Tyga is in trouble. The rapper is now being questioned by celebrity jeweler Jason Arasheben in court over how much money he has spent on his girlfriend Kylie Jenner from “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
In the hearing held Tuesday morning, Tyga was assessed if he has enough money to justify a purchase of a fancy chain and timepiece worth $200k, according to TMZ.
Tyga was reportedly accommodating during the hearing and told Arasheben’s lawyer Boris Treyzon about his income and what he owns. But when the lawyer started asking about the lavish gifts Tyga gave Jenner, the rapper “started feeling extremely ill, lost memory and became confused, telling the lawyer he just couldn't go on.”
Over the past few years, Tyga gave Jenner a number of expensive gifts such as the $320,000 white Ferrari 482 Italia for her 18th birthday and a $200,000 black Mercedes Maybach for her 19th birthday this year. He also gifted her with a snakeskin Gucci handbag and a diamond promise ring, among many other things.
ET has reported that Tyga owes Arasheben an “excess of $270,000” in unpaid jewelry. Another one of Arasheben’s attorneys, Danny Abir, earlier said that they want both Tyga and Jenner to go under oath and discuss their lavish lifestyles.
“Our client, Jason of Beverly Hills, has a judgment against [Tyga]. Until he pays off this judgment, unless he has other means of paying off this obligation and does, his sources of income used to buy these extravagant gifts or to support such a lifestyle should be used to satisfy his obligation,” Abir explained. “That potentially includes the gifts themselves.”
As for Jenner, she isn’t stingy with the gifts she’s buying for her boyfriend as well. Just recently, Us Weekly said that the lip kit mogul gifted Tyga with a Bentley Bentayga that retails for $229,100.
