Tyga was served with legal papers during his birthday celebrations at a Hollywood nightclub.

The 'Rack City' hitmaker was celebrating turning 27 on Friday (18.11.16) - the day before his actual birthday - at Penthouse nightclub in West Hollywood when a man appeared and handed over new legal papers.

According to TMZ, the process server was then forcibly removed from the venue.

It is unclear why Tyga - who is dating Kylie Jenner - has been served, but he has had a string of legal and financial battles over the last year.

In September, it was reported that Tyga's mother was at risk of getting her Range Rover repossessed after the rapper failed to keep up the $1,000-a-month repayments on the $60,000 Evoque model.

Previously, Tyga's own Ferrari was seemingly repossessed, while he was also recently the subject of a $200,000 lawsuit filed by jeweller Jason of Beverly Hills due to an allegedly unpaid purchase of a watch and chain in 2013, and has had action taken against him by more than one landlord for unpaid rent.

Tyga's repayments were due to be settled in debtor's examination last month, however after just two hours of grilling, the 'Ayo' rapper asked for the questioning to end because he felt he was too sick to proceed.

The legal representative for the opposing party explained: "Considering there are a number of documents we asked him to produce that he had not brought with him and the fact that we still have a lot more questions to ask, we have agreed for him to return with the documents on November 1 for the remainder of the examination."
