Kissinger is being sued by Kevin and Elizabeth Cogan for $3 million in unpaid wages and damages incurred during their stay at his five-bedroom Huntington Bay mansion. But Kissinger has now filed a countersuit claiming that the couple wrecked the house, slept in his bed when he was away and even, as the New York Post puts it, “intentionally befouled the million-dollar home in a way too unseemly to print in a family newspaper.” Sure.
