'RHOBH' Star Dorit Kemsley Loses Court Battle Over Frozen Bank Account

By Ryan Naumann

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Star Dorit Kemsley has lost her battle to save $30,000 of her money, as part of her husband PK’s $1.2 million court battle.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Los Angeles judge has ordered the $29,634.10 held in Dorit’s bank account be seized. The money will be handed over to a man named Nicos Kirzis, in the lawsuit he brought against Paul "PK" Kemsley.

Dorit's City National bank account had been frozen as part of the court battle.

Dorit originally argued the $29k in the account was solely her money. She said PK had not contributed a dime to the account. She demanded the judge not allow Kirzis to touch the money.

Kirzis said Dorit failed to provide evidence, to back up her claims of it being only her cash.

Dorit and PK were in court this week and changed their mind about the account. They agreed to stop fighting over the $29k. The judge then ordered the money (which was being held by the court) be sent over to Kirzis.

The $29,000 will not make a big dent in the $1.2 million owed to Kirzis.

The whole situation centers on $1.2 million Kirzis loaned to PK back in 2011. 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.


PK filed docs denying he owes the $1.2 million. He claims it was discharged in a UK bankruptcy he filed in 2011. He pleaded with the judge to not make Dorit show up to court. A judge denied his request and ordered they show up with their records.
