Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dorit Kemsley’s husband Paul “PK” Kemsley has found himself in some legal trouble with a Las Vegas Casino. The Bellagio Hotel and Casino has sued PK after he failed to pay back a casino marker from June 2009.
According to court documents, the Bellagio originally sued PK in 2013 after he made only five payments toward a $3.6 million marker. PK had paid the casino only $850,000 on the debt between 2010 and 2011 before he filed for bankruptcy in the UK in 2012.
The bankruptcy did wipe his debts clean, but the Bellagio fought it and argued that an order from the U.K. didn’t discharge him from the money he owed, plus they claimed no one ever notified them in advance that PK was attempting to bankrupt the debt.
Happy birthday to the best husband in the world. I feel so blessed to have found true love in your arms. I feel so proud to call you my husband. Sharing my life with you was the best decision I’ve ever made and I’m so grateful for every moment. I had a life before I met you but you are the one who gave it meaning. You are my companion, my comforter and my best friend. If there’s a man I ask g/d for, a man that I’m waiting for, and a man I will love forever, it is you my dear husband- only you! May you be blessed with all you have ever dreamt of and may all of your dreams and admirations come true. Happy birthday @paul_kemsley_pk my love for you is limitless and infinite. ❤️??
When someone files bankruptcy in the United States, it is the law that you must notify all of your creditors before court proceedings. The Bellagio won their argument, and PK ended up making a few more payments until early 2013. However, because of interest, he still owes the casino over $2 million.
Eventually, PK reached a settlement with the Bellagio that required him to make payments until June 2018 to clear up his balance owed. But, he stopped making the payments a month early, and there is still an outstanding balance. So, the casino has asked the court for a judgment on the remaining balance, so they can seize PK’s assets, if necessary.
“Kemsley has breached his settlement obligations, and by violating his settlement obligations, he has violated the stipulated dismissal order,” reads the latest filing. “Accordingly, it is appropriate for the court to execute and enter the Stipulated Judgment.”
A judge has not yet ruled on the case, but this isn’t the only legal trouble the Kemsley’s are in. Earlier this month, a former business partner sued the couple over Dorit’s Beverly Beach swimwear line, with a claim that he has never seen a dime after his $200,000 investment, even though the clothing line is now worth $300,000.
In addition to their troubles in court, a new report has emerged claiming that PK was caught flirting with another woman during a recent night out at a West Hollywood restaurant. The woman allegedly was a petite blonde who looks just like his wife, with an insider saying she “could have been Dorit’s twin.”
Bravo is currently filming the new season of RHOBH, and PK’s behavior could become a major storyline since this isn’t the first time allegations have surfaced that he likes to flirt with younger women.
Dorit Kemsley returns in new episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills later this year on Bravo.
