Blac Chyna is hitting back against claims she damaged her last rental property and is countersuing her landlord for $70,000.
via Page Six:
Chyna, 32, claims her landlord, Michael Kremerman, owes her more than $20,000 from her security deposit and is now asking for $50,000, or twice the original $25,000 deposit, according to court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by Page Six.
She also denies Kremerman’s allegations that she damaged the rental property. The Lashed salon owner alleges in the documents the only deductions that could be taken from her security deposit are repairs for an “accidentally damaged sink ($1,100), remaining rent due for November 2018 ($3,360); and cost of a popcorn machine ($231.02).”
Her attorney, Lynne Ciani, told Page Six on Thursday that Chyna plans to countersue her former landlord for his “fraudulent claim” that she owed him “unpaid rent at a time when he no longer even owned the rental property.”
Ciani said Chyna’s court documents prove Kremerman “tried to ‘have his cake and eat it too’” by charging her for unpaid rent despite the fact that he sold the rental property for $4.55 million in March 2019, according to Zillow.
Chyna is set to appear in court against Kremerman on June 26. Kremerman’s attorney didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Kremerman first sued Chyna in April 2019, claiming she bailed on her lease five months early and failed to pay rent. He claimed Chyna owed $55,546 for the missing rent but subtracted her $25,000 deposit from the total; however, he added on $18,000 in damages.
In January 2020, a judge ordered Chyna to pay Kremerman $72,000 because she failed to respond to the lawsuit.
Chyna and her ex-Tyga seem to always have difficulties with landlords — don’t they?
