According to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards, the truth always has a way of rising to the top. But her tagline seems to only apply to Lisa Vanderpump and whether or not she planted a story on Dorit Kemsley about #puppygate. Yawn. The tagline should apply to all the real-life drama viewers weren’t allowed to see.
Such as Dorit and PK Kemsley being sued by someone who claimed to own part of their swimwear line. Or Erika Jayne’s husband Tom Girardi being sued for not repaying a loan and using the money to fund
Erika’s glam squad a lavish lifestyle. And Kyle’s husband, Mauricio Umansky, being slapped with his own $32 million dollar lawsuit. What truth is rising to the top on that one Kyle?
Of course, Kyle isn’t speaking up. She’s too busy making breakfast her daughter won’t eat or clipping her husband’s toenails. However, Mauricio took time away from his at home pedicure to speak up on the matter. According to an article from The Blast, Mauricio wants “the lawsuit accusing him of fraud over the sale of a $32 million Malibu mansion be dismissed.”
Sweetwater Malibu LLC filed the lawsuit against Mauricio. That company is run by the Vice President of Equatorial Guinea, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue. Teodoro’s mansion ended up being seized by the government because he “allegedly used funds stolen from his home country.”
Mauricio then sold the home to another man named Mauricio for $32.5 million. Narcissistic much? And Teodoro believes that Mauricio actually “received much higher side-offers.”
Additionally, Mauricio “allegedly never disclosed he had partnered with the buyer to purchase the property.”
A year later, Mauricio sold the same home for $69.9 million. Property value is high in L.A., but I seriously doubt a home that expensive would double in one year. Which is why Mauricio is being accused “of breaching his duties as a real estate agent.”
Oh and “self-dealing and earned secret profits.” Lisa must have manipulated him!
Mauricio fired back and denied all allegations of fraud. He claimed that Teodoro’s “lawsuit is nothing more than an attempt to take back the proceeds he forfeited to the United States.”
He also added, “By suing Defendants and making unfounded and baseless allegations, Plaintiff repeats a strategy Obiang has used before unlawfully enriching himself by using shell companies to take money from innocent parties.”
The VP might have done shady dealings before. Still, Mauricio selling the home at double the price within a year seems super shady to me. The truth might not rise to the top in Beverly Hills, but it might at a courthouse in LA.
