Trump's "Friends" to Donald -- You're Sued!

10/12/2007 8:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A couple claiming that Donald Trump abruptly fired them from a sweet friends-and-family deal at his new Chicago skyscraper are now suing to get their place back.

In the suit, Nathan and Judi Diamond-Falk say they were one of a select group of "friends and family" who were offered a chance four years ago to buy a $1.2 million condo in the new Trump International Hotel & Tower at a ten percent discount -- and they jumped on it. All was fine until June 2006, when the Diamond-Falks got a letter saying that their contract was "null and void," completely canceling the deal and forcing them to renegotiate.



The couple charges Trump with making "false and fraudulent promises" and engaging in "deceptive acts or practices." They're seeking to get their original contract reinstated and over $100,000 in damages and fees.

Trump, as ever, is unrepentant, saying that he was fully within his rights to pull the plug. "It really was my option and we decided to exercise that option. We've got language that covers us, and we'll see how the courts rule," he tells Crain's Chicago Business.

I hope they win the suit. Donald Trump is the most hated man in America. I've noticed his wife is about town in NYC alone with their son Baron and she never smiles in photos when she is with Donald anymore. Is he about to dump her too before the pre nup time frame will cost the jerk a dime? DUMPTRUCK Donald!! I hope he loses millions in this lawsuit.

This was in the Chgo Trib last summer. Trump offered a great deal to people to get the buying going strong but when it slowed he pulled out and made them "re negotiate" and pay full price. He deliberately put some clause in the contract to allow him to do that. What a great "friend". That's why he's having trouble selling them. He's an idiot and a cheat.

Another petty fight from Donald. He wastes all that time on Rosie, now he can't even cut a few friends a break that he promised them. Nevermind he will make a ton of money on the deal anyway. It's sad when that's your life. Nothing but greed. Nobody should envy the Donald. Greed is really all he has in his life.

Trump will make a fool out of you if you mess with him. Just ask Rosie. He made her look like the fool that she is and got her fired. He is the reason she will never work in the industry again. She is reduced to blogging and third teer comedy acts.

What a sad and sorry excuse of a man.
One day he'll realize that every gravy train has a caboose.
When he looks around, I wonder if he'll find a single friend.

Donald Trump is one sexy son of a bitch. He can marry me any time he decide to leave his wife. Pre-Nup or no pre-nup.

May, you are nuts. Donald Trump is grossest, dumbest man I have ever listened to or seen in an interview. He sounded so weak and emotionally and socially challenged during that whole Rosie thing that I couldn't follow it anymore. He's just weak, it's sad because he thinks he is pulling of strong and powerful. It's pathetic really.

Donald Trump is a crotchity old man with a bad comb over and a taste for women young enough to be his daughter. At best he is world class con artist in convincing others to invest in his real estate schemes. At the worst he is so egotistical and selfish, that he doesn't give a rat's rear end about anyone other than himself and his reflection upon the world.
