Billy Blanks

Judge CRUSHES Scammers Who

Stole $1.1 Mil from Tae Bo Boss

1/12/2012 2:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Blanks
Two scumbags who worked for Billy Blanks better have brushed up on their Tae Bo ... 'cause they're heading to federal prison after stealing more than $1.1 million from the fitness icon.

According to the United States Attorney's Office, Blanks hired Rhenee Foster and Demetria Gutierrez to handle his personal and professional finances.

Instead, the women stole a TON of cash and blew it on things like fancy clothes, vacations and "down payments on several Range Rovers."

Officials say the women were feeding Blanks false statements to conceal their scheme.

The women both pled guilty to bank fraud last year -- but today, they were each sentenced to 33 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $1,119,000 in restitution.

I just do not understand these celebrities not paying their own bills. You gotta watch your money closely.

I just read about this a few days ago regarding some Law & order actress that had over $1 M stolen.

***** LESSON OF THE DAY *****

PAY YOUR OWN BILLS! TRUST NO ONE!

You are going to hire two women with first names like Rhenee and Demetria to control your finances? Billy Blanks...you deserve what you got. You, my good man, are an idiot. You hire ghetto to control your money, you are going to get ghetto for the bottom line.

"Shoe shine...shoe shine....shoe shine". Hard to do Tae Bo with a straight face whilst Billy is barking his -isms!

Demetria... I had to read that thrice to figure out the name wasn't Dementia. Reckon it's rather close, innit?
