According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Beador has filed a lien against Bellino’s $4 million San Juan Capistrano mansion. The lien will allow her to collect the $137k if the property is sold. Beador is making moves to try and collect on the debt.
Last year, Jim Bellino sued Beador and costar Tamra Judge accusing them of defamation. He took issue with comments they made about his divorce and business on a podcast. Bellino sued seeking $1 million for alleged damages to his reputation.
Beador was successfully in getting all claims against her thrown out. The judge dismissed the reality star from the lawsuit completely. Beador was awarded a total of $137,340.25 for her attorney’s fees.
Recently, Beador filed documents demanding Bellino appear for a financial examination in court. She wants the judge to set a hearing for February 6, where Bellino will have to bring his financial statements and bank records. Beador wants to review Bellino’s finances to figure out a way to seize his assets to settle the debt.
In his lawsuit, Bellino accuses the reality stars of defaming his name by trashing his family on a podcast with comedian Heather McDonald. He accused the two of spreading lies about his divorce and claimed a person had been paralyzed at his trampoline business. He sued seeking $1 million for the damage the reality stars allegedly caused him.
Beador and Judge both denied the allegations and moved to dismiss the case. Tamra Judge has yet to be dismissed from the lawsuit.
In June, Bellino sued comedian Heather McDonald over the same podcast episode. He accused her of conspiring with Beador and Judge to defame him on the show. McDonald denies all allegations of wrongdoing. Both cases are still ongoing.
