As Tyga eagerly awaits Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday on August 10, he’s reportedly embroiled in a lawsuit with a woman who claims he subjected her to sexual battery.
According to court documents nabbed by Radar Online, Tyga offered to pay her $50,000 to keep quiet, but has so far only paid half.
Model Allison Brown filed suit against Tyga, his record label, and other related defendants in September 2013, claiming he “coerced young and impressionable under-age women to pose nude” at the L.A. video shoot for his song, “Make It Nasty.” The suit was settled at a hearing in December 2014, and while the terms of the settlement were sealed at the time, they have been revealed in new court documents obtained by Radar.
According to the documents, Tyga offered to pay her $50,000 to drop all claims against him. Per terms of the agreement, the payment was supposed to be sent via wire transfer within 20 days of the document being signed. The document was signed on January 26, 2015, but Williams did not receive any payment until February 2, when Tyga’s attorney emailed her lawyer and wrote “$25,000 payment has been wired today to your firm’s trust account and you will receive it tomorrow. I am working on obtaining information regarding the remaining $25,000.”
So far, Brown claims, she has not received the rest of the money. She asked the court to force him to pay up, and there is a hearing today, June 29 about the matter.
In her initial complaint, Brown claimed she was “invited to the location of a music video — a large mansion in the Hollywood Hills — where she, and a group of similarly situated women [were] served unlimited amounts of alcohol…”
“After hours of being encouraged to drink (without verification of the victim’s age) the victim is summoned to the room where the scene is filmed. After one or two takes, the director and the crew members (i.e. camera operators) encourage the victim to remove her clothing. Still under the influence of alcohol, the victim is successfully pressured to remove her clothing contingent on the promise that her intimate areas (i.e., nipples) will be ‘edited out,’” the complaint states.
“Defendant Tyga, shirtless, was the centerpiece of the scene, where girls were asked to dance in a sexually suggestive manner on and around him while Tyga’s song ‘Make It Nasty’ was played as background music and Ms. Brown was told to dance with the music,” according to the complaint.
Brown sought damages against “Young Money Entertainment, LLC; Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson aka ‘Tyga’; Cash Money Records, Inc. and Tyga Music LLC” for “sexual battery, misappropriation of likeness, invasion of privacy, fraud and deceit, negligent misrepresentation, unfair business practices, intentional infliction of emotional distress.”
