小编摘要:因蜘蛛侠系列走红的男星托比·马奎尔最近却陷入了麻烦。近日,他因参与非法赌博成了被告。

在赌博中赢钱无可厚非。但如果你参加的是非法赌博,那就是你的不对了。而如果你所赢得的钱是对方非法诈骗而来的呢?那么,等待你的也许就是法院的传票了。近日,因参演蜘蛛侠系列而走红的男星托比·马奎尔(Tobey Maguire)就遇上了这样的麻烦。

此次托比所惹上的案子只是对冲基金经理布拉德利-朗德曼(Bradley Ruderman)案件的其中一部分。这位经理有过前科,曾经在2003年的时候被判入狱十年,后来在2009年被释放。去年八月他在法庭承认诈骗、私用客户原本用于投资的巨款,其中有520万美元都在牌桌上输了出去。





Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire has found himself in a real-life sticky situation: The actor is being sued for his winnings in a series of high-stakes poker games, according to court papers.


Maguire, 35, allegedly took part in the twice-weekly games along with other celebrities and high rollers in exclusive hotels, including The Four Seasons and the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The lawsuit stems from Maguire's connection to Ponzi-schemer Brad Ruderman, the CEO of Ruderman Capital Partners, who allegedly lost $25 million of investor money – and from whom Maguire alone won more than $300,000, according to the suit.

Because the games – no-limit Texas Hold 'em with a $100,000 buy-in – weren't licensed with the state of California, lawyers for the clients who lost money to Ruderman maintain that Maguire's winnings are fair game to recoup and return to scammed investors.

The actor has hired a lawyer to fight the allegations against him. His rep has not commented.

"As part of the scheme, funds invested in [Ruderman] were transferred to persons such as Defendant [Maguire] who received the funds on account of Ruderman's gambling losses and on account of Defendant's gambling winnings," the suit reads.

Maguire is "not entitled to receive the transfers from the Debtor, which transfers were [comprised] of improperly-diverted investor funds."

The alleged mastermind of the operation said in a deposition that Maguire was a frequent player in the games, according to the suit.

Ruderman was convicted on two counts of wire fraud and two counts of investment adviser fraud, and is currently in jail in Texas and due to be released in 2018.

Other celebrities taking part in the games included Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, according to reports, though they are not being sued.

Participants facing lawsuits for their winnings include The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes and Welcome Back, Kotter star Gabe Kaplan, among others.

So far, authorities have received no criminal complaints regarding the alleged card games, but experts believe the games could trigger inquiries from the Internal Revenue Service.
