Construction company sues 'RHONJ' star Joe Gorga over $30,000 unpaid material bills for new mansion
JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY: 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star Joe Gorga's 'shady' business dealings are once again making headlines after the contractor reportedly failed to pay for over $30,000 worth of building materials utilized in the construction of the Gorgas' new mansion.
According to ourt documents obtained by AllAboutTheTea.com, County Concrete Corporation, filed a lawsuit against Morristown Lofts Development LLC, owned and operated by Giuseppe Gorga aka Joe Gorga. County Concrete Corporation is suing Joe Gorga and his company for unpaid bills that were accrued while building the reality star's new mansion. According to the lawsuit, “Between September 2021 through January 2022 the plaintiff (County Concrete Corporation), provided materials to the Defendants (Joe Gorga). Upon information and belief these materials were utilized for various construction projects.”
The legal document continues, “The Plaintiff provided materials to the Defendants with a value, inclusive of finance charges, of $30, 264.06.” The lawsuit also accused Joe Gorga of receiving the materials, and then ghosting the company. The company claimed that they gave Gorgas enough time to clear the outstanding bills before taking the legal route. “The Plaintiff has attempted on multiple occasions to contact the Defendants and has apprised the Defendants of the amount of monies due and owing.” The lawsuit states. However, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, “failed to pay the monies owed to the Plaintiff for the materials that were previously provided."
The outlet reported that the lawsuit was filed on October 17, a month before Melissa and Joe Gorga moved into their palatial new-construction mansion. In the complaint, the company also claimed breach of contract and requested a judgement in their favor for compensatory damages, consequential and incidental damages, pre-judgment and post- judgment interest, attorney fees, and reasonable cost of the suit.
This is not the first time Joe Gorga has been accused of not paying his bills. In an earlier season of 'RHONJ' Joe was accused by Michelle Pais of not paying her husband for the services he provided. At that time, Joe managed to get out of it by declaring that they did not have any written agreement or contract, hence he wasn't obligated to pay.
