Kai has shared several new emails and documents over the past few days. As we’d prepare to share it, something new would pop up. So, I’m going to summarize up here and paste the rest in full down below for those of you who love the nitty gritty “total package.”
After the judge ordered him to pay Melissa and Joe almost $30,000 in fees, rent and attorney fees, Patterson is ready to leave the Gorga mansion. Kai attempted to persuade Joe to accept a termination agreement that would get him off the hook for both the rental and the purchase of Casa de Beaver, but Joe is not on board. Patterson even found a new rental, but is stuck until the Gorgas agree to let him go – but he may be leaving anyway.
Kai claims he is giving up on the Gorga mansion because he has received estimates from contractors on what the repairs will cost. He claims the repairs will cost between $300,000-400,000! He’s sending Joe a notice that he’s terminating their agreement and leaving the premises and feels he’s well within his rights to do so without further issue.
Joe andMelissa Gorga have been trying to stop the financial bleed that is their former mansion by booting Kai from the premises for nonpayment of rent. The Gorgas have been struggling financially as they have to continue paying mortgage payments on their Montville home, plus the rental costs at their current home in Franklin Lakes, plus paying for attorneys (three so far) and most likely forking over for major repairs to the mansion.
Kai shared a statement this afternoon after the judge ruled – and it sounds like the final ruling was in his favor.
Joe and Melissa Gorga are continuing to battle their tenant and prospective owner of their Montville mansion in eviction proceedings. It’s been back and forth for a couple months with the Gorgas vs. Kai Patterson. Kai was ordered to move out, but then had it reversed when a judge uncovered the Gorgas had never legally declared the property as a rental. Kai believe that is because they wanted to deceive people into believing they had sold their dilapidating mansion instead of renting it out.
The unresolved issues resulted in a trial, which is supposed to conclude tomorrow. Yesterday Joe testified in court in an attempt to evict Kai stating his tenant owes $192,557 in unpaid rent. Kai argued that he was withholding rent because of incomplete repairs (including massive plumbing problems) which Joe promised to make.
Trying to prove he was like all serious yo, Joe toted along not one, not two, but THREE attorneys in an attempt to remove Kai from the property so Melissa can move out of her “disgusting” rental and move back into the mansion she once couldn’t stand. How are they affording all these legal fees, I wonder? The garbage business?
In a statement from Patterson’s spokesperson, he reiterates that the judge adjourned the eviction case because Joe had failed to register the Montville mansion as a rental. Kai says that Joe claimed in court that he had a friend at the zoning office who told him he didn’t have to register it, but Kai says Joe couldn’t remember that “friend’s” name when the judge asked for a name.
Patterson then blasts them, claiming the reason they didn’t register the home as a rental is because they didn’t want anyone to know that the mansion hadn’t actually sold for the full asking price. In Melissa’s defense, the house was being sold at $3.8 million, just not all at once in a ‘conventional’ type sale… “In August of 2013 when the Gorgas and Mr. Patterson executed the purchase and rental agreements, the Gorgas told the media they had sold their home for the full asking price, but never represented there was a rental agreement that also was also part of the purchase agreement. After falsely represented the home was sold, Joe and Melissa Gorga did not register the home as a rental property because it would have immediately exposed their home was also being leased under the purchase agreement.”
Melissa backtracks and now wishes she hadn’t said that she was moving away because of sister-in-law Teresa Giudice. “So as you already know, we moved to Franklin Lakes last September and you will see us in our rental home this season. We bought a property there and are building a house a couple miles away from where we are renting. Watching this episode makes me think about two things that I wish I could go back and erase. The first was making that statement about why we wanted to move and the second was not listening to my gut and going through with the sale of our Montville home to the person who bought it.”
Kai claims that things didn’t go in Melissa and Joe’s favor as several reports claimed after their court hearing last week. He shared the court order and some additional information with us.
Kai says the court hearing wasn’t anything like the news reports claimed. “I got a fair and favorable order by the Judge yesterday. The Judge never said or alleged that Mr. Gorga was getting their property back in 17 days, or the Judge would have ordered an eviction yesterday that would require the removal in 17 days. Nowhere in the order was an eviction granted.”
A judge ruled that Kai Patterson can stay in the Gorga house for another 17 days if he coughs up $25,000. According to the Gorga attorney, Patterson owes them more than $180,000. So, the eviction proceedings are delayed for a few more days.
The two sides went back and forth and Gorga’s attorney made it clear that Melissa and Joe want the eviction done as quickly as possible so they can move back into the mansion! The Gorgas want to get back in the house and enroll their kids in school for the upcoming year. Hmm..guess that “Dream Home” isn’t happening anytime soon.
