In 2013 while she was recovering from cancer surgery, the former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star reported that Dimitri, her boyfriend of two years following her divorce from Kelsey Grammer, had assaulted her. In response to her allegations, Dimitri filed a lawsuit against Camille accusing her of malicious persecution and defamation of character.

The basis of Dimitri’s suit being that, despite Camille going to police and providing photographs of the alleged domestic violence, charges were never filed against him due to lack of evidence. Furthermore he accused Camille of fabricating her allegations because she believed he was cheating on her. Dimitri accused Camille of lying to police by reporting that he violated a restraining order against her. Camille denied all of his accounts.
In January of last year, a Texas judge denied Camille’s request to have Dimitri’s suit dismissed because he was able to provide evidence that Camille was communicating with tabloid journalists to provide details about his alleged assault against her. Camille defended her actions by insisting she never made untrue statements to the press and her recounts coincided with details she had previously provided police.
However, the judge also dismissed 4 of Dimitri’s 7 claims against Camille. The Daily Mail reports that the judge upheld his claims of malicious prosecution and defamation as a result of comments Camille made against Dimitri on Dr. Oz and social media.
However, Camille was also awarded more than $119,000 towards her legal fees, plus an additional $2,300 for other litigation expenses.
The judge is still deciding whether to dismiss the remainder of Dimitri’s claims against Camille. Stay tuned!
