Eliantte & Company, a custom jeweler for the rich and famous, claims in legal documents filed in a New York court that Playboi Carti owes them a lot of money for unpaid jewelry, according to TMZ. Eliantte is suing Carti for $97,063 which is the outstanding balance for two items that the rapper ordered in September of 2020.
The original total balance for the 14-carat white gold diamond rosary chain and custom diamond tennis chain was $197,063.75. Eliantte claims that Carti made a $100,000 payment on January 25 (2021) but has neglected to pay the remainder.
Adding some confusion to the matter are two text messages that appear to be from Eliantte and Co. stating that the lawsuit is over a “misunderstanding.” The text states that the company, “never had a payment problem from [Carti],” according to RapTV. The correspondence continues, stating that Eliantte is in the process of creating a new chain for the rapper.
It is unclear if the jeweler will drop the reported court action against the rapper.
