Ms Sherawat is often described as a multi-millionaire and was renting the flat with her French husband Cyrille Auxenfans
Bollywood star and international model Mallika Sherawat and her tycoon husband have been evicted from their luxury Paris apartment because of £70,000 rent arrears.
Ms Sherawat, 41, often described as a multi-millionaire, and Cyrille Auxenfans, 47, rented the £6000-a-month flat all last year, but beyond an initial payment of £2400 they reportedly paid nothing.
The star was tear gassed and beaten up by three masked intruders at the apartment in 2016, just a month after reality TV star Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in a neighbouring flat.
Despite documents filed in the 16th arrondissement district court in the French capital being shown to news agency AFP, Ms Sherawat today tweeted that the allegations were all fabricated.
She stated: ‘I hv said it before & I am saying it again, I DO NOT OWN or RENT any apt in Paris! I have been in Los Angeles and India since last 8 months, I DO NOT live in Paris, ps do not spread false rumours!’
Nobody can be kicked out of property during the winter months in France, but efforts are already being made to seize the couple’s furniture, following the court ruling against Ms Sherawat and Mr Auxenfans, a well-known and highly successful Paris businessman.
At a hearing in November, the couple’s barrister David Honorat told the court: ‘My clients are in a difficult financial situation, but not irremediable.

‘She is an actress. He no longer has a job. There are dependent children. He lives thanks to advances.
‘He pays support for his two children and pays a compensatory allowance to his ex-wife. He is waiting for his parents’ inheritance.’
Mr Honorat added: ‘My clients do not dispute the amount of debt and are determined to repay what they owe.’
In turn Olivier Mayrand, the owner of the flat, said the couple were acting in ‘bad faith’, and that Ms Sherawat had earned tens of millions during her highly successful career.
At the end of 2016, Ms Sherawat and her French husband allegedly suffered a mysterious attack in the flat, which is across the river Seine from the Eiffel Tower.
They said they were tear gassed and beaten up by three masked intruders, who then ran away before police arrived.
A criminal investigation was launched, with detectives working on the theory that the still unidentified assailants were attempting a robbery.
Ms Sherawat, whose real name is Reema Lamba, has achieved success in Hollywood, as well as Bollywood.
She was in the 2010 film Politics of Love, which is about a campaign team getting involved in romances during Barack Obama’s presidential run-in.
