As we previously reported, Kim Richards moved her dog Kingsley out of her house and in with a trainer after he attacked Kyle Richards’ daughter Alexia. Another woman came forward after Alexia’s attack and claimed that Richards’ pit bull had viciously attacked her and now the 80 year-old “friend of the family” is telling RadarOnline that she doesn’t believe Kim sent Kingsley away.
â€œI donâ€™t believe it,â€ Rozario told the site. â€œIf she gave the dog to a trainer, Kim is intending to get the dog back in the future.â€
Another source sais Rozario â€œdoes not buy Kimâ€™s sympathy plea. Kim knows there is a lawsuit coming her way, and this is about to get real ugly.â€
Rozario’s attorney came forward on November 7th with the following claims:
â€œI represent [alleged victim] Kay Rozario and she was attacked by Kim Richardsâ€™ dog on March 20, 2014, at Kim Richardsâ€™ residence. Mrs. Rozario was severely injured from the unprovoked attack of the dog â€¦ I have prepared a lawsuit and will be filing the suit [soon].â€
Rozario added, â€œKim contacted me four months later. She never offered to pay my medical bills. She did nothing. I said to her, â€˜You have to get rid of this dog.â€™ She said, â€˜No, I canâ€™t. He is my best friend and I love him.â€™â€
Later that day, Kim revealed she was “shocked” that her family friend would file suit against her.
â€œI was shocked to learn that lifelong family friend Kay Rozario is bringing suit against me for an incident that took place in March,â€ Richards said. â€œMrs. Rozario has long played an important part in my life and is someone that I have looked at as a second mother. When the bite occurred I offered immediately to handle any and all costs associated with the hospital visit but was told that would not be necessary and there was nothing she needed me to do because insurance covered all costs. Her details of what happened that morning are vehemently not true, she walked into my bedroom the next morning reaching across Kingsley towards me and Kingsley went after her. She was fully aware that I had a dog before she came to town and saw him upon her arrival. In the past Mrs. Rozario has sold multiple stories involving my family and myself and was paid for her participation in a book about my family. This event took place on the morning of the first time I saw her in over 10 years after a reconciliation for her part in the book. Itâ€™s unfortunate how people can go against decades of friendship when something like this happens and make their rounds to the media for money.â€
Do you believe Kim?
