“The truth of the matter is this. I have not taken one penny from the law firm in the past three years. I have devoted everything to assist in the cases that we have here. Further, the money that was borrowed, we agreed to repay in approximately two weeks before the lawsuit," Thomas told The Blast about the court case in August 2019. "It is slanderous that the money was for my ‘lifestyle’ … every penny went for costs in cases that the firm is handling.”

Mauricio maintained his innocence in the Malibu mansion case and opened up in October 2019 to the website Inman about the lawsuit. “If I had to do it again in hindsight, I would do it the same way I did it last time. I wouldn’t change a thing," he said. “There are two sides to every story. Mine has yet to be told. It’ll be told soon. It’s not affecting our daily business, it’s not affecting our operations.”
