"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Dorit Kemsley’s husband PK is on the hook for $1,700,000 owed to a Las Vegas casino, only adding to his mounting financial woes.
According to newly filed court documents obtained by The Blast, the Bellagio Hotel and Casino finally revealed the exact amount Paul "PK" Kemsley still owes them on the $3.6 million casino marker he took out years ago.
Back in 2013, the casino sued Kemsley after he allegedly failed to pay back the multi-million dollar marker. The reality star had made a few payments of $875,000 but then filed for bankruptcy in the U.K. and was able to get his debt wiped clean.
The casino fought the debt because they were never notified and claimed the order from the U.K. wasn’t valid. They ended up receiving a few more payments from PK but he still owed over $2.27 million.
A settlement was hatched between the two parties in 2015 for him to repay the remaining millions, which obligated PK to make payments until June 2018. He made the payments for years but then last year the casino claimed he stopped making payments and demanded a judgment on the remaining balance owed.
The judge signed off on the Bellagio's request, allowing them to start going after PK to seize any assets he may have to collect on the debt. The amount Kemsley owed was originally kept confidential.
The new docs filed by the Bellagio, who have been taking steps to begin the process of seizing Kemsley’s assets, reveal that since 2015, Kemsley paid off a total of $565,000 on the debt but currently still owes $1,705,000 — plus interest of $19,268.37 — for a grand total of $1,724,268.37.
The Bellagio has also filed a writ of execution which directs the United States Marshal to enforce the judgment against PK and have placed a judgment against the Beverly Hills mansion Dorit and PK and currently trying to sell.
