La Toya Jackson has been ordered to pay $360,000 over an unpaid rent bill her company allegedly refused to pay for years.
As The Blast first reported, La Toya’s entertainment company, Ja-Tail Enterprises, was sued by the real estate firm Douglas Emmett.
They accused MJ’s sister of leasing an office space back in 2011, where she agreed to pay $11,618.10 per month with increases per year. But they claim she defaulted on the lease and owed them $324,000 in unpaid rent.
Douglas Emmet sued seeking the unpaid rent, plus interest and damages.
La Toya blew off the legal battle for months and Douglas Emmet pleaded for the judge to award them a default judgment.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the judge came back and sided with the real estate company and ordered La Toya’s Ja-Tail Enterprises to pay a total of $324,000 in unpaid rent, interest in the amount of $26,673.68, attorney fees in the amount of $8,902 and other costs for a total of $359,575.78.
According to their website, Ja-Tail — which lists La Toya as a founder — has several different entertainment divisions, including music, films, and television.
