E! News reported on Tuesday that a judge has issued a bench warrant for Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson— better known by his stage name, Tyga — after Mr. Nguyen-Stevenson was a no-show in court over a dispute with a landlord regarding back rent and property damage. 

ABC7.com reported Tuesday that the bail attached to the bench warrant is $10,000.

“Attorney’s [sic] for Tyga’s landlord filed court documents, obtained by E! News, that say he agreed to pay $16,000 per month for the plaintiff’s house,” E! News reported, but, “Three months after moving in, Tyga stopped paying rent and the landlord attempted to have the ‘Molly’ rapper evicted.”

“After Tyga moved out, the landlord discovered that he had inflicted major damages on the home, including tearing off the automatic gate opener and damaging bathroom tiles. The cost of the damages is about $480,285, but according to the documents, Tyga hasn’t paid,” the entertainment site explained.

Hollywood gossip site TMZ.com reported Wednesday morning that Mr. Nguyen-Stevenson is vacationing in the Turks and Caicos with girlfriend Kylie Jenner, who celebrates her 19th birthday Wednesday. 

HollywoodLife.com claimed in an exclusive on Tuesday that Ms. Jenner is prepared to pay up on Mr. Nguyen-Stevenson’s financial obligations.

“Kylie’s got stupid money. She’s probably got about half a million tucked in the cushions of her couch. She’s really considering paying Tyga’s debt because she loves him,” an unnamed source close to Ms. Jenner told TMZ. “It’s not about the money. She genuinely wants to help him so that he can focus on his career and not have so much stuff looming over his head.”

“Earlier this year reports claimed Tyga owed his girlfriend $2 million because he had been using her cash flow to fund his personal expenses,” E! News said on Tuesday, a charge Ms. Jenner denounced at the time in a tweet, calling them, “Lies lies lies.”
