Braunwyn Windham-Burke and her estranged husband, Sean Burke, are being sued for $45,000.
Braunwyn Windham-Burke may be moving to Hawaii, but she still has some business to take care of in California.
The former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star, 43, and her estranged husband, Sean Burke, were slapped with a lawsuit Monday claiming they owe $45,000 in back rent for their Newport Beach mansion, per court documents obtained by Page Six.
The civil suit alleged that the couple had signed an 18-month lease and promised to pay their landlord $15,000 per month for the home, which was featured on the Bravo reality show and is now up for sale for $6,795,000.
The lease began in January 2020, and Windham-Burke and Burke have fallen behind on three months’ rent, the documents claimed.
As part of the suit, the pair were given 15 days to either cough up the cash for their rent or vacate the home. However, it appears they were blindsided by the papers.
“Sean and Braunwyn were surprised to find out about the unlawful detainer complaint through the press, as they were not personally served,” their rep told Page Six in a statement Thursday. “After consulting with legal counsel on this matter, they are doing everything they can to resolve it.”
Earlier this week, Windham-Burke and Burke announced that they are embarking on a “trial run separation” for the summer, with the reality star taking their children to live in Hawaii for six or seven weeks while the business executive stays behind in Newport Beach. He will live in a home owned by a friend of his estranged wife’s girlfriend, Fernanda Rocha.
Windham-Burke and Burke have been married for over two decades, but she came out as gay in December 2020 and began dating women outside of their marriage.
She dated her first girlfriend, Kris, from December to April and is currently in a relationship with Rocha, who is a friend of former “RHOC” star Tamra Judge.
