Rapper Tyga has been hit with a warrant for his arrest. This comes after he failed to appear for a court hearing. According to TMZ, Tyga’s troubles started in 2015 when a lawsuit was filed by one of Tyga’s fans, Shyanne Riekena, after a light tower toppled over and struck her on the head during one of the rappers concerts in Michigan. The injured fan was awarded $236 000 (R2.8 million) for her injuries.

However, the Boss Up rapper, who is known for splurging on gifts, has yet to pay the bill. This only made things worse and Shyanne filed more legal documents, with Daily Mail reporting the price was pushed up to more than $250 000 (R3 million).

This is not the first time Tyga has been accused of not paying his debts, hotnewhiphop.com reports. In October last year his former business associate, Chuon Guen Lee, claimed the rapper was hiding around $2 million (R24 million) in shell companies to avoid paying his dues.

Chuon and Tyga worked together on his Last Kings clothing brand, but Tyga apparently ditched the company and opened another line, Egypt Kings, with a new business associate.
