WDRB News has obtained a suit filed by Wynonna Judd against Michael Ciminella and the Louisville-Jefferson County Metro Department of Inspections, Permits and Licenses.
The suit alleges that Ciminella obtained property on Belgravia Court, near the intersection of W. Hill St. and S. 3rd St. in July 1994. In order to obtain the property, the suit states, he gave Wynonna Judd a mortgage and promissory note, agreeing to pay her $200,000 for the "loan."
The suit indicates that on Sept. 16, 2011, Judd demanded full payment of the entire outstanding balance, plus interest.
Ciminella has not paid that amount, according to the suit.
"As of February 2012, the amount due under the Loan Documents in favor of Judd is $242,317, representing the principal balance, plus accrued interest and late fees," the suit indicates. "Interest continues to accrue at the maximum rate as set forth in the Loan Documents until paid in full."
The lawsuit accuses Ciminella of breaching his contract and requests that the property be foreclosed on to pay the debt.
WDRB News reached out to Judd's attorneys, but they have not returned our calls.
On Tuesday afternoon, WDRB News spoke with Jeffrey D. Thompson, Ciminella's attorney. Thompson blasted the lawsuit's allegation that the agreement consisted of a mortgage, saying that Judd gave Ciminella the money as a gift. He could not confirm that Ciminella is Judd's biological father, but said he is listed as the father on her birth certificate, and he's the one who raised her.
"It's a shame that a daughter feels like she has to sue and evict her own father," Thompson said, calling it, "a sad situation."
He reiterated his allegation that the money was a gift -- not a loan -- and said it was wrong that Judd was trying to reclaim her gift 18 years later to, in his words, "compensate for her own diminishing career."
"Now that she needs money, she is attempting to come and get it back," he said.
