    Lisa Vanderpump’s Husband, Ken Todd, is Being Sued for Breaking Pump Restaurant Rental Contract

    Lisa Vanderpump’s husband, Ken Todd, is being sued for nearly $1 million for allegedly breaching his rental contract with the landlords of the former Pump Restaurant located at 8948 Santa Monica Boulevard.

    As of August 1, 2023, a legal case was initiated by 8948 Santa Monica Partners LLC, a California Limited Liability Company, against P U M P, LLC, another California Limited Liability Company, along with other parties. The lawsuit, falling under the category of “Other Contract,” was filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Courts, specifically at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles. The current status of the case is listed as pending.

    Page Six reports that The company 8948 Santa Monica Partners claims that Pump – of which Todd is the guarantor – has failed and refused and continues to fail and refuse to keep and perform” their lease conditions.

    The company pursuing the legal action is seeking $750,000 in damages for the alleged breach of contract and an additional $200,000 due to purported failure to transfer a liquor license, which holds an estimated fair market value of $150,000, among other claims.

    In a statement provided to Page Six, the owners of 8948 Santa Monica Partners LLC expressed their determined pursuit of damages, emphasizing Todd’s full liability in the matter.

    P U M P was expected to transfer the liquor license to the next tenant upon surrendering the property on July 13, 2023. However, it is claimed that Todd, at 77 years old, has retained the liquor license, causing a delay in the opening of a new restaurant on the premises. This delay is said to have incurred monthly losses of around $56,500 in base rent and related charges for the landlords.

    The property owners assert that Todd engaged in deliberate and malicious fraudulent activities when entering the lease contract in 2013. They believe that Todd’s actions were carried out with a disregard for ethical and legal standards.

    Responding to these allegations Todd stated that when they took over the location, known as Pump, a decade ago, it was a vacant parking area. He maintained that they had planted olive trees and installed antiques like chandeliers, which he claimed to have carefully removed when they vacated the property. Todd also insisted that the liquor license in question had been in use by their business for the past decade and was rightfully theirs, although he expressed a willingness to sell it to the other party at a fair market value.

    Pump Restaurant closed its doors in West Hollywood on Wednesday July 6, 2023.

    ET Reported this week that Roosterfish will be taking over the spot as soon as next month.

    Yes! You’re definitely right they should’ve taken the trees with them! Also everyone knows when you have an LLC and you close your doors that business is closed permanently you can’t get blood out of a turn up. Don’t these landlords know that already we always try to make $.50 off people scum bags! The Vanderpump‘s improve that property immensely with those expensive trees the Decour and everything else they should’ve yanked everything out of that place when they moved out along with the fences and everything else!! those landlord can suck my butt hole! pump was probably the most… Read more »
