Atlanta, GA – Lil Yachty has been accused of skipping out on a $233,000 bill for some bling.
According to Bossip, Guven’s Fine Jewelry has sued Lil Boat for breach of contract after he allegedly didn’t pay the six figures he owes for several pieces. The jeweler also claims he sent a $70,000 check that bounced.
Guven has been providing jewels to Yachty since 2017. Under their agreement, he would reportedly pay for the ones he decided to keep. According to the suit, Lil Boat paid for more than half of a $600,000 total he racked up for 20 pieces. But the payments have stopped with his last check bouncing.
Yachty has been accused of refusing to return the jewelry, which Guven demanded back. The Georgia-based jeweler claims the Quality Control rapper admits he owes them money but is making excuses for why he can’t pay.
“Bro if I had it I would give it to you,” he allegedly wrote in a text message. “I’m not gone hold u (sic) out if I had it just to give. I have had many bills to pay. Taxes, debt, etc… All that money went instantly. The teeth I just got I traded jewelry for.”
Guven has run into some trouble with members of the Quality Control roster before. The jeweler also sued Offset for failing to pay for $359,490 worth of jewelry.
Yachty hasn’t responded to the lawsuit as of October 28. Guven is seeking Lil Boat’s $233,000 debt plus damages and lawyer’s fees
