Candy Spelling Sues

My Landlord

Candy Spelling
is learning the hard way ... it sucks not to own, because she's now suing her landlord who she claims is making her life a living hell.

In Candy's lawsuit -- filed by her attorney Michael Saltz -- she states she's paying $28,000 a month to live in the swanky Carlyle building near Westwood while the ridiculously lavish penthouse she owns is being built.

Here's the problem -- Candy's penthouse isn't done yet ... it's behind schedule.  So she claims she had a deal with the owner of the unit she's renting in the Carlyle to extend her tenancy at her option.  In the suit, she claims the owner is trying to sell the unit and in the process he's breaking the deal by trying to force her out.

What's more ... Candy says the building sucks for all sorts of reasons.  She says she plunked down $10k of her own money to fix the air conditioning and heating system.

And even worse, Candy says the building tried cheating her by double billing for utilities.

And, oh the humanity ... she says the building let unauthorized people use her private elevator.

I bet the landlord could tell us some 'good' stories about Candy.

She is a difficult person and not easy to like...but...from the facts presented here...I think she is in the right.

Candy, Candy, Candy,WHAT EVER made you sell that gorgeous mansion you had and move into a CONDO? I don't care HOW gorgeous the condo is, there is NOTHING like your own home! Granted, you might not have needed all the rooms that you had in your previous abode, but you certainly could have downsized to a "smaller" home!

I hope you sell that condo and get out of there ASAP! Besides, it seems to be taking an inordinate amount of time to "build" your penthouse. Build or remodel? Are they adding another floor to the building for you? If so, then I can understand the delay, but if it's just remodel work, I'd say you are being taken advantage of by the contractor! Good luck.

Entitlement is the essence of evil one said. And I will add, the strategy of some wealthy miserable minority against the world. Not alone that she is an old, miserable and lonely lady now she is hurting the credibility and work ethic of who knows how many workers in that building...

$28,000.00 a month? Seriously? Wasn't the mansion she sold at $85M to Bernie Ecclestone's daughter greed enough? Hearing of how some of the rich (especially in America) live makes me cringe....meanwhile in some other part of the world A CHILD is eating off the streets. Smh!

Does anyone know her given first name? Seems as if "Candy" is no longer appropriate. Just an observation.
