Actress Leigh Taylor-Young and her husband today sued one of the stars of the USA Network's "Chrisley Knows Best" reality TV series for allegedly breaching an agreement to lease their Pacific Palisades home.
Taylor-Young, the former wife of fellow "Peyton Place" actor Ryan O'Neal, and current spouse John Morton filed the complaint in Los Angeles Superior Court against Julie Hughes Chrisley, asking for more than $50,000 in damages.
A representative for Chrisley could not be immediately reached for comment.
Chrisley and her husband, entrepreneur Todd Chrisley, wanted to use the home as a residence for three of their children, the suit states. Julie Chrisley and the plaintiffs reached an agreement in December to lease the property, the suit says.
Chrisley's husband was not part of the agreement because he filed for bankruptcy in August 2012, according to the complaint.
However, Chrisley failed to meet her initial payment obligations, which included monthly rent of $15,000 and a $30,000 security deposit, the suit states.
Taylor-Young, 69, and Morton subsequently reached an agreement with another party to lease the property, according to the suit. They are seeking to recover $52,500 from Chrisley to compensate them for lost rent, the unpaid security deposit and other costs.
"Chrisley Knows Best" follows the lives of Todd Chrisley, his wife and their five children, who live in a 30,000-square-foot Atlanta mansion.
