Soulja Boy Ordered To Pay Ex-Girlfriend $250K In Damages For Allegedly Bashing Her w/ A Gun
It looks like Soulja Boy is getting ready to cough up some big bucks.
Soulja Boy has been ordered to pay over $230k to his ex-girlfriend Kayla Meyers.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline, a Los Angeles jury reached a verdict on April 21 and sided with Meyers. The jury awarded Meyers $1,800 for mental health expenses and another $234,100 for physical and mental pain and suffering, bringing the total to $235,900.
Additionally, the jury found that Soulja Boy engaged in the conduct with “malice, oppression or fraud.”
As previously reported, Kayla Meyers recently testified in court about the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of the rapper during a 2019 house party. The jury was shown many images of purported injuries to Meyers‘ face and leg by her attorneys while she testified. There was also a photo shown of her in the hospital following the alleged incident. Meyers’ attorneys provided screenshots of alleged direct Instagram messages Soulja Boy sent to her as additional proof of the abuse, along with copies of her hospital care records.
In the lawsuit, Meyers expressed that she and Soulja had an on-again, off-again relationship that ultimately came to an end on February 1, 2019, at a party in Malibu.
Meyers claimed that as she tried to leave the party, she got into a confrontation with Soulja’s female friend who allegedly knocked her to the ground.
According to Meyers, Soulja came up to her and hit her with a gun then punched her in the face. She testified that the rapper told her she would die that night. She later claimed that his assistant Tevin Anderson tied her to a chair with extension cords.
Meyers alleged that she was held captive for six hours and the assault left her with three shattered ribs and a bruised face. She claimed Anderson wouldn’t release her until she committed a sexual act on him and after she complied, she sprinted out of the house and called the police. Police officers raided the home and found Soulja had weapons, which led to a probation violation in a separate criminal case and landed the rapper in jail.
Reportedly, phase 2 of the trial begins this week where the jury will make a decision on punitive damages.
