Kylie Jenner faces questions over Tyga's finances

2016-09-27 05:00

Los Angeles - Kylie Jenner is to be quizzed over Tyga's financial issues.

The 'Rack City' hitmaker is the subject of a $200 000 lawsuit filed by jeweller Jason of Beverly Hills due to an allegedly unpaid purchase of a watch and chain in 2013, and lawyers are requesting both the rapper and his 19-year-old girlfriend are available for questioning on 6 October.

Danny Abir of Abir Cohen Treyzon Salo, LLP, said in a statement: "The examinations will be done separately and the line of questions will have to do with Tyga's finances - including source of funds used for gifts made to Ms. Jenner."

Insiders told E! News that the couple "share funds", while another source claimed the attorneys think the only way they will get Tyga to pay up is by targeting the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.

The source said: "Going after the Kardashians is the only way he'll get what he's owed. Kylie is really upset about it."

If Tyga or Kylie - who has received a huge diamond ring and a number of luxury cars as gifts from the 26-year-old star - fail to show up for questioning, the lawyer said his team will be "asking for the judge to issue a bench warrant."

The news comes a few weeks after Tyga was ordered to pay $186 000 in unpaid rent for a property he "abandoned without notice" in June 2015 and left in ''gross disrepair''.

Two weeks before that, the rapper - who has a three-year-old son, King Cairo, with ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna - reached a settlement in another rent dispute with a different landlord.

It was also claimed earlier this month that his Ferrari had been repossessed, prompting Kylie to splash out on a new Bentley for him. (C) BANG Media International
