AceShowbiz - Todrick Hall is being dragged to the court. The season 3 runner-up of "Celebrity Big Brother" has been sued for $60,000 by his landlords, Avi Lavian and Orna Lavian, over unpaid rent for a mansion he previously claimed he bought.
On Thursday, March 31, Us Weekly reported that the owners of the lavish mansion filed the court documents on March 29. In the paperwork, it's stated that they first served the 36-year-old reality star with a pay or quit notice on March 3.
According to the documents, Todrick agreed to pay $30,000 a month for the five-bedroom and eight-bathroom property in Sherman Oaks, California. In addition to the past-due rent of $60,000 for February and March this year, the landlords asked for reasonable attorney fees, forfeiture of the agreement, damages at the rate of $1,000 per day and "all other relief the court deems just and reasonable."
Todrick previously showed off the home as his own in a YouTube video titled "Bought My DREAM Home!!! FULL TOUR", which he uploaded back in February 2021. The video has since garnered over 500,000 views and 30,000 likes.
"I have been wanting to buy a home for a very long time and this is a dream come true," the singer/dancer said in the 11-minute clip before taking his followers on a tour of the mansion. "I saw over 50 homes and decided to get this one. When I saw this one, I fell in love."
Todrick also often talked about the house during his time on "Celebrity Big Brother", which aired in February. On the show, he came in second place after receiving backlash from his fellow players, which caused him to cancel all of his exit press interviews following the finale.
"I haven't avoided press because I'm afraid to comment on my experience on Big Brother," Todrick wrote in a March 12 Instagram post. The season 9 contestant of "American Idol" added that he wants "to protect" himself and his mental health "to make sure [he] could actually get [his] show on stage and fulfill [his] obligations to [his] fans and [his] PAID employees."
Todrick later noted, "I have no desire to prove myself to people who were never rooting for me to begin with, but I do want to say to my fans that I will be commenting on my experience once the show is open, because I feel you deserve it." He also thanked those who supported him during his appearance on the CBS show. "It was the most difficult thing I've ever done, but I'm glad I did it," he concluded his post.
