The tenant of a rent-stabilized East Village owned by Jared Kushner is facing eviction shortly after she evicted her severely ill sublet.

In 2012, the tenant, retired teacher Joy Keith­line, sublet her $600-a-month studio on East Fourth Street to Jeanne DiCarlo for $1,000 a month. Meanwhile, Keithline lived at a different lakeside home in upstate New York, according to the New York Post.

Keithline also owns a $400,000 house on Staten Island and a $117,000 Florida rental property, according to court papers.

But despite the profitable setup, Keithline sued to evict DiCarlo. DiCarlo was forced to cancel her breast cancer surgery.

DiCarlo wasn’t told why she was being evicted, but suspects that Kushner offered Keithline a buyout.

Keithline was ordered to pay DiCarlo $25,000 in overcharges but DiCarlo was still evicted for not having a lease.

“Ms. Keithline’s deplorable actions have no place in our building,” James Yolles, a spokesman for Kushner Companies told the Post. “We are outraged that Ms. DiCarlo was being taken advantage of. We’re working swiftly not only to remove Ms. Keithline through the legal process, but also to ensure that Ms. DiCarlo can live in the unit.” [NYP]Christopher Cameron
