Chuon Guen Lee, a former business associate of Tyga’s, is looking for over $2 million from the rapper after winning a lawsuit against him last year, TMZ reports. Tyga was ordered to pay Lee $1.9 million after she successfully sued him for leaving their Last Kings clothing company to start a new venture called Egypt Kings with a new partner, as well as allegedly breaking other promises related to the business. That was last year, and the payment has now increased to $2,148,411. Lee claims she hasn’t been able to track Tyga down to pay it.
The newly filed request to the courts from Lee means that Tyga could be visited by a sherriff’s deput regarding the payment — if the court signs off on it that is.
In April, it was reported that Tyga still owed an injured fan $235,000 from an old lawsuit. Audience member Shyanne Riekena sued Tyga’s company following an accident in which a light stand fell on her head at his concert in Grand Rapids, MI. Due to the head trauma and permanent scarring she reportedly suffered, a judge ordered that Tyga pay her $235,000, which later became $248,553 with interest.
On the other side of things, Tyga claimed in a recent Breakfast Club interview that he is owed $12 million from his former label Cash Money. However, he said he had no plans to sue for the money, as he feels it’s only right to let Lil Wayne figure out his issues with the label first. “I’m in a position to where I just want Wayne to get what he’s owed,” he said. However, a source from Birdman’s side felt Tyga’s claims were unfounded, telling TMZ “What person says they won’t sue if they’re owed $12 million?”
Amidst the legal drama in his life, Tyga released a new project called Bitch I’m The Shit 2 in July. “I think I’m just creating my own sound now.” he told HNHH of his approach to the project. “From sampling other records that I was inspired by, and telling more of a story and painting a picture of the lifestyle.”
