The landlord claims the rapper didn’t pay $32,000 he owed in April after moving out of the property after almost a year of renting it.  The landlord also says that Tyga left dents on the flooring of the kitchen, which contributed to $27,650 in repairs, as well as damaging marble floors and counters ($15,575) and walls ($103,160). 

A basketball hoop that damaged the driveway and new locks that destroyed the entrance door were allegedly installed by Tyga, none of which Tyga had permission to install. The landlord is suing for contract violation and demanding damages of over $200,000.
