“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Alexis Bellino’s estranged husband Jim is being accused of screwing his former business partner out of $350,000 just days after he filed from divorce from the reality star.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Jim Bellino and his Sky Zone company were sued earlier this month by his former business partner, Jason Hughes.
Sky Zone is an indoor trampoline park in Orange County that was owned by Bellino. They opened the first location in Anaheim and would later open three other locations. Alexis often helped her then-husband promote the business.
Hughes claims he owned a 20% interest in the company, which he agreed to sell to Bellino last October for $635,000.
Bellino’s company agreed to pay Hughes $317,500 once the deal was signed and then pay him 16 installments of $19,843.75 per month. The deal contained a provision that stated if the company was sold to a third party, the remaining balance would become immediately due.
And that’s exactly what Hughes claims happened after Bellino sold the company this year to a third party. He says the former reality star refuses to pay him the outstanding balance owed on their deal.
Bellino is being sued for the unpaid balance of $350,000, plus interest.
As The Blast first reported, the Alexis Bellino and her soon-to-be ex have already agreed to split custody of their children 50/50. The couple got married back in 2005 and they have three children together: a 12-year-old son and 10-year-old twin girls.
