'Dancing with the Stars' host Brooke Burke is reportedly in legal trouble. Burke and her boyfriend are facing a civil lawsuit alleging they received stolen property for their Malibu home.The lawsuit claims Burke and live-in boyfriend David Charvet bought and received more than $70,000 in appliances from a high end Los Angeles design store.

According to court documents obtained by the website Radaronline.com, Burke and Charvet bought the appliances from a store called Euroconcepts, but purchased them directly from an employee who had allegedly stolen the goods. The lawsuit alleges Burke paid for the items with cash and checks.

Burke gave a videotaped deposition to an attorney representing the store where she explained that the checks written to the store employee were not signed by her.

The attorney for the design store told Radaronline that he believed that Chaarvet knew the goods were stolen.

Today Burke's publicist Brad Cafarelli released a statement that reads: "The lawsuit filed by Euroconcepts against Brooke Burke and David Charvet is absolutely ridiculous and frivolous and a statement from their attorneys is forthcoming."

The store's employee was accused of selling the stolen merchandise at a discount then keeping the money.
