A 32-year-old Houston man is suing a local stripper, claiming she failed to return his beloved Harry Potter DVDs.
Robert Wallace, software developer, fancied himself to be in a "dating relationship" with exotic dancer Nomi Mims. He apparently loaned Mims $2,000, a laptop and his collection of movies based on J. K. Rowling's books. Wallace allegedly met Mims last year when she was working at Treasures on Westheimer.
When the alleged relationship ended on May 3, Wallace hoped Mims would return his items.
"I've given him gifts too. You know, how do I get my booty and boobs back?"
"After a week of waiting for her to return my things, I decided to file a suit to get my stuff back," Wallace tells Fox 26 News.
Here's where things get a bit tricky. Mims claims she and Wallace were never in a "dating relationship" and the items he loaned her were simply "gifts."
"I don't believe in loans because I don't want to pay anybody back," Mims says. "I've given him gifts too. You know, how do I get my booty and boobs back?"
Mims claims Wallace isn't the first patron to ask for a refund. She also said she's had to deal with customers following her home, forcing her to move — and switch gyms and jobs.
"No refunds in the strip club. I've even had people come up in there asking can he get a dance and he'll pay me back next week," Mims tells Fox 26. "We ain't got no layaway plans either."
Wallace said that the situation has led him to rethink dating a stripper in the future.
"I did kind of see it possibly ending this way," Wallace says.
The case does not have a scheduled court date yet.
