Kim Kardashian Owes Her Dentist Over $3K — Why Isn’t She Paying Up?
Kim Kardashian seems to make — and spend — more money in a single day than the average American makes in a year, so why are sources claiming she’s behind on her bills?
TMZ reports that, way back in 2001, when Kim was known for little more than being Paris Hilton’s party pal — just a twinkle in the eye of our collective consciousness — she had a little bit of dental work done. IT's par for the course with any appearance-conscious celeb. Kim had her silver fillings replaced with cuter, less noticeable porcelain ones, and was handed a bill. The problem? She never paid.
Kim’s former dentist, Dr. Craig Gordon, took Kim to court for the unpaid bill and, when the increasingly busy star didn’t show, he was handed down a default judgment for $1,605.73.
Unfortunately for Dr. Gordon, Kim didn’t pay that, either.
Now, over a decade since Kim had her smile spruced up, the judgment and the interest on it have ballooned to nearly $3,500.
Of course, with a never-ending supply of mouths to work on, Dr. Gordon doesn’t have the time to track his former patient down himself. He’s hoping someone else will do that when he sells the judgment, which he believes could be worth a whopping $13K, thanks to its “collectible value.”
Are you surprised that Kim skipped out on her dentist’s bill?
