DJ Envy is questioning a recent real estate fraud lawsuit that has been brought forth against him.
According to HipHopDX, the media personality was sued alongside real estate couple, Cesar and Jennifer Pinas, by two men, Anthony Barone and Anthony Martini, who claimed they were defrauded out of a $1.5 million after an apartment complex project fell through.
What’s more, the men allege that after investing in the Taylor Company and Flip 2 Dao, two real estate ventures, Envy and the Pinas took their money without bringing the project to the anticipated close.

DJ Envy suggests that he too is a victim after claiming that he lost $500,000 in a separate project with the Pinas to renovate and transform a former school into an apartment building.
Despite his reports of an agreement with the couple to receive a return on his investment as well as a monthly dividend of close to $17,000, DJ Envy says he has yet to see any of the money.
All parties, including Barone and Martini, are expected to appear in court on Sept. 8, 2023, to reach an agreement in the case.
