The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Gorga goes off on a tenant who he claims hasn’t paid a lick of rent over four years.
For all the Real Housewives of New Jersey fans, you know the Gorgas are not the ones to mess with — on-screen or off. This past Thursday, Joe Gorga, Melissa Gorga’s husband and Teresa Gorga’s brother, got into a screaming match with one of his tenants who allegedly hasn’t paid rent in several years. The tenant allegedly owes Gorga nearly $50,000 in back rent in four years, TMZ reports.
The entire fallout was captured on camera by the tenant, but the video starts with the tenant asking Gorga, “where’s the sledgehammer?” The two go back and forth, with Gorga calling the tenant a “loser” and telling him to “pay [his] rent.”
“Four f*cking years you lived in my building!” yelled Gorga. “You had nowhere to live and I f*cking gave you a f*cking house.” The man yelled back, “The state paid you, you got paid.” The two continued to go back and forth, the tenant saying he paid while Gorga claims he hasn’t and accuses the tenant of selling drugs in the home.
At a certain point, Gorga also breaks out his phone and starts recording the altercation, and the tenant threatens to call the police.
“Call me f*cking daddy motherf*cker because I been supporting you for four and a half years,” says Gorga. “No, you got paid,” the tenant replies. “Get the f*ck outta here,” responds Gorga.
The video ends with both men leaving while still going at one another from the inside of their cars.
