Mallika Sherawat and her French husband are facing eviction from their luxury Paris apartment. The couple owes nearly 80,000 euros in rent. A Parisian court is scheduled to rule on the dispute soon.
According to BBC, the landlord has requested the seizure of furniture and a luxury watch against the due rent for the 350-sqm apartment on the posh 16th arrondissement.
The couple’s lawyer however said that the couple is facing “temporary financial difficulties”, and stopping the rent was in protest against the attack on Sherawat in the building last year.
The landlord’s lawyer however countered it by pointing out that the couple can easily afford the rent.
“We are talking about 46 million euros in revenue and a fortune of 140 million. We are far from the tenant in difficulty,” he said.
