End of the battle? No way.
As RadarOnline.com reported, on June 19, Kenya filed a motion to have the eviction delayed, claiming that she never received the legal notice to appear for the hearing.
Two days later, the landlord responded to Kenya’s motion with a request to the court to expedite a new hearing based on several allegations.
In court papers exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com, the landlord claims that Kenya not only violated the terms of her lease — get this — on 15 occasions, but the former Miss USA also caused her “extreme emotional distress as the result of the delay [of the eviction] and the defendant’s [Kenya] malicious and intentional attacks” on her character.
The landlord’s motion claims that Kenya “made false statements about [her] in public” on two specific occasions.
“On or about June 7, 2013 and June 20, 2013, Defendant knowingly and maliciously made false statements about Plaintiff on the daytime TV talk show, Wendy Williams, in an effort to defame, intimidate and embarrass Plaintiff in the public,” the landlord’s motion reads.
“Defendant has utilized this [eviction] process as an attempt to maintain relevancy as a reality TV personality during the downturn of her career. Additionally, Defendant has attempted to prolong the eviction process in order to avoid public humiliation as an irresponsible tenant.”
According to the documents, the landlord alleges that Kenya violated her lease by paying her rent late multiple times, that Kenya defaulted on more than several utility bills and even made alterations to the house without the permission of the landlord.
“Plaintiff has received numerous calls from bill collectors throughout the term of the Lease as a result of Defendant’s delinquencies and defaults.”
The landlord’s papers add, “Plaintiff has suffered emotional [and financial] distress and has been unable to maintain normal sleeping habits.”
The papers also claim, “Plaintiff has been forced to shut down all social media accounts in order to avoid overwhelming contacts and requests from the public.”
Kenya will next be in court on July 9.
