Tyga Sued For Allegedly Failing To Pay Injured Concertgoer
Embattled rapper Tyga has found himself in another legal mess after reportedly failing to compensate a women injured at a gig. Shyanne Riekena sued Tyga’s company Tyga Music in 2015 after a light stand fell on her during one of the rap star’s shows in Michigan.
She scored victory last year, when a judge awarded her over $230,000 for head trauma and permanent scarring she endured following the accident.
But almost a year later, the father of one Music bosses haven’t paid up, and now Riekena has filed documents to force the rapper to pay up.
Due to interest, the amount he owes is now over $248,500, according to TMZ.
News of the new legal drama comes hours after Tyga was handcuffed by police officers on Wednesday morning for allegedly driving a vehicle without proper license plates.
The 27-year-old was reportedly leaving the Avenue nightclub in Hollywood in his new custom Mercedes G-Series SUV when he was pulled over by police officers for having paper license plates.
Video footage obtained by TMZ.com shows Tyga, real name Micheal Ray Stevenson, speaking with police officers through the window of the vehicle before voluntarily leaving the car. He was then guided to the police car by an officer and handcuffed before being placed in the rear of the vehicle.
In the state of California, it became illegal to drive without proper plates last year.
He was reportedly taken down to a police station and released 90 minutes later. He left with a citation.
