Tyga Is Facing Legal Trouble in Las Vegas
Like so many Sin City visitors before him, Tyga is facing Vegas-related money woes, but the trouble isn't over gambling — it's basically because he performed too much.
According to TMZ, a Las Vegas promoter is seeking damages from the rapper, saying he violated what's called a "radius clause" in a booking agreement. For those of you who need a refresher on your live performance legal agreements, a radius clause is a common non-compete clause in which an artist agrees to refrain from performing at another venue in the area — such as a different festival or nightclub — within the weeks before and after a concert they're booked for.
Legal papers state that the "Ayo" rapper was allegedly contracted by Z Entertainment to perform last summer at the Hard Rock Hotel's Body English nightclub (which has since closed). The promoter claims Tyga sullied that agreement by jumping onstage at another venue in Vegas the night before that concert, thus inherently cheapening the value of his subsequent Body English club date.
What's more, the promoter said Tyga failed to show up for a scheduled performance in Santa Monica last November, and they're seeking $100,000 in damages overall.
It's not the only legal entanglement Kylie Jenner's boyfriend is facing at the moment, as the NY Daily News reports that he was recently slapped with a suit for non-payment of rent for a Calabasas, Calif. home. He was ordered to pay $80,000 in back rent to another Calabasas landlord this past June.
