A jewelry store in Texas has filed a lawsuit against Maybach Music Group’s leader Rock Ross according to TMZ. Johnny’s Custom Jewelry is claiming that Ross has failed to pay a $89,847.50 tab for three diamond Rolexes. The Houston location is also asking for interest since the merchandise was delivered in August of 2012.
Johnny’s Custom Jewelry’s website boasts that the company has a celebrity clientele that includes famous rappers, singers, athletes, and television personalities. There are no specific celebrities listed on the site as customers, but the site’s header currently features images of Flo Rida, Nelly, and even Rick Ross.
Ross has been associated with Johnny’s in the past. There is video of Ross at Johnny’s Custom Jewelry in 2010, and he held an album signing event at the shop in August of last year. In footage of the 2012 appearance, Ross acknowledges being a fan of owner King Johnny and his brand.
“Shout out King Johnny’s for real. I’ve been f*cking with these boys from day one,” says Ross. “They gonna make a lot of custom pieces for me.”
The only evidence that has been made public in the present case is a photo of a billthat names Ross and Maybach Music Group as purchasers. The pic also shows a balance due for a $55,000 8K gold watch, a $14,000 8K gold watch, and a $14,000 two-tone watch.
Rick Ross has yet to make a public statement about the lawsuit.
