Actress Leigh Taylor-Young and her husband settled a lawsuit they filed against one of the stars of the USA Network’s “Chrisley Knows Best” reality TV series for allegedly breaching an agreement to lease the couple’s 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 in April 2014 against Julie Hughes Chrisley, asking for more than $50,000 in damages.
On Thursday, Judge Joseph Kalin dismissed the lawsuit in the aftermath of the settlement. No terms were divulged.
Chrisley and her husband, entrepreneur Todd Chrisley, wanted to use the home as a residence for three of their children, the suit stated. Julie Chrisley and the plaintiffs reached an agreement in December 2013 to lease the property, according to the complaint.
Chrisley’s husband was not part of the agreement because he filed for bankruptcy in August 2012, the suit stated. However, Chrisley failed to meet her initial payment obligations, which included monthly rent of $15,000 and a $30,000 security deposit, the suit alleged.
Taylor-Young, 70, and Morton subsequently reached an agreement with another party to lease the property, according to the suit. They sought 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.
