Celebrity Poker Ringleader Allegedly Attacked By Thugs

What do Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Ben Affleck have in common?

All were  part of an illegal celebrity poker cohort held on the West Coast, with a “stunning Brunette” named Molly Bloom as card dealer, describes the Post. The sibling of Olympic skier and Philadelphia Eagles player Jeremy Bloom then relocated her games to New York City, where she encountered a much less congenial crowd.

According to the Post, Bloom “was forced to flee her Upper West Side apartment for the West Coast after two “thugs” roughed her up for fear she was blabbing to the feds.”

Too bad she’s also liable for more than $100,000 for negligence in paying taxes while living in the Big Apple.

Unbeknownst as to why she was targeted, rumors have circulated that Bloom was involved with state-based federal authorities, which attracted the tough guys. With quite a bit on her table, Ms. Bloom’s poker games seem to have come to a halt.

Her lawyer is unsure whether she’s left The Big Apple for good, but he’s affirmed she is done with the games.
