Kenya Moore was recently evicted from her 6-bedroom, 6-bath Atlanta mansion, and now she’s firing back with a lawsuit.
As we reported earlier, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star was served eviction papers by landlord Conya Weems-Dillon for falling $848 short on her May rent. Weems-Dillon also filed a lawsuit, claiming the beauty queen broke several terms of their lease agreement and still owes back rent.
According to TMZ, Moore is shooting back with a suit of her own, countersuing for wrongful eviction, slander and emotional distress. She claims her May and June rent was paid in full and Weems-Dillon is “lying and plotting to intimidate her into moving out.”
In the suit, the reality star also alleges that her former landlord made up the lease conflict to sell he story to the media.
Weems-Dillon’s legal team has yet to respond to the allegations.
