Tobey Maguire Sued For Illegal Poker Games


Spiderman star Tobey McGuire is being sued for his involvement in illegal “Texas Hold’em” poker games. The young actor is reportedly a ‘regular’ in a series of exclusive games held at various luxurious hotels and posh homes in Beverly Hills.

The lawsuits, filed by a unnamed bankrupt trustee, is seeking to recoup money embezzled by a fraudulent Hedge Fund manager Bradley Ruderman.

According to report, Ruderman has duped a number of investors by a Ponzi scheme. Last August, Ruderman, the chief executive of Beverly Hills-based Ruderman Capital Partners, has pleaded guilty of embezzlement. The monies, however, were lost — $5.2 million in private by invitation-only poker games alone.

Ruderman, whose Ponzi scheme looted money out from investors from 2003 to 2009, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison.

Meanwhile, the lawsuit filed against Maguire is seeking to revoke the sum the actor won in those games, plus interest. According to a spokesperson of the trustee the 35-year-old actor is not entitled to keep the winnings of more than $311,00 because it constituted “fraudulent transfers” of their money.

Maguire, who also appeared in the films “Seabiscuit” and “Cider House Rules”, could not be reached for comment.

Looks like Spidey has been caught in his own web of clandestine activities.
