Days after he appeared to reach for his bodyguard’s gun after he was physically dragged out of Floyd Mayweather’s 42nd birthday bash, it’s come out that the reason for the scuffle was a run-in with a group of men who’d reposed his car the month before, according to TMZ.
The website reports that when the “Taste” rapper and the men came across one another, words were exchanged and Tyga threatened the group. It was at that point he was kicked out of the party, leading to the video in which he can be seen grabbing for his bodyguard’s firearm.
Sources told TMZ that the rapper had fallen behind on payments for the $6,000 a month luxury vehicle, though he feels that the car was taken back unlawfully.
Despite the incident at Hollywood’s Sunset Room, it seems that Tyga and the men have since sorted things out. On Sunday, he posted a pic of himself and the group to his Instagram story, writing, “No rap cap. Real street s–t. Sat down face 2 face & spoke, & turned it into some real men s–t. All love. Back 2 the bag.”
Despite experiencing a career resurgence of sorts over the last year, it would appear that Tyga’s still struggling to stay on top of his bills, especially when it comes to his car. This latest repossession was his third in a matter of years.
