Tameka Raymond

Loses Big

in Legal Battle w/ Landlord

7/7/2013 5:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0706_tameka_raymond_article_tmzTameka Raymond is not likely to break a lease again anytime soon ... because TMZ has learned she recently lost a battle with her former landlord over past rent and now owes over $200,000!!!

As TMZ first reported, Tameka was battling her former landlord, who claimed she owed nearly $50,000 in back rent for three retail spaces in a Georgia complex where she ran her business.

Tameka argued it was her landlord who broke the lease and the case should be tossed, but a judge did not see it that way AT ALL ... and ordered Tameka pay up $186,036.50 in principal and $18,628.65 in attorney fees ... for a grand total of $204,665.15.

It's unclear why Tameka was ordered to pay so much. We called her for comment and never heard back.

Lease probably had the attorney fees written into it. Last lease I had, they were there.
READ THE LEASE before signing.

I would Appeal that Judgment, The Judge must have been an Usher fan and awarded a bad judgement. At the very most she should have been ordered to pay $68,628.65

I feel so sorry for this poor woman. Her son dies in a horrific accident. Her children are ripped away from her only because her x had more money. Her x is truly evil and demonic and just soul less, to inflict such heartache on such a vulnerable woman and her children.

Nobody ever calls you back, TMZ. What does that tell you?

I will give this advice again to anyone, who REALLY believes their landlord is breaking their lease (for your home or business, it does not matter): First, put your grievance in writing, and send it by certified mail. Second, any rent you withhold while waiting for a repair should be put into a separate account until the repairs have been made.
If you do not do these things, to a judge it is just going to look like you did not want, or could not, pay your rent.

This woman needs to stop suing everyone she encounters and making a spectacle of herself! It's no wonder she lost custody of her children to Usher. She needed custody to use the child support money for herself. Mentally ill woman. Sad.
