Tenant: Spike Mendelsohn
Alleged debt: $8,700
Details: The "Top Chef" star and business partner Mike Colletti signed a lease on a Capitol Hill rowhouse last spring, shortly before opening their popular Good Stuff Eatery. After the property fell behind on $2,200-a-month payments, their landlords filed a complaint, according to D.C. Superior Court records -- and finally last week, moved to evict them. Turned out Mendelsohn no longer lived there. Washington City Paper reports that the chef-entrepreneur moved in with his girlfriend last summer and handed off the rowhouse lease to one of his cooks, who apparently dropped the ball on paying rent -- but the landlords say Mendelsohn never alerted them to his move.
