“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Dorit Kemsley is being warned if she doesn’t show up to court with her financial records, she risks being arrested and found in contempt of court.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Dorit and her husband Paul “PK” Kemsley have been put on notice to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom on September 5, 2019.
The reality stars are to bring their financial records, bank statements and sources of income.
The order warns Dorit, “If you fail to appear at the time and place specified in this order, you may be subject to arrest and punishment for contempt of court, and the court may make an order requiring you to pay the reasonable attorney fees incurred by the judgment creditor in this proceeding.”
Dorit was ordered to appear as part of PK’s $1.2 million court battle with a man named Nicos Kirzis.
PK owes $1.2 million to Kirzis who loaned the reality star money back in 2011. He accuses Kemsley of not paying a dime for years and the reality star even tried to wipe the debt clean in a bankruptcy.
Kirzis said Kemsley recently 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.
Kirzis recently went to court trying to seize moneyin a City National Bank Account under PK and Dorit’s name.
Dorit rushed to court demanding 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. Kirzis accused Dorit of not providing any evidence to back up her claims.
A hearing has been set for September, where the judge will decide if the bank account can be seized or if Dorit will keep the funds. The money has been frozen and can’t be touched by Dorit until a judge makes a final decision.
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 Dorit and 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.
