Tyga's former business partner seeking full accounting in lawsuit non-payment

Rapper Tyga has been accused of hiding his earnings in other companies in a bid to avoid settling his $1.9 million debt to his former business partner.

Chuon Guen Lee sued the hip-hop star in 2015 after accusing the Rack City hitmaker, real name Michael Nguyen-Stevenson, of reneging on an agreement to promote their Last Kings clothing line and secure a distribution deal with popular California-based retail company Tilly's.

Lee also accused Tyga of taking merchandise worth more than $500,000 when their partnership fell through, and then setting up a rival company, named Egypt Kings.

The plaintiff won the bid for damages last year (16), but Tyga has still yet to hand over the funds, prompting Lee to ask a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge to help enforce the judgment in August (17), claiming she is having trouble tracking him down.

Lee has since filed new papers in court, alleging the 27-year-old MC is doing his best to hide his incoming funds in various other companies, which she estimates to be pulling in around $450,000 a month, according to TMZ.com.

Lee wants Tyga to submit a full accounting of his revenue streams, and block any funds from being transferred to those other company accounts.
