Tyga has a less-than-stellar record of paying his bills and now the hip-hop star owes an insane amount of money to the U.S. government, and his former relationship with Kylie Jenner may be the crux of the problem.
According to documents recently filed against Tyga by The State of California Franchise Tax Board, the “Rack City” rapper is accused of refusing to pay up on his taxes for the years 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
The grand total of back taxes owed comes to $890,183.57.
If those years sound familiar, it’s because they were the exact years that Tyga first met, courted and eventually dated a young Kylie Jenner.
Kylie and Tyga first met in 2011 when he performed at sister Kendall Jenner‘s 16th birthday party. Yes, Kylie was 14, but her affection for the musician was even highlighted on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
The two became friends, and in 2014 after he had broken things off with Blac Chyna, Tyga started popping up on Kylie’s social media. The two got very close but did not go public with their relationship until she turned 18 in 2015.
Tyga and Kylie were a hot item until the end of 2016 when relationship issues arose and they broke up and got back together several times before she finally called it quits in April 2017.
Since the split with Kylie, he’s had many financial woes, including having two cars repossessed, being hit with a $186,000 judgment and settling a $280,000 debt owed to famed jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills.
So, in conclusion, yes, Tyga may have forgotten to pay his taxes for a few years but clearly he was a little wrapped up in the glitz and glamour of living that Kardashian life.
We’re pretty satisfied with that explanation … but we’re not sure how it will hold up with the I.R.S.
Better pay those bills stat, Tyga.
