Rapper BABY has been hit with a lawsuit alleging he owes $82,000 (GBP51,250) in jewellery bills.

The suit, filed by KING'S JEWELLERS of Florida, says the Cash Money RECORDS boss, who also goes by the name of Birdman, ordered a $23,000 (GBP14,375) pendant made of 18 carat white gold and diamonds which formed the initials BM.

The suit also claims Baby, real name BRYAN WILLIAMS, ordered nine white gold diamond pendants inscribed with CASH MONEY RECORDS totalling $54,000 (GBP33,750).

According to King's Jewelers, Williams ordered and approved the custom jewellery but never picked up his order.
