Sherawat in Paris eviction

RENT DEFAULTER: Mallika Sherawat

A FRENCH court has ordered that Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat be evicted from an apartment in a posh part of Paris for failing to keep up with the rent.  

In a December 14 ruling seen on Tuesday (9), the court told Sher­awat and her French husband Cyrille Auxen­fans to pay €78,787 (£69,455) in rent owed and expenses, giving the green light for their furniture to be seized.  

The couple began renting the apartment in the upmarket 16th district on January 1, 2017, for a monthly sum of €6,054 (£5,337).  

According to the owners, however, they never paid the rent, making only a single pay­ment of €2,715 (£2,393).  

At a hearing in a Par­is court on November 14, a lawyer for the cou­ple said they were in fi­nancial difficulty.  

The lawyer empha­sised the “irregular” nature of Sherawat’s work, an argument dis­missed by the owners of the apartment, who claimed she had earned tens of millions during the rental period.  

Neither Sherawat nor Auxenfans replied to a request for comment.  

In mid-December the actress had denied hav­ing a Paris apartment.  

“It’s absolutely not true. If someone has donated one to me, please send me the ad­dress,” she tweeted in response to media re­ports about the case.  

The couple may ap­peal the eviction order.  

They also cannot be thrown out until March 31, when a moratorium on wintertime evic­tions expires.
