Playing Judge Issues Warrant for Tyga's Arrest

Could Tyga be headed to jail?

The 26-year-old rapper has landed in legal hot water after failing to appear in court on Tuesday. Tyga was expected to appear for questioning about his finances after a former landlord was granted a $480,000 judgment for unpaid rent and damages to the Malibu property.

The judge has reportedly now issued a $10,000 bench warrant for Tyga's arrest -- meaning that he could go to jail -- for skipping out on the scheduled questioning.

TMZ reports that Tyga's over-the-top birthday gift to girlfriend Kylie Jenner, a $200,000 Mercedes Maybach, has raised some red flags in the case. Attorneys for his former landlord reportedly claim that the purchase was a fraudulent transfer of assets that should have instead been allocated to the judgment.

Earlier this summer, Tyga signed a new lease on a home located just blocks from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Bel-Air estate. A source told ET in June that the 12,800-square-foot pad came with the steep price of $46,500 per month. Around that same time, Jenner took the Snapchat to show off a pair of matching, diamond-encrusted watches, while the couple shopped around for luxury vehicles.  

And it was just last year that Tyga presented his ladylove with another pricey birthday gift: a $320,000 Ferrari 482 Italia.
