Read Time1 Minute, 9 Seconds

The New Jersey country club being sued after a waiter allegedly spilled red wine on a $30,000 Hermes handbag thinks the pricey accessory is a phony, according to their lawyer.

“There are serious issues regarding the authenticity of the bag,” said attorney Ken Merber, who represents Alpine Country Club in the lawsuit by purse-owner and member Maryana Beyder.

Merber added that the club had the pink Kelly bag “examined by an expert,” but declined to say more on the matter.
