Blind Items Revealed

November 1, 2013

This B list reality star who got his fame on an A list network reality show has been having trouble paying his monthly fee to a group of men who require a payment from the star every month. It is a common practice where he is from but it is usually athletes who are forced to pay. His income has declined though and now the men are threatening to hurt his A list celebrity girlfriend.

Maksim/Kate Upton

methinks this was revealed before.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Fucking Russians. Didn't an ex-Red Wing quasi admit to being shook down?

Seachica said...

This wasn't revealed, but a blind was revealed that Maks carries $50k cash around with him in a briefcase at all times. Very similar reasons -- you don't mess with the Russians.

Blondie! said...

Speaking of Russians--did anyone see Viggo Mortenson in Eastern Promises??

what a mess said...

Viggo. Love him no matter what nationality he plays. That sauna scene in EP was brutal.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Yep. Love Viggo. Great actor and baby daddy of one of my favorite people ever, Exene.

This is common practice in the US as well, most notably among athletes and rappers. They get taxed and/or extorted once they make it big.

Blondie! said...

Viggo is amazing. And yes, full frontal in Eastern Promises!
Need VIP to do the image clicky thing

Violet617 said...

Well the threats must not bother her too much... didn't Enty post a Blind Item about a reunion of sorts last week in Miami???? Maybe Kate likes to live on the edge.

TalksTooMuch said...

Yea, Blondie! I think we saw ALL of Viggo Mortenson in that movie. He is just such a fantastic actor, inhabits every role

Count Jerkula said...

@One Eye: I think Fedorov. Maybe Kovalev, from Rangers and other teams.

Blondie! said...

@TTM He's brilliant, sexy and omg, that body! Could spend days on that playground!

TalksTooMuch said...

It's a rare mainstream movie that I walk out of the theatre thinking I could identify the main actor naked and bent over. Especially after A History of Violence. I never could look at stairs the same way...

Blondie! said...

I only saw that movie once, years ago, yet the image of Viggo's body is etched in my mind.

Snit said...

What is the Monthly Fee for? I must be thick cuz I cannot figure out what the group does for him.

sandybrook said...

Hes a bit safer now. The Olympics are over and the mob has progressed over to the Ukraine to fix election results in May.

Blondie! said...

Snit-the fee is to leave him alone. It's protection money. They take a percentage of what he makes and they let him live.

OneEyeCharlie said...

@Snit: The fee is what they pay to not have the shit kicked out of them; or worse. The Russian criminal element was already a bunch of hard cases. They had to be to survive under the old Soviet regime. With the collapse of the USSR, a lot of ex-KGB also turned their talents elsewhere.

Sherry said...

@Violet: I'm guessing Kate doesn't realize that she's in danger of being shook down. I'm sure she's aware of the Russian mafia because those Russian models pay for protection too.

Where's VIP when you need her for some good clicks? In fact where has she been lately? Haven't seen her much this week.

auntliddy said...

Hes such a tool.

Snit said...

Thanks Blondie and One-Eyed..but what did he do that he must pay the Russian Mob to leave him alone? Or did they just randomly pick on him cuz he's a tool...erm celebrity?

Blondie! said...

He (possibly) didn't do anything other than be born in Russia. The mob could have also helped him emigrate.
Even today it is very hard to emigrate from Russia.
To be a target for the Russian Mob, all you have to do is be Russian. They'll find a way to make you pay. He might have relatives back home and they could be used as leverage against him.
I'm just speculating--don't take anything I'm writing here as gospel.

LowKey said...

Yeah, this has been revealed.

Chief2224 said...

Oh God, I love Kate Upton. If anything happens to that gorgeous face - or worse,those beautiful breasts - because of that tool, I'll give him a beat down myself.

Snit said...

By god, my gossip must be gospel!! tee hee!! Thanks Blondie...I can see how immigration could be easier with a little help. Makes sense to me!

Blondie! said...

Snit-My pleasure! think about all those mafia movies or stories about the Kray brothers. They take over a neighborhood and tell all the store owners that in order for the stores to stay safe they need to pay mafia/Kray brothers protection money.
The store owner says who do I need protection from, they reply, "me!"

Wen said...

Maks is Ukrainian, not Russian. Even scarier.

Count Jerkula said...

@wen: a blood Ukie or a Russian from the Ukraine. Huge difference.

di butler said...

This is why I commented about his suitcase o cash. He knows what's up. Greasy mo fo.

di butler said...

Kate Upton drinks like a fish. Hope she's banking her cash, her tittays are going to drop like a Cali mansion in a mud slide.

fancyscreenname said...

@di
Well now...
I thought u looked familiar.

((Anxious pause...clearing throat))

Have u ever worked at a Victoria's Secret in the Philly area?
((Vicious side eye))
;^)

Lady Heisenberg said...

Bwahaha omg just got that mental image seared into my head LOL
Girl will be ok. She's got politicians in her family and that Whirlpool fortune

Fun Fact:Whirlpool Corporation was one of the first companies to offer paid vacation to employees (1917) and mutual funds/financial savings plans (1937). Woot woot!

Sis said...

Love Viggo, and yes where is VIP, we need our nakee pics dammit!!
