Playboi Carti is officially being sued by celebrity jeweler Elliot Eliantte over an unsettled $97,063.75 USD unpaid bill.
Last week, Eliantte and Co. claimed that the Whole Lotta Red artist bought two custom chains back in September 2020, but never paid his tab. The set featured a 14-carat white gold diamond rosary chain, plus a custom diamond tennis chain that equaled $197,063.75 USD. It was reported by TMZ that Eliantte confirmed that the rapper made a $100,000 USD payment in January, but the rest has yet to be fulfilled.
Last year, Eliantte posted to its Instagram the rosary chain, which appears to have been for the Playboi Carti’s birthday. It is unclear if the jeweler and the rapper have discussed the payment issue after news of him being sued. Just recently, Carti mad headlines again for claiming that his merch store has been hacked after fans made purchases for a $5,000 USD motorcycle helmet amongst other expensive items. Check out the rosary chain below.
