Kylie Jenner Summoned to Answer Questions Under Oath Regarding Tyga’s Financial Issues
Kylie Jenner has been looped into Tyga’s legal battle.
Celebrity jeweler Jason Arasheben sued the “Rack City” rapper back in 2013, claiming he owes him an “excess of $270,000” in unpaid jewelry expenses. Now, the 19-year-old reality star must answer questions under oath regarding her boyfriend’s finances.
Arasheben’s attorney, Danny Abir of Abir, Cohen, Treyzon and Salo, tells ET that in addition to questioning Tyga, 26, about his support of income to maintain his luxurious lifestyle, he also plans to question Jenner about the extravagant gifts she’s received from him, such as a snakeskin Gucci handbag, diamond promise ring, a $320,000 white Ferrari 482 Italia for her 18th birthday and a $200,000 black Mercedes Maybach for her 19th birthday in August.
According to court documents obtained by ET, both Tyga and Jenner are ordered to be available for examinations “between now and Oct. 6.” Abir has agreed to conduct the questioning in a private setting, as opposed to a courthouse.

Abir also tells ET that the examinations will be done separately, and the line of questions will focus on Tyga’s source of funds for the lavish presents he’s given the lip kit maven.
“Our client, Jason of Beverly Hills, has a judgment against [Tyga]. Until he pays off this judgment, unless he has other means of paying off this obligation and does, his sources of income used to buy these extravagant gifts or to support such a lifestyle should be used to satisfy his obligation,” Abir explained. “That potentially includes the gifts themselves.”
“We will ask him questions related to his finances, such as to his source of income to support his lifestyle as well as to pay for the extravagant gifts he buys Ms. Jenner,” he added. “He will have to answer under oath and so will Ms. Jenner.”
