Tyga’s Net Worth: Is Kylie Jenner’s Ex Richer Than You Think?

Learn how much he's worth after Kylie and Tyga split.

He’s no longer with Kylie Jenner, but Tyga is moving forward. The rapper  whose real name is Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson  has fame, fortune and a new girlfriend who looks strikingly similar to Jenner’s half-sister Kim Kardashian.

Tyga’s former lady is rumored to become a first-time mom by fellow rapper Travis Scott in early 2018 — and although Tyga isn’t the dad, he continues to chase the title of chart-topper. Find out how Tyga’s earnings compare to other rappers.

Tyga Net Worth: $2 Million

More than just a successful rapper, Tyga is also a reality TV star, actor and the owner of the Last Kings clothing line. His MTV show “Kingin’ With Tyga” has filmed two seasons to date and he’s appeared several times on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” — due to his previous relationship with Jenner.

Additionally, he’s appeared on the silver screen in a few roles — including “Dope,” “Once Upon a Time in Venice,” “Barbershop: The Next Cut” and “Boo! A Madea Halloween.”

Tyga Albums, Singles and Awards

Since releasing his debut album “No Introduction” in 2008, Tyga has become a household name. Prior to striking out on his own, he worked his way up to solo status by collaborating with a number of big-name artists, including Fall Out Boy, Gym Class Heroes and Lil Wayne. Since then, he’s gone on to release three studio albums: “Careless World,” “Hotel California” and “The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.”

As a solo artist, Tyga hasn’t seen any Gold or Platinum distinctions from the Record Industry Association of America. However, the Young Money collaboration album — fittingly called “We Are Young Money” — earned Gold certification.

Tyga and Kylie Jenner

It remains unclear exactly when the on-and-off relationship of millionaire makeup mogul Kylie Jenner and Tyga started. The rapper expressed his love for the reality starlet in a March 2015 over an Instagram post, but they kept their romance largely under wraps until her 18th birthday in August of that year. To celebrate her foray into adulthood, Tyga surprised Jenner with a leased $450,000 Ferrari and joined her and her friends on a lavish Mexican vacation.

Over the next year, the couple’s relationship hit several rocky patches. The pair broke up and got back together on multiple occasions, including Tyga’s 26th birthday. However, the two appeared to have patched things up by Jenner’s 19th birthday, as Tyga gifted her a Mercedes-Benz Maybach and a lavish trip to Turks and Caicos, provided by Airbnb. In September 2016, Tyga presented Jenner with a giant diamond promise ring.

A father of one, Tyga and his ex-fiancee Blac Chyna have a 5-year-old son, King Cairo. Tyga’s son has one half-sibling — a 1-year-old sister named Dream Kardashian, who is the daughter of Rob Kardashian from his brief engagement to Blac Chyna. Rob Kardashian is also the half-brother of Jenner. 

Tyga — an acronym for Thank You God Always — moved out of Kylie Jenner’s $6 million Hidden Hills, Calif., mansion after their latest split. His current residence is unknown, but his last-known solo pad was a 12,800-square-foot Bel-Air, Calif. mansion leased for $46,500 per month in June 2016, according to TMZ.

Tyga’s Problems

In September 2017, TMZ spotted the rapper driving his current car, a rare Bugatti Veyron, which has an estimated base price of $2.3 million. Additionally, he purchased an 18-karat grill — complete with 1,400 diamonds — for $45,000 in June 2016, according to TMZ.

As he was vacationing in Turks and Caicos with Jenner in August 2016, Tyga got the news that a warrant had been issued for his arrest in the U.S. The rapper had neglected to show up for a court hearing regarding a $480,000 judgment a former landlord received because of unpaid rent and damage to a home in Malibu, Calif. He promptly settled the case — and avoided arrest — before coming back to the U.S.

Shortly after, Tyga was hit with another $186,275.89 judgment to F&S Investment Property, the company that owned the Los Angeles space for his planned retail store, Last Kings Clothing.

In September 2016, his 2014 Maybach 62 S Landaulet was also repossessed, according to TMZ. The rapper appears to be trying to get his finances in order — TMZ reported in November 2016 that he paid off the full balance of a judgment brought against him by a jeweler in Beverly Hills, which cost him $100,000 plus interest.
