Yung Joc Slapped With Default Judgment In Jewellery Lawsuit


Yung Joc

Bosses at Aydin & Company sued the It's Goin Down star in August (15), claiming he failed to pay $17,500 (£10,900) for a ring and bracelet he picked up from the company in 2009.

According to Bossip.com, the 32 year old was served the legal papers in August, but failed to respond and the jewellers were awarded the $79,900 (£49,900) they were seeking for full payment, interest and attorney's fees earlier this month (Nov15).

Yung Joc has yet to respond to the ruling, but the jewellers' lawyer, Shelitha Renee Robertson, tells the publication, "The next thing we'll do is take the necessary steps to enforce the judgment. It's a prime example of justice prevailing."

Rapper Yung Joc has lashed out at allegations suggesting he staged a robbery at his studio in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month (Dec11) to cash in on an insurance policy.

Yung Joc 'Respects' The Law


Yung Joc

LATEST: Rapper Yung Joc has apologised for turning up late to a court hearing, insisting he has "the utmost respect for the laws" of the U.S.
The It's Goin' Down hitmaker - real name Jasiel Robinson - was scheduled to face a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon in a Cleveland, Ohio court on Wednesday (26Dec07), but turned up to the court seven hours late.
But in a statement obtained by website TMZ.com, Robinson claims he does have respect for authority.
He says, "I have the utmost respect for the laws of this country and would never deliberately commit an act that would jeopardize my freedom, my family, or my career.
"I've worked very hard to achieve my goals, and it's unfortunate that this current situation has garnered more attention than the many donations I've made and the charitable work I've done with various organizations."
Robinson faces the charges after being arrested on Sunday night (23Dec07), accused of attempting to take a loaded semi-automatic handgun through security at Ohio's Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
