A$AP Rocky Hit With $100,000 Lawsuit for Allegedly Destroying NYC Apartment
A$AP Rocky is being sued for allegedly damaging an apartment he rented in NYC.
The rapper reportedly told the landlord at the apartment that he was going to be making some alterations to the unit but that he would restore it before the end of his lease, according to TMZ. However, the landlord says that when Rocky left it in August, it was damaged and filthy.
According to the landlord, Rocky also destroyed a custom built walk-in closet, and turned it into... yep, a recording room. At least he's focused on business, right? At any rate, Rocky also allegedly "removed a custom chandelier and security camera, damaged a downstairs bathroom and left stains and scratches throughout." The landlord wants money to repair the unit and also wants $100,000 in punitive damages.
Of course, Rocky isn't the first rapper to get in trouble with an old landlord recently. Tyga recently had to cough up hundreds of thousands to an old landlord who said he basically destroyed a house he was living in.Ironically, both Rocky and Tyga have been romantically linked to Kardashian sisters--Kendall and Kylie Jenner respectively.
In non-lawsuit related news, Rocky announced earlier this summer that his creative team AWGE had teamed up with London-based clothier, J.W. Anderson to design a men’s capsule collection.
As for the lawsuit, no one from Rocky's team has commented as of yet.
