“Million Dollar Listing New York” Star Ryan Serhant has been hit with some legal problems, as a man has sued the reality star accusing him of fraud.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Serhant has been named as a defendant in a newly filed lawsuit out of New York. A man, named Aaron Coppelson, has filed a summons with notice against the reality star/luxury real estate broker and the real estate company, Nest Seekers International LLC, along with financial advisor Elad Rahamim and Wells Fargo Advisors.
The legal documents note that the Coppelson is suing for, “Fraud, Mistake, Breach of Contract, Uniform Commercial Code, and Unjust Enrichment.”
Coppelson states that he is seeking monetary damages for the claims, the amount of which he has yet to determine.
The details of the allegations are unclear, as Coppelson has only filed the notice of the forthcoming complaint.
The man warns if Serhant and the other defendants don’t appear in court, he will go after them for a default judgment.
Serhant has been a star on “Million Dollar Listing: New York” since season one of the Bravo reality show. The reality star even got his own four-part mini-series titled “Ryan’s Wedding” which chronicled his wedding to Emily Bechrakis.
The show launched in 2012 and focuses on luxury real estate agents and the property owners they represent.
The rest of the cast includes Fredrik Eklund (who has been on with Serhant since the start), Luis Ortiz, Steve Gold and new cast mate Tyler Whitman.
Season 8 of the reality show premieres on August 1, 2019.
