In the never-ending war between Gretchen Rossi and Jay Photoglou, the Real Housewives of Orange County star has been forced to pay her ex’s legal fees – for the second time.
RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained a copy of the check for $22,375.05.
Rossi, who has previously denied ever having a romantic relationship with Photoglou despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, lost a drawn-out court battle after a civil harassment order she filed against Jay was dismissed and he won attorney’s fees.
Loathed to give Jay the money, Gretchen handed him a check for the right amount in May of this year – but made the check payable to Jay’s lawyers and the Franchise Tax Board, claiming Jay owed the Board money.
That, of course, only made the battle heat up between the exes and now Jay has the check and it’s in his name!
“The check speaks for itself,” he told RadarOnline.com, obviously pleased to collect.
But it’s not over, of course. The two are still suing each other.
