Former Supermodel Janice Dickinson Files Bankruptcy

Posted By Allmand Law Firm, PLLC || 29-Apr-2013

Janice Dickinson, 58, also known as the world's first supermodel, filed for bankruptcy protection after owing creditors close to $1 million. Her creditors include the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and unpaid bills from plastic surgery performed by multiple doctors. Dickinson is known as one of the most successful models in the world when her modeling career kicked off in the late 1970s after being turned down several times by model guru Eileen Ford.

Documents related to the filing state Dickinson owes multiple creditors with the IRS being the largest while being owed roughly $500,000 in unpaid taxes that accumulated over the past decade. Back taxes are also owed to California and New York state. Other creditors include Beverly Hills dermatologist Arnold Klein for $8,000 for Botox injections and another $8,000 to a Beverly Hills Anti-Aging Center. Dickinson has dealt with other financial woes including $43,000 tax lien in January 2012. She was facing eviction after falling behind 3 months' rent on her Los Angeles home which was close to $6,000.

Dickinson was turned down several times by Eileen Ford before eventually being signed with Ford Models in 1978. She has graced the cover of Vogue magazine 37 times. She is also known for various television appearances and shows including being a judge on America's Next Top Model and starting her own agency with the show The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency. It is rumored that she may have undergone most cosmetic/plastic surgery procedures including lip and fat injections and face, eye, and brow lifts.
