According to court documents obtained by Radar, the trustee presiding over the rapper's Chapter 13 bankruptcy claims Trick (real name: Maurice Young) has failed to make his required monthly payments.
The trustee claims Trick is delinquent in the amount of $22,186. The filing says the rapper has 45 days to pay up or his entire bankruptcy will be dismissed. If that happens, he will be on the hook for any remaining debt and won't have the court's protection — meaning his creditors can start coming after his assets to collect.
Trick originally filed the case in August 2019. He has had a long history of money troubles. Over the years, the rapper has made three previous attempts to file for bankruptcy but each was dismissed.
In his latest petition, Trick listed $800k in debt that he was struggling to pay. His assets included his Florida home worth $350k, $1,500 worth of furniture, $100 worth of clothing, and nothing in his bank account.
Trick’s debts included $435k owed on the home and another $60k in back child support. He also owes the IRS $300k.
At the time of the filing, Trick was a star on Love & Hip Hop: Miami and was making $10,000 a month. He also was a co-host of a radio show with Trina on 99JAMZ. However, the show was pulled months after he made controversial comments about Beyoncé not being able to sing.
His expenses per month total $3,000. In his petition, the rapper said he only made $75k in 2018 and $7,500 in 2017. As part of the case, the rapper was put on a 5-year repayment plan where he agreed to pay $7,300 a month on his debts. In recent court documents, the trustee is asking the bankruptcy to be dismissed.
He criticized Beyoncé, “because she see money” and she “ain’t trying to give back to music or nothing.”
"Beyoncé don’t write music and barely can sing her motherfu--in’ self. Beyoncé can’t sing,” he said.
Trick added, “Man, I watched my godmama train Beyoncé, vocal lessons all her career. I’mma give an unpopular opinion right now: Beyoncé is to R&B what Jay-Z is to New York. That’s why they together. Jay-Z ain’t never won the greatest rapper alive. Whoever put him on a level like that?”
