Rich The Kid Sued For Tweeting Lawyer’s Cell Number In “V-Day Prank”
Rich the Kid is being sued by his former landlord’s attorney for pulling one helluva prank. According to TMZ, not only is Maro Burunsuzyan looking to collect unpaid rent that she feels her client is owed but her own damages, associated with the aforementioned prank. Apparently, Rich the Kid issued a Tweet back in February containing the message “Valentines calls me” along with Burunsuzyan’s personal phone number. She didn’t take too kindly to the open solicitation.
According to documents filed in court, Maro Burunsuzyan was met with over 500 text messages from Rich the Kid fans pretending to be enamored with her, specially sequenced to coincide with St. Valentine’s yearly offering.
Maro Burunsuzyan wasn’t finished there, as she also claims Rich the Kid another lump sum over another rental fee he failed to post this past summer. Although she claims to have been in contact with Rich the Kid sometime in January, the rapper is believed to have given the attorney “the runaround” then as well.
TMZ reached out to Rich the Kid for his account of what went wrong, but the rapper and his reps have refused to make a public issue of it. For what it’s worth, I could see a judge sympathizing with Rich over the gag, but the monies owed, that’s another story altogether.
