Oh No! Rudy Tomjanovich Owes Millions!

Former Los Angeles Laker coach Rudy Tomjanovich has been ordered to pay more than $2.7 million dollars because the Pacific Palisades house he sold had mold and water damage that he failed to disclose when he sold it, according to a local report.

The house, which is located in the Palisades at 1639 San Onofre, is reported to be 6,600 sq, ft. on four levels. Rudy T. purchased it for $4.25 million from “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis when he took over the Lakers from Phil Jackson. But Rudy T. resigned from the Lakers after just 41 games and later sold the house and according to the court documents made a profit of $3,169,927.48.
