“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Camille Grammer‘s ex-boyfriend wants to ban private text messages between the reality star and Kim Richards from their upcoming court trial, claiming they paint him in a bad light.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Dimitri Charalambopoulos is demanding Grammer not be allowed to introduce certain text messages and other communications during the trial.
He says, “Some of these exhibits constitute e-mails between Grammer and other individuals discussing Charalambopoulos in a negative tone months and years before the incident and/or irrelevant to the incident that is the basis of this case.”
Charalambopoulos says some of what Grammer wants to present is only listed “to put before the jury negative character evidence concerning Charalamboulos which is improper.”
The judge has yet to rule with the trial set to begin next month.
Back in 2014, the former “RHOBH” star and Charalambopoulos slapped each other with dueling lawsuits. Camille accused Dimitri of assaulting her in a Texas hotel room back in 2013, while she was recovering from cancer surgery.
Dimitri sued her claiming she fabricated the whole story and demanded damages for defamation.
Last year, the judge threw out the majority of Dimitri’s claims against Camille but allowed some claims to continue. Camille filed docs demanding he pay her $121,000 in attorney fees, due to her winning her motion, before the case moved forward. The judge agreed and granted her motion.
Dimitri explained he had no money to pay the $121k judgment but said he would immediately when money came in. The judge didn’t care and put the case on pause until he paid in full.
The case had no movement for several months due to Dimitri not paying up on the $121,000.
Then in August 2018, Dimitri filed docs in the case stating he has obtained a guarantee deposit bond in the amount of $121,307.66, which will satisfy the court order to allow the case to be reopened.
As a result of him obtaining the bond, the judge reopened the case and their dueling lawsuits were back on.
A trial is set to start next month in Texas after it had been pushed back following Camille Grammer’s Malibu mansion being burned down in the Woolsey Fire.
