Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga may be living the good life in their new Franklin Lakes mansion, but they can’t escape their troubles.
All About the Tea reports that the Real Housewives of New Jersey couple has been hit with a lawsuit over unpaid building materials for their new home.
A new lawsuit filed on October 17, 2022, claims that Joe didn’t pay his contractors after completing the work on the reality TV couple’s Franklin Lakes property.
On November 14, Melissa accepted the legal complaint from a sheriff at their Franklin Lakes home.
Per legal documents, County Concrete Corporation is suing Morristown Lofts Development LLC, which is owned and operated by Giuseppe Gorga, aka Joe Gorga, for unpaid bills.
“Between September 2021 through January 2022, the plaintiff, COUNTY CONCRETE CORPORATION, provided materials to the Defendants. Upon information and belief, these materials were utilized for various construction projects,” the lawsuit reads.
The lawsuit continues, “The Plaintiff provided materials to the Defendants with a value, inclusive of finance charges, of $30, 264.06.”
Joe reportedly received the materials from County Concrete Corporation but then ghosted the company. The company attempted various routes to obtain payment before taking legal action.
“The Plaintiff has attempted on multiple occasions to contact the Defendants and has apprised the Defendants of the amount of monies due and owing,” the lawsuit states, adding that Joe “failed to pay the monies owed to the Plaintiff for the materials that were previously provided.”
The lawsuit was filed a month before the RHONJ couple moved into their new home. On November 18, Melissa revealed on Instagram that her family was moving into their new house. Since then, Melissa has been slowly revealing bits and pieces of her new home on social media.
RHONJ will return for season 13 in early 2023.
