Sonja Morgan of The Real Housewives of New York City has been ordered to pay $7 million after the United States Court of Appeal upheld the judgment against her for a failed movie venture.
Hannibal Pictures and its owner Richard Rionda del Castro allege Sonja is personally liable for fraudulent conduct after a movie she agreed to fund was not made, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“With the confirmation by one of the highest Courts of our country, the masks are falling and there is no longer any doubt that we were defrauded and severely damaged,” Rionda del Castro said in a statement. “We are now going to collect to the fullest extent of the law.”
Back in November, Sonja filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, claiming the movie, Fast Flash to Bang Time, was never made because John Travolta, the planned star of the film, needed “various conditions” that her company, Sonja Productions, couldn’t provide.
According to PopEater, Sonja listed in her petition that she was $19.8 million in debt with $13.5 million in assets.
Hannibal Pictures took Sonja to court after the deal fell apart and won the $7 million judgment.
Now, Sonja has been ordered to pay.
