Former “CSI” actor Gary Dourdan may have had his fair share of controversies and a life that saw his fortunes dwindle. But that doesn’t mean he can escape from paying his girlfriend for busting up her nose.
When it comes to bankruptcy, one normally gets away with a lot of things, including bills. But in this case, Dourdan’s ex, Nicole Cannizzaro, is asking the court not to consider Dourdan’s bankruptcy as a reason to let him go scot-free without compensating her for her injuries and expenses. Cannizzaro’s application follows a domestic violence incident that took place in 2012.
Cannizzaro wants two payments of $10,000 and a monthly $2,500 for the coming 31/4 years.
This isn’t Dourdan’s first bankruptcy filing, having done so in August 2011, citing that his assets were worth slightly above $1.8 million, yet his debts were $1.73 million. The sad part was that most of the debt, $1.69 million, was owed to institutions, particularly banks including Union Bank, who has held his mortgage that he’d defaulted on.
