‘Big Brother’ Star Todrick Hall Sued Over House He Showed off in Recent Video

Before appearing on Celebrity Big Brother 3, Todrick Hall became known in the BB community for hosting several Big Brother 23 houseguests at his mansion following the season. However, his controversial behavior during the competition became more of a topic of conversation. Shortly after moving into the BB house, the singer published a YouTube video giving a tour of a mansion he claimed he had purchased. A couple of months later, the homeowner filed a lawsuit against Hall, alleging he owes $60,000 in unpaid rent.

‘Celebrity Big Brother’ runner-up Todrick Hall sued for unpaid rent

In March 2022, a Sherman Oaks, California homeowner sued entertainer and Celebrity Big Brother 3 runner-up Todrick Hall, 36, for unpaid rent.

According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ, clarified further by legal commentator and former district attorney Emily D. Baker, Hall got served with an unlawful detainer action, which states he doesn’t own the property and hasn’t paid rent.

According to their agreement, the entertainer acknowledged he would pay a monthly rent rate of $30,000 but hasn’t covered the bill in 60 days.

The suit alleged the Kinky Boots star owed for the months of February and March 2022 and claimed other individuals reportedly lived there as another person was served at the home. 

Hall recently showed off his house in a YouTube video and claimed he owned it

Shortly before Hall appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, he hosted several houseguests from season 23 as they notably posted several videos with each other from his mansion.

A few remained at his house throughout the former Drag Race star’s time competing. Two days after CBB3 premiered, the singer published a YouTube video giving a tour of his mansion.

Before welcoming the cameras inside, he claimed he bought the home after viewing over 50 other places, calling it a “dream come true.” The Straight Outta Oz singer showed off the lavish house, starting with a Broadway room that featured framed playbills and Kinky Boots memorabilia.

He also took the cameras inside one of his favorite spots, a movie theater room with reclining chairs, revealing his aquarium-themed pool, custom bed, and massive walk-in closet. The three-floored mansion also includes an elevator and a gym.

Hall has had multiple allegations accusing him of nonpayment since 2018

Several former employees have accused the singer-songwriter of nonpayment throughout Hall’s career. A 2019 Insider article detailed some of the allegations, including a London-based videographer who claimed the Broadway star owed her around $1,000 for work she did on his YouTube channel.

Additionally, she accused the singer-songwriter and his team of keeping a microphone and light that she bought.

Other artists have claimed he failed to pay them, including drag queen Manila Luzon, who said Hall didn’t pay her for a 2018 Halloween party hosting gig, and a dancer and choreographer who said the Forbidden singer owed him for work on several projects.

The entertainer responded to some of the allegations, acknowledging the dancer hadn’t gotten “paid yet” but “will be.” Additionally, he has settled a lawsuit with Tommy McKissock, his former assistant. Hall is currently on multi-city The Femuline Tour and recently opened up about his controversial behavior on Celebrity Big Brother.
