As Starcasm first reported, the Epps family from Seeking Sister Wife were evicted from their Florida rental property in April. The Eppses quickly filed to have the eviction ruling vacated, and they had a lot of valid arguments. We now have an update on the case!
The eviction case had a hearing on May 8. Marcus’s wives Taryn and India (whose names are on the lease) were present in court, as was a representative for the landlords.
In summary, the parties were able to reach an agreement. The Eppses agreed to move out by the end of May. The money the Eppses placed in the Court Registry ($10,360.78) pending a ruling will go to the landlords. The Eppses are not obligated to pay rent for May and they are entitled to the return of their security deposit.
Congratulations to the Epps ladies for having the eviction vacated! I assume we will be seeing photos and videos of the Epps family moving out on social media soon!

#SeekingSisterWife Marcus Epps is no stranger to public controversy. He's an elected official with a political career that has been peppered with scandals including alleged tax evasion, a fire, and a murder at an illegal after-hours club in Cleveland!? https://t.co/VfTUYXMzAr
