Chuck may not like socialism, but he didn’t mind making money selling booze and whores in Russia. Beverly Hills casino was located at 1 Kudrynskaya in downtown Moscow and was a hot destination a decade ago. It was famous for its criminal element and its high class hookers. In fact working girls not only lined the front of the casino, they also worked the floor. They charged ‘the going rate’ on par with the other high brow gentlemen’s clubs in town.
It seems like casinos were one of Chuck’s favorite investment vehicles (as is with all good Christians). Here is an excerpt of an article about a deal gone bad in Lebanon.
Court of Appeal Cuts Damage Award Against Chuck Norris Over Soured Deal to Reopen Casino in Lebanon
By a MetNews Staff Writer
This district’s Court of Appeal has upheld a ruling holding actor Chuck Norris liable in connection with his role in a failed deal to reopen a long-closed casino inLebanon, but has substantially cut the damage award.
Div. Five said the award of $169,000 to Falcon Group, the promoter of the proposed casino, wasn’t supported by substantial evidence and cut it to $55,000.
Norris allegedly became involved in the Lebanese discussions through Russian-American businessman Nikolaj Vissokovsky II, who Norris met on a visit toRussia in 1992. Vissokovsky brought Norris into the Lebanese discussions, according to testimony, after Vissokovsky was introduced to Falcon’s principal, entertainment producer Roger Kalousz, by an acquaintance.
Falcon claimed to have spent $285,000 on the casino project before it learned in 1995 that Norris was pulling out. Norris, who reportedly owns small interests inLas Vegas casinos, later invested $1.5 million in a Moscow casino project at Vissokovsky’s urging and lost every penny of it, according to newspaper accounts and testimony in the Falcon case.
Falcon sued Norris; his manager, Myron Emery, who allegedly handled the details of Norris’ proposed involvement on the actor’s behalf; and Vissokovsky. Falcon sought huge damages, but jurors concluded that the defendants didn’t commit fraud, didn’t misrepresent facts, and intended to perform.
The jury did find, however, that Falcon paid $169,000 pursuant to a valid contract prior to its abandonment or rescission, and Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Caesar Sarmiento awarded judgment in that amount.
Wow, lucky break. When your in bed with the Russian mafia, you are lucky to make it out alive.
Since his wild mafia, liquor, and whoring days Chuck has been in deep prayer and his submissive wife hasn’t said a word.
