Soulja Boy Told to Pay Former Girlfriend Over $230K for Assault at his Home
Soulja Boy owes his former girlfriend almost a quarter of a million dollars for an incident that took place almost four years ago.
According to RadarOnline, DeAndre Cortez Way, better known as Soulja Boy has lost a lawsuit to his former girlfriend, Kayla Meyers. Court papers obtained by the media outlet show that the Crank That rapper has been ordered by a jury to pay over $230k to Meyers.
The decision in the civil lawsuit was rendered by the jury on April 21.
The jury came to the conclusion to award Meyers $1,800 for mental health expenses and an additional $234,100 for the physical and mental pain and suffering she suffered. The sum of her judgment amounts to $235,900.
The lawsuit was filed because of an incident that happened at a house party on Feb. 1, 2019. Meyers had been in an off and on again relationship with the embattled recording artist. On the night of the incident, Meyers stated that she was embroiled in a tussle with Soulja’s female assistant. She accused the rapper of approaching her and beating her in the head with a gun.
She then claimed that Soulja Boy went after her and punched her in the face and then he had his assistant tie her up with extension cords. The assistant held her against her will for six hours. In the lawsuit, she also said that Tevin demanded that she perform a sexual act on him so she can be untied and allowed to leave. Meyers said she agreed to do so so you could leave.
Meyers said she suffered 3 fractured ribs and a bruised face from the alleged attack by them.
When she was able to escape, Meyers said she immediately called the police. Police officers raided his home and conducted a search and ended up finding guns in the house. With the arrest, it triggered a probation violation from Soulja Boy from a separate case. He was taken to jail and released several months later.
Although he was arrested, he was never charged in the alleged assault of Meyers.
