Johnson was accused of stealing $1.2 million from the Juice Wrlld company, according to the suit, and is being held in the Ventura County Jail.
According the suit filed Monday in California Superior Court, Juice Inc. has been plagued by “false allegations and fraudulent practices” for more than two years.
