The recently retired tennis star who reportedly quit to pursue modelling and fashion design has been accused of failing to pay six months rent and stealing valuable furniture from the Florentine villa she was living in until three months ago.

'I wrote to him that they must at least give us back our things, he responded in a contemptuous way saying that they were objects of little value,' the owner added. 

'A hateful behavior, for those like me who have suffered economic but also emotional damage.

'I can't know how much is true or how much Camila owes the State , but I know what he owes us.
