Tyga is one of the most popular celebrities on the planet and there’s no arguing that. The “Temperature” singer has a loyal fanbase and continues to be the talk of town for reasons whatsoever.
The California native is one again making headlines, this time for allegedly committing fraud and breach of contract. According to Radar Online, Tyga has been sued by his former business partner, Won-G Bruny, for failing to pay $1 million for services allegedly rendered from 2019 to 2021.
The lawsuit claims that, on January 1, 2019, Tyga and Bruny agreed to a contract in which the Taste and Freaky Deaky rapper would pay Bruny more than $1 million dollars over a three-year period made up of a $150,000 payment within five days of the agreement, $150,000 within five days of November 15, 2019, $100,000 for each quarter of 2020 and another $100,000 for each quarter of 2021.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the contract laid out the “at will” guidelines of their agreement.
“You shall be engaged by the Company for the period commencing on January 1, 2019 (the ‘Effective Date’) and ending on December 31, 2021, subject to any applicable extension or early termination of this Agreement by you or the Company (‘Term’).
“Unless you and Company otherwise agree in writing, a continuation of your engagement with the Company beyond the expiration of the Term shall be deemed ‘at-will’ and shall not be deemed to extend any of the provisions of this Agreement.”
Tyga has a history of dealing with lawsuits. Most recently, the rapper was sued by Vans for allegedly stealing their sneaker designs as part of his collaboration with MSCHF to release a new sneaker called “Wavy Baby.”
