A New York City woman is allegedly refusing to leave the apartment that she purchased 13 years ago with her then-fiance.
Lars Magnusson filed a lawsuit against Alice McCarney in Manhattan on Thursday, seeking half of the value of the co-op where she has been living and paying the mortgage since the two broke up in 2007.
McCarney told the New York Post on Thursday that she 'just found out about the lawsuit and thought everything was settled.'

It's undisputed that McCarney has been paying the entire mortgage, as well as all maintenance, tax and other costs on the Yorkville neighborhood one-bedroom since she took sole possession 11 years ago.
But Magnusson, who now lives in Idaho and runs a UK-inspired hunting property with his wife, has claimed that McCarney's also asked to be paid back for half of those payments.
Now, Magnusson wants to see the property sold, so he can collect on half of the sale price. Comparable units in the building have gone for anywhere between $567,000 and $725,000, in recent sales.

The 32-story luxury doorman building, called Mill Rock Plaza, contains a total of 290 units to date.
Magnusson's lawsuit claims that part of the reason he's doing this now is because he's been prevented from entering the property for years,
