Real Housewives of Miami new cast member Karent Sierra could be facing legal issues because of Lindsay Lohan! Lindsay Lohan was arrested for hitting a pedestrian and running away, and the car Lindsay was driving was registered in Karent’s name!
According to TMZ’sÂ report Karent had previously owned the Porsche Cayenne, but two months ago she sold it to Domingo Zapata, an artist and close friend of Lindsayâ€™s. The problem is Karent failed to have the registration changed, and now that theÂ vehicleÂ is part of an investigation. Karent could be facing some of the backlash!
While failing to change the registration may seem harmless, in New York, if the owner of aÂ vehicle allows someone to drive theirÂ carÂ and thatÂ personÂ gets into anÂ accidentÂ that results in property damage orÂ injury, the victim can legally sue the owner of theÂ vehicle, which in this case would be Karent. Uh oh!
Karent’s rep released a statement to TMZ saying Karent was,Â â€œcompletely unaware of anyone (other than the new owner) driving theÂ vehicle.â€ She adds,Â â€œThroughÂ filming forÂ Real Housewives of Miami, press engagements, and crazy travel schedules, the paperwork has not been executed 100% for the sale of the Porsche. But Dr. Sierra is not responsible for the unfortunate occurrence that took place with Ms. Lohan and the pedestrian.â€
Let’s hope Karent has good lawyers and there is a loophole somewhere. Last thing anyone needs is Lohan drama!
