In a statement, the Pump Rules star said:
“It’s with heavy hearts that we announce that the lease at Pump Restaurant is expiring, and we will be closing its doors on July 5th, after ten years of beautiful evenings under our olive trees. While we have loved our time operating Pump, to take on another 10-year lease with a huge increase in rent by the landlords is not something we are ready to commit to. After successfully running 37+ establishments for many years, this type of rent is untenable.”
At the time, Lisa blamed the closure on an increase in rent; however, not the landlord for PUMP is telling a different story.
Lisa’s landlord released a statement on the closure of PUMP to Deadline. In the statement, the landlord claims that PUMP has struggled since the pandemic while denying claims of an increase in rent. The landlord also suggests that rent payments were missed.
The statement read:
“Lisa’s comments regarding the rent for Pump are not accurate. We did not raise the rent and, in fact, have been nothing but supportive as they tried to catch up on lease obligations, including forgiving some rent during Covid.”
Pump Rules airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm on Bravo.
