Report: Shannon Beador Collects $137K Owed By Alexis Bellino's Ex-Husband Jim Bellino As Part Of Nasty Court Battle!

Jim Bellino, the estranged husband of former Real Housewives of Orange County alum Alexis Bellino, paid off Shannon Beador $137,000 he owed her over their messy defamation lawsuit.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Beador has released the lien she placed on his $4 million San Juan Capistrano mansion, which is proof Jim paid the debt in full. 

In February 2020, the RHOC star originally filed the lien against Bellino. She wanted to make sure his property wasn't sold off until she collected the money. 

Shannon was awarded the $137,000 as part of the lawsuit Jim brought against her and Tamra Judge. 

Last year, Bellino sued Beador and Tamra Judge for defamation over comments they made about his divorce and accused them of defaming his name and businesses when they appeared on a live taping of comedian Heather McDonald's podcast, The Juicy Scoop.

Beador was dismissed from the case and was awarded $137,340.25 in the defamation lawsuit filed against her by Bellino. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the award will cover Beador’s legal bills.

Also, Bellino filed a lawsuit against McDonald in June 2019. He accused her of defaming him by allowing Tamra Judge Shannon Beador to talk about his divorce from Alexis and his trampoline business and then publishing the allegedly defamatory statements on her podcast.

Jim sued McDonald for damages in excess of $1 million. In June 2020, McDonald and Bellino said in a joint statement via TMZ that they came to “a settlement of the dispute on mutually satisfactory terms.” 

The joint statement also said Heather “never intended to cause any of the damage” to Jim's reputation or that of his business. 

Meanwhile, Jim is still fighting Judge in court over her “jail” comment, according to The Blast.
