Tyga Facing Arrest Warrant Over Failure To Pay Damages

Tyga is reportedly facing an arrest warrant over his failure to pay $250,000 in compensation to a fan injured at one of his concerts.
The “Rack City” rapper’s company Tyga Music, LLC, was ordered by a judge to pay damages of $236,000 to Shyanne Riekena in 2016, after she sustained head trauma and back injuries at a concert in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

According to reports, a bench warrant has been issued for Tyga’s arrest due to his failure to show up in court to agree a plan to pay a sum that has increased to more than $250,000 with interest.
Shyanne sued the 28-year-old star in 2015, claiming she was left with a four-inch gash on her head and back injuries when a light stand fell on her at a gig held at The Intersection venue in 2012.
“I know that Tyga has a lot going on right now with other people but my situation happened five years ago so on the list of priority wise I should be taken care of,” Shyanne Riekena said. “This was a big incident, it caused a lot of chaos in my life and it’s been five years, so he needs to take this serious.”
The judgment is one of a string of financial claims made against Tyga, real name Michael Ray Stevenson.
Last March he was ordered to pay $65,000 after failing to appear at a gig and in 2016 he had to settle a $200,000 jewelry debt.
He has also been accused of failing to pay car lease debts and falling behind on child support payments to Blac Chyna, the mother of his five-year-old son King Cairo.
