to get his money back, which totaled $13,396, plus interest.
The rapper missed his day in court, so a judge entered a default judgment in Seltzer's favor and ordered Tyga to pay $16,801.67.
TMZ reports that Tyga has paid back some of the money so far.
