Taking a break from the hamster wheel of Big Brother 13 for a moment, we bring you some news about a former Big Brother: All Stars winner who’s in a spot of legal trouble.
Mike “Boogie” Malin (real name: Michael Carri) was featured on season two of Big Brother and later went on to win the grand prize of $500,000 on Big Brother 7: All Stars. Since Big Brother, he has continued to do a bit of television and movie work here and then, including co-starring with VH1 reality TV star Lonnie Moore on Famous Food.
Moore and Malin, long-time friends, are also in the restaurant business together. And that’s where the Big Brother winner is having some issues. Shereen Arazm, a partner of Malin and Moore in the Geisha House, LLC restaurant group, has filed a lawsuit against them claiming they embezzled money from the business.
The lawsuit brought against Malin and Moore claims the two stole money from the restaurant company to “support their lavish party-boy lifestyles.”
They gambled away hundreds of thousands of dollars that never belonged to them, they used some of the stolen monies to pay for sex, and they traveled the world at Arazm’s and the restaurant group’s expense,” the lawsuit claims.
The lawsuit also alleges that Malin used company funds to engage in ““multiple sexual encounters with various older men during which Malin would live out fetish role play fantasies.”
Obviously, Malin is none too pleased about the lawsuit against him or the alleged dirty laundry of his sex life airing in the public forum. Malin has filed his own lawsuit against Shereen Arazm claiming that she attempted to extort money from him to keep her from filing her lawsuit. He also claims Arazm and her lawyer, Marty Singer, tapped his phone calls and hacked into his email illegally.
Singer told TMZ.com that Malin’s claims against his client are totally false and completely fabricated.
This isn’t the first time Malin has been in a legal trouble, although luckily for him he seems to have avoided getting arrested this time around.
In 1997, Malin was arrested for breaking into the Warner Brothers Pictures lot to take photos and videos of Batman & Robin. He was later sentenced to three years of probation after pleading no contest to charges of trespass, property damage, malicious mischief and carrying counterfeit government ID.
Malin found himself under arrest again for assault in 2007 after an altercation at the 2007 World Series game between the Red Sox and the Colorado Rockies.
