Dorit Kemsley’s bank account has been frozen by one of her husband’s creditors.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s assets in the account will be frozen until a hearing in September 2019. Neither Dorit or her husband Paul “PK” Kemsley can touch the account until a final decision is made by a Los Angeles judge, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.
A creditor has been trying seize the funds in a City National Bank account that belongs to Dorit as part of a lawsuit centered on PK owing $1.2 million to a man named, Nicos Kirzis.
Dorit attempted to stop the $30k garnishment — claiming the money is hers alone. However, Kirzis argues that under California law, Dorit’s income/assets also belong to PK because they are married. Additionally, Kirzis accused Dorit of not providing any evidence to back up her claims.
Nicos Kirzis loaned the reality star money back in 2011 and the reality star attempted to wipe the debt clean in a bankruptcy.
Kirzis said Dorit Kemsley recently made a payment of $250,000 but that only covered the interest that racked up for years, leaving a remaining balance of $1,235,573.66.
Dorit has also been ordered to appear in court with her bank statements and financial records, along with information about her sources of income. She will have to let the court know of assets and property jointly owned with PK.
In 2016, Nicos Kirzis sued PK for the 2011 loan in the amount of $1.2 million. According to Kirzis, Paul Kemsley agreed to a 2013 deadline but did not pay anything for years and then attempted to eliminate the debt in a bankruptcy filing.
According to Nicos Kirzis, PK recently made a payment of $250,000 — however that only covered the interest over the years, leaving a remaining balance still of $1,235,573.66.
In August 2018, Dorit was confronted and chased by a screaming woman during a cast trip in Nassau, Bahamas. “Why don’t you pay back Ryan Horne the money you owe him,” the woman screamed at Dorit, “You cheap bitch!” The embarrassing spectacle was caught on video and posted on social media.
The woman has been identified as a friend of Dorit’s former business partner, Ryan Horne. Horne is currently suing Dorit and her hubby Paul Kemsley for allegedly cheating him out of profits from their swimsuit business and a $200K investment.

As fans know, Camille Grammer came out guns blazing when she exposed Dorit Kemsley and PK were living a lifestyle they couldn’t afford because they owe millions to creditors — which includes a close friend of Camille’s.
PK also recently announced he is producing the biopic of his good friend Boy George.
