'Real Housewives' Star Kim Richards Was Reportedly Living Out of Her Car Before Shoplifting Arrest
There is more trouble for Kim Richards, the former star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The 50-year-old was arrested on Sunday for allegedly shoplifting $600 worth of merchandise at a Target in Los Angeles.
But now a published report claims she is homeless and living out of her car.
She had been staying with friends and relatives since leaving rehab last month but had ran out of people to turn to at the time she was arrested, according to the reports.
Richards, who was recently fired from The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, has reportedly been in and out of rehab this summer.
Earlier this year, Beverly Hills Police arrested Richards for allegedly kicking a cop while intoxicated.
In response, Deputy District Attorney Leila Tahmassebi made an offer of three years' probation and 30 days in jail or 30 days community labor plus restitution, plus 52 Alcoholics’ Anonymous meetings.
She pleaded not guilty to charges.
Her ex-husband, Monty Brinson, defended her, telling Entertainment Tonight: “I couldn't imagine Kim stealing or shoplifting anything. She is a giver.”
He continued: “I am in complete shock. Guaranteed this must be some kind of mistake, and the facts will come out soon. She was arrested for shoplifting toys in a cart, but this was a clear misunderstanding. This was not alcohol- or drug-related."
Brinson and Richards were married from 1985-1988 and have a daughter, Brooke, together.
