Kevin Federline Sued

You Destroyed My

Mansion, DEADBEAT!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0503_kevin_federline_house_launch
Kevin Federline is an inconsiderate homewrecker ... so says his former landlord ... who claims K-Fed trashed his L.A. mansion ... and then screwed him out of rent money.

Federleezy is being sued by Joseph Malek ... who claims Britney's ex moved in to his mansion in Tarzana, CA back in 2008 ... wrecked the place ... and then bolted without forking over a check for 7 months of rent.

Malek had threatened Federline with legal action back in 2009 ... claiming KFed turned the sprawling Valley property into a cigarette-riddled, spit-stained dump ... complete with broken smoke detectors and glass bottles littered all over the yard.

Malek had previously claimed KFed caused more than $110k in damage -- and now he wants a judge to force the former rapper to pay up.

Attempts to reach KFed were unsuccessful.

Sounds like maybe this happened:
KFed abandoned the house. Didn't care if he gave up his deposit and had to forfeit his own personal property up for auction.

I like the way landlords go "unfortunately."


"Unfortunately" we cannot give you back your deposit.


-Like it hurts them as people.

Landlord tried cashing a post-dated check -


Hoping it wouldn't clear.


So he could tack a couple hundred extra on -


And for insufficient funds.


If they find blood on the floor -


They'll scoop it up.


Take it down to a blood bank.


"How much can I get for this?"

That doesn't look like $110,000 to me. The tile damage is probably due to poor workmanship/the elements/wear and tear. Yes, it does look dirty and KFed is a pig but the owner is going way off the deep end based on these pics.

Surprised Joe Landlord hasn't dragged
Brit into this -


-Yet.


I'm sure that's coming.


-Somehow this will be Brit's fault, too.

What did he expect to happen? Apparently he doesn't watch the TMZ site and know about K Fed.

K Fed gets a monthly installment from Britney Spears, so he will have to pay for the damages. Go get him Mr Landlord.

Who is their right mind would rent out their house to a "so called celebrity" anyway, everyone knows he does not have a job. Idiot landlord.

That's just gross. I can't understand anyone who says "well it's not a big deal, just clean it up, it's just a rental" - would YOU wanna live in a mess like that? Does it look like that in your backyard? GROSS. I am a smoker too, but you won't find a single cig butt on my property. That's what they invented ashtrays for. There is no need for making your own house look like that. Doesn't he have his kids over there too? What an awesome rolemolde for them. Just throw your trash on the floor, nobody cares. As someone mentioned here earlier - You can take the guy out of the trailerpark....

Some are damages, most is normal wear and tear on the property. The landlord pays for that. They both need to fork it over. $110K? Really? I'll take $75,000 and do it for ya!!!

Maybe he should lose his bond for the mess, the broken pot and lamp, but most of the "damage" shown in the photos seems to be due to poor construction. That's what happens when you go to Home Depot to find a "tradesman"
