Just as the former The Real Housewives of Orange County star is fighting an order forcing him to pay Shannon Beador’s legal fees in a defamation suit, RadarOnline.com has learned he’s once again slashed the price on his mega mansion – and has now chopped nearly $1 million off the initial asking price!
Check out the mega mansion in this RadarOnline.com gallery and learn why Jim may not be in a giving mood!
According to Trulia, the 4,539 sq ft, 4 bed, 4 bath home in Dana Point, Calif. is currently listed for $5.18 million.
It was first listed in November 2018 for $5.9 million, before being slashed on January 8 to $5.85 million. Just a few weeks later, on January 28, a much bigger price cut brought the home down to $5.595 million.
Everything Must Go
With still no sale, another $100,000 was chopped off on February 15th, bringing the price down to $5.495 million.
Amid the mansion price freefall, Jim was locked in a nasty lawsuit with RHOC stars Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador, suing them for $1 million for defamation.
As Radar previously reported, Jim sued the RHOC ladies after they claimed he was a "shady mother**ker" on Heather McDonald's podcast.
Refusal To Pay
Now The Real Housewives of Orange County star’s ex-husband doesn’t want to give Shannon the $220,000 in legal bills a judge ruled Jim owes her after she was dismissed from the defamation lawsuit.
Too Much Money
Jim is contending that the $220k legal bill is excessive and unreasonable and has asked the judge to order that he doesn’t need to pay Shannon anything.
Failing that, Jim wants to slash the bill by 80%, so he would only have to cough up about $44,000, Radar reported.
