Incarcerated jeweler Jacob “The Jeweler” Arabov and his company Jacob & Co. filed a lawsuit against Wyclef Jean, claiming the rapper/producer owes over $300,000 in unpaid bills.
According to The New York Daily News, a lawsuit filed yesterday (July 29), Jacob & Co. accuses Wyclef of purchasing $765,000 worth of watches and jewels between March of 2002 and January 2006, but failed to pay the balance of $319,680.
In June, Arabov started a 30 month federal prison sentence for his role in laundering over $270 million in drug money for the Black Mafia Family (BMF).
Arabov, 43, pled guilty to falsifying records and giving false statements.
Representatives for Wyclef Jean could not be reached a press time.
