Shockey filed a lawsuit against the landlord of a $14,000-a-month Miami beach mansion — where he lived for ONE MONTH last summer — claiming she”s holding his security deposit hostage for no good reason.
Shockey claims he paid the landlord one month”s rent, plus a substantial security deposit … but when he moved out, she refused to return $16,000 he”s owed.
