Mike Lindell’s MyPillow Formally Ejected From A Minnesota Warehouse

(PatriotWise.com) — A Minnesota court last Wednesday ordered the eviction of Mike Lindell’s MyPillow from the Minneapolis area warehouse it formerly used, but Lindell insists that the court order was only a formality since the landlord already wanted to take back the property, the Associated Press reported.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Lindell insisted that the court-ordered eviction was not another sign of his financial troubles. He told the Associated Press that his money problems had been improving since last year’s credit crunch, despite losing one of its primary advertising platforms.

Lindell has faced significant financial difficulties over his 2020 election conspiracy theories that have disrupted the company’s cash flow.

In January, Lindell revealed that Fox News had stopped airing commercials for MyPillow following a billing dispute.

In February, a federal judge affirmed a previous arbitration that awarded $5 million to a software engineer who successfully challenged Lindell’s false assertions about the 2020 election.

The embattled Lindell confirmed to the Associated Press that his company owed about $217,000 in back rent on the Shakopee, Minnesota, warehouse. He said MyPillow had already removed its remaining property from the location last June because it no longer required the space.

Lindell said MyPillow sublet the property to another business from June until December. Another company was set to sublet the warehouse starting in January, but it backed out of the deal, leaving MyPillow “stranded,” Lindell told the Associated Press.

When MyPillow offered to find another business to sublet the space, the landlord told the company that he wanted to take the warehouse back. Lindell said the back rent owed by MyPillow was for the months of January and February.

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, last Tuesday’s hearing was requested by the warehouse owner, Delaware-based First Industrial LP, which petitioned a Scott County judge to formally evict Lindell’s company.

MyPillow did not contest the landlord’s petition.

Sara Filo, First Industrial’s attorney, told Scott County Judge Caroline Lennon during the hearing that MyPillow had already “vacated” the property, but the landlord wanted to “do this by the book.”
