“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Dorit Kemsley’s husband PK was grilled about his financial situation in court, along with ordered to hand over bank statements.
According to court documents obtained by the Blast, Paul “PK” Kemsley showed up to Los Angeles Court, relating to $1.2 million he owes a man named Nicos Kirzis.
He had been ordered to appear and turn over his financial records, bank statements and sources of income.
The documents note that Kemsley did bring his financial records and was “sworn, examined and discharged.” At the hearing, Kirzis did ask the judge to have the reality star turn over more current bank statements.
The judge sided with Kirzis and ordered PK to turn over more records by tomorrow.
The order reads, “The monthly bank account statement for August, 2019 and the current balance as of September, 2019 shall be turned over to judgment creditor no later than noon on Friday, September 6, 2019.”
The order also prohibits PK from moving money around. Dorit is scheduled to be grilled today in court as part of the legal battle.
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 recently ordered to appear in court, as part of PK’s battle and bring her financial and bank records.
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.
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)
PK recently 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.
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.
Looks like Dorit will have more than enough material for next season, where she will be joined by two new housewives.
