Tyga fails to close on house purchase

TYGA has failed to close on the purchase of his new home three times.

The 'Rack City' hitmaker has been in escrow on a $10 million, eight-bedroom property in the Calabasas home close to where girlfriend Kylie Jenner and various members of her family live, but has reportedly come up with excuses every time the deal has been due to complete.

According to TMZ, the 25-year-old star has blamed being on the road or not getting paid for not having the cash to finalise the transaction.

The news comes just a few weeks after Tyga was reprimanded by a judge for not paying a settlement agreed with one of his dancers.

Allison Brown sued the rapper for sexual battery as she claimed she was plied with alcohol and coerced to remove her top during a shoot on one of his music videos and alleged a man on the set groped one of her breasts.

She and Tyga - who was the target of the action because he was in charge - settled for around $50,000 but he only paid half so earlier this month a judge ordered him to pay the outstanding $25,000, plus $16,000 in lawyers fees.

In addition, the rapper has an outstanding tax lien of over $19,000 and owes his landlord $70,000 in back rent.
