Y&R and Criminal Minds Star Shemar Moore Has Over $60,000 Stolen From Him By Former Guest-Star Turned Business Partner!

The Young and the Restless Daytime Emmy-winning Shemar Moore (Ex-Malcolm), who went on to star for 11 seasons on Criminal Minds as Derek Morgan was in a courtroom in San Fernando, California on Wednesday of this week.  It all happened because of an actor who guest-starred on two episodes of the CBS procedural drama back in 2013, who pleaded no contest to charges that he stole more than $60, 000 from Mooore! According to the L.A Times: actor Keith Tisdell, 42, agreed to repay Moore, 46, the sum of $61,084.

Prosecutors charged that Tisdell took the money after he befriended Moore when they appeared in the same Season 8 episode. Tisdell was playing a character named Rodney Harrison. Shemar told the judge ahead of the sentencing of Tisdell that, “In bringing that story to life, we became friends. … We went into business together.”

That business Moore is referring to is none other than Shemar’s famous Baby Girl LLC, which sprung out of Moore’s favorite catch-phrase on Criminal Minds,  “Baby girl”.   However, Baby Girl LLC was started as a charity to help battle multiple sclerosis, a disease from which his mother suffered.  Tisdell was involved with the organization. Records show he was arrested on suspicion of embezzlement in January but ultimately admitted to grand theft.

During their friendship, Moore said he bought Tisdell $10,000 rims for his car, funded shared overseas vacations and gave him up to $20,000 to help with expenses. When an audit revealed cash from the organization was missing, Moore confronted Tisdell, who denied stealing the money, the actor said in court.

Shemar went on to say before the sentencing: “I’ve done a lot for him because he had me, my friends fooled.  I’m not here for money. I’m here because he betrayed a friendship. This is not OK. You don’t do this to people.”   In the end, Tisdell’s attorney gave Moore $5,000 worth of money orders. Tisdell has to repay about $56,000 in the near future,  or he could end up in jail.

What do you think about Moore being swindled by his friend and business partner? Do we all need to heed the warning and be much more careful in who we trust in our lives?  And on a side note: do you hope Shemar will come back home to Y&R somehow, someway in the near future?  Share your thoughts below!

That’s an odd theft, Jimmy! The thief must’ve wanted the shoes for their own dolls or he or she has an even odder foot fetish!

Oh, my, Jimmy. I still have my Barbies. None of them has shoes. That’s quite a feat, my friend. How did your daughter manage to hold on to those tiny little shoes? Mine always got stuck in the vacuum cleaner….Shoes are typically first to go missing on Barbies. LOL.
I’m with 4ever. Weird thief with a Barbie foot fetish.
Poor Shemar!!!! That’s a bummer….not so much the theft ; but being betrayed by a friend. WOW!! We live and learn. Be more visceral in judging people, maybe?

My God—I feel so bad for Shemar. Nobody deserves this and how he got trampled on is a crying shame. I have had the same done to me but not to the extreme that was done to Shemar. I am glad he will have some closure to this I hope.

As far as I’m concerned, that Keith Tisdell clown is nothing but an embezzler and a con artist.

Just saying……….

It’s a shame. Glad Shemar took him to court. It is not okay to do that. Shemar did a lot for him, was a very generous friend, and Tisdell took advantage of that.

How long does he have to repay the money? I doubt he’ll be getting other acting jobs.

Now everyone thinks Shemar is gay. Huh. I pray not.

I don’t see any of these comments indicating what you’re suggesting, pat.

You must be referring to comments on other sites or your friend, family and neighbors.

Maybe people think that because there isn’t much documented dating history between Shemar and women. Or is it because he so easily trusted a man with so much of his money? Could it be because he’s been seen with the thief many times at different places? Possibly the concern is Shemar paid the man’s living expenses and had shared vacations together?

For whatever reasons you or others have for suspecting him of possibly being gay, why would you be praying for him to not be gay? He is what he is already. Praying won’t change his sexual orientation.

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.
