Karlie Redd of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” is locked in a legal battle with a Houston-based dealership over the repossession of her Porsche Panamera.
Redd has filed a suit claiming that two men broke into her home and jacked her White Porsche Panamera (the one she said her man bought her last year) … well, the reality of the situation seems to be that Redd wasn’t making payments and the dealership took it back.
Man or no man, somebody didn’t make the payments and apparently the dealership sent over repo men to recover the pricey vehicle.
Redd has now filed a lawsuit claiming that Vanderhall Exotics of Houston owes her money because, despite her lagging payments, over half the cost of the vehicle was paid.
The reality starlet reportedly purchased the base model 2014 Porsche Panamera for $57,397 and claims in legal documents that made over $43,300 worth of payments, but on Feb. 28, 2017, around 2:53 a.m., the men forced their way into her garage, according to TMZ:
In the suit, she says they also got into her house, stole an unspecified amount of jewelry and clothing … and then bolted with the Porsche. Karlie says she called police and, through an app, traced the car back to the dealer in Texas.
The dealership claims the car was lawfully repossessed, but Karlie strongly disagrees. She’s not demanding the return of the car, but she is suing to get back all the money she’d paid on it.
While she is weighing her legal options, Redd might want to consider suing the man who bought the car but couldn’t afford to pay for it.
Redd, who spent the balance of her upbringing in Trinidad and Harlem, is one of the most popular cast members on LHHATL. Born Karlie Lewis, Redd joined this ultra-popular reality show in 2012 and has entertained audiences with her volatile on-again, off-again relationship with rapper Yung Joc.
