Briana Renee is seemingly having serious money trouble.
The Little Women: LA star’s former manager has taken her to arbitration in an effort to recover more than $20,000 in unpaid services, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned from multiple sources.
Mother of two Renee, 36, was served papers on the Los Angeles set of the Lifetime reality show in January, an insider close to the matter confirmed.
But the two parties have yet to sit down together with their attorneys.
“Briana keeps requesting extensions, but she has to face reality soon,” a source said. “She isn’t allowed any more.”
A third source claims Renee’s controlling husband, Matt Grundhoffer, 40, is behind the legal mess.
“Briana dumped her manager and refused to abide by her contract when Matt started complaining about her many scheduled appearances,” the source explained. “He was jealous about all the attention she was receiving.”
Grundhoffer, who admitted to cheating and sexting stunning trans model Plastic Martyr while Renee was pregnant with their son Maverick, now 9 months, was also livid that he wasn’t welcome at many of the events.
“His behavior was so erratic, Briana’s manager told him not to come along,” the source added. “Obviously he wasn’t happy with that.”
As Radar reported last year, a furious Grundhoffer flipped out in public when he learned Renee would be making an appearance at male strip club Chippendales in 2015.
“He screamed, ‘Why would my girlfriend want to see naked men and penises!’ She doesn’t want to see that! She just wants to stay with me!” an eyewitness recalled.
Despite his repeated bad actions, Renee will “never, ever” leave her husband of two years, sources insisted to Radar last week.
“She can’t stand being alone,” a friend said.
