DJ Envy, co-host of The Breakfast Club, is seeking the dismissal of a real estate fraud lawsuit in which he and Cesar and Jennifer Pina were sued for alleged fraud in an apartment complex project.
The plaintiffs, Anthony Barone and Anthony Martini accused Envy and the Pinas of taking $1.5 million without fulfilling their promises. Envy has now filed a motion to dismiss the case, claiming that he was not involved in the mentioned ventures. Additionally, he alleges to be a victim himself, having lost $500,000 in a separate project with the Pinas.
In the recent real estate fraud lawsuit against DJ Envy, he refutes any involvement with the Taylor Company and Flip 2 Dao ventures, stating that he was never an employee or representative of either company. He believes that his celebrity status led to him being included in the lawsuit merely for sensationalism purposes.
Cesar Pina, the co-defendant in the case, has also confirmed that DJ Envy was not associated with Flip 2 Dao and that he, along with his wife, were the only members of the company.
Furthermore, DJ Envy disclosed his personal loss of $500,000 in another project involving the Pinas. In this undertaking, he invested in the renovation and repurposing of a former school into an apartment building. The Pinas allegedly promised to return his initial investment within a year, along with monthly dividends of approximately $17,000. However, as of now, DJ Envy has not received any returns or distributions related to this project.
