Tracey Jewel's legal nightmare is getting worse: the court rejects MAFS's attempt to get out of debt
Married to First Sight & Tracey Jewel, 37, has again been hit in her legal battle against her investment banker ex-boyfriend Patrick Kedemos.
This week, the Perth court rejected Tracey's request to suspend the execution of a decision against Patrick to pay $ 34,000 in June.
The debt is related to a $ 20,000 business loan that Patrick had provided to Tracey last year, plus $ 14,000 in interest and court fees.

Tracey, who recently returned from a generous outing in Bali, cited financial difficulties in her application.
Despite the opening of the procedure, Tracey did not appear before the hearing.
Instead, she provided a medical certificate to the court stating that she had to attend an appointment with a psychologist.

& # 39; Inability to pay is not a special circumstance & # 39 ;: when rejecting the application, the registrar explained that decisions are only suspended in the case of & # 39; special circumstance & # 39; and that Tracey's situation did not fall into this category
When refusing the application, the Registrar explained that decisions are only suspended in the case of & # 39; special circumstances & # 39; and that Tracey's situation did not fall into this category.
& # 39; Inability to pay is not a special circumstance & # 39 ;, they said.
Tracey will have the opportunity to prove that her financial situation is sufficiently precarious during a resource investigation on 30 August.
Generous lifestyle: Tracey recently spent time relaxing in the lavish Bliss Sanctuary for women's retreat in Bali, where she indulged in spa treatments and & # 39; energy healing & # 39; sessions
Contradeal: Responding to Mr. Zimerman, Tracey & # 39; s lawyer Lisa Riley, from law firm Go To Court Lawyers, said that the journey from Tracey (photo) to Bali cost her nothing because it was part of a sponsorship agreement with Bliss Sanctuary for Women
The court also ordered Tracey to pay another $ 726 to Patrick for court fees and accrued interest.
Patrick & # 39; s lawyer Ilan Zimerman, the director of the Sydney-based law firm Sapient Legal, argued through an audio link that Tracey was not fair about her financial situation.
Tracey had argued that she only had 95 cents in her bank account and that her mother Jennifer Collett only paid her $ 4,000 a month as part of a business agreement.

Mr. Zimerman called these claims & # 39; suspicious at best & # 39; and wondered how Tracey could have afforded to pay her lawyer's fees and finance her lifestyle as a jet setting.

Claims: Patrick told Daily Mail Australia last month that Tracey (photo) was trying to suspend the ruling to prevent bankruptcy
In response to Mr. Zimerman, Tracey & # 39; s lawyer Lisa Riley, from Go To Court Lawyers law firm, said that the trip from Tracey to Bali did not cost her anything because it was part of a sponsorship agreement with Bliss Sanctuary for Women.
Mrs. Riley also argued that Tracey & # 39; s recent trip to America was fully paid for by an unnamed ex-boyfriend.
Last month, Patrick told Daily Mail Australia that Tracey was trying to suspend the ruling to prevent bankruptcy.
Tracey had previously offered Patrick a $ 250 monthly payment plan in March and claimed that she could not work due to & # 39; ongoing psychological problems & # 39 ;.
She also claimed to have a debt settlement with two other creditors and said that her retired parents supported her financially.
Patrick, however, rejected this offer on March 26.
