“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Dorit Kemsley’s husband is close to having his UK bank account seized, as part of his nasty court battle.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Paul “PK” Kemsley was questioned about an overseas bank account during a recent court hearing. The case centers around $1.2 million PK owes to a man named Nicos Kirzis, who has been trying to collect on the debt.
Kirzis wants to seize the money in the UK account. The judge heard from both parties during the hearing. He did not make a decision but set a hearing for later this month. He asked for more information about the bank account before he issues an order. PK could face having the account seized.
In docs, Kirzis blasts PK, “Despite living in a multi-million dollar mansion and being featured on a show highlighting his and his wife’s wealth and opulent lifestyle, Mr. Kemsley steadfastly refuses to pay his debts.”
The battle over the money has been going on for over a year. Kirzis accuses Kemsley of not paying a dime for years.
Kirzis said Kemsley has made a payment of $250,000 but that only covered the interest that racked up for years, leaving a remaining balance still of $1,235,573.66.
Dorit was ordered to appear in court, as part of PK’s battle and bring her financial and bank records.
Kirzis went to court trying to seize moneyin a City National Bank Account under PK and Dorit’s name.
Dorit demanded Kirzis not be allowed to seize the $29,634.10 in the account. She argued the account was her separate money and PK had not contributed to it.
The judge decided to freeze the bank account until a final decision was made. (c/rhobh-real-housewives-beverly-hills-dorit-kemsley-pk-bank-account-frozen-andy-cohen). A hearing was held recently where Dorit and PK were ordered to turn over the $29k to Kirzis.
PK filed docs denying he owes the $1.2 million. He claims it was discharged in a UK bankruptcy he filed in 2011.
The Blast also obtained a video last year of a woman screaming at Dorit while on vacationing with her “RHOBH” co-stars. The woman was friends with another man currently suing Dorit and PK over a bikini business. In the video you can hear the woman scream at Dorit to pay her friend and shouting “you cheap bitch!”
Despite the legal issues and alleged money owed, it didn’t stop Dorit from celebrating her 43rd birthday in luxury..
Dorit and PK were also hit with federal tax liens over an alleged $1 million dollars in back taxes. the IRS filed two federal tax liens over unpaid tax bills. The first was filed against Doritand Paul “PK” Kemsley for unpaid 2015 taxes totaling $635,887.23.
The second lien was for PK solely and accuses him of failing to pay an additional $289,423.67 for the years 2014 and 2016. The grand total of the debt for both liens comes to $925,310.90.
Looks like Dorit will have more than enough material for next season, where she will be joined by two new housewives.
Dorit didn’t seem to have a care in the world as she walked in Kyle Richards’ fashion show.
