The rapper was given permission to use Robert Seltzer's account to charge food, hotel, and transportation costs while touring as long as he paid the financier back at the end of each month.
Seltzer alleged Tyga failed to hand the cash back to him and sued the star in an attempt to recoup a total of $13,396 - plus interest.
However, Tyga missed his scheduled court date, so a judge entered a default judgment in Seltzer's favor and ordered the rapper to pay $16,801.
Editors at TMZ.com report Tyga has paid a portion of the bill.
