New York real estate mogul Brandon Miller was being sued for more than $221k by two companies when he died last week, according to a report.

Miller, who was married to socialite and Mama + Tata co-founder Candice Miller, died on July 3 after spending several days in intensive care at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital.

The developer's cause of death remains unconfirmed by his family, who has not commented on his passing. 

It has now emerged that Miller was facing multiple lawsuits over unpaid services at the time of his death at the age of 43.

Interior Marketing Group Inc sued Miller in April, claiming he failed to pay a balance of $102,730.27 for luxury furnishing services, as reported by Page Six.

The same lawsuit accuses Miller of refusing to return over $64,000 in furniture from their apartment in Manhattan.

The furniture reportedly included 'high-end living, dining and bedroom furniture and various accessories, including, but not limited to, dining and family room fixtures, area rugs, table lamps, bedroom desks and chairs, credenzas, bedframes [sic], pillows, draperies and sheers and artwork.'

In another lawsuit against Miller, filed in May, Lighthouse Marina claims he failed to pay his balance for the services on his boat, named MillerTime, which had been at the Long Island marina since October 2020.

The marina claims Miller never 'responded nor acknowledged' a notice in October 2022 informing him he owed nearly $40,000. Miller's alleged debt eventually grew to  $55,205.76, per the legal filing.

The document reads: 'Defendant received the boat, used it, enjoyed it and in result traded it in for a bigger boat, which Defendant would not have been able to do but for the repairs performed by Plaintiff.

'Defendant received the benefit of the repairs that were never paid for.'

Miller, a father-of-two, was the principal partner at Real Estate Equity Corporation, founded by his father Michael.

His wife Candice started her fashion and lifestyle blog, Mama and Tata, with her sister Jenna Crespi in 2016 and has since taken over the majority of the business.

She is also the co-founder and chief marketing officer of the vintage-inspired clothing line Black Iris, and the is the head buyer for Tenet shop in Southampton.

Candice built a significant following on her now-deleted Instagram account, where she shared every aspect of her luxurious life - like the $800 facials she gets once a week, 'unless she's traveling' - as she told The New York Times in January. 

Miller's father Michael Miller founded REEC in 1978, and Miller began his work at the company in 2004. 

The company has developed more than 20 million square feet throughout the US, and is behind several high-profile projects in Manhattan.

Miller's family has been sued several times over alleged financial misconduct, as reported by the Real Deal.

His father Michael Miller, who died in 2016, was sued in 2019 over claims that he told his assistant to forge his son's signature on various loans. That suit was settled.

Then in May, 2022, TD Bank sued Miller, his mother and his sister, accusing the trio of engaging in fraudulent transfers to keep the bank from collecting a $2.1 million judgment from his mother.
