Kylie Jenner is now involved in Tyga's financial woes.
A legal team representing celebrity jeweler Jason Arasheben will question the makeup mogul in connection to a $200,000 lawsuit filed by Jason of Beverly Hills against her boyfriend, E! News has learned.
Attorneys filed documents, obtained by E! News, order Jenner and the "Rack City" rapper to be available for examination prior to Oct. 6, 2016. According to TMZ, the six-figure suit stems back to a 2013 unpaid purchase of a watch and chain.
"The examinations will be done separately and the line of questions will have to do with Tyga's finances—including source of funds used for gifts made to Ms. Jenner," Danny Abir of Abir Cohen Treyzon Salo, LLP, said in a statement to E! News.
Multiple sources tell E! News Tyga's financial troubles are in fact true, with another insider telling us the couple "shares funds."
During their relationship, Kylie has received multiple luxury vehicles worth upwards of $240,000 as well as a massive, diamond "promise ring" from Tyga. During New York Fashion Week, the hip hop artist also surprised his lady love with a designer Gucci handbag.
If the couple fails to attend the questioning, Abir says his team will be "asking for the judge to issue a bench warrant."
A source explains to E! News that Kylie's involvement in the case stems from the attorneys' tactic to corner the Kardashian-Jenner clan for payment. "Going after the Kardashian's is the only way he'll get what he's owed. Kylie is really upset about it," the source says.
The latest development in Tyga's legal issues comes soon after he was ordered to cough up $186,000 in unpaid rent. Attorneys for F&S Investment Property filed court documents, obtained by E! News, alleging that Tyga "abandoned the [Los Angeles] premises without notice in June 2015. When the house was inspected, documents allege that the premises was left in "gross disrepair, utility bills unpaid and hazardous environmental waste that required professional clean-up."
Two weeks prior, the rapper and his legal camp were able to reach a settlement with another landlord in a separate $480,285 eviction case.
In early September, the E! reality star gifted Tyga with a Bentley just hours after his Ferrari was reportedly repossessed.
Neither Kylie or Tyga have commented publicly on the legal drama. TMZ was first to report the news.
