Chicago rapper Chief Keef may want to get a new accountant as reports claim he has been evicted from his Highland Park home in the Windy City. #Homeless

Details of Keef's eviction emerged across the Internet Tuesday (June 10).

The South Side rapper, whose legal name is Keith Cozart, was evicted Tuesday from his rented mansion in Highland Park, police said. It's the latest in a long list of legal troubles for Cozart -- though a criminal investigation connected to him in another North Shore community has been closed, authorities said Tuesday. Movers carried Cozart's belongings out of the custom two-story brick home to a moving truck as Lake County Sheriff's deputies looked on. The owner of the house, Bal Bansal, said Cozart, 18, had been a good tenant and his departure was voluntary, but police confirmed it was an eviction. (Chicago Tribune)

Reports also claim the eviction boiled down to him missing monthly payments.

According to court records, Cozart had been about $30,000 behind in rent payments as of March but had reached an agreement to catch up by April 20. But a final eviction order was filed May 7, records show. (Chicago Tribune)

Despite the seriousness, Keef hinted at having a new home.

"Wait till y'all see my House tho!," Keef tweeted June 10. (Chief Keef's Twitter)

Earlier this year, a shooting went down at his manager's Chicago home.

The house where a shooting took place in Northfield early today is rented by the manager of troubled rapper Chief Keef, said Viktor Mehta, who manages the property for the owner. It's unclear if the rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was present at the time of the shooting or otherwise involved. Northfield police said this afternoon that the shooting remains under investigation, and asked anyone with information to contact the department at 847-441-3842. No one has been arrested, a police spokeswoman said, but police said the shooting "appears to be isolated and we believe the community is safe." (Chicago Tribune)
