Singer, dancer, and choreographer Todrick Hall is reportedly facing financial woes. TMZ reported at the end of last week that he’s being sued by the owners of a home he rents in Los Angeles. They say he owes them two months’ rent, totaling $60,000. Hall did not publicly respond to the allegations in the article.
The respective court filings have now been seen by both People and Entertainment Weekly, and Hall still appears to be staying tight-lipped about what’s going on.
The owners of the property, Avi Lavian and Orna Lavian, said in a March 29 filing that Hall agreed to pay $30,000 a month in rent. After falling 60 days behind, they took legal action.
They issued him with a three-day notice to pay up by March 3 or vacate the property. The notice was left with another individual at the residence. Their filing says Hall “failed to comply” with the request.
They now want the money owed, attorney’s fees paid, and termination of lease.
What has confused many folks is that Hall, 37, posted a video tour of his new residence in February 2021, telling fans he’d “bought” his “dream home”. Queerty reported on the custom-made Luis Vuitton bed he had constructed for his bedroom.
“I have been wanting to buy a home for a very long time. This is a dream come true. I saw over 50 homes before I decided to get this one,” he says at the start of the video, still viewable online.
Most commentators are now questioning whether this is actually the property he’s being sued for late payment of rent over—or is it a second property?

Last July, Hall reported that his LA home had been burglarized while he was away in London. He said an estimated $50,000 of items was stolen and suggested it may have been by someone he knew.
“I am ok,” he tweeted in response to a news story about the robbery. “This happened right after my cat sitter left for the night. I’m extremely saddened that most likely this was done by someone I know and trust, but my cats are safe…and that’s what matters most to me.”
Thank you for the support, I am ok. This happened right after my cat sitter left for the night. I’m extremely saddened that most likely this was done by someone I know and trust, but my cats are safe…and that’s what matters most to me. https://t.co/S7thAx6TKg

This latest setback comes following Hall’s controversial time on Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year. Although placing second, Hall was widely criticized for his behavior on the show and exchanges with other housemates.
Responding to the controversy, he later told ET: “I’m happy with the game I played.
“I wish that the personal statements wouldn’t have been said. I wish I wouldn’t have crossed into a personal level. But I don’t regret being on the show and I’ve learned a lot from it.”
He said he wanted to apologize for “a lot of things that offended people,” but added, “For me, it was just a game.”
“I think my biggest regret is ever letting the lines of game and reality blur together, and ever saying anything negative to somebody. I actually liked everybody in the house.”

Since leaving, Hall has been busy promoting his most recent album, Femuline, and is currently on a world tour.
Queerty has contacted representatives for Hall to ask about the allegations of non-payment of rent.
I’ve always found Disney gays to be quite messy.
$30k a month for rent???? That right there would have me questioning life choices, even IF I could pay for it.
It’s a mansion in L.A.

I’m sure if it was her second property this malignant narcissist would be bragging about it.
Maybe if she sold her expensive bed she could pay for it. Lol
Oh and that mess of a video. I could only watch a few minutes. This is the kitchen that I allow my assistants to use. Gag. Ok Queen. Lol
I hope they’re keeping their eye on the $ since Hall is so famous for stiffing people.
very bad taste.
Delusional. Pop careerists are the new religious fanatics.
Although I do think he is talented I have never liked him.
So this dude just doesn’t pay ANY of his bills? Sounds like his entire career and lifestyle is held together with spit and twine.
