Soulja Boy is $6,000 behind on rent for house in the Hills: report

UPDATED, 7:30 p.m., Jan. 14: Watch him crank it, watch him roll …. Watch him get sued by his landlord?

Rapper Soulja Boy allegedly owes his landlord more than $6,000 in rent for his Hollywood Hills home, for which he signed a lease just three months ago, according to TMZ.

The landlord will resort to legal action if Soulja Boy doesn’t pay up by week’s end, he told the tabloid.

The possible suit caps off an already tough week for Soulja, who was just burglarized at the same address. The thief reportedly made off with $22,000 worth of cash and jewelry.

According to Soulja’s spokesperson, however, the property is leased by his business partner, “Possible Philly,” and is unrelated to the rapper himself.

The landlord was also paid a six-month rental advance, the spokesperson said in an email to The Real Deal.

“Soulja Boy is NOT currently experiencing any financial hardships; he was in Hong Kong a few days ago for a booking at Volar nightclub and his booking fee more than covers several consecutive rental payments at the aforementioned property,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, Soulja is knee-deep in a feud with singer Chris Brown after he allegedly “liked” an Instagram post by Brown’s ex-girlfriend. After two weeks of social media skirmishes, the two R&B stars reportedly decided to resolve the conflict through a boxing match, which now involves Floyd Mayweather and Mike Tyson as their respective trainers. [TMZ] — Cathaleen Chen
