Jacob the Jeweler Sues Wyclef Jean for Unpaid Bill


Wyclef Jean


He's sued by New York jewelry company Jacob and Company Incorporated for failing to pay $319,680 of a total bill of $765,100 for several items he bought between March 2002 and January 2006.

Another day sees another celebrity being hit with another lawsuit. The latest that has a run-in with the law is hip-hop artist Wyclef Jean. He's sued by jewelry dealer, known in the hip-hop world as "Jacob the Jeweler," over $300K worth of bling.

The diamond dealer to the hip-hop stars filed a lawsuit in Manhattan court Tuesday, July 29 alleging that Jean bought several items between March 2002 and January 2006 worth a total of $765,100. The court papers stated that Jacob and Company Incorporated claimed the star to still owe them $319,680, despite "repeated demands for payment."

Jean has yet to comment on the suit. Several representatives for him didn't immediately respond to emails requesting comment, the Associated Press reported.

The company's founder, Jacob Arabov, was known as the "king of bling" to celebrity customers, including Madonna, Elton John and Kanye West. He was sentenced in June to 2.5 years in federal prison for lying to investigators of a multistate drug ring.
