Following years of legal battles with Ryan Horne and Nicos Kirzis, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple has mutually settled the lawsuits against them for an undisclosed amount and is looking forward to putting their money struggles behind them.
“In one day, the music manager closed the chapters on all pending matters,” a source told E! News on October 15.
“These matters, which were never as concerning to the Kemsleys as they were made to appear, have now been resolved,” attorney Matthew Pace of Rimon Law explained to the outlet. “The Kemsleys look forward to the next chapter without the legal encumbrances of the last few years.”
Dorit’s business partner Ryan stated he struck a deal with PK in 2017 to assist Dorit with the launch of her swimwear line, Beverly Beach by Dorit, before alleging the reality star failed to pay him back for the money he fronted her business. In response, Dorit countersued Ryan and revealed he was nothing more than a vendor of her brand who was never promised any ownership of her company.
As for Nicos, he claimed to have loaned PK $1.2 million in 2011 and said he was never paid back. However, PK insisted the debt was erased in his 2011 bankruptcy in the UK.
As fans saw earlier this year, Dorit’s co-star, Camille Grammer, spotlighted Dorit and PK’s money issues on RHOBH season nine, claiming PK owed her friend “a lot of money.”
In response to Camille’s statements, Dorit accused her co-star of attempting to hurt her on the series’ After Show.
“PK’s affairs and whoever’s coming out trying to say he owes him money—that is from another lifetime ago. It’s way before me; it’s way before his bankruptcy; it’s at the height. And, unfortunately, when you become public, they come out of the woodworks, and that’s exactly what’s happening,” Dorit said. “There is far more to the story than what people think that they know. And, there’s a lot that I can’t say because it’s in the hands of lawyers and where it should be.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 10 began production in August and is expected to return to Bravo TV sometime next year.
