Jacqueline Laurita is accused of delaying her $7.8 million lawsuit, and she has lost her legal team. Radar Online reports on Thursday that the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star and her husband are dealing with a complicated bankruptcy case. Laurita’s legal team claims they have not been paid for their services, but a creditor believes this is a tactic to delay the lawsuit.
The Lauritas were originally accused of using the money from their Signature Apparel company in illegal ways to fund their lifestyles. The family filed for bankruptcy despite claiming to earn $250 million over the course of four years. Both the housewife and her husband have denied misusing the company funds, but records show money was spent on cars, travel, credit cards and other expenses for the entire family.
The lawsuit has been delayed several times, and the loss of the legal team has added a new problem. However, creditors do not believe the legal team would abandon the Lauritas after working with them for several years, so they are claiming this is another tactic to prevent them from getting the $7.8 million. The family has been asked to find new representation quickly and show proof in court because the case has been stalled on too many occasions.
The housewife is facing other problems in addition to the legal battle, and she recently revealed she had a cyst removed from her neck. She explains it started as a small pea-shaped lump on her neck but grew to the size of a marble. The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star was able to have it removed successfully by a doctor without any complications. The Laurita family is not letting the lawsuit slow them down, and the housewife’s husband has a new company, blk Beverages, that he has been promoting.
