Former ex girlfriend of Aliko Dangote, Autumn Spikes, has been reportedly evicted from her apartment in the United States for owing six-months rent.
The socialite was kicked out of her North Miami apartment in Florida, U.S., after piling up unpaid rent for six months in 2020.
Autumn Spikes and Mr Dangote dated secretly for nearly 10 years until recently when the business mogul broke up with her and subsequently sued her in a court in Florida for allegedly trying to extort $5million from him.
But while the affair was going on fine most of last year; Ms Spikes was grappling with accumulated rent arrears of $13,230 for the months of March to August 2020.
The landlord of the property, The Shoreline at SoleMia, 2301 Laguna Circle, North Miami, Florida; issued Autumn Spikes with a 30-day ‘Pay or Vacate’ notice on August 5.
Ms Spikes neither paid the debt nor vacated her apartment number 1708.
After the expiration of the 30-day notice, the landlord, on September 19, 2020; filed an eviction suit against her at a Miami Dade County court, in Florida.
The landlord’s complaint in the eviction suit reads in part.
“Plaintiff owns or is the lessor of the real property, the premises:
“The Shoreline at SoleMia, 2301 Laguna Circle Apt 1708, North Miami, FL 33181.
“Tenant retains possession of the premises under a written lease requiring rent of $2,215.00 per month to be paid the first of each month.
“A copy of relevant portions of the lease is attached hereto and incorporated herein as plaintiff’s Exhibit A.
“Tenant failed to pay rent for March, April, May, June, July and August.”
“Tenant owes plaintiff rent the months stated in paragraph 6 herein in the total sum of $13,230.00
“Plaintiff served tenant notice to pay or vacate the premises on August 5, 2020, as shown by copy or copies of the notice(s) attached here to and incorporated herein as plaintiff’s Exhibit (s) B, but the tenant refuses to do either.
“In accordance with Fla. Stat. (Florida Statutes) Section 83.60(2), if the tenant fails to deposit the sum of $13,230.00 in the court registry; plus rent which accrued during the pendency of this action, then the plaintiff is entitled to a default judgment for removal of the tenant and to also recover a judgment for rent due and owing costs in accordance with Fla. Stat. Sections 83.59 and 83.625.
“Failure of the tenant to pay rent as a due caused plaintiff to retain undersigned counsel and incur reasonable attorney’s fees and costs; which tenant should pay pursuant to Flat. Stat. Sec 83.48 and the lease.
“Wherefore, plaintiff demands judgment for possession of the premises, rent; due, court costs as well as attorney’s fees against the defendant and other available remedies in accordance with Fla. Stat. Section 83.625 and for such other relief this court deems just and proper.”
