Young Thug, right, is accusing a local high end jewelry store of extorting him for hundreds of thousands of dollars for diamond chip jewelry he purchased on a layaway plan. The rapper is seen posing with Icebox president Mo Joomla in this undated photo.

Icebox filed a $350,000 lawsuit against the rapper who is demanding the lawsuit be thrown out. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Thug claims Icebox is trying to screw him out of hundreds of thousands after initially trying to be his friend.

The rapper, who was born Jeffery Lamar Williams, denies the allegations in the lawsuit over an unpaid jewelry bill for $115,000 bill. He says Icebox took advantage of him.

The rapper claims that "over the course of several months, and on multiple occasions, Plaintiff solicited Williams and urged him to accept expensive jewelry without requiring any payment up-front."

Young Thug points to Icebox still using photos of him on their Instagram page.

Thug claims Icebox uses a "predatory business practice involving assurances of a friendly and accommodating transaction with flexible terms to be worked out at a later date, followed by unilaterally set payment terms and deadlines."

Icebox claimed to have loaned Thugger $200,000 in jewelry with the promise he would pay later. According to The Blast, the rapper visited the store four times and was given a $30,000 Rolex watch, $20,000 Cartier bracelet, $30,000 diamond wallet chain and a $6,5000 rose gold clasp.

Icebox said Thug made payments of $95,000 over time but he stopped making the layaway payments and left an unpaid balance of $115,090.

Some jewelry stores enter into the profitable hip-hop market by offering to loan jewels to celebrity clientele on a layaway plan. The terms of the layaway plan include marketing the store by wearing the pieces on social media.

Icebox suspects

Icebox was recently in the news after 2 armed robbers tied up the store owner, Jeff Dimunzio, during a home invasion earlier this month. The suspects then broke into Icebox and cleaned out 2 of the seven safes in the back of the store over a period of 2 hours.

According to CBS46, Icebox still has not provided surveillance footage or an itemized list of the stolen items to Cobb County police. The investigation into the jewelry theft and home invasion are ongoing.

    Layaway, pmt plan, pay later...

    NONE OF THIS INDICATES FREE JEWELRY!!! Pay what you owe. If you couldn't afford or didn't want it you should not have accepted it!

    Have you noticed that most of these "jewelers" aren't wearing their own "flashy" jewelry???????????

  • WinterIsComing

    Plot twist: the robbers work for Young Thug. But on a serious note. Why buy items if you have to be on a payment plan to afford them? I am not a fan of interest and fees-I learned that lesson the hard way in college.

  • Bashi22

    Funny how diamond comes from Africa I yet to see any African/black people own a profitable jewelry store. That black/African's can purchase from and build wealth in their own community.

  • BingBangBoom

    Chile I just see lots of unnecessary numbers for jewelry in this post.. Smh.. Do u know what I could do with that type of money???

  • Blue


  • TriniHarlem

    My exact sentiment. Hey boo hey ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Marlika

    Who puts thousands of dollars of unnecessary gaudy looking jewelry on layaway????????

    Those Arabs know they have a bunch of fools buying from them.

    No one cares thugga?????

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    If they sold him 200k it was worth around 50k

  • Fire & Ice

    What's new!!! Typical hood rich negro buying overpriced sh*t, to give the illusion of having money. All while appealing to other dummied down negroes, so they can give their money away none blacks.

  • hottlanta

    Diamond chip on a layaway plan. I cant.?

  • Fire & Ice

    Yup! I think Dj Khaled was caught up in some sh*t like this too. The jeweler was lying about the value of the diamonds.

  • Yardgirl

    O/T: Did anyone watch the Masked Singer?? I don't usually watch music shows like Voice, American Idol etc. but I have to admit that I was hooked on this show and loved it!! There were so many surprise reveal (Rumer Willis, Ricki Lake, Latoya Jackson!!) but the big surprise was the winner and runner up. I won't say more just in case I end up spoiling it if there is someone yet to watch, OR no one may care and I can just say it anyway!! LOL!! Anyone??Anyone?? Bueller?? :-))

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    That fool didnt have to go home with the jewlery! Rings on every finger, 10 chokers around your neck and 3 watches on your wrists??? ???????

    Black male “entertainers” are some of the most IGNORANT fools that EVER walked this earth ???

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Kendall Jenner? Didnt watch it

  • SpiceGirl

    IMHO....just dumb and stupid

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Idiots dont get their jewlery appraised by a private person? Pre K education having a$$ fools???

  • hottlanta

    Yeah like going 2 a nail salon getting your nails done n the person servicing u nails arent done but they got a mask on their face 2 avoid the chemicals doing yours.

  • hottlanta

    He needs 2 invest in a car wash n rance his dusty dirty looking azz off.

  • Ms.Devereaux

    They speaking all that money on that country ass costume jewelry smh ????? Lord this robbery thing is still very very suspect

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Hip Hop set us back like generations, tho it created some music moguls, millionaires who had the sense to bank and invest, but the stupidity is real!

    The jewelers, car dealerships, interior designers, real estate and rental agents salvitate when they get one of these rappers, knowing they will pad their bill!, and straight up rip them off!

  • Fire & Ice

    A lot of these guys are not that bright. Many of them live on hood logic and believe that street smarts is all they need. This is why many of them end of broke.

  • Yardgirl

    Runner up Gladys Knight (The Bee) and winner T Pain who was dressed up as the Monster. He stumped everyone and has a great singing voice, like really really good!!

  • Trace da Ace

    and this is why these young and old rappers need to invest their money in stuff that will benefit them in the long run....not no damn diamond chip about investing in stocks, or property or land...or SOMETHING that they can fall back on once their rap careers are over??? I feel like these rappers need life coaches or some shit.....

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. Got all these Arabs, Jews, Asians etc getting rich off black folk, and we just let them. That's always bothered me.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I LOVE T Pain!!! EXTREMELY talented guy and has a great personality! Good for him!

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Since most of the stuff the guys are wearing looks so fake why not just buy fake jewelry and save a ton of money and put it to better use !!!!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If you have to be putting the jewelry on layaway instead of just buying it outright... the jewelry is probably outside of your budget/range. You should probably buy something cheaper, or better yet just invest your money.

  • Logan Roberts

    If you're gonna pretend, you may as well pretend with fake jewelry ?. These folks make me sick, wasting money I could be putting to good use.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    A friend of mine is good friends with a former NFL player and that's exactly what he does. His logic is that since everybody knows he's made millions, if he has on good quality fake jewelry, nobody would ever think it's fake... so that's what he buys, and saves a lot of money. Smart dude.

  • Pamela

    They should consult auntie Oprah. She'll hook them up with her accounting people.

  • Carrington

    Ever notice that you've never seen Jon Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, Adam Levine, Chad Kroeger or, Chris Daughtry wearing $300K - but when they do their behind the music story 15 years after their last hit song, you're wondering how those mfs still manage to live in $5 million dollar homes?... that's how.

  • 888

    Although I have indulged in some unjustified purchases now & then and although diamonds are pretty to look at. Diamonds are not rare and do not hold any value. As soon as I learned this they lost all their "shine" to me. Controlled distribution and marketing at its finest. Goodness we are so easily misguided! In so many ways. Also I cannot take the "we were friends" "we are fam" excuse anymore from people. When will we learn 99.9% thats b.s. so we need to act accordingly.

  • T Willis

    I don’t understand why they put jewelry on layaway? Lol. I thought layaway was for things you actually needed but couldn’t afford outright. Jewelry is a luxury item. That’s like asking Chanel if you could put one of their $5k bags on a layaway plan ?. The stupidity just never ends....
    Besides I don’t f*ck with this dude... ain’t he the one that said dark skinned chicks should never wear red lipstick?

  • T Willis

    I wonder if I can walk into Tiffany’s and ask to put that $35k diamond solitaire pendant on a layaway plan ??????

  • Fire & Ice

    Money you could be putting to good use ???

  • Dasright

    I just said this, especially after the pictures up top of the Icebox employee. He's wearing minimum to no jewelry...surrounded by rappers who have all this gaudy jewelry on.

  • Fire & Ice

    Not to mention the mental damage they've done. Glorifying street life, drugs, violence, womanizing, degrading black women, and the list goes on.

  • Sassie

    Sounds like Thugger still owes the money *shrugs* - and I think that robbery was an inside job.

  • Sassie

    I'd do the EXACT same thing. Sure I'd have a few pieces of REAL stuff, but not the over the top stuff. I'd prolly have a real ring and bracelet, but the chains and pendants and all that other shit would be FAKE

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    It’s was a football player spent 13 million with a jeweler and was suing him because he found out it was cheap crap

  • Fire & Ice

    Comical and sad at the same time.

  • Bossy704

    Icebox is some crooks and if they are going to use those young men for free promo they could pay them for it. I'm sure the jewelry was overpriced with high interest. Those social media ads more than paid for that jewelry.

  • Frank Blunt

    Naw that was A$AP Rocky with the celie braids ...but was crushing on Janelle Monae? aka unattainable eclectic black woman with standard

  • stav

    Chip jewelry is pretty much worthless, and with all the exposure the company gets for advertising the "celebrity" with their crap jewelry on, the cheap jewelry should be given to them. Shows how ignorant the rappers are that allow themselves to be used. You give them millions in advertisements by being seen in their cheap products, and they still say you owe them, the items were on layaway, well if you went for got what you deserve!

  • Yardgirl

    OMG!! I didn't know much about him other than the whole "auto tune" controversy but mayne that guy IS talented!! I hope he parlays this to more greatness!!

  • Reina1718

    They all work 2gether, all for promo & for artist to look rich... faking It & these youngins eat it up

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I remember seeing in a documentary about how Jon Bon Jovi has long been one of the smartest artists out there, in terms of how he structures his music contracts and business deals. That's probably a big reason why he's worth over $400 million today.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I believe Thugger.

  • Li-Wright

    Always get it in writing. I guess I'm the only one who watches Judge Judy :)

  • Erin

    Robbery = Insurance Scam

  • Reina1718

    So true

  • Hazel

    I do that with clothes. I'll wear chanel shoes and handbags with a Forever 21 top (if it's cute and well made)! I don't do fake handbags or jewelry though; if I can spot fake diamonds and handbags, I feel like all my associates can as well.

  • Chipswife

    did he get some other pieces?? because that's only totaling to 86k
    I knew it was a reason I never cared for this place.. aside from they remind me of the middle of the mall jewelers who be trying to scam folks with them rings with the milky cloudy stones.. seems real shady to me

  • Nina Ross

    Icebox insurance fraud perhaps

  • Soon2BWife

    I wonder is chip jewelry what The Wopsters wear or are they outright CZ’s?

  • Vonda K

    This right here?
    I seen Unsung episode with Ray Parker Jr and he’s still living lavishly in his hits from Ghostbuster. Invested well and he’s a writer.
    When will these rapperz wake up.
    A bunch of simpletons!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So true. A lot of these rappers (and R&B artists)... if they have a house, a couple of nice cars and some fancy jewelry they think they're ballin'. But that's not generational wealth. That's why so many of them are broke within a few years after their music career is over.

  • PlayerP

    Tawdry trinkets...not a fan of this look, particularly on men. Only a few have been able semi pull it off - Slick Rick the Ruler

  • Vonda K

    I accidentally deleted my original post.

  • Vonda K

    And probably has nice savings and kids attend good schools. Oh, and helping out family and community. All the things these (not) rappers seem to lack.

  • Kayke

    They’re diamonds, just with poor quality, not polished or cut, and they’re real cheap.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Me neither.. Like wtf is a diamond chip anyway??? I know about rocks only! So they doing optical illusions with diamonds now?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    But the MESSED up thing about it is they Supposedly have legit people on their payroll who are supposed to help them spend their money properly.. Crooks are EVERYWHERE...

    Good for his Purple dress wearing a$$???

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Exactly! A LOT of Americans are illiterate when it comes to math(no matter the ethnicity)! What a shame?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Perfect gif!

  • Fire & Ice

    "Purple dress wearing ass" LMAO

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    ...and then wear it out the store. Real money doesn't have to tell you they have it
