RHOBH Star Dorit Kemsley's Assets May Be Seized Over PK's $1.7 Million Debt To Las Vegas Casino
Dorit Kemsley’s husband may be dragging her down with him. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s spouse, Paul “PK” Kemsley, is currently being sued for a whopping $1.7 million, and Dorit’s personal assets may be up for grabs if he doesn’t ante up.
The Bellagio Hotel and Casino is suing PK for a multi-million marker he withdrew a few years back. The company originally filed a lawsuit in 2013 but settled outside of court after PK agreed to a repayment plan. The businessman, who hails from the U.K., handed over around $875,000 before filing for bankruptcy in his home country.
PK thought the bankruptcy got rid of his debt in the United States as well, but the Bellagio fought the case. After a brief battle in court, PK agreed to another repayment plan in 2015, but he eventually stopped payments last year.
According to The Blast , a judge recently gave the casino the right to start seizing assets in order to pay back the debt, which still stands at a little over $1.7 million.
To that end, the Bellagio just filed paperwork to seize the couple’s mansion in Beverly Hills, which is currently on the market. It is unclear if PK has the funds to pay back the company before the seizure is passed, but he and Dorit are definitely facing some serious financial woes.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, PK owes the IRS $1 million in taxes and just lost a lawsuit worth $1.2 million for failing to pay back a personal loan. The British businessman is also fighting a legal dispute over Dorit’s swimwear line.
Dorit Kemsley has not commented on her husband’s financial issues, but it will be interesting to see if she talks about the lawsuit this season.
Season 9 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is officially underway, with new episodes airing Tuesday nights on Bravo.
