Empire Star Bryshere Gray Sued By Landlords
The Empire star, Star Bryshere’s landlords claim the “Empire” star’s dog caused some damage in his apartment, and they are suing the actor for the cost of the repairs.
However, a representative for the actor says the suit is unnecessary because the actor will take care of it as reported by TMZ.
According to some legal documents, the landlords said they rented Gray a condo inside their four-unit Chicago complex back in August 2019.
They accused Gray, among other things, of leaving his dog inside the condo for extended periods of time. They also claim the dog was left unattended in common areas in the complex and urinated and defecated all over the place.
The landlords claim the urine and feces significantly damaged the hardwood floors, stairs, and other parts of the property.
The landlords further said Gray jumps in and out of windows, clogged the toilets by flushing down condoms, smoked weed in the place when smoking is not allowed under the lease, and engaged in unsanitary activity including, but not limited to, eating breakfast in one of the bathrooms.
The total cost of repairs according to the landlords would be $26,120. The landlords say they reached out to Gray’s team to settle the dispute but claim their demands fell on deaf ears. So, they’re now suing for the damages and want $7,000 on top of that to cover their attorneys’ fees.
In Charlie’s words, who represents the actor:
We have reached out to Gray’s team and his manager, Gray was diagnosed with ADHD some years ago, and unfortunately, this is a result of that. He’s a great person and it will be taken care of. It will be handled. There is money inside of his security deposit that should rectify whatever issues the landlord has. It is sad that the landlord has chosen this way to handle this but we will do what is needed to make sure it is taken care of.
There are pictures attached to the lawsuit showing the alleged damages, including the alleged plate of breakfast in the bathroom.
