Braunwyn Windham-Burke Claims Eviction Lawsuit Has Been Resolved!

Braunwyn Windham-Burke is opening up about the eviction lawsuit she and her estranged husband Sean Burke were hit with earlier this month.

After being sued for $45,000 in allegedly unpaid rent by their former Newport Beach landlord, the Real Housewives of Orange County alum said on Thursday that she isn't "totally sure what happened," but the issue has since been resolved.

"I found out the same day you guys did," Braunwyn told Access of the lawsuit, in the latest edition of their "Housewives Nightcap" series, according to PEOPLE.

She went on to say that she and Sean had been wiring money into her landlord's trust each month and there was a "discrepancy" in the funds after the pair gave their 30-day notice.

"They're saying there was a month we didn't do it," she said. "We have the wire transfer saying we did. So, Sean repaid, even though we had [already]."

Braunwyn added that she's "not totally sure what happened," because "we were never served."

"My best guess is — because if you had come to my house three weeks ago we hadn't packed one thing — that they were scared we weren't moving out," she speculated. "In California, you can't legally evict anyone right now."

The mother-of-seven went on to say that she isn't usually bothered by the lawsuits that come her way anymore, as "you get sued a lot when you're a public figure. It goes with the territory."

"People that you would never expect sue you for stuff. Most of it is frivolous," she said.

The civil suit against Braunwyn and Sean was filed in Orange County on July 12 according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE — the same day Braunwyn and Sean announced via Instagram Live that they had decided to temporarily separate. 

The suit was filed by Karen Ogden, the owner of the Newport Beach mansion that the Windham Burkes have been calling home since approximately January 2020, when they agreed to pay $15,000 a month in rent. According to the court documents, Ogden gave the couple an eviction notice on June 16, 2021.

A rep for the Windham Burkes stated at the time, "The information provided in the filed civil case is untrue and proper legal action is being taken to rectify the situation."

However, Ogden disputes the Windham Burkes and their representatives' claims of resolution in the matter.

"There's no resolution of any lawsuit. There is a court date in August in fact," the owner of the home told PEOPLE. "They are living a lie."
