It seems that 2019 is beginning to be a rocky road for LA rapper Tyga who reportedly missed a court hearing on Wednesday (March 6) and Subsequently a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.
It’s being reported by the website TMZ that court documents state the “Taste” rapper has yet to make a payment to a concertgoer who was allegedly injured at one of Tyga’s shows over six years ago.
In 2015, Shyanne Riekena sued Tyga’s management company after a stage light came crashing down on her head during a performance, resulting in a four-inch gash on her head. Rickena won a judgment of $235,000. Since 2017, interest has tacked on another $15,000.
Despite the rapper being properly served with an order to appear in court, Tyga failed to show up. The judge is demanding he be put in custody and plans to set his bail at $250,000.
