Kim Richards Forced to Pay Dog Bite Victim!

Celebrities leaving Craig's

The day of reckoning has come for Kingsley’s first (reported) bite victim, 80-year old former family friend of Kim RichardsKay Rozario.

Rozario filed suit after she was bitten on her hand – reportedly down to the bone – by Kim’s pit bull while staying at her house back in March 2014. Although she was seeking restitution in the amount of roughly $1 million, Rozario was ultimately awarded only $8,083.53. This amount was $4 grand higher than the cost of her medical bills – $4,083.53 – which Kim refused to pay, thus sparking the initial lawsuit. The judge awarded a moderately higher amount because he said Rozario “deserved some more cash for emotional distress and trauma after the attack,” according to TMZ.

True to form, Kim never responded to Rozario’s lawsuit, so the judge was forced to enter a default judgment.

Sister Kyle Richards’ daughter, Alexia, was also a Kingsley bite victim in November of last year – an incident (among others) that prompted the sisters to stop speaking for months before the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion taping brought them back together. And we all know how that went down. 

Kingsley was featured in Kim’s RHOBH scenes sporadically throughout last season as a “rambunctious” dog in need of training, but Bravo-hired dog trainer David Utter spoke publicly back in March about the pit bull’s true nature. “Behind the scenes I was hired by Bravo to fix the dog’s aggression,” said Utter, but “In front of the camera the public was told I was working with the animal based on chewing sunglasses and shoes. They really failed to show how the dog unprovoked, attacked me and came to rip off my face and I had no choice but to defend myself.”

So, what’s become of Kingsley these days? At the RHOBH reunion, Kim professed her undying love for Kingsley – “like a child,” she said, and wanted him to continue living at home with her. But according to TMZ, the pit bull is at a “private training facility.”

(Psssst…that’s where Kim is too! Wink wink!)
