Scoop: Tyga at last pays back Beverly Hills jewelry debt

Tyga has started to pay the money he owes celebrity jeweler Jason Arasheben.

Arasheben (known as “Jason of Beverly Hills”) sued the rapper in 2013, claiming he was owed more than $270,000.

The jeweler’s attorney Danny Abir told “Entertainment Tonight” on Tuesday that Tyga has paid $100,000 of what was owed to his client and that he’ll pay the other half by Nov. 17.

The latest development in the case comes after Tyga appeared at Abir’s office on Oct. 18 for a debtors examination as planned, but fell ill two hours into questioning and was deemed “not well enough to proceed,” Abir told “ET.”

Tyga, 26, was set to answer questions about his support of income to maintain his luxurious lifestyle, including expensive gifts he’s given his girlfriend, reality star Kylie Jenner.

Now that he’s been dealing with the issue, it looks like Jenner, 20, who was subpoenaed in connection with the case, won’t have to appear in court after all.

TMZ reports that Tyga is paying his debt without help from Jenner or her famous family the Kardashians,
