Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards reportedly refuses to pay her tax bills and is living in a modest Los Angeles apartment amid her financial woes.
The Sun uncovered two tax liens filed against the Bravo star in the past couple of years.
According to court documents, the State of California accuses Kim of owing a total of $70,021.60 for the years 2015 & 2016.
A second lien filed in July 2020 says Kim owes $20,762.08. The grand total for her tax debt comes to $90,783.68. Kim is currently renting a 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom, apartment in Encino.
Her sister Kyle lives down the street in a million-dollar mansion. The apartment is a far cry from the former mansion she lived in during filming of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She was kicked out of the rental pad after she was unable to afford to payments.
She lost her former home around the same time she checked into rehab for 30 days. It was the start of a rough couple of years which included multiple arrests for Kim.
Things got so bad, Kim started sleeping in her car due to her family cutting her off. She eventually got clean and was able to move into a swanky apartment.
Kim has made guest appearances on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but hasn’t had a steady job in years. She is set to release her memoir The Whole Truth: The Reality of It All in October.
As Radar previously reported, Kim isn’t the only one in the family experiencing legal issues. Her sister Kathy Hilton is set to face off with her former housekeeper later this year.
Paris and Nicky’s mom says the ex-employee stole from her while working at the family’s Beverly Hills mansion. The housekeeper accused Kathy of failing to provide her with proper meal breaks and refusing to pay her overtime. Kathy denies all allegations of wrongdoing.
The trial is scheduled to start on November 2, 2021.
Kim’s other sister Kyle Richards’s family had their own share of court battles. Her husband Mauricio Umansky and his real estate company The Agency faced a federal lawsuit accusing them of improper business practices during the sale of a Malibu mansion.
