High-flying Manhattan socialite and notorious Russian townhouse flipper Janna Bullock has been hit with yet another lawsuit.
An architect who designed homes, hotels — and even an enormous yacht — for the former Guggenheim Museum board-member and girl about town has filed suit against her in State Supreme Court, saying she owes him more than $2 million for work he did but for which he was never compensated.
The Milan-based architect, Giancarlo Alhadeff, claims he worked on projects for Bullock in Russia, France and the Netherlands, including designing the interiors of a 39-unit condo in Moscow and even a 50-meter yacht in Holland dubbed Tzarina. Now, he says, it’s time for her to pay up.
The lawsuit is the latest in a string of legal and financial battles for Bullock, who made her money flipping luxury private homes on the Upper East Side for big profits in the 2000s.
The blonde real estate maven has also been accused of skipping out on loan payments on a pair of townhouses she owns at 12 and 14 East 82nd St. and was nearly booted from her Park Ave. penthouse last year when the board accused her of failing to pay $40,000 in common charges.
She can’t run from her debts, either. If she returns to Russia, she’ll be arrested for allegedly attempting to defraud Cypriot banks by hiding assets offshore. Her ex-husband, onetime Russian finance minister Alexei Kuznetsov, is facing life in prison back in their homeland for alleged fraud.
