Kylie Jenner and rapper boyfriend Tyga have been cited for wasting water at their Calabasas houses in California as the state grapples with drought, the Hollywood Reporter reported Friday. The couple was accused of violating drought restrictions in June by the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, the report added.
According to the documents obtained by the Hollywood Reporter through the Public Records Act request, 18-year-old Jenner and 25-year-old Tyga were among the few celebrities who were listed as H2O lawbreakers. They both were cited separately. In addition, Jenner has been cited twice, including a fine, for water wastage in her $2.7 million mansion, NBC Los Angeles reported Thursday.
The first citation draws a $100 fine, which increases to $500 after the fourth offense. After five citations, water services of the house owner will be terminated.
Dave Pedersen, general manager of the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District that administers the Calabasas and Hidden Hills areas, said his agency has been patrolling the areas to stop water wastage.
"We have actually reached out to celebrities in our district," Pedersen said. "I have personally written letters to them asking them to take a stand on conservation," he said, according to NBC Los Angeles.
Other celebrity water lawbreakers included “Baywatch” fame David Hasselhoff, record producer Dr. Dre and Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
