Reality Stars Accused Of Letting Dog Attack Visitor To Their $3 Mill NJ Rental
Joe Budden and ex-gal pal Cyn Santana have agreed to settle a lawsuit accusing them of letting their dog maim a business acquaintance.
A woman named Darrielle Weeks sued the reality star exes for allegedly allowing their Cane Corso breed dog to attack her two years ago when she went to their $3 million house rental in Montclair, NJ for a business meeting, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.
Weeks said the unleashed dog savagely bit her on her stomach, leaving scars, her suit alleged, adding that Santana and Budden shouldn’t have allowed the dog to roam freely when they allegedly knew the dog was dangerous.
Budden and Santana denied owning the dog and said that Weeks wasn’t legally on their property when she got bit, according to court papers.
A judge referred the case to arbitration earlier this year, but after the arbitrator ruled that Budden was 100 percent liable for the incident and awarded Weeks $12,000, the rapper and the aspiring singer asked for a new trial.
That case was scheduled to begin June 17, but last week Week’s lawyer wrote the judge to say they’d settled. It was unclear Tuesday what the settlement terms were, but all signs point to some sort of financial agreement.
The “Love & Hip Hop: New York” stars split earlier this year and share a toddler son, Lexington.
