Sources close to the reality star tell Radar, Kelly admits dealing with a legal case that was brought by the City of Newport Beach after the animal had multiple incidents with strangers.
As we first reported, the city brought a case against the RHOC star and her ex-husband Michael to determine if the dog was “potentially dangerous.”
In court documents, Kelly's dog was accused of having multiple run-ins with strangers on the beach between 2015 to 2019.
On multiple occasions, the police were called after Chloe reportedly bit someone. Often, the damage was only ripped clothing but on occasion, an alleged victim claimed to have suffered severe bruising and cuts.
In 2017, Chloe allegedly attacked a woman named Deborah Webb (photos of alleged injuries above) while at Corona Del Mar. The animal was accused of biting the woman on her right shin. Animal Control officials noted they observed several puncture wounds on Webb.
A hearing was held in the case in March. We're told it was held via a zoom phone call but Kelly was not required to attend. During the hearing, the court found Chloe to be "potentially dangerous" but did not take any further action.
Based on the law, the city could force Kelly to take out insurance for the pet if she refused to abandon the animal. It appears nothing happened to Chloe and she is still with the Bravo star.
Sources tell us, Kelly dealt with the situation at the time but the case dragged on for months due to the pandemic. The reality star has told her close friends, “Chloe has aged peacefully since the alleged incidents and is a gentle, loving dog.”
An insider tells us Chloe, who is a Bijan poodle, is 10 and in poor health. At the moment, she is overweight due to Addison’s disease but loves her dog brother, Benji.
