American rapper Soulja Boy has been ordered to pay his ex-girlfriend Kayla Myers $235,900 equivalent to 32 million Kenyan shillings due to the assault and kidnapping case she filed against the rapper in 2020.

In court documents obtained by Billboard, the rapper, born DeAndre Way, must pay Kayla Myers $1,800 for "mental health expenses," while the remaining $234,100 is for "physical and mental pain and suffering."

According to Myers' original complaint, the alleged assault and kidnapping occurred at the rapper's Malibu home after a party in February 2019 and reportedly lasted six hours.

Myers claimed she tried to leave but one of Soulja Boy's assistants stopped her from doing so. She also claimed that Soulja held a gun to her head, made many threats against her and at one point hit her with the gun.

"He held a gun to Ms. Myers' head and told her that she was going to die that night and she wasn't going to make it home," the complaint read. "He also instructed his assistant to take her to the garage and tie her up with tape."

According to Billboard, this wasn't the only hot water that Soulja Boy had gotten himself into in the past few years.

In March 2019, the rapper was arrested for violating his probation stemming from a 2014 weapons conviction.

The following month, he received 240 days in jail and 265 hours of community service. In March, the "Crank That" star was one of the celebrities charged by the Securities and Exchange Commission with promoting cryptocurrencies "without disclosing that they were paid to do so and the amount of their compensation," according to an SEC filing.
