Andre Leon Talley Facing Eviction

Last year 72-year-old fashionista Andre Leon Talley released his memoir 'The Chiffon Trenches' where he famously trashed his former bestie Vogue editor Anna Wintour [click here if you missed that]. 

In totally unrelated news, Talley is facing eviction from the White Plains mansion he has called home since 2004...

From The NY Post

Vogue legend André Leon Talley is being dragged out of his $1 million New York home by the former CEO of Manolo Blahnik USA who alleges the former editor is $500,000 behind in rent.
New court papers seen by Page Six allege that the real owners are George Malkemus and his business partner and husband Anthony Yurgaitis, who bought the home in 2004 for just over $1 million.
Talley — who in 1988 was appointed by Anna Wintour to be the creative director of Vogue, the first African-American person to ever hold the position — responded by filing his own lawsuit against Malkemus and Yurgaitis in Westchester Supreme Court on January 25, 2021.
He claims the pair, who were “long-time, trusted friends,” agreed to buy the home for him and transfer the title once he had repaid them the $1,020,000 purchase price.

The agreement was never put in writing.
