As fans have likely heard, Braunwyn and Sean are currently facing eviction from their $6 million rental home in Newport Beach, California, after they allegedly failed to pay three months’ worth of rent. According to court documents, the landlord claims the former Real Housewives of Orange County couple owes her a total of $45,000.
Following news of the eviction suit, a rep for the pair said they were blindsided by the complaint, but they’re working to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.
“Sean and Braunwyn were surprised to find out about the unlawful detainer complaint through press, as they were not personally served. After consulting with legal counsel on this matter, they are doing everything they can to resolve it,” the rep told Us Weekly last week.
But, according to Radar Online, the recently separated couple admitted they’ve been struggling to stay afloat financially as they went without a paycheck for more than a year amid the pandemic.
“COVID has been hard on the family financially,” Braunwyn said in one video she posted. “We took a big hit, we are small business owners, so we struggled. We didn’t get a paycheck for a year and a half.”
The mother-of-seven went on to admit that they’re currently trying to crawl out of the financial “hole” they’ve found themselves in now that Sean is finally working again.
Though the landlord is asking a judge to allow her to kick the family out for their failure to pay, it seems Braunwyn already has plans to move to Hawaii with several of their children while Sean is planning to rent an apartment owned by Braunwyn’s girlfriend, Fernanda Rocha.
Nevertheless, it seems the eviction lawsuit is not the only issue the duo has faced over the last year as they were also sued after Sean was involved in a car accident that allegedly caused “grave injuries” to a couple. As a result, the couple filed suit against the former Bravo stars, but they seemingly settled out of court as the case has been dismissed.
