A French court has ordered that Bollywood actor Mallika Sherawat be evicted from an apartment in a posh part of Paris for failing to keep up with the rent.
The couple began renting the apartment in the pricey 16th district on January 1, 2017, for a monthly sum of 6,054 euros.
But according to the owner they never paid the rent, making only a single payment of 2,715 euros.
At a hearing in a Paris court on November 14, a lawyer for the couple said they were in financial difficulty.
The lawyer emphasised the “irregular” nature of Sherawat’s work – an argument dismissed by the owners of the apartment who claimed she had earned tens of millions during the rental period.
Neither Sherawat nor Auxenfans replied to AFP‘s request for comment.
In mid-December the actor had denied having a Paris apartment.
“It’s absolutely not true, if someone has donated one to me, please send me the address,” she tweeted in response to media reports about the case.
The couple may appeal the eviction order.
They cannot be thrown out until March 31, when a moratorium on wintertime evictions expires.
