Tyga Sues Landlord Who Claims Rapper Owes $70K in Back Rent
The rapper says he paid $200,000 as a down payment to purchase the home in Kylie Jenner's neighborhood
Tyga isn’t happy with a landlord’s claim that he owes back rent (and a lot of it).
In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the rapper’s lawyers say he plunked down $200,000 toward the purchase of the Calabasas home he’s been renting. Tyga, 25, is suing the landlord for breach of contract, saying he has not upheld their agreement for the rapper to obtain the property. The landlord is suing Tyga in a separate suit, claiming the rapper owes $70,000 in unpaid rent.
Tyga’s lawyers say he and the landlord entered into an agreement in September 2014, when the $200,000 was put in escrow as a down payment for the $8 million property.

Tyga’s landlord could not be reached for comment.
