Rick Ross Facing $90,000 Lawsuit

(AllHipHop News) A jewelry store in Texas has filed a lawsuit against Maybach Music Group’s leader Rock Ross according to TMZ. Johnny’s Custom Jewelry is claiming that Ross has failed to pay a $89,847.50 tab for three diamond Rolexes. The Houston location is also asking for interest since the merchandise was delivered in August of 2012.

Johnny’s Custom Jewelry’s website boasts that the company has a celebrity clientele that includes famous rappers, singers, athletes, and television personalities. There are no specific celebrities listed on the site as customers, but the site’s header currently features images of Flo Rida, Nelly, and even Rick Ross.

Ross has been associated with Johnny’s in the past. There is video of Ross at Johnny’s Custom Jewelry in 2010, and he held an album signing event at the shop in August of last year. In footage of the 2012 appearance, Ross acknowledges being a fan of owner King Johnny and his brand.

“Shout out King Johnny’s for real. I’ve been f*cking with these boys from day one,” says Ross. “They gonna make a lot of custom pieces for me.”

The only evidence that has been made public in the present case is a photo of a bill that names Ross and Maybach Music Group as purchasers. The pic also shows a balance due for a $55,000 8K gold watch, a $14,000 8K gold watch, and a $14,000 two-tone watch.

Rick Ross has yet to make a public statement about the lawsuit.

    I’ve never seen or even heard of a 8 kt gold Rolex. To the best of my knowledge, they’ve always used 18 kt gold. Must be a typo?

    • Calico Joe

    Dear fat ass former C.O., please pony up the money for this jewelry instead of using it on food.

    I don’t think this Johnny’s is the same jeweler as that short Vietnamese bobble head dude, Johnny Dang although this happens to be based in Houston.

    This lame should know…real bosses dont rent or lease shit. FAIL. SMH.

      Actually this is only partly true…if you already own your everyday driver leasing your toy makes more financial sense than dropping all that cash on a finance or a straight purchase. But you right, if you don’t own your own whip leasing is for suckers, otherwise you can be in a new whip every few years as long as you can afford the payment.

    It must be an accounting error, because we all know Boss Ross aka Rick Ross, aka Rozay, aka Corrections Officer, etc. is not a fraud. He would never shaft no one for a measley 90 stacks.

    • Matt Swan

      He spent more than that at KFC last month….and he ate the bones!!!

      • NEWSKULL

        ABOMINATION!!!!

    People im from Teaxas King Johnny the 1 in the article is the Real Johnny and TVJohnny is a copy cat, his uses alloy. I’ve had the same piece mad from both and TV Johnny’s was not all the way gold.

  • the real

    Yea the only reason TV Johnny is where he is at is cause of Paul Wall. Tv Johnny knows what time it is with if fake shit.. King Johnny is the original Johnny. but here’s the secret people 90% of Jewelers send their stuff off that’s why they charge a lot . example you want a custom piece & chain 200grams and 100 carats. 90% would charge 50,000 & up. In reality G color VS1 a Carat cost around $600-750 per carat meaning smaill stones. screw them know your shit first. Texas Boys
