Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dorit Kemsley is facing serious money woes. The reality star and her husband, Paul “PK” Kemsley, owe millions to creditors and now the IRS is looking to seize their assets because of unpaid taxes.
The IRS has filed two tax liens on Dorit and PK. The first lien is for the 2015 tax season and amounts to a little over $635,000. The second lien was for 2014 and 2016 and totals close to $300,000. Taken together, Dorit and PK owe the IRS close to 1 million dollars.

According to The Blast, the IRS is preparing to seize the couple’s assets if they do not pay their outstanding debt fast. With the couple scrambling to find $1 million to pay off the government, they also face mounting debt from private creditors.
This includes a $1.2 million loan from a creditor named Nicos Kirzis, who is currently seeking to seize the pair’s assets to get his money back. In December, Kirzis filed the proper paperwork to start the process in California.
As if that was not enough, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple also owes an outstanding gambling debt to the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The Bellagio recently sued PK and won after he failed to pay back $3.6 million. The company needs only to register the judgement in California to start seizing assets.
Dorit and PK are looking to sell their lavish estate in Beverly Hills to help pay off some of the debt. The two purchased the house in 2016 for $6.5 million. The home is currently listed at $7.9 million, which is not enough to pay off all the debt. But it will make a considerable dent in what they owe.
Dorit Kemsley has never talked about her money troubles on the show, but instead has shown of her over-the-top lavish lifestyle. The new season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres Feb. 12 on Bravo.
