EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS: Molly Bloom Responds To Poker Lawsuit

An FBI investigation revealed that Ruderman, the CEO of Ruderman Capital Partners, was the mastermind of an elaborate Ponzi scheme, and used the hedge fund to pay off his monster gambling debts. Ruderman is currently in jail in Texas until 2017.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported Tobey Maguire, 35, won more than $300,000 from Ruderman, and is also being sued by Ehrenberg. Bloom was also roughed-up after fleeing from Los Angeles to New York. Insiders connected to the game speculate that the mob may be responsible for her beating.
