Beverly Johnson's Ex Claims He Was a Kept Man

12/30/2009 9:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Beverly JohnsonYou would think a supermodel like Beverly Johnson wouldn't have to hire a boyfriend -- but that's exactly what he claims in a new lawsuit.

According to a lawsuit filed yesterday in California, Mark Burk claims he had an oral agreement with Johnson in which they would essentially act like husband and wife -- and in return Burk would get half of whatever Johnson earned while they were together.

In addition, according to Burk, Johnson agreed to support him "for the rest of his life in the same style and manner that was established" during their relationship. Translation -- Mark wants palimony.

Burk claims they broke up in December 2008 and Johnson hasn't lived up to the deal. He's asking for $5 million in damages.

This is more then a palimony suit. She is guilty of perjury and defamation at the least for the lies she told to try and destroy Chris Noth's career. She should do 10 to 20 behind bars for her illegal activities.. She's the one that should be left homeless.

Burk lost this frivolous lawsuit. And the State finally deemed him a vexatious litigant for all his false claims over decades. He manipulated many people into giving things to him, a home, use of a car, food etc. He's all about using and abusing people. He was arrested, convicted and sentenced. His narcissism is now the construct of a reality show on The Golf Channel where they are trying to change him and make him self-reliant.

You don't ever know what happened behind closed doors. Maybe he was a mooch but better a mooch than a frickin bitch. She thinks she's all that...I think she's ugly!
