The Australian radio and television personality, who has been taken to a tribunal over claims that he broke the rental lease on a Terrey Hills mansion earlier this year, could now face a larger fine after former landlord Howard Symington accused him of destroying the reputation of his property, according to The Daily Telegraph.
After discovering that he was being sued for $50,000 (£32,000) by Symington, Sandilands announced on his radio show that he only moved out of the nine-bedroom home ten months before his 18-month lease was up because the house was a "s**thole".
Sandilands said: "When [ex-wife] Tamara and I separated I had nowhere to live, so I rented this gigantic place which was fabulous.
"But then the place starts breaking down, things stop working, you contact the real estate agent, and they just don't contact you back. It turned into months of problems... the only way to get these guys' attention [was to] stop paying rent and someone will come knocking."
Symington could now receive a much larger payout from the star due to Sandilands making his issues public.
The dispute was scheduled to go to court today but the lawyers involved expect it to be delayed by a month as Sandilands is currently in Los Angeles.
