Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards' week just went from bad to worse! RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the 50-year-old rehab patient has lost her $1million court case from dog bite victim and former family friend, Kay Rozario.

As Radar reported, Rozario was mauled by Richards' pit bull, Kingsley, while staying as a guest at her Beverly Hills home last year. She sued earlier this year, and according to court documents obtained by Radar, the 80-year-old was just awarded a default judgment for general damages in the amount of $8,083.53.

Rozario had asked the judge to make a ruling on April 21, when Richards failed to file any response to her complaint.

"No opposition was filed in connection with Plaintiff's application," the judge noted. "After considering the materials submitted and the case file, the Court hereby GRANTS Plaintiff's Application."

The court documents also state, "The causes of action are primarily based on Kim's representations that her dog was 'sweet' and 'cuddly' when in fact the dog had a propensity to bite people."

As Radar previously reported, Rozario was seeking more than $1 million in damages from Richards for the attack. The judge said, however that the final award was significantly lower due to the fact that the "only ascertainable amount Plaintiff submitted in her declaration was her medical bills which total $4083.50."

Rozario claimed she had a fear of dogs since the attack that caused her emotional distress, but the judge noted that she did not submit any therapeutic records to that effect.

However, this is not the only victim that the pit bull Kingsley has attacked.

Richards, who was just charged for the incident in which she kicked a cop while intoxicated at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge, is Kyle, over Kingsley's attack on Kyle's daughter, 19-year-old Alexia Umansky, in November 2014.

Story developing.
