Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump and friend Mohamed Hadid have blasted Brandi Glanville’s allegations in a court battle that is on-going against former RHOM star Joanna Krupa.
Vanderpump and Hadid have denied ever telling Glanville that Krupa was having an affair with Hadid, and they claim to have never said that Krupa’s private parts smelled.
Brandi previously claimed that Lisa and Mohamed, who have been friends for more than ten years, told her at Vanderpump’s home that Hadid had been cheating on Yolanda Foster with Krupa during a two-year affair.
Glanville and Krupa’s court battle first kicked off in January 2015 after Glanville mentioned the alleged affair in an interview with Andy Cohen and spoke about the smell of Krupa’s private parts.
Krupa first sued Glanville in Miami Court. She accused her of slander and emotional distress demanding monetary damages for the damage she did to her reputation. Since then, Mohamed has said that Joanna had zero to do with his marriage to Yolanda ending.
On August 18, Krupa filed court documents to amend her complaint to seek punitive damages from Glanville, revealing that both Vanderpump, Yolanda Hadid Foster and Mohamed Hadid all said Glanville’s allegations are not true. Krupa said that the three key witnesses deny the story Glanville claims as her defense.
Hadid stated that he never informed Glanville of an affair between him and Krupa, and that he never made comments about Krupa’s private parts. Vanderpump also says she never had a conversation with Glanville regarding the above. Krupa claimed that Glanville changed her story several times, and she hopes to amend her complaint to seek punitive damages, which under Florida law allows a jury to award her up to $2 million in damages.
Transcripts of Vanderpump and Hadid’s depositions were filed as part of Krupa’s motion, and reveal that both deny Glanville’s story of the conversation between the three of them, as obtained by The Daily Mail.
Vanderpump claimed in her deposition that Glanville is known for her reputation of making false and malicious statements about people. She mentioned in her statement that she is no longer friends with Brandi. “I think through trial and tribulations, really reality television, and things she did and said here just – kind of ended the relationship.”
Lisa also blasted Brandi for comments she made on her podcast, where she said Vanderpump lived in the Valley and even filed for bankruptcy. She said all the claims are lies that were detrimental to her and her husband’s reputations.
When asked about the alleged conversation with Hadid and Glanville over Krupa, two which said that Hadid never said a bad word about Krupa and only spoke about how nice she was. Lisa claimed that no comments were ever made about Krupa’s vagina or her having an affair with Hadid. She said that she doesn’t believe that Hadid even had a sexual relationship with Krupa, claiming that they are friends and always have been. She added that she doesn’t believe that Krupa should be pursuing a lawsuit, adding that she believes that nothing Glanville says has credence or credibility. Vanderpump said that Glanville’s allegations that she got her fired from Real Housewives are false. “I’ve been a victim of a lot of her lies. I don’t have the power to have anybody fired, and if I did, she would have been fired the year before.”
During Hadid’s deposition, he blasted Glanville’s story and denies any of it. He claimed that he has never spoken about Krupa to Glanville and that he wasn’t even aware that they knew each other. When asked if Krupa had anything to do with his marriage to Hadid Foster ending, Hadid said, ‘absolutely not’. The judge has yet to make a decision on Krupa’s motion to add punitive damages.
Last month, Glanville claimed Krupa’s lawsuit was nothing more than an attempt by Krupa to keep her name in the headlines and help her her land a spot on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, due to the Miami spin off being canceled years before because of low ratings.
Now, Brandi is demanding Joanna hand over her tax returns. Glanville says she is demanding tax documents from the year prior to the alleged defamatory statements and the two years following to the interview she gave to Cohen.
She points out that the returns will show the amount of money Krupa made during those years and are vital to the case, due to Krupa accusing her of ruining her reputation and causing her to lose jobs.
Krupa objected to the majority of the demands from Glanville, saying the reality star’s requests were nothing more than an attempt to harass her in the legal battle, saying many of the documents requested have nothing to do with the issues at hand.
