A former Utah Jazz player and his wife are being sued for nearly $167,000 by a downtown Salt Lake City mall for allegedly violating a lease.
Inland Western Salt Lake City Gateway, LLC, which owns and operates The Gateway mall, sued Bezurk LLC, ex-Jazz player Andrei Kirilenko and his wife, Marina Lopatova, also known as Masha Kirilenko, claiming the pair had opened a store there but failed to pay, according to the civil suit filed Friday in 3rd District Court.
According to the lawsuit, Andrei and Masha Kirilenko were the owners of Bezurk, which did business as Fleur de Lis. The lawsuit alleges that Bezurk first signed a five-year lease in 2007, but in 2009 agreed to a second three-year lease to acquire additional space. Both leases were to end in 2012.
