Joe Gorga got into an argument Thursday with a tenant who has reportedly failed to pay rent for “four f–king years.”
In footage obtained by TMZ, the 42-year-old reality star argued with the tenant as they both sat in their respective cars in a parking lot. Within seconds, Gorga got out of his car and approached the renter’s car.
The “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star then threw several profanities, calling the tenant a “f-king loser.”
Gorga then shouted, “You had nowhere to live, and I gave you a royal house.”
The tenant also yelled at Gorga, claiming he only owes rent from January to present due to the state of New Jersey’s COVID-19 relief program.
“F-king loser, f-king loser, pay your f-king rent a-hole,” replied the Bravo personality. “Call me f-king daddy motherf-er because I’ve been supporting you for four and a half years.”
The reality star then accused the tenant of “selling drugs in” [his] f–king building,” which the tenant denied.
The tenant continued to dismiss claims that he owed the author of “Gorga Guide to Success” years of rent, saying that Gorga “must have [the] money on other s–t.”
The tenant further claimed that his landlord came to him with a “sledgehammer”, although Gorga appeared to have no tools in the video.
The confrontation ended with the resident saying he planned to call the police and get a restraining order against Gorga before driving away.
Gorga’s attorney told TMZ that the tenant owes him $50,000 in unpaid rent, and although Gorga received nearly $40,000 from a state COVID rent relief program, the unpaid rent is said to date back to October 2018.
The New Jersey resident’s representative and attorney did not immediately respond to Vidak For Congress’s request for comment.
