Young Thug is claiming he shouldn't have to pay back the $2.2 million he owes on a Georgia mansion because he says the real estate developer conspired to sell him a mansion that was falling apart.
Thug was sued last year by Heritage Select Homes, which claims that the rapper didn't make a giant $2.2 million payment on the home that was due in March of 2017. The original price of the mansion was $2.475 million, but Thug made a few small payments before the big payment was due.
The 6-bedroom, 11-bathroom 11,000 sq. ft. mansion includes a theater room, four-car garage, indoor pool, walk out balconies/patios and a full bar.
In his response, Thug claims that Heritage knew the home had a series of flaws but failed to disclose them. Among the problems, he claims foundation damage, roof problems that led to damaging leaks, and mold in the basement below the indoor pool.
Thug also accuses Heritage of conspiring with his real estate agent to hire a real estate inspection firm for a sham inspection that would fail to reveal the problems in the home.
He claims shortly after moving in, he became aware of the defects in the home and hired another home inspector who found many issues.
Thug says he shouldn't have to pay up and wants the lawsuit dismissed. He's also filed a counterclaim of his own, alleging fraud and seeking unspecified damages.
The case is ongoing.
