Celebrity Exes in Mega-Mansion Eviction War

4/24/2010 4:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Eddie Murphy's ex-wife is desperately trying to evict Kim Kardashian's ex-husband from her 9,200 sq. foot mega-mansion in Calabasas, CA ... all because the guy is allegedly more than $100,000 behind in rent.

TMZ has obtained eviction papers filed by Nicole Murphy, in which she claims music producer Damon Thomas has been habitually skipping out of his $30,000 monthly rent payment to live in the ultra-exclusive Southern California community where Britney Spears and other stars call home.

According to the docs, filed last week in L.A. County Superior Court, Murphy claims Thomas is behind a grand total of $114,500.

But TMZ spoke with Thomas, who tells us he's actually trying to buy the home -- and the rent dispute is the byproduct of a nasty negotiation.  Thomas also tells us he has since paid his debt to Murphy.

Calls to Murphy's reps were not returned.

Kooky the Klown loves the attention of all comments related to how annoying this can be towards all of us. His or her main concern is to continue as long as we post a comment. This jerk wants to be noticed for the so called artistic work presented. Oh Kooky, I forgot to tell you....You do nice work... now back the he!! off!

Maybe Grandma Kardashian will set it up so Kim Kardashian-Thomas (isn't it funny how they NEVER let go of the name Kardashian)can help out her first husband with the cash. In Grandma's eyes, this would make Kim look kind, like she has money, and she could dress her up in an outfit where she could be dangling a kitten again. Now THAT'S publicity for you . . . and Grandma LOVES publicity at ANY cost.

it doesn't matter if he's "trying" to buy the home, if hes living there and doesn't own it yet then he has to pay rent because SHE HAS TO PAY THE MORTGAGE. You can't just stop paying your rent because you want to try to buy the property and live there for free until the deal goes through.

To the stereotypical long, blonde-hairde laid-back smart-ass with his sharp wit (that's televised): Nickleback is the worst. Please don't assume folks that didn't surf their way through L.A. are like you here in our area. You're as big a tool as they. I hope this message gets to you more quickly than the mountains of AD's i had to get through to you. odds are, you're set in stone. P.S.- I don't want to get the TMZ newsletter, i don't want TMZ highlights, **** myshoes.com and weigh****chers.com. thank you and **** you.
