Rapper Chief Keef has been sued by the landlord of his $1 million Illinois mansion for allegedly failing to pay the rent for the past two months amounting to $9,400. Georghe Simoniak-Sas, the landlord of the six-bedroom, 5,100 square foot residence, has filed the lawsuit to collect the unpaid dues as well as to have the 18-year-old rap star evicted from the property.
Keef has apparently failed to pay the monthly rent of $4,700 for the months of July and August on his lavish home. The young hip-hop artist, who is signed to Interscope Records and has his own record label, Glory Boyz Entertainment, has released his debut album in December 2012 but his career thus far has been marred by several legal issues.
Earlier this year, Keef was arrested for smoking marijuana in an upscale hotel in DeKalb County in Atlanta. Then the week after, he was taken into police custody for speeding in his hometown while driving with more than the allowed number of passengers, for which he was put on 1-1/2 years probation and was made to undergo random drug testing.
In work-related offenses, he had been previously sued for not showing up for a scheduled performance by promotion company Team Major for failing to perform for his gig at the O2 Arena in London for which he was ultimately ordered to pay more than $200,000. Before he turned 18, he had been put away in a juvenile detention facility for violating his probation.
