In Gucci News, Rapper Loses Lawsuit to Keep Bling & Might Be Charged

| May 31, 2012 | 0 Comments

When does the word borrow mean to keep? Unfortunately for “So Icey” rapper Gucci Mane, a judge in Henry County Georgia made his ruling that will cost $275,000.00 to the rapper for not returning the goods to the store.

A&A Diamonds retained attorney Vivian Uchitel to file the lawsuit earlier this year in Henry County, claiming it loaned the rapper a $130,000 diamond pinky ring … in addition to a diamond necklace and bracelet worth $110,000.

According to the lawsuit, Gucci had 15 days to pay for the goods or return them — and he did neither … coughing up only $40,000.

A&A sued for a total of $274,523.34 — the $200,000 jewelry balance plus interest and attorneys’ fees.

Gucci never showed up in court, so a default judgment was entered against the rapper in April. A lien was then placed on the rapper’s property.  The store owner is also contemplating filing criminal charges against the rapper according to our sources.

Let’s see how this one plays out?
