A prank by Rich The Kid went awry, now the joke seems to be on him. It now is being reported that he’s being hit with a lawsuit because of the prank. Maro Burunsuzyan, the attorney for Rich’s former landlord, is suing the “New Freezer” rapper for allegedly posting her number on social media, according to reports from TMZ.
According to the lawsuit, Rich is being accused of sharing Burunsuzyan’s number on Twitter on February 14. This action by Rich led to harassment from his followers. He posted “Valentines calls me” with her number attached, which allegedly prompted at least 500 text messages and numerous phone calls according to TMZ.
Burunsuzyan is representing Haikuhe Chichyan, the landlord suing Rich for more than $30,000 overdue rent. She believes he put her number on blast because she’s been after him in court, attempting to get damages and back rent for her client.
The lawyer claims she had a conversation with Rich back on Valentine’s Day and she had alerted him that would no longer be talking to him since he refused to pay her the money allegedly owed to her client. She went on to claim that he reacted by saying, “Oh, really?” and posted the tweet soon after their conversation.
Burunsuzyan is asking for an unspecified amount of damages. Rich hasn’t commented on the lawsuit as of Wednesday night.
We will have more information as the story develops.
