Soulja Boy’s assault case will cost him a pretty penny and a luxury car… or three.
Court documents filed Friday reveal that a judge approved a woman’s request to seize the “Pretty Boy Swag” rapper’s property, including cash and exotic cars. In April, Soulja Boy, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was ordered to pay $471,800, including punitive damages, to her ex-girlfriend Kayla Myers after a jury found he had assaulted her.
Myers alleged in a lawsuit filed in January 2021 that the “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” artist kidnapped her and held a gun to her head at her Malibu home after a party in February 2019.
The warrant filed Friday said the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department “is authorized” to enter the rapper’s Bell Canyon home and “seize and seize” his personal property. Items listed in the order include a yellow Bentley, a red Lamborghini, a yellow Mercedes-Benz, a “diamond-encrusted” neck chain with the rapper’s stage name, “all other jewelry and chains, and all money cash”. According to court documents, Soulja Boy “possesses large amounts (wads) of cash (typically kept in backpacks).”
Myers is not the only woman who has accused Soulja Boy of assault. In 2021, model Nia Riley told blogger Tasha K that the rapper, whom she dated for several years, allegedly put a gun to her head when she tried to leave him and kicked her in the stomach while she was pregnant. . She said that shortly after she had a miscarriage.
In September 2022, Nia’s father, Teddy Riley, said he was “seeking an apology for what [Soulja Boy’s] done to my daughter.”
“You have to understand that you have to be a man about it,” he said. “Just be a man and keep it moving. Because he…he’s a successful guy. Because? Why all this and why does it have to be violent?
Soulja Boy could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
