Tyga’s Lamborghini To Be Repossessed, Sued For $450,000
Tyga is being sued by a car loan company in Arizona that wants to repossess his Lamborghini, and alleges the rapper owes it close to $450,000 in back payments. In documents filed in Maricopa County Court in Phoenix, Choice Motor Credit is going after Tyga, claiming he owes $357,250 for a Lamborghini Aventador the lender helped him buy, as well as $91,150 for a 2014 Bentley Mulsanne the company has already repossessed. Tyga has not commented on his latest lawsuit.
According to its suit, Choice Motor Credit (CMC) says it financed Tyga’s purchase of a Lamborghini in June 2013, with a plan that called for the rapper to make payments of $11,520.10 a month for seven years (for a total of $967,688.40). The car loan company says in its filing that while Tyga made some payments, he has fallen very far behind and “ignored CMC’s demands” for payment. Now, alleges Choice Motor Credit, Tyga owes $357,350.77 for the Lamborghini, which it is seeking to repossess.
But that’s not all of his car problems. The car loan company says it also helped Tyga buy a 2014 Bentley Mulsanne in March 2015. That financing plan had Tyga paying $5,966.95 for 73 months (for a total of $435,587.35). He allegedly fell so quickly behind with his payments on the Bentley that Choice Motor Credit repossessed it in February. “CMC sold the Bentley in order to mitigate its damages, but the sale resulted in a deficiency balance of $91,152.67,” reads lawsuit by the car loan company, which wants that money paid back, too.
Gossip Cop has reached out to Tyga’s rep about the newly filed lawsuit in which Choice Motor Credit has sought possession of the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador, plus the money he owes for it and the outstanding balance on the Bentley, but we have yet to hear back. This is hardly the first time Tyga has been accused of not paying up. As Gossip Cop has previously reported, the rapper has been in several legal battles with landlords for owing tens of thousands of dollars for the homes he’s rented. And last month, Tyga was sued by the landlord who rented him space for his Egypt Last Kings Clothing store in Los Angeles for five months of unpaid rent and more than $75,000 worth of damage to the property.
