Despite not being in the Spider-Man franchise anymore, Tobey Maguire finds himself in a sticky situation as he is being sued for a nice chunk of change in the now exposed exclusive high-stakes poker circle with other known celebrities (Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon - just to name a few). Complete details of the incidents are pretty much scattered so it's still unclear.
Radar Online reports that Maguire is being sued for $311,000 he had won in Texas Hold 'em poker games from hedge fund manager Brad Ruderman, who is now currently in prison. Supposedly, Ruderman was gambling with money from his investors - around $5.2 million, which is only a small amount from the total amount he had stolen - and used to hold the poker games for about 3 years.
No one really knows what will happen next. Despite Maguire being a regular in the illegal underground poker clubs (in California), the crime is never really prosecuted.
Meh. Not the best habit to have in the world, but whatever. Here at Joonbug, we don't judge how you like to party. Just...don't go overboard. Let us throw your next big bash for you! Hopefully your special day will be better than poor Tobey's.
