Bosses at Aydin & Company claim the It's Goin Down hitmaker agreed to purchase a ring and a bracelet for $17,500 (GBP10,900) from the company in 2009, but he has failed to pay up.

According to the lawsuit, filed on Monday (17Aug15), the jewellers are seeking over $79,900 (GBP49,900) for full payment, interest and attorney's fees.

Young Joc isn't the only rapper currently facing legal heat over the alleged non-payment for jewellery items - DJ Khaled has launched a countersuit against bosses at a New York jewellery company suing him for $100,000 (GBP66,700) over unpaid bills.

Rafaello & Company bosses are demanding payment for two Rolex watches, a pair of diamond earrings, a four carat diamond ring, and a custom-made diamond chain, which were reportedly provided to him in 2012 after he filled out paperwork allowing him to try out the pieces for 15 days before buying.

They claim he failed to pay and kept the items.

But the 39 year old has fired back at the lawsuit with his own legal papers, alleging fraud.

He insists he did business with bosses at the company from 2008 to 2013 and was never provided with an invoice or receipt for items borrowed or purchased.
