Tyga on Kingin' with Tyga.

Tyga’s latest legal trouble could be waved after the rapper reportedly reached a settlement with his ex-landlord.

The West Coast MC (real name Michael Ray Stevenson) was issued an arrest warrant on Tuesday (Aug. 9) when he failed to appear before a Santa Monica court regarding a lawsuit filed by his former landlord.

Tyga's No-Show in Court Lands Him Arrest Warrant

Tyga was accused of owing Gholamreza Rezai a payment of $480,000 for his Malibu home, which the artist is said to have stopped paying rent on just three months after moving in. The rapper abandoned the property in 2012 and reportedly left Rezai with a sizeable damages bill. 

According to People, a settlement has been reached and Rezai’s legal reps will ask a Los Angeles County judge on Friday to quash the bench warrant. "There has been a settlement reached to the mutual satisfaction of the parties, the terms of which are confidential," Danny Abir, attorney for Rezai, told the title.

The hip-hop artist and his girlfriend Kylie Jenner are currently vacationing in Turks and Caicos in celebration of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's birthday.
