Kelly Osbourne

Sues Landlord

I'm NOT A Pig!

EXCLUSIVE

Kelly Osbourne is suing her former landlord, and it's not just for a lot of money.  She's also defending her honor that she's not a filthy slob.

In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ ... Kelly says she rented a fancy apartment in West Hollywood, which has been home to many a celeb, including Lindsay Lohan, Adam Lambert and Brody Jenner

Kelly plunked down $18,700 as a security deposit before moving in.  When she moved out, she claims the landlord never bothered to stop by to check out the unit, but shortly thereafter Kelly got bad news -- the landlord sent her an email notifying her of an estimate of damages.  According to the landlord, the damage and cleaning expenses ate up her entire deposit so Kelly was informed she'd be getting zilch.

Kelly is suing for her deposit back, and under California law if the landlord wrongly retained the deposit she gets up to twice the amount.  She also apparently thinks the landlord is an a-hole, because she wants punitive damages to teach the landlord a lesson.

Not a pig she says. Hmm, ok, I'll just say this. If I ever woke up next to her, I'd seek therapy and extended rehab.

Yet another story to let you common folk know how fortunate you are that you can actually be responsible for your own messes. Does anyone think Amy knew exactly what she was doing by staying out of the limelight?

Not a pig perhaps but I'm sure the chances are 100% that there were red wine stains and candle wax in the carpet. I mean, come on.

Hate renting, especially at the last minute. Once you sign your name on the dotted line and accept the terms of residency. Forget your deposit. It's swirling in the universe of never will get back.

Unless her habits have changed since "The Osborne's", she's a piggie.

Landlords love areas like mine.


No governing bodies hovering over them.

It's just you and them.

Oldest landlord trick in the book.


Invent damages - keep deposit.


My own landlord routinely does it.


It's funny to watch him - like he's very disturbed by what he's seeing (nothing).


Anything previous tenants did or didn't do - that'll come to you.


Even though he also kept theirs, the ones before them, and the ones before the ones the ones before the ones before the ones before the ones before the ones before the ones before the ones...

Kelly's young, she'll be in a home soon.


But once you've been through this landlord drill and game a few times?


You learn to do***ent every SCRATCH.


i.e. Camcorder evidence of move-in.


Landlords don't think security deposits get returned.


They think it's their rental and agents' fee.


They write you a somber letter about "how very disappointed" they were/are to see the CONDITION of which you left the place.


You can count on getting one of THOSE - the moment you sign their lease/give them $$$$.

Oh and landlords aren't above falsifying reports and actual damage - they'll kick a hole in one of the walls once this gets serious.
