Tyga Sued for Fraud

Rapper Tyga sued by his former business partner for fraud...

From The Blast 

Michael Ray Stevenson, known professionally as Tyga, is being sued by his business advisor Won-G Bruny.
According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Won-G’s company is suing Tyga for breach of contract and promissory fraud.
According to the lawsuit, they entered into an agreement on January 1, 2019. Tyga was supposed to pay $150,000 dollars within the first five business days of the agreement, $150,000 dollars within five business days of November 15, 2019, $100,000 dollars each quarter of 2020, and $100,000 dollars each quarter of 2021.
The contract outlined Won-G’s responsibilities working for Tyga. It stated, “Your title shall be Business Advisor and your services shall be to advise, counsel, and guide Tyga, at Tyga’s request, in connection with his activities in the entertainment industry. You will support and interact with Tyga, and, at his discretion, Tyga’s other employees.”
Bruny alleges that Tyga made two payments of $150,000 each, in 2019. However, Bruny claims that Tyga never made any payments in 2020 or 2021. He’s alleging that Tyga owes him $800,000 dollars, as per their 2019 agreement, exclusive of interest.
Bruny says he was “harmed as a result of [Tyga’s] false promise” and said that his “reliance of [Tyga’s] false promise was a substantial factor in causing [Bruny’s] harm.”
Tyga’s former business partner is requesting a jury trial to award him compensatory damages in an amount according to proof, for costs and expenses incurred to the extent recoverable by law, for the maximum interest permitted under the law, and for “such other and further relief as the Court may deem just and proper.”
