According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Jim Bellino is objecting to the amount Beador is demanding he pay.
He claims the $220k legal bill is excessive and unreasonable and is asking the judge to order that he has to pay NOTHING. In the alternative, he is requesting to cut that bill by 80%, which would bring it down to around $44,000.
Bellino takes issue with Beador’s lawyers only providing a general description of their work done for the case, but says there is not enough detail.
A judge has yet to rule.
Back in February, Beador filed docs seeking for the court to order Bellino to pay her $220,894.55 attorney fees after she successfully defended herself in the $1 million lawsuit he filed against her and Tamra Judge.
The judge dismissed all claims against Beador, noting that Bellino failed to establish a probability of prevailing against Beador on the defamation and other claims, and as a result, the “complaint is stricken in its entirety against Ms. Beador. The clerk shall enter judgment for Ms. Beador.”
Tamra Judge, who was also a defendant in the lawsuit, has not been dismissed and the case against her is continuing on.
Last year, Jim Bellino sued Beador and Judge, accusing them of defaming his good name by trashing his family on a podcast with comedian Heather McDonald.
He accused the reality stars of spreading lies that his divorce was fake and that his trampoline business had left customers paralyzed and claimed, “he’s going to jail.”
Jim sued seeking in excess of $1 million for the damage Tamra and Shannon allegedly caused his life.
The reality stars fired back, demanding the case against them be dismissed. Both denied defaming Jim and said all of their statements were rooted in truth.
