Dorit Kemsley‘s husband Paul ‘PK’ Kemsley found himself back in court this week but this time he was begging a judge not allow their bank accounts to be seized as part of his $1.2M legal battle with Nicos Kirzis.
According to The Blast, PK is requesting a judge block Kirzis’ attempts to collect the alleged debt by seizing their bank accounts.
Kirzis recently racked up a major win in his lawsuit against PK when a judge ordered that the $29,634.10 in Dorit’s bank account be seized.
Dorit tried to fight the seizure of her bank account claiming that the account was solely her money and that her husband had not contributed a dime to account. Kirzis argued that Dorit failed to prove that the cash in the bank account only belonged to her. A judge later ordered the money be sent over to Kirzis.
Recently, Kirzis has attempted to obtain the funds in PK’s UK bank account as well as another bank account belonging solely to his wife Dorit. Kirzis claims that he believes PK is depositing his income into Dorit’s bank account in an attempt to hide assets. He has asked a judge to turn over the funds in both accounts.
In newly filed docs, PK is doing everything he can to stop that from happening. PK is demanding that the order to seize Dorit’s bank account be shut down. He also claims that his UK bank account can’t legally be touched in his lawsuit.
PK says that UK law prevents his bank accounts from being able to be seized and that Krizis has no legal rights to the assets in those accounts.
As for Dorit’s bank account, PK says there’s no proof that he’s ever deposited money into the account. He also argues that Dorit can’t be held liable for a debt that he occurred prior to their marriage.
He continued, “Here, the Kirzis notes were incurred in 2011, Mr. and Mrs. Kemsley were married in 2015, and Mrs. Kemsley’s earnings have always been kept in a separate account with no commingling with any community property.”
Adding, “Accordingly, as the Court agreed earlier, Mrs. Kemsley’s earnings are not liable for the Kirzis debt.”
PK continues to insist that he doesn’t owe Kirzis any money; claiming the $1.2 loan was discharged in his 2011 UK bankruptcy.
