The “Bodak Yellow” rapper has been subpoenaed to appear at the end of the month for a deposition in the case, which accuses the group of accepting nearly $80,000 worth of luxury clothing and styling services and then stonewalling when it was time for the stylist to collect payment.
In addition to being grilled by lawyers repping styling company Luka Lorena, the pop star and mom of one will also have to hand over any messages from the past year and a half between her, Offset, Takeoff or Quavo or their “agents or representatives” over their alleged dirty dealings with celebrity stylist Luka Lorena, or any items they purchased during that time period, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.
Offset was also subpoenaed, along with the Migos’ manager and the company, “Lamar Business Services.”
If they don’t comply with Luka Lorena’s subpoena, they could be held in contempt of court. None of the people who were subpoenaed this week have responded through the courts, records show.
However, the lawyer for the Migos called the subpoenas little more than a “fishing expedition.”
“We are in receipt of the various subpoenas filed by Ms. Lorena and intend to follow the court’s instructions and requirements related thereto,” lawyer Justin Spizman told BOSSIP in a statement. “However, it appears a number of the subpoenas are related to uninterested parties and seem to be no more than a fishing expedition.”
We exclusively revealed that styling company Luka Lorena sued the “Bad & Boujee” artists earlier this year for breach of contract, conversion and conspiracy to convert property.
Luka Lorena principal Alicia Allicock sued Takeoff, Quavo and their manager Daniel Zook for allegedly making off with tens of thousands of dollars worth of merch from high-end brands like Chanel and Louis Vuitton.
Allicock said she had a styling deal with the rappers, where they approved purchases of several thousand dollars worth of luxury clothing and would reimburse the company plus a 20 percent styling fee.
When it came time to pay, the company got the run around from the Migos’ manager and then he stopped responding altogether, the suit says.
Lorena said the rappers haven’t paid a dime of the invoices to date, despite the company’s offer of payment plans and other ways to settle the debts. Lorena said the rappers have stopped responding and “used their agents to stonewall and intimidate” the company, their complaint, which was obtained by BOSSIP, states.
In total, Luka Lorena said Takeoff owed $35,625.42 and Quavo owed $44,294.33 for a total of $79,919.75, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.
In May, Offset was also named as a defendant in the case after Luka Lorena accused him of failing to hand over his social security number so that it could file the company’s taxes. However, last month, Offset discharged from the lawsuit, court papers show.
The case is ongoing.
