AceShowbiz - Rapper Rich the Kid has been slapped with legal action for allegedly leaking a lawyer's private phone number on social media.
Maro Burunsuzyan claims she was first contacted by the "Plug Walk" star after her client, Rich's landlord, filed suit against him in January, amid a dispute over unpaid rent and damages reportedly caused to the Los Angeles home he was leasing.
She recalls having a brief conversation with Rich over the phone, but he abruptly hung up, and then tried to continue the chat via text message, explaining his label bosses at Interscope Records would cover the property fees.
According to paperwork obtained by The Blast, the rapper explained he didn't "have the money to pay it anyways lol (laugh out loud)," prompting Burunsuzyan to end the chat, declaring they were "done communicating".
Rich allegedly replied by writing, "oh really?", before the lawyer was inundated with phone calls from random people seeking to talk to the 26-year-old, rendering her cell "wholly unusable".
She blames the MC, real name Dimitri Roger, for apparently posting her number on Twitter, pretending it was his as he invited followers to get in touch.
"Valentines call me," the original tweet is said to have read. It has since been deleted.
Burunsuzyan is now demanding unspecified damages from Rich, citing invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
A representative for the rapper has yet to respond to the allegations.
