It’s Pay Up Time: Rick Ross Hit With A $90K Lawsuit For Rolexes
It seems like it slipped Rick Ross’s mind to pay for three Rolexes he bought last year. The trio of watches cost almost $90,000 and now Johnny’s Custom Jewelry in, Houston, Texas, wants to be paid. TMZ reports that the store has filed the suit against Ross and his company Maybach Music, claiming the rapper agreed to purchase three diamond Rolexes last August for a total of $89,847.50.
The Rolexes include one 18K gold watch with 30 carats of diamonds ($55,000), one 18K gold watch with seven carats of diamonds ($14,000), and one two-tone watch with five carats of diamonds ($14,000), say the court papers. The sales tax alone was more than $6,000. Johnny’s says it delivered the goods as ordered, and now Ross has to pay not only for the bling bling, bling, but for interest.
While the Miami rapper is still worth millions, he recently lost between $3.5 million and $5 million when his Reebok endorsement deal went bust, reported TMZ (via Def Sounds). Ross was dropped from Reebok earlier this year over lyrics in one of his songs that talked about slipping something in a woman’s drink.
Ross’s camp did not return TMZ’s calls for comment.
