She’s not backing down! 90 Day Fiancé star Eric Rosenbrook‘s daughter Tasha Rosenbrook is gearing up for a legal battle against his wife, Leida Margaretha. The volatile relationship between Tasha and Leida was documented throughout season 6 of the hit TLC reality TV show, and it didn’t take long for the drama to spill over into real life. In February, Leida obtained a 4-year restraining order against Tasha. Now, in an exclusive interview with In Touch, Tasha’s roommate Jan shared the latest update in the case. Scroll through the gallery below to find out more about Tasha’s upcoming legal battle with Leida.
“Well, I had no idea that she was even on the show when she and her boyfriend were going to move in with me,” Jan exclusively told In Touch. And the way she was treated on the show and after the show was airing, the way she was treated by Eric and Leida just appalled me.”
“Then when the police got involved, I was like, ‘This is getting out of hand.’ Because I thought it was just going to go away and it never did,” Jan went on to explain. “And then when she got served the papers, that’s when I was like, OK, this needs to end.’ I mean, this isn’t right.”
Jan explained that after the restraining order was granted, Tasha only had 20 days to file a petition to vacate it. That’s why she started the GoFundMe for Tasha so that she could raise money as soon as possible in order to obtain a lawyer.
Jan also explained why Tasha’s mom has been unable to step in and help her daughter during her time of need. Jan said that Tasha’s mother lives far away and works a night shift at her job, on top of caring for Tasha’s younger sister Jennica and running a farmette.
“I’m just here to fill in, you know,” Jan explained. “Her mom was here for the hearing, her mom comes down for important things she needs to be here for. I’m just stepping in going, ‘Hey, I’m a mom. I get this, and I’m gonna help her any way I can possibly help her.'”
“Whenever somebody gets a job or an apartment, they run background checks. And this stays on her record for life,” Jan said. “Even if Leida didn’t get the restraining order, it would still stay on her record for life that one was filed against her. And when they do background checks, that will pop up and a restraining order, especially here, it indicates that somebody perceives you as a dangerous person, that you caused trouble and people don’t want that in apartment buildings or a [place of business.] It really does affect her for the rest of her life.”
In an exclusive statement to In Touch, Eric said “Well, first I’ll say that Jan is blowing a lot of this out of proportion. But yes, I did fill it out. Only because she didn’t know what to do, not because I agreed with the choice to file it.”
He also added that Leida did not request a 4-year restraining order, but that was just what the judge had ruled.
Jan said now, Tasha has met with her lawyer and they are awaiting a court date. In the meantime, Tasha is continuing to save up money to pay for the rest of the legal costs, which could run from $3,000 to $5,000. She was able to raise $1,200 from the GoFundMe.
